According to a poll by GoldDerby, viewers are hoping for a win by Maelyn Jarmon. The 26-year-old is from Texas, and currently lives in New York City. According to her NBC bio, her journey to The Voice hasn’t come without its obstacles. Maelyn had tubes inserted in her ears at 2-years-old that have left her with deaf in her right ear and with 80% of hearing in her left ear. She continued to explore and study music, however, and became heavily involved in musical theater. When she was 17, she moved to NYC to give Broadway a shot. Five years later, at 21, she decided to step away from her Broadway ambitions and is focusing on creating original music.
GoldDerby shows fans voting for Gyth Rigdon in second place. Rigdon is a 25-year-old singer from Singer, Louisiana. He grew up working on his family’s racehorse farm. He was 15 when he became involved in music. NBC writes, “At 17, his father booked him a three-hour show at a biker bar, and he has been playing gigs there ever since. Gyth took his show on the road for a few years and came back a hometown hero after sharing the stage with artists such as Jake Owen and Gary Allen.”
Whether or not these two will take the lead has yet to be seen. For now, it all comes down to their performance tonight.
The Voice premiered on April 26, 2011, and awards each season’s winner with $100,000 and a record deal with Universal Music Group.
