Porter Recently Opened Up About Being Terrified After Winning ‘The Voice’
In a 2021 interview with the New York Post, Alisan Porter opened up about how she felt when she won the singing competition.
“It was sort of like, ‘I got this record deal, but what do I do now?'” she told the outlet. “Once you win, they’re on to the next season within two months and you’re a has-been. And I was, like, terrified that I wasn’t gonna use this momentum to make it in the music business. It was definitely not what I had expected.”
Porter also said that she experienced creative differences with the record label she was set to work with following “The Voice.”
“I knew I wasn’t gonna be the next Ariana Grande, but when you’re with a label who has Ariana Grande or people like that, that’s sort of their motivation,” she told the New York Post.
Coach Blake Shelton has previously commented on this as well.
“One of the frustrating things for me as a coach on this show year after year is they win this record deal with Universal, and so many times the ball’s been dropped,” Shelton shared.
Speaking of Ariana Grande, the superstar is set to join the coaching panel on NBC’s “The Voice” in season 21, taking Nick Jonas’s chair as he exits the show once again.
“The Voice” airs on Mondays at 8 p.m Eastern and Pacific on NBC.
