Erin Martin Disses The Voice, Cee Lo Green

Erin Martin is example numero uno of why The Voice isn’t necessarily about…the voice. She the ex-model, Rock of Love wannabe whose singing “style” was uhm, interesting to say the least.

Who thought for a second that this vocally challenged singer would survive the viewer vote?   Her performance this week of “Walk Like an Egyptian” was just boring and her trainwreck duet of “What’s Love Got to Do With It” with The Sheild’s Brothers made for super-trainwrecky TV.

Now that she’s been eliminated (She was cut last night), Erin is pointing fingers.  She says she’s glad she’s off the show. And what’s more, she blames her coach, Cee Lo Green, for her early exit.

Well, I might concede the second point. Cee Lo’s song choices for her were ridiculous. But she didn’t have to sound like ass while singing them.  Here are Erin’s jaw-droppingly tactless remarks (Via Access Hollywood)

“Oh my God, I’m so glad to be over this competition. Yes, I’m over it,” Erin told’s Laura Saltman after Tuesday’s “The Voice” in Los Angeles, when asked if it was difficult to hear she’d been booted from the hit show. “[For] the blind audition I gave a fabulous performance, and for my last song I gave a fabulous performance, and for both of those songs I chose my song and the chips — not the chips, but like, the control was in my hands of the song and like, you know, how I sang it.

“When I gave that creative control over, it kind of just didn’t really go so well,” she added.

The former model also blamed her “Voice” coach, Cee Lo Green (and his song choices), for her early exit.

“I think it was a good lesson for Cee Lo in this particular instance that, you know, when you come across a voice like mine, you have to really nurture it and he wasn’t the right person to do that,” she said. “No offense to him, it just, he wasn’t… I’m the right person to nurture my voice.”
