Cole Vosbury was sad to leave The Voice competition at Top 5 earlier this week, but he seems to have his experience in perspective.
He tells Parade magazine that his mentor, Blake Shelton, is helping him get in touch with booking agents and managers. But that they BOTH knew Cole’s time had maybe come. Also, in the end, it might have been bad for the show if Cole had won.
We both talked about the fact that if he won again, it would have been a little too much anyway. And I knew that going in, so I thought ‘if he wins again, people are probably going to stop watching the show. If we know he’s going to win every year, what’s the point?’
Cole says his beard is the source of his powers. The hair people trimmed it up quite a bit on Monday. And then BOOM he was gone. Well, actually, it was that lazy Garth Brooks cover he performed, but I digress.
Interestingly, Cole admits to MTV that he was in good hands with Blake as a mentor. And that if he had stayed in Team Cee Lo, he wouldn’t have made it to Top 5. No kidding! Funny he says it out loud, though.
With the pressures of being a top five already high, Vosbury struggled with the extra load he carried: the “legacy” of Team Blake.
“I felt a lot of weight on my shoulders being the only person on Team Blake left because Team Blake is always really strong,” Vosbury said, “At this point they’re always in the finale and I just, kind of, felt a lot of pressure not to let him down and not let the Team Blake legacy down.”
While he’s still figuring out his niche, Vosbury now realizes his coach is “proud” of his journey and feels “vindicated,” adding his belief in ordered chaos because the sudden addition of an extra steal is what bought him an opportunity to get this far in the competition. “I think I ended up in the perfect spot, and I don’t know if I’d have made it to top five if I stayed with Team Cee Lo,” Vosbury says.
