Maelyn Jarmon of Team Legend beat Blake Shelton’s country singing contestants and emerged as the winner of ‘The Voice’ Season 16. With the voice of an angel and exceptional music skills, she managed to not only win the title but also garner a huge fan following.
Ahead of ‘The Voice’ Season 17 finale, Maelyn Jarmon caught up with MEA Worldwide (MEAWW). In conversation with us, she recounted her last performance on ‘The Voice’ Season 16 stage and the emotions she experienced prior to her win. When asked if she was preparing to win or exit the show last season, Jarmon responded, “You know what, at this point, I remember walking this carpet after I'd finished all my performances and I was just so proud.”
Although she was relieved and excited after delivering her last song, she did not worry about the outcome. “I didn't care about the outcome really.” She further added “I felt at ease. I mean the outcome could have been whatever and I would have been happy just because, this last week for these final four, it’s insane.” She also explained how the last week is crazy for the final contestants as they need to sing for millions of people and also keep their cool. The singer believes that itself is a win.
When asked if she had any advice for the winner of the current season, she was quick to respond that life is going to be different after the show ends. She further explained that a lot goes into establishing your career, starting with collaborating with a label but it takes time.
“But I would say, really hone in on who you are and know the kind of music you want to release and already be like a package deal. It's different because when you come off of this show and want while you are on the show, it's all about versatility and genre bending and being able to do all these different things. But once you're off, it's about focussing in. So you have to be ready for that as they want a finished product,” Jarmon told MEAWW.
