'The Voice' season 16 winner Maelyn Jarmon grateful to fans who voted, says crew backstage was like 'family'
In an exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide, Jarmon spoke about some fun behind-the-scenes moments and shared a message for fans who voted for her
'The Voice' season 16 recently came to an end after they revealed its winner in a star-studded grand finale that aired live last week. The series had award-winning artistes like Taylor Swift, Brendon Urie, Jonas Brothers, Halsey, Khalid, and BTS perform at the finale.
Maelyn Jarmon from team Legend was crowned the winner of season 16. The 26-year-old singer's win this season was a big one because it was John Legend's first time as a coach on the reality TV competition series.
It was a big win for Jarmon too because even though she is deaf in one ear she was able to overcome her difficulties and perform without any flaws. In an exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), Jarmon spoke about some fun behind-the-scenes moments and shared a message for the fans who voted for her.
Starting off talking about her fan base, Jarmon revealed she had no idea she would receive a major fan base when she auditioned for 'The Voice". "I really had no idea what to expect coming into this and I always told myself that I was just going to be honest and you know do what I love to do and music is subjective and not everyone is going to love what I do but there are the people that will and that's why I do this," she said.
Talking about what happens behind-the-scenes when they aren't shooting, Jarmon revealed they are all one big family. "Well, I mean, there's lots of stuff that happens and we do a lot of things, we record commercials and we have lots of rehearsals and recordings. It's so much fun. But you know, they have everybody running around backstage or always getting ready and makeup and fun things like that and everybody's joking around and the crew is just amazing and it's a big family by the end of it. We have a lot of fun together, amazing," she added.
Jarmon had a major fanbase rooting for her this season. Sharing a message for them she said, "I'm beyond grateful. Just I never knew I would make it this far, never thought I could do this and I would not have been able to do this without them and I'm just so grateful to everyone who voted and streamed and I hope that I will make you proud and I will get music to you very soon."
'The Voice' has been renewed for another season. It was also recently revealed that Adam Levine will not be returning as a judge the next season and will be replaced by Gwen Stefani.
