Filipino singing hopeful Jej Vinson has earned a slot in the top 24 of the American version of the singing competition “The Voice” after an applauded rendition of “Versace on the Floor.”
Vinson, from Kelly Clarkson’s team, performed the Bruno Mars hit curding Cross Battle round in the previous episode, where he faced off against contestant LB of Adam Levine’s team.
The final 24 contestants, revealed during the Wednesday episode of “The Voice” (Manila time), were determined by public votes.
On Instagram, Vinson expressed disbelief over his standing in the competition, in the caption of a photo of him in a hug with Clarkson.
“Top 24! [What the heck] guys! Thank you so much to everyone who supported me so far in this incredible journey. Words can’t even express how grateful I am.
“@kellyclarkson you’re incredible. Thank you for believing in me. I’m excited to learn more from you. Excited for next week! Again, thank you for all the support. Love you all,” he wrote.
