As the finale of The Last Voice Standing Competition approaches, the audience is left with less and less of their favorites.
For the semi-finals, the remaining contestants are Aubrey Nordstrom, Bethany Winder, and Christian Van Hoose.
The contestants that left the competition last week are Heather Christensen, Adam Christensen, and Kailee Boren.
Though these contestants left the show, they gave words of encouragement to the remaining finalists.
Heather Christensen, a freshman majoring in general studies, said she is thankful for the opportunity to participate in the competition and looks forward to the other performances.
“I am very excited about the ones remaining,” she said. “They have done so awesome this far.”
She said she cannot wait for the finale.
“I knew from the beginning that their voices were special,” Heather Christensen said. “I am excited to hear what they come up with to wow the judges for the finale. Good luck to all of them.”
Adam Christensen, a junior studying biology, also wants to see them do their best.
“I think the three winners definitely deserved the chance to be in the finale,” Adam Christensen said. “They’ve all got really awesome voices. The only words I have for them is to go all out and make us all proud.”
Kailee Boren, a sophomore studying Arts, said each contestant is unique in his or her own way.
“They all sounded great on Wednesday,” she said. “I really enjoyed competing with them. Each of the contestants has a unique style and timbre. Each of the girls has a nice deep voice, and Christian does well rocking the stage.”
Boren said she believes they will do well.
“Just hang loose and have fun,” she said. “I’m sure they’ll all do great, and I’m excited to hear them.”
All three finalists will be given the opportunity to sing three songs of their choice and one of those songs will be with a live band. The next and last show will be the finale on March 18 in the Oscar A. Kirkham Auditorium at 8 p.m, and tickets will be $3.
