'The Voice' Live Performance Week 1 Interviews!...

"The Voice's Moses Stone breaks boundaries as an MC in a singing contest"

Moses Stone is in the most unique position not just as a contestant on The Voice but as a rapper in the singing competition television game in general. In any other genre of music, covers of already existing, and more often than not, popular, songs are celebrated, let alone expected. They're the spec scripts of that industry; you need to showcase your own talent by taking something everyone already knows and doing it extremely well.

Clearly she likes to challenge herself, but when LA TV Insider Examiner caught up with her after the first "Live Elimination" round of The Voice in Los Angeles, Aguilera admitted that choosing such a wide range of team members-- and then deciding which one to "save" tonight-- didn't actually have anything to do with the trends in the music industry or the desire to "win"...
