Philly dominated "The Voice" last night with two contestants making it through the blind auditions in the sixth season.
Lindsay Pagano has history in the music biz, including formerly holding a contract with Warner Bros. Claims to fame include touring with Dream Street and Aaron Carter, and singing the theme song for long-forgetten WB show "Maybe It's Me" from 2001. Pagano now works in a doctor's office and performs wedding gigs on the side. She wowed judge Shakira with her version of hometown gal Patti LaBelle's "Lady Marmalade."
Shakira also wanted Joshua Howard, but he chose judge Adam Levine instead after singing "This is What if Feels Like" by Armin van Buuren feat. Trevor Guthrie. Usually Howard performs in his band, Emjay, with sister Maria, but went at "The Voice" solo. In his bio, he calls his dad his inspiration for raising him and his siblings as a single parent. Aw!
Pagano and Howard aren't the only local "Voice" contestants. Christina Girmmie, from Marlton, got a rare four-judge turnaroud last week. There are three more episodes of blind auditions on "The Voice," which you can catch Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC at 8 p.m.
