Clifton's Rising Star Hailey Mia Wows Coaches On The Voice Finale
Tonight's Voice Finals featured all five finalists delivering their best performances of the season.
Clifton's own Hailey Mia opened the show with a rousing rendition of Olivia Rodrigo's hit "Deja Vu." The audience responded with wild applause and the coaches praised her remarkable poise under pressure and constant growth from week to week.
John Legend and Arianna Grande both expressed how proud they were of Hailey and how her control is remarkable for her age. Hailey's coach, Kelly Clarkson, emphatically recalled that Hailey can sing so many genres and this particular performance showed her pop-rock side which she said "is so rad!"
Hailey dedicated her second song to, "all the little boys and little girls who may be struggling to accept yourselves for who you are." She sang "I Don't Wanna Be You Anymore" by Billie Ellish. The Coaches agreed this was Hailey's best performance yet, full of heart and authenticity.
Kelly said that Hailey was "dripping with amazing tone." She also declared that Hailey is the one who has grown the most from the Blind Auditions to tonight's Finale.
If Hailey wins, she will be the youngest contestant to win at 14 years old, and the first from NJ in 5 years.
