Only three weeks remain in this season of NBC’s The Voice, and Baylor sophomore Holly Tucker is still alive and kicking among the show’s final six contestants.
Fan voting (no doubt helped along by you, Baylor Nation) has helped Tucker outlast 67 of the 73 artists who have performed on the show this spring. Tucker will perform again tonight (NBC, 7 p.m. CT); after the show, her fans (dubbed “Hollstars”) will once more have 12 hours to show their support by voting for Tucker on NBC.com and the show’s Facebook page, by texting (Sprint customers only) and calling, and by purchasing her single on iTunes. Individuals can vote up to 10 times in each manner, but only between 9 p.m. CT Monday and 9 a.m. CT Tuesday. Results will be announced on the show Tuesday evening.
Tucker’s performance of “How Great Thou Art” two weeks ago drew incredible praise leading off the show barely 24 hours after an EF5 tornado struck Moore, Okla. A week later, the sophomore business/Spanish double major got her coach, country superstar Blake Shelton, to do a “sic ‘em” on national TV in front of 11 million viewers; a short YouTube clip of the moment now has more than 55,000 more views.
Tune in tonight, then cast your vote to help a Baylor Bear take one step closer toward her dream!
Sic ’em, Holly!
