NC State’s Kat Robichaud showed her softer side on a live broadcast of the The Voice last night, singing Mary Lambert’s “She Keeps Me Warm.” It was a bit of a change-up for the glam rocker who previously belted out songs like “You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morissette.
Robichaud, who received a degree in graphic design at NC State in 2006, is one of 20 vocal artists aiming for the top spot on the NBC reality show, which will come with a $100,000 recording contract.
Last night, dozens of supporters crowded into The OC Bar & Grill in Raleigh to watch her take the stage, some carrying “Vote for Kat” and “Katpack” signs and stickers.
At this point in the show, viewers get to have their say — but we won’t know the results until Thursday.
There are four teams of contestants on The Voice, and the three contestants on each team who receive the lowest number of votes will be out of the competition—but the celebrity judges will have the opportunity to save one of those three. Robichaud is one of five vocalists on CeeLo Green’s team.
You can vote for Robichaud until 11 a.m. EST Wednesday. Here’s how: Call 877-553-3704 or go to the show’s website. You can vote up to 10 times per email and phone number. Thursday night’s episode airs at 8 p.m. EST.
