Agen secures spot in 'Voice' top 10

COREY MCMAKEN | The Journal Gazette

Local singer Addison Agen has made it into the top 10 on "The Voice."

The results of fan voting were revealed Tuesday night on a live episode of NBC's singing competition in which Agen also sang Fleetwood Mac's "Go Your Own Way" with her coach, Adam Levine, and fellow team member Adam Cunningham. Agen ranked No. 2 on the iTunes charts at the close of voting Tuesday. 

 

On Monday's live episode, Agen performed Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You," which was suggested for the Concordia Lutheran High School junior by fans via the show's mobile app.

Her performance had all four coaches on their feet.

"Great is great, and you are beyond great. You are gifted, it's not even a talent, it's a gift," said rival coach Jennifer Hudson, who urged the audience to vote for her even though Agen isn't on her team. "I can't wait for you to be on a record so I can hear it over and over and over again."

Levine said the coaches and the audience, which included Agen's mother, were moved by her performance.

"This performance of this particular song was, for you, Addison, the full realization of what your talent is," he said. "And this is the perfect moment to have shown it, because you move me. You inspire me. You inspire everyone you sing to. I think that this is potentially the winner of this show, but more importantly I think it's one of my favorite voices I've heard in a long time. You're incredible."

Agen will perform again live Monday before two competitors are cut the following night ahead of the show's semifinals.
