Season 22 ofThe Voice is underway, and the first round of blind auditions has been a blast so far. Many talented performers have impressed judges, and Parijita Bastola was one of them. Here, check out more about this contestant.
Bastola sang a rendition of “Jealous” by Labrinth that blew the judges away. John Legend was the first one to turn her chair around, but all of the judges quickly followed her. “You’re so in touch with your heart, and that is really incredible,” said Gwen.
However, at the end, Bastola decided to go with Team Legend, especially as she is into R&B and soul. While we don’t know yet how far she is going to make it on the show, she definitely is a contender to the title. You can watch The Voice on fuboTV (free-trial in the US).
