According to Hirsch, It’s Hunte who has undergone the most dramatic transformation this season. ”Trevin to me is super fashionable and modern. He sings these ballad R&B songs, but my goal is just to make him really fresh and young. I think that’s where the twist is. He has a rock and roll sensibility and yet he’s singing these power ballads. I like the juxtaposition.”
While the high school student has embraced the flashy outfits that the wardrobe department puts together for him, Hirsch says that not every contestant is so willing. “Most people aren’t used to wearing shiny clothing, but it translates on stage and for the camera. The transition is getting them to accept the rhinestones and the metallics, which most people don’t wear on a daily basis. But once they see it, they’re sold.”
The two-night season finale of The Voice begins Monday, December 17 at 8PM.
