As viewers saw in a montage on Tuesday night’s episode of “The Voice,” the judges did not turn around for Lexington teen Sydney Cubit.
But despite not advancing to the live competition, Cubit’s mother says that the 16-year-old Henry Clay High School student enjoyed and grew from the experience.
“It was an honor to be part of it,” said Allison Cubit, who said Sydney was recruited to audition for “The Voice.” “Eventually everyone is told no, except for one person.”
Cubit said that Sydney was grateful to be among the final 100 that actually got to perform before judges Adam Levine, Gwen Steffani, Pharrell Williams, and Blake Shelton after tens of thousands auditioned.
“It was probably the most uplifting part of the whole experience,” Allison Cubit said. “They spent so much time with her giving her feedback that was really helpful.
“It’s a real confidence boost being part of the mix, and a validation to have the show or the judges see and affirm what you’re doing.”
Meeting other contestants, Cubit learned that many had been through the audition process a few times already. So who knows? This may not be the last time “The Voice” hears from Sydney Cubit.
