Filipina singer Rose Marie Velasquez makes it to the Knockout rounds of The Voice Romania Season 6.
The 28-year-old Filipina singer performed Maroon 5's "Sugar" during the Battle rounds of the competition. She was pitted against fellow contestant Mihaela Chisnencu.
The Voice Romania coach Smiley ultimately chose Mihaela to advance to the next round as part of his team.
The Romanian singer/songwriter felt that it was Mihaela who showed for progress as an artist, which is why he picked her for his team.
Fortunately, Rose Marie gets a second chance to win The Voice Romania after getting a "steal" from coach Tudor Chirila.
The actor/singer pointed out that he liked Rose Marie's performance better that Mihaela's.
The episode aired last Friday, November 11, on Romania's ProTV network.
In a short chat with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) via Facebook, Rose Marie praised her fellow competitor.
Rose Marie recalled, "Ok naman, napakabait na bata, agad kame naging close kahit papa'no nabigyan ko siya ng advice, kase pinanghihinaan siya ng loob.
"Sabi niya for sure matatanggal daw siya at ako iiwan, sabi ko, 'Wag mong isipin yon kase game lang naman to and think positive.' Kasi lagi siya nag kakamali minsan at napag sasabihan."
She added, "Nanghingi din siya ng sorry sa 'kin kasi nakalimutan niya yung lyrics niya after the battle sabi ko, 'Ok lang di naman ako yung pipili.'"
The Kapampangan singer, however, would've wanted to learn more from her chosen coach but Smiley, at that time, was busy with his other showbiz engagements.
She said, "Busy din siya kasi may mga shows din, 'di masyadong nakakapag-usap."
Rose Marie also expressed her gratitude towards her new coach, Tudor, for giving her a second chance.
The Voice Romania contestant told PEP, "I was really shocked and happy kasi Tudor is a rocker and sobrang malayo yung music ko sa kanya.
"Sobrang thankful ako and makikita mo talaga sa mukha niya na nagulat siya na iba pinili ni Smiley."
She also hopes that she will learn from her new coach. "Sana si Tudor mas matutukan niya kami kase gusto ko talagang me matutunan pa."
