The show released a preview clip from Monday’s new episode, featuring an emotional moment between Taylor, coach Kelly Clarkson, and artist Melinda Rodriguez. Check it out below.
Taylor Swift’s Emotional ‘The Voice’ Moment
Melinda shared that she would be singing Mariah Carey’s song “Always Be My Baby” in honor of her brother Chris. She added that he’s Taylor’s “biggest fan,” explaining that he has all of her album titles as tattoos. (Melinda also has a tattoo that says “Fearless” in honor of Taylor.)
The 23-year-old got emotional as she shared that Chris just got called in for a heart transplant, and told her she couldn’t leave the show to be with him, “because what if it’s Taylor Swift [as the mentor]?”
“Chris has to wake up,” Melinda said. “Because there’s no way I can’t tell him about this. That’d be the world’s biggest injustice.” Taylor was touched, and asked for an address to send Chris gifts.
What Is Taylor Swifts’ Role As Mega-Mentor On ‘The Voice’
The preview of Taylor Swift’s appearance also includes some of her advice for Melinda’s performance. She and Kelly Clarkson come up with an idea for Melinda to start the performance on the chorus of the song.
Taylor also advises Melinda to show “a mischief, and a flirtation, and a confidence” during her performance. Taylor and Kelly are both rocking out in their seats during her rehearsal. We’ll have to wait until the show airs to find out how Melinda does against her Knockout competitor Jake Hoot.
