Rivera “Kills It” During Her First Live “The Voice” Performance

In her quest to advance to the next round on The Voice, Joselyn Rivera has Lovato nothing on the stage…

During the first night of live shows on NBC’s singing competition on Monday, the 17-year-old Latina pop sensation performed Demi Lovato’s “Give Your Heart a Break” during the “Live Playoffs.”

“I love this song because it give you a chance to show your range,” said Rivera in her pre-performance clip.

Looking like a pop star in her one-shoulder hot pink dress, black ankle boots and red streaks in her hair, the member of Team Adam impressed the coaches with her rendition.

“You always deliver when you get on stage; you’re one of the people we can all count on to be great,” said Voice coach Blake Shelton. “You look good on a big stage like this; you look like a star!”

Christina Aguilera, Rivera’s former coach before Adam Levine stepped in to “steal” her away, complimented her former protégé on her performance.

“You were working the stage,” said Aguilera. “Your smile lights up the whole room!”

And Levine was nothing short of pleased with Rivera’s performance.

“I can’t tell you how proud I am sitting here and knowing what we talked about. And all the things we discussed you did [them] so incredibly well,” declared Levine. “You did an incredible job, I am so proud. You killed it!”

But Rivera will have to wait until Thursday to find out if she’s earned enough votes from the public to stay in the competition. And if she doesn’t, she’ll have to see if Levine will pick her to move forward from the remaining three members of his team.
