Amy Vachal was interviewed after being eliminated prior to the final in The Voice singing competition and touched upon the rumored close relationship with Adam Levine.
Even after leaving the show, rumors persisted in the tabloids about a possible intimate relationship between the Filipino American singer and her mentor/coach Adam Levine, lead singer for Maroon 5.
The alleged “flirting” between the two supposedly was affecting Levine’s already rocky marriage with super model Behati Prinsloo, often seen in Victoria Secret attire.
In the video interview, Vachal, who never addresses the rumors, made it clear that the relationship between her and Levine was not a romantic one. She saw him “like a brother.”
In other interviews, she plans on doing an album in the style that fans have become familiar – jazzy, sweet, sultry, alternative, indie – that’s difficult to categorize. That difficulty in categorizing her music may have been her undoing in the popularity contest The Voice, but it will please her growing fan base.
