Kelly advances on ‘The Voice’

Published 9:52 pm Tuesday, April 8, 2014

Smithfield High School student Bria Kelly’s success on NBC’s “The Voice” continued Monday night when she won another battle round.

Kelly san The Pretenders’ “I’ll Stand By You,” and Usher named her the winner of the night’s final battle, against co-contestant Madilyn Paige.

It was the last night of the battles, meaning the teams are now set for the playoffs. “No more steals; no more second chances. It’s win or go home for all the artists,” says a blurb on the program’s website.

Kelly, 18, is a frequent performer around the area, and has entertained audiences at Suffolk Farmers’ Market. In 2012, she was a semifinalist in “America’s Got Talent.”

A spokeswoman for “The Voice” said she did not know when Kelly’s next appearance would air.
