“Extra” caught up with Bria and Tess backstage for an emotional interview. Here is what they had to say:
Bria Kelly: Team Usher
Save Me Song: Heart’s “Crazy on You”
Takeaway Moment: “Blind auditions were the most fun. It was the most nerve-wracking, but for me it was my best moment on the show. It was the moment I got the most recognition for what I could do and it is where I was myself the very most.”
What’s Next: “First I have to go home and graduate, that’s a big one on my list. After that I’m looking to cut a record somehow and work on my music, and even mentor other kids who want to come on a singing show… [My album will be] an R&B rock type record. I want to have old school vocals, but with an R&B backing track basically. I want to have the grit in my voice but with modern music.”
Tess Boyer: Team Shakira
Save Me Song: Pink’s Who Knew
Saying Goodbye: “I honestly hugged Shakira and cried my eyes out which is awesome, but she was tearing up talking about how upset she was, but how truly proud of me she was. I snuck in a little bit about how maybe when she goes on tour I could open up for her (laughs).”

What’s Next: “I want to cut a record, I want to tour, I want to literally dive into the career that I’ve always wanted and that this show has allowed me to pursue. It would definitely be a pop album, I think more pop soul. A little more Kelly Clarkson, maybe a little more groovy… very compelling stories wrapped into power vocals… definitely be looking for new music. As soon as I can, I’m going to be at the studio. I co-write with my brother so we have a few things up our sleeves that we are ready to start working on and show America.
