In this week’s shocker on hit reality series The Voice, popular contestant Karina Iglesias found herself booted out of the competition far too early. Upon learning of the elimination, Karina was gracious as usual…and she continued to be while tweeting about the experience later on.
It’s always tough when a talented singer is forced to leave The Voice, and such was certainly the case when Karina Iglesias’ surprising elimination occurred the other day. The results are even more shocking when you learn the slim margins by which Karina was barred from advancing in the competition. And to add to the bittersweet nature of the whole fiasco, Karina found her list of Twitter followers getting quite a bit longer both immediately prior to and in the aftermath of her elimination. She tweeted about this surge in social media activity, explaining, “19 followers short of the “10k” mark…#bittersweet.”
Bittersweet was also the adjective Karina used to describe how she felt about leaving behind fellow contestants Garrett Gardner, Sasha Allen and Kris Thomas. After the trio sent the eliminated contestant their best wishes, she responded with the following message: “gonna miss you guys….FOR REALZ…INSANELY! Kisses…” Karina also thanked NBC for allowing her access to such a unique experience, tweeting, I’d like to thank the show for the RIDE OF MY LIFE! From PAs to wardrobe, make-up and hair, I WILL MISS YOU ALL!”
It’s sad to see Karina Iglesias eliminated after making it so far on The Voice, but hey, sad eliminations are another unfortunate necessity in any reality competition!
