NBC’s hit singing competition, The Voice, returned for season 5 on Monday night and it may just be the stiffest competition that the show has ever seen. Among the standouts, a television star’s sister, who is trying to break free from her sister’s shadow.
If you don’t know her from The Big Bang Theory, then you might recognize Kaley Cuoco as the purple-clad, sarcastic genie in the Toyota commercials. Either way, she’s a household name and if you’re still scratching your head going “Kaley who?” then you need to immediately exit the rock from under which you’ve been living. You also need to familiarize yourself with the name Briana Cuoco, because she just might be a superstar in the making.
Briana is Kaley Cuoco’s little sis and personal assistant, and she’s getting a lot of buzz right now because it seems that the Cuocos may have not one, but TWO, stars in the family. During the season premiere, it was revealed that Briana did a blind audition for Season 5 of the The Voice. While there’s obviously no word yet on how she did, friends of the sisters are not surprised Bri scored a chance to sing for the judges. “She has a beautiful voice. She is phenomenal. She’s very, very talented,” says Mayim Bialik of The Big Bang Theory.
Blind auditions continue next Monday, but which episode Briana will appear on is anyone’s guess. Even Briana herself has no idea, tweeting “Wow wasn’t at my phone all afternoon and seeing everyone’s support for #thevoice when I get back is incredible!!! THANK YOU…There are 5 nights of blind auditions – I do not know when my ep will air but it’s comin.”
Are you surprised that Kaley Cuoco’s sister is also talented? Do you think it will help her with viewers votes that he sister is on one of the most watched television shows in America? Comment below and let us know.
