Minneapolis street performer misses cut on 'The Voice'


A 22-year-old street performer from Minneapolis in her bid to advance on NBC's "The Voice" Tuesday night, the Pioneer Press reports.

Betsy Barta sang Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain" on the reality competition, but couldn't get any of the prospective coaches to turn their chairs in the show's latest blind audition round.

Barta was the second Twin Cities-area singer this week who missed the cut following Rosemount's Landon Medvec Monday night.

Barta, was visibly upset after the missing the cut. Coach Adam Levine -- who remarked "she's good" while the singer was auditioning -- gave Barta a hug after her performance and encouraged the singer to audition again in the future.

So far this season, Eden Prairie singer Mark Andrew Pudas is the only Minnesotan to be selected to advance on "The Voice."

Pudas, who goes by Mark Andrew, picked singer Shakira to be his coach.

Last season, Eagan native Nicholas David finished third place on "The Voice" with coach Cee Lo Green.
