North Carolina native and current Raleigh, NC resident Kat Robichaud has been a performer on Season 5 of NBC’s The Voice for more than a month. She was the first performer to open up Season 5 and had three judges turn around. Ceelo, Christina Aguliera, and Blake Shelton all wanted Kat for their team. Adam was the lone holdout, a move he later described as “his biggest regret of the blind auditions”.

No matter. Kat chose Ceelo to work with and so far, it’s been a very sweet arrangement.

For the blind auditions, Kat sang the Kiki Dee song “I’ve Got the Music In Me”. From there, she entered a battle round where she had to duet the Aerosmith smash, “I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing” where she prevailed against EJ Manuel. In the Knockout Round, Kat fired up the crowd with an angsty performance of Alanis Morrissette’s “You Oughta Know” and now, on Tuesday night (11/5) Kat will be performing the most important show of her life.

Before making it on The Voice, Kat was the lead singer in the Raleigh band, The Design. They performed a mixture of original songs and cover tunes and could reliably be found playing at a Wild Wing Cafe in North Carolina, South Carolina, or Georgia, among other places. A chance encounter at the Wild Wing Cafe in Wilmington NC led to her connecting with Vinny Rich and Adam Pollock at The Creative Entertainment Network who was able to get her an industry audition for The Voice. The rest, as they say, is history.

If you’re in Raleigh on Tuesday night (11/5), be sure to join the Official Viewing Party at the OC Bar & Grill. They’ll have half priced wine and $1 dollar Miller Lites (to calm the nerves). More info about the party can be found on their Facebook event page.
