If you were watching The Voice last week, then you may have recognized a familiar face.

Frenchie’s departure from American Idol made headlines back in 2003.
She advanced to the semi-final round when racy photos suddenly surfaced on the internet.
Producers chose to disqualify her from the competition, even though she was an early favorite on the show.
Since Idol, Frenchie’s had huge success on Broadway. She starred in the musical Rent and even scored a Grammy nomination for her work in the musical Ain’t Misbehaving.
And now she’s back and better than ever on NBC’s, The Voice!
Having endured the audition processes for both Idol and the The Voice, Frenchie explains what sets the NBC show apart from all other singing competitions:
I think The Voice is the first singing competition on television that’s truly been all about singing…it’s not a panel of non-singers judging a bunch of singers. It’s a panel of fellow artists who are not judging us, they’re saying, “This is where I think you can grow as a singer. And this is how I think I can help you do that.” Everybody’s serious. Everybody’s talented, including the judges.
