When Judith Hill failed to make it to the Top 6 on "The Voice," coach Adam Levine looked as though he just couldn't understand how it was possible. Now, two days later, even the former front-runner can't quite explain it.
"I don’t know what happened," Hill confessed during a Thursday morning visit to TODAY. "I keep scratching my head, like, 'What could it have been?' Maybe the song ('#thatPower') was too new, and it wasn't familiar to people. They didn't recognize it or something. You know, there's a lot of different reasons why ... I'm still figuring it out."
But now that the elimination -- which Hill compared to "The Hunger Games" -- is over, she's put the questions behind her.
"I just felt like I did my best, and I really enjoyed my time," she said.
It was Levine who helped her and fellow ousted singer Sarah Simmons put things in perspective.
"He reminded me that it's a game show," Hill explained. "He's like, 'You guys are so talented, and don't let this stop you. You've got a bright future ahead of you.' "
It's a future Hill is looking forward to.
"This was an amazing jump-start for me," she said of her time on "The Voice." "I'm so thrilled to have that opportunity, and I can't wait to continue on."
