After weeks of teases, Candace Cameron Bure’s daughter Natasha Bure made her debut on “The Voice”!
The 18-year-old high school graduate, who is taking a year off before college to focus on music, took the stage during Monday’s blind audition episode hoping to make it to the next round. Her parents, Candace and former Russian hockey player Valeri Bure, were there by Natasha’s side as she embarked on her journey.
Though Candace is best known for playing D.J. Tanner on “Full House” and now “Fuller House”, Natasha admitted her mom was a novice when it came to the music industry, revealing that “she’s not musically gifted.”
Candace said that Natasha’s singing aspirations are 100 per cent her own dreams. “We’ve been hands off. This has been her thing,” said “The View” co-host. “We’ve stayed away, until right now, so this will be her accomplishment and nothing that we’ve done.”
Candace’s “Full House” co-stars Bob Saget and John Stamos (aka “Adam Levine”) shared a special video message for Natasha before her audition, wishing her the best of luck and telling her that they were “rooting for her.” How’s that for a boost of confidence?
Before Natasha took the stage, her emotions started to get the best of her and her parents were right there giving her words of encouragement. “Are you nervous? Let the tears come out. Get it out and then have a great time out there, OK? Don’t put any pressure on yourself,” Candace said as her daughter let the tears flow. “You’ll do great.”
When Natasha took the Voice stage, she sang a beautiful, rejiggered version of the Elvis Presley classic, “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” which prompted a chair turn by Adam Levine. Hooray!
Candace’s reaction, though, was priceless.
The audition wasn’t by all means perfect; Levine observed that Natasha started off sounding like a “self-assured girl singing really well,” but the second his chair turned, “you had a little bit of a nervous breakdown.”
The Maroon 5 frontman suggested that the one thing she perhaps should work on is “getting your nerves together” because “there’s something beautiful there.” Natasha admitted that her “mind isn’t nervous,” but sometimes her “body gets very nervous.”
“I’m really curious and really excited to see what we’re going to accomplish,” Levine said. “I’m really happy you’re on my team. Welcome!” We can’t wait either!
In August, Candace gushed over her daughter’s debut on “The Voice”, writing on Instagram “#ProudMama.”
“The Voice” airs Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
