CS4U: How has Selena Gomez helped you throughout the process along with you coach, Gwen?

Korin Bukowski: “I got to meet Selena Gomez at the battle round and she was an absolute delight. She was so nice and just made sure to let us know to be ourselves on stage and to emote well with the song that I was given. I was given Samson at battle. Thats a very emotional song. And she just tried to tell us to make sure that we were honest on stage and were comfortable with the stage and ourselves. And she helped us a lot with that. And Gwen yes, same thing. Shes always been telling me, I want that awkward, quirky girl to be on stage. I want that. And then one time I was like serious or something and she was goes, I dont like you like that. I dont like you serious. And I was laughing because I dont like when Im serious, too. I cant take myself seriously. But shes also helped me, you know, just embrace the person that I am and its ok to be who you are and it doesnt matter what people say about you.

CS4U: What is your favorite performance that you performed throughout your time on The Voice?

Korin Bukowski: “My favorite was actually my knockout. I really loved that song and I loved performing it and it was the most fun Ive had on the show in total.”

 

CS4U: Do you have a signature look or style? Something that screams Korin?

Korin Bukowski: “I just think my personality, honestly. Not saying I have the best personality, but definitely I think a lot of people can relate to it. Ive never been a comfortable person. Ive always been uncomfortable, and a lot of people think thats not ok. And I think Im an ambassador for saying that is ok and thats just who you are and just own it. So, maybe just that.”

CS4U: Would you recommend competitions such as The Voice to other young singers, such as a friend from home? If so, why or why not?

Korin Bukowski: “I say do it. You know, its an amazing experience. I do think you need to have a good head on your shoulders and be a little bit more resilient because it is hard. Its a competition, after all. And we like to call it The Hunger Games. Its fun and its great. You meet amazing people. You do amazing, incredible things. But it is hard. You grow like a family. You grow close to each other, and its hard to see them go. And its difficult to leave as well because, you know, you work on this show for so long, even prior to blind auditions you were working on this show. And its a little difficult to build yourself back up. So Id say do it if this is what you want to do and its your passion because if its your passion, youll let nothing get in your way. So I say do it.”

CS4U: So could you tell us a little bit about life behind the scenes at The Voice?

Korin Bukowski: “Thats my favorite part of the whole show, honestly. Its incredible to meet – like aside from meeting celebrities and having to work with them, that stuff is just amazing. Its dream world. But behind the scenes, you get to talk to such incredible people that are on the same journey as you and no one — not your best friends — will understand what you went through on this show, not a one. And all these people do. And to have such a support system with you and people understanding how you feel, what youre going through is just; there are no words for it. And its so much fun backstage. Behind the scenes is so much fun because were all jokesters and Ive made friends for life and we just have a blast.”

CS4U: Do you think this a friendship that is post-The Voice, one that you guys will continue throughout life and your careers?

Korin Bukowski: “Yes. Ive made friends for life here. You know, not only with the contestants but the cast – or the staff as well. Ive made friends for a lifetime.”

CS4U: Do you have a best friend on The Voice?

Korin Bukowski: “I would say I have three — Evan McKeel. Unfortunately, he left last week. Amy Vachal and then Jordan Smith, were all a big squad.”

CS4U: What advice would you have for young singers who admire you?

Korin Bukowski: “I have so much advice. What I would tell myself if I was younger is that dont let anyone tell you you cant, because you most definitely can do whatever you want to do. And its up to you to do it. Youre in control of what you do at this point in your life and further. I just want people to believe in themselves a little more because I didnt and I wish I did, because I might be here – I mightve been in this competition earlier. Who knows what couldve happened. I just want people who doubt themselves to not doubt themselves, and I want people to be comfortable and love who they are right now and be accepting of that because that is what makes you unique. Thats what you should be confident in and thats what people like seeing. They like seeing people who are confident in who they are and that will get you success. That will bring you success in life.”
