Melanie Martinez was a contestant on Season 3 of The Voice as part of Team Adam.

Remembered by her unique, breathy tone, the two-toned pattern in her hair, and for her creative spins on popular songs, Melanie quickly garnered attention on the show, and despite not being the strongest vocalist, managed to use her creativity and originality to make it to the Top 6, where she would be eliminated in 6th place.

Following her time on the show, she released a full-length album titled Cry Baby, and music videos accompanying each of the tracks. With her early popularity, she is widely known as the biggest star to ever come out of The Voice US.
