You may have missed Michelle Chamuel’s battleround performance of “Titanium” on last night’s episode of The Voice. That’s because, for some unknown reason, NBC chose to do a “summary” clip of the performance instead of the full package, performances, and judging discussions most other contestants received. We’re bummed about that, but are nonetheless excited to learn that Usher named Michelle Chamuel as the winner in her matchup!

In an interview with After Ellen recently, Michelle reflected on her identity as an artist:

I don’t think of myself as “a lesbian musician” or a “Jewish artist.” It’s not one and alone. I think of myself as a musician. I’m not in to labels, which makes it so that I don’t live by them anyway, so I’m not trying to fit into a category. I think people should do whatever they want. Look. I have a straight leg and a gay leg [shows us her one shaved and one unshaved leg].

Here’s the brief summary clip you may have missed:
