“I’m a mixture of blues and rock with a shot of Southern Comfort.” - Beverly McClellan

The openly lesbian, bald rocker who made it all the way to the finals of NBC’s The Voice calls herself a Janis Joplin-Melissa Etheridge-Etta James hybrid.

That's quite a statement, but the Florida native proved with her recent run on the reality hit that she's got the vocal chops to make such a bold claim.

Excerpts from Beverly's interview with TV Line this week ...

On her reaction to success on The Voice: "Where the hell did the rock and roll go? Epic moments were made: We need those again. I have no fear."

"I’m a bit of a rebel, a kid that never grew up. I feel like I’m finally, for once in my life, where I need to be, showing the right people, even if it’s not something I planned on doing: Come out here and get famous."

"I thought, “S***, I have just as much chance as anyone else.” Am I blown away that I came this far? Yeah. But I don’t want to slow the train down."

Dia Frampton made quite an impression on The Voice.

Despite appearing shy or out of her element at times, the singer lasted until the bitter end, when she came in second to Javier Colon.

In an interview with TV Line, Frampton explains her on-screen persona, sheds some light on her experience, and looks ahead to what's next:

On the blind auditions: "The blind audition was by far the scariest. I saw singers go in there before me that I knew the judges didn’t turn around for, and I’d think, 'That person was amazing! I’ve been in a hotel with her, and she’s awesome!'"

"Did Christina just want the big, big voices? I thought Blake would want all country. I had my pre-conceived thoughts, and I was having a hard time with it."

On her audition song, "Bubbly": "I wanted to pick something that kind of represented my style, but thinking back now, that was a really, really safe song for me. I didn’t want to go out there and do some weird REM thing then."

"I was so scared and I was playing it by the book."

Even though Javier Colon won The Voice Wednesday night, it still hasn’t completely sunk in yet. The 34-year-old says he's still in disbelief.

“I was 100 percent in my mind, I was ready and prepared for Carson to say, ‘The winner of The Voice is Dia Frampton," he tells Celebuzz

"I was going to be okay with that because I absolutely love Dia ... She is amazing and deserved a win as much as we all did. We all have the same dreams and are trying to succeed in a very hard business."

"But in that moment, when he announced my name, it was unexpected. I am very, very thankful to those who voted for me. It was so close."

Below are a few excerpts from Celebuzz's talk with Javier:

On Adam Levine's reaction off the air: "He was emotional about me and my situation. He genuinely wanted me to win so badly. It wasn’t that he wanted his team to beat the others, it was because he wanted me to succeed."

"To see him get emotional meant a lot to me because it reaffirmed the fact that he really cares. We’re going to be friends for a very long time."
