The Voice's Carson Daly Reacts to Christina Grimmie's Death

Carson Daly, the host of The Voice, is opening up about the death of the show’s season six contestant Christina Grimmie.

“I think we’re all still in shock. We’re all saddened by the news of Christina, who was just an incredible talent, and incredible person,” the 42-year-old entertainer said while calling into The Today Show on Saturday morning (June 11). “It’s just so sad. So young.”

“People say the phrase a lot, ‘so-and-so was a nice person.’ Christina really was, she was special,” Carson added. “She would walk in a room and have an infectious laugh. She was determined; she was confident. But she was so incredibly sweet.”

“You would never forget meeting her. I’m shocked she didn’t actually win season six. Her star was shining so bright, which certainly makes this tragedy that much harder this morning,” Carson continued.
