Locals may now vote to support former Ella Riot front woman Michelle Chamuel's bid to win "The Voice" on NBC.

Former Ann Arborite Michelle Chamuel was among the 8 singers performing on NBC's singing competition reality show "The Voice" on Monday, May 6; and with the airing of the season's first live playoffs show, viewers may now vote for Chamuel (or any other contestant) via "The Voice"'s website.

Each member of Team Usher (of which Chamuel is a part) and Team Adam (Levine) performed a song on Monday night's episode, while Blake Shelton and Shakira's teams relaxed, awaiting their turn to sing during the show's next episode, scheduled to air on Tuesday, May 7.

Before Chamuel performed the song, clips showed Usher making Chamuel rehearse her selection, Cyndi Lauper's hit "True Colors," in front of a mirror.

Here's a clip of Chamuel's performance.
