Pittsburgh's Chris Jamison finishes third on 'The Voice,' but what's the deal with that Craig Wayne Boyd interview?

Written by Maria Sciullo on .

Well, that was super-awkward.

It's not unusual for media types to get tangled up in the post-show interview area at big events. But when WPXI hired Los Angeles -based Stephanie Stanton to get a quote or two from Chris Jamison, a Ross man who'd just finished third on NBC's 'The Voice,' it got more than it bargained for.

In an understandably good mood, the three men settled in around Stanton for an interview. Clearly taken aback, she let them say a few words before cutting in to say, to the effect, "uh guys, we only really care about the Pittsburgh singer, and look, here's a video of him from last night."

No surprise, when the live cameras returned to the red carpet, the three men had hightailed it out of frame.

Still, it was a big night for Jamison. He sang a couple of numbers, including "Masterpiece," with Jessie J, it was revealed he'd been given a new Nissan automobile, and given the connections he's made through the show, appears to be light years ahead in his career than this time six months ago.

As coach Pharrell Williams noted on Tuesday night's show, "The Voice" is a platform to go out and "conquer the world."
