Everyone’s favorite Tacoma star, Vicci Martinez, has been building the suspense on social media for almost a week now. The singer’s Instagram, Twitter and Facebook have been filled with hints and whispers about a big secret. On Monday the wait was finally over. Tacoma’s hometown girl will be headed back to The Voice at 8pm on Tuesday, May 5 to perform her new single “Bad News Breaker.”
The show, which has recently featured a few returns and reunions from coaches and singers alike, will feature Martinez alongside Craig Wayne Boyd, Avery Wilson and one other surprise guest on the live results show this week. The guests represent some of the early seasons of The Voice, as Martinez and Boyd are both first season veterans.

Martinez has been working hard on her music, putting out new songs, music videos, and updates about her upcoming album.

The fans aren’t the only ones excited for Martinez’s performance. On her Facebook page, Martinez stated, “I can’t find the proper words to tell you how excites I am, excited to be performing a song I am so proud of, excited to be performing a song Enter-Exit-Stay and I created ourselves, released ourselves, and completely our own. The Voice is such a huge part of my career and so many of my happy memories. I can’t wait to be back on that big, beautiful stage.”
