Reba told The Oklahoman in April that she loves working with aspiring musicians on The Voice. “They’re eager, they’re sponges, they want to learn,” she said.

On the flip side, Reba said she does not enjoy dishing out rejection to The Voice hopefuls. “The hardest part — and the one I don’t like — is when I have to sit there with my back to the talent singing, and I don’t turn around — and none of us turn around,” she said. “That hurts. They’re good. They’re great. But it’s just not what we want on our team. That’s the hard part.”
