CLEVELAND- Day two auditions of NBC's hit reality vocal competition have brought people from as far away as West Virginia to audition, as well as people who have tried to make it on "The Voice" four times in a row.

"I'm actually supposed to be at work right now. I actually called off. This is my fourth time auditioning… so I'm used to it," Denise Mcelroy tells Channel 3's Hilary Golston. "I just feel like eventually they are going to pick me."

Zac Doss came from West Virginia to audition, even though he's already signed a record deal, he says. "I might get a call back," Doss tells Golston. "I don't know. I'm not really worried about it."

20-year-old Maddie Miller was convinced by her friends to show up for the audition. "It's about sharing experience through your own voice, and being able to tell your own story and have people relate to it," Miller tells Golston.

Even the very young, including 17-year-old Laura Falb who came from Columbus to sing her heart out, are ready to get their big break. "I think my voice stands on its own," Falb tells Golston. "Any age everybody can have a different… like… range of voice. A 17-year-old can be with someone who's like 27."

Auditions conclude Sunday. Those who have not already registered will not be eligible at this point to audition in Cleveland, this round.
