There’s another Cuoco making waves during primetime and it’s not for her acting chops, but rather her musical ability. Briana Cuoco, younger sister and personal assistant of big sister Kaley, just tried out for The Voice.
Host Carson Daly paid a visit to San Fernando Valley to chat with the Cuoco sisters and we saw some seriously adorable sibling synergy. Though as Kaley’s personal assistant Briana may spend time walking the dogs and obtaining revised scripts, her real passion is music. “My sister understands that I have aspirations, that I have things that I wanna do,” Briana said. And Kaley is effusive with support: “She’s deserved this her whole life… this is her time now.” (Kaley also admits she’s a huge fan of The Voice.)
Watch Briana singing Lady Gaga’s “You and I”:
While Kaley and the rest of the Cuoco clan were going crazy backstage, the judges waited ’til the very end to move. Christina was the first to turn her chair, followed by CeeLo. Briana chooses Christina. And supportive sis Kaley cried backstage.
More evidence of Briana’s singing aspirations….
She sang a cover of Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ on) the Dock of the Bay”:
And if she looks a tad familiar, it’s because Cuoco also appeared as Mary Bennet in the web series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (starting at 1:35), in addition to roles on The Mentalist and The Big Bang Theory.
Kaley tweeted her support earlier today:
What did you think of the performance? Did she make big sister Kaley proud?
