Judith Hill On 'The Voice' Elimination: 'I Keep Scratching My Head' (VIDEO)

Judith Hill was shockingly eliminated from "The Voice" this week and no one was more appalled than her coach Adam Levine, who notoriously said, "I hate this country" when Judith and his other team member Sarah Simmons found themselves at the bottom.

Judith's elimination from "The Voice" was easily the most surprising departure the show has seen thus far in Season 4 since the former backup singer for Michael Jackson was an early favorite. Judith was supposed to be Jackson's duet partner for his "This Is It" tour, which he was working on until he died unexpectedly.

"It was crazy. It felt like 'The Hunger Games' up there on that thing and you just never know," Judith said on "Today" of her elimination (above).

On Monday night's performance episode of "The Voice," Judith took on Will.i.am's "#thatPOWER," featuring Justin Bieber. It was a risky move, but Judith had newfound confidence after singing "The Way You Make Me Feel" last week and getting through the emotional performance.

"You know, I don't know what happened. I keep scratching my head like, 'What could it have been?' Maybe the song was new and it wasn't familiar to people," Judith said of her choice to sing "#thatPOWER."

As for her coach Levine, whose seemingly unpatriotic comment caused uproar, Judith told E! News, "Adam was pretty bummed and very passionate about both of us and he just said, 'You know, it's a game show and you guys both deserve to be here.'"

But Judith's fans can expect to hear more from her soon. The singer told The Wall Street Journal blog Speakeasy that she's working on a record. "I have written a lot of songs and I hope to have it finished in the next couple of months," she said.

"The Voice" airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
