The singer was doing a side-plank alongside some of her other competitors Friday, Jan. 18 and as she counted down from 19 to one with the instructor and held her position, she busted out into song.
“Killing time by working out inside the Big Brother house and keeping this voice strong 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽! Make sure to tune into Celebrity Big Brother Live Monday on CBS!” read the Instagram video’s caption of the singer exercising her body and her vocals.
Fans ate up the live crooning moment, which was captured by one of the many cameras taking in the contestants’ every move and streaming it online 24/7.
“Cmon throat and lungs!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾”
“Hahahahahhaha @tamarbraxton with the voice!!!! Love it!!”
“Yass gurl 😂😂 that fourtEEEN 🎤🎤was erraythang!!💕💕😂”
“That praise wave and that note on #1 on point 😂😂😂😂😂”
“Those vocals tho!!!!!! 😍”
All 12 celebrities were reportedly sequestered into separate hotel rooms in the days leading up to Jan. 16, according to TMZ. On that day, the stars moved into their new digs. That’s where they’ll be living for the next several weeks away from family, friends and all forms of communication.
Before moving in, Braxton dished to “Entertainment Tonight” about how she planned to take home the grand prize.
“I just know how catty things can get,” Braxton explained. “And I’m telling you, I’m just not willing to participate in the shenanigans. I’m just not. ‘Cause guess what? I have to walk away with my sanity. I don’t want to beat anybody from stealing or lying … I wanna beat you fair and square — no cheating.
“‘Are you voting me out?’ ‘Yes, love, I am. Sorry,'” she said of how upfront she’ll be with her fellow competitors. “I will feel better about that than somebody who has their hopes up … No, I’m not backdooring anybody, nor am I getting backdoored.”
