LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Add Gov. Pete Ricketts to the list of fans rooting for a Lincoln teacher competing on the NBC show “The Voice.”

Ricketts said Thursday that he’s been watching Hannah Huston on YouTube and is amazed by her singing range. The 24-year-old Huston (HYOO’-stuhn) is one of 11 finalists who will advance to the next round of competition on the hit show.

Huston teaches at Arnold Elementary School in Lincoln, but she’s on a leave to participate in the show. The district says a TV crew was in Lincoln in November to record her with her class.

Huston graduated from Grand Island Senior High School in 2009 and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2013.

Ricketts says Huston is doing “awesome” on the show.
