The blind auditions continued on The Voice 2018 this week, and one of the standouts was 19-year-old singer Audri Bartholomew, who performed the song "Never Enough," originally sung by Loren Allred for the movie The Greatest Showman. She captured the attention of coach Jennifer Hudson, who couldn't help but join in.


"I love this song," Hudson declared after hearing only the opening instrumentals. It took most of the performance, but Hudson finally pushed her button to turn around at the last minute. Although no other coaches turned their chairs, a number of commenters on YouTube agreed that Bartholomew deserved more.

"I want to sing that song," Hudson told her new team member, to which Bartholomew replied, "We can sing it together." Hudson didn't pass up that offer, even though she already performed a duet with contestant Kennedy Holmes last week. When it comes to singing with her favorite contestants, it's "never enough" for Hudson. Obviously, the two sounded amazing together.

Bartholomew's audition even earned praise from Loren Allred, who is a former Voice contestant herself. She tweeted her congratulations to the young singer on Monday night, writing, "I love a good full circle moment!"
