This 'Voice' Contestant Was So Good, She Had All Four Coaches Fighting Over Her

"I thought I knew singing until you just came here and you did that."

Season 13 of The Voice started off on the right foot Monday night, with more than one four-chair turn from the coaches. First, Chris Weaver blew them away with "Try a Little Tenderness." Then, 26-year-old singer Brooke Simpson turned them competitive with her blind audition to Demi Lovato's "Stone Cold."

Blake Shelton and Miley Cyrus were the first two to push their buttons and turn their chairs around, with Jennifer Hudson and Adam Levine following soon after. Hudson was so impressed, she threw her notebook on the floor as Simpson performed.


Simpson was emotional after her performance, leading Levine to jump on stage and give her a hug. The singer said she's from a "small Native American community" in North Carolina, and shared that, while she listens to all four coaches, her biggest musical inspiration is her mother.

The coaches went on to argue their cases for why Simpson should choose to join their team. Levine called her "one in a million," while Hudson told her, "I thought I knew singing until you just came here and you did that." Cyrus even let Simpson feel how fast her heart was beating from her performance.

In the end, Simpson chose to join Team Miley, and we can't wait to see what they come up with.
