He's also had the chance to wow Voice judge Jennifer Hudson before - he sang for her during a party for her hit musical "The Color Purple" a few years ago. Levine and Shelton promise to play nice for a time, but the claws will come out soon enough. At age seven, she started singing in church with her dad and eventually he set up a PA system in the living room where they would practice together trying to out-riff each other.

Jones now resides in Bowling Green, Kentucky with her family.

While the judges were fighting for him pick them, Dave revealed how his videos had gone viral and the judges asked him to bring Claire on stage.

"Yes, you came from the church, but God gave you that voice to sing far and beyond", the Oscar victor gushed.

Over 400,000 Rohingya have since fled an offensive by the military, which the United Nations accuses of ethnic cleansing. Indian government says it is anxious about the entry of refugees with links to Rohingya militants.

Shi'Ann Jones, a 15-year-old who sang "Drown In My Own Tears", joined Jennifer's team over Blake's team.

Esera Tuaolo, 48 of Minneapolis, sings "Rise Up" by Andra Day. Showell is slightly reminiscent of last year's victor Chris Blue. It is also worth noting that according to the show, these judges are called coaches but in reality, they are in fact judging the contestants and deciding who they want to be on their team. Rounding out her wins for the night was soul singer Lucas Holiday, who won her over with his rendition of Maxwell's "This Woman's Work". His audition was all over the place, but Hudson sees something special in him.

Twenty-six-year-old Brooke Simpson is from Hollister, North Carolina. Levine beelined to the stage for a hug. Considering that she has five #1 albums, sold more than 30 million records and has headlined five sold out world tours, it's safe to say that Cyrus knows a thing or two about music and would make a great coach to any contestant. She joined Team Miley. The Voice Season 13 blind auditions continue on Tuesday, September 26, 2017, on NBC.
