‘The Voice’ Teenager Wins Spot on Team Miley With Powerful Kelly Clarkson Cover [Watch]
The Voice Season 13 Blind Auditions night four aired Tuesday night (Oct. 3) with coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Miley Cyrus and new girl on the block Jennifer Hudson — and there were two undeniably country performances up for scrutiny.
One standout of the evening was 18-year-old Sophia Bollman, a recent high school graduate who claimed a penchant for rock music, but chose to exercise her purest pop chops on Kelly Clarkson’s “Invincible.”
It took a few minutes for anyone to turn their chairs, but finally Shelton and Cyrus made the move.
“You have an incredible pop, soulful voice,” raved Shelton. “I was sitting here going, man, I know this isn’t my lane, but I have worked with artists like you before and I have had a lot of success with them.”
“I do think you have an amazing voice,” countered Cyrus. “You definitely had some moments that weren’t as strong, but I know that you have a huge range.”
“I’m curious to know who are some of your favorite artists?” Hudson asked, to which Bollman replied, “Well, Kelly Clarkson. Pink…Miley!”
When asked by Levine if she admired Shelton, Bollman noted, “Blake would be a cool dad.”
Perhaps not too surprisingly, she decided to land on Cyrus’s team.
Season 13 of The Voice will air on Monday and Tuesday nights at 8PM ET on NBC.
