'The Voice' Season 15: 13-year-old Reagan Strange wows judges with awesome rendition of Bebe Rexha's 'Meant to Be'
The 13-year-old from Memphis had the judges fighting over her after her scintillating performance on Tuesday's blind auditions
'The Voice' season 15 seems to be featuring a lot of young talented singers in its blind audition section. Starting with 13-year-old Kennedy Holmes, who channeled her inner Adele during the premiere of the show last week, it has thrown up scintillating performances along the way, with the latest coming from 13-year-old Reagan Strange from Memphis who stood out on Tuesday's auditions.
Reagan performed her rendition of Bebe Rexha's 'Meant To Be' in front of the judges — Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson — portraying immense potential during her performance.
With such a flawless performance it wasn't surprising that Adam hit his buzzer immediately and turned his chair around for her. Following by Blake, who too turned his chair for her.
Though the middle schooler earlier revealed that she wanted to join Blake's team, the minute Adam started talking about her performance, she knew she had her work cut out as it was going to be a tough decision to choose a team.
Blake praised her for the ease with which she sang the song, following which Adam called her sound “Danielle Bradbery-esque,” referring to the country singer who won season 4 of the show.
“Okay, I see your tears. I’m gonna have tears also if you pick him,” Adam told Reagan, trying to convince her into joining his team. “I turned around first. And he’s gonna be like, ‘I just wanna wait and listen and enjoy it.’ That’s not true. There was an effortlessness to your power and your precision that was very Danielle Bradbery-esque. You can go all the way here. I believe that. I really do.”
It didn't stop there, Blake also gave a counter back saying that he has been able to win artists from all genres including Danielle.
“He’s doing the pointy thing!” Reagan screamed after Blake was seen doing the usual pointing at his own head. But sadly enough that wasn't enough for the 13-year-old to pick him. In the end, she decided to join Team Adam, not because he pushed his buzzer first, but because of the words, he told her as well.
'The Voice' returns on Monday with another round of blind auditions. Check your local listing for timing.
