Will Hailey Mia, 14, be youngest ‘The Voice’ winner? Fans say she's 'born to do this’
Hailey Mia has time and again proved why she is here to win ‘The Voice’ Season 21. The 14-year-old crooner from New Jersey landed in the top 11 in the last episode and gave an enthralling performance in the latest episode with an intention to earn the coveted seat in the top 10. One contestant will be eliminated on Tuesday, November 23, no matter what team they are.
Taking to the stage during ‘Fan Week’, Hailey Mia performed Sia’s chart-topping banger ‘Elastic Heart’. However, she opted for the piano version as she slowed down the song in order to display her vocal prowess and connect to the audience. The Team Kelly member, who was the final performer of the evening, left the rest of the judges namely John Legend, Ariana Grande, and Blake Shelton in awe as they simply could not resist praising her. Kelly Clarkson too dropped a few pointers for the teen singer adding that she might win the show if she kept raising the bar.

Will 14-year-old Hailey Mia be the youngest winner?
Ahead of her performance, Kelly Clarkson shared that it was the best she has ever sounded and she could be a serious contender to win the singing reality show. “I'm so proud of you. I called this early on- I thought, she's a dark horse. She's gonna come along and she's gonna be better and better. She's gonna be the one”, said Kelly adding, “I swear to you, you can make the finale. You just keep getting better and better each week. You're so phenomenal."
Blake Shelton seemed very impressed as he told her, “You're so good at this that that was kind of hard to see you sad. We all love you so much and you did so good on that song, that it was literally so powerful that I got wrapped up in it going, 'Oh no, I don't want to see her sad!'" He added, “To have that kind of taste and charisma as a vocalist at 14 years old-even at 30, is incredible," Kelly pitched in, "You're 14, it's a godsend. I'm so blessed to have you on my team." If Hailey Mia wins the show, she will become the youngest ‘The Voice’ contestant to win. Interestingly, Hailey was just 13 when she had auditioned for the show. Previously, singer Brynn Cartelli from season 14 became ‘The Voice‘s youngest winner at just 15 years old. Carter Rubin from season 19 is the first male youngest singer to win ‘The Voice’ and the second-youngest winner overall at the age of 15.
