'The Voice': 15-year-old Sarah Grace's stunning performance leaves judges fighting over who will be her coach
Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, and Blake Shelton wanted Sarah Grace, 15, to choose one of them as their coach on season 15 of 'The Voice'
You may think that after 13-year-old Kennedy Holmes and DeAndre Nico's jaw-dropping performance, the judges on 'The Voice' season 15 had their hands tied when it came to picking the next possible winner. The the judges on the reality singing competition had a surprize waiting for them.
15-year-old Sarah Grace performed her rendition of Janis Joplin's 'Ball and Chain' during the blind auditions and had three of the four judges turn for her — Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, and Blake Shelton. However, the one judge who was bamboozled with her performance was Clarkson.
With Clarkson going all out to get Sarah on her team, Hudson decides to seize the opportunity too and follows up with Clarkson's comment saying, "See, here at J Hud productions, we call that sass. I felt it with my chair back, you know? Like, I was like, 'Somebody got some presence up in here.' I would call you sassy."
It didn't end there, the two judges then continued their cheeky bicker back and forth. Clarkson locks in a pretty good point as to why Sarah should pick her as her coach. "I really do want to say, I did actually win The Voice last year with a 15-year-old. I'm just saying, I can do it," she said, referring to season 14 winner Brynn Cartelli.
Sarah then reveals to the coaches she aspires to make a "blues, rock, roots album, pulling inspiration from Etta James [and] Janis Joplin," which nudges Clarkson to assure that she's a "big fan," of the teen. "I was surprised you were so little with such a big, old soul voice," she said.
Jennifer and Blake try yet again to fight their way and get Sarah onto their team. Blake even added that her voice was filled with a lot of grit and passion.
The teenager then says, "It's such a hard decision. I thought I had it figured out, and now I'm like, maybe... No, I don't think I do."
With the crowd waiting anxiously for her to reveal which judge she picks as her coach, Sarah then revealed that she picks Clarkson as her judge.
Season 15 of ‘The Voice’ airs every Monday and Tuesday at 8 pm CST.
