NBC's hit show 'The Voice' is back this week with the third blind auditions episode. Like every season, the talent on the show gets better with each passing episode. Coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Nick Jonas are vying for the right picks on their respective teams and they are leaving no stone unturned in fighting for the 'voice' they believe in.

The season has already seen the chairs turn a couple of times in the past two episodes. The recent episode is no different with four performances in and every performer guaranteed a chair turn from the coaches.

One such performer was 18-year-old Sara Collins. She sang 'Like Johnny and Jules' and immediately caught Clarkson's attention who pushed her button just a few moments into the performance. Close on Kelly's heels came a button push from Jonas. This also meant a second battle between coach Clarkson and coach Jonas into the night to get the contestants to choose them as their coach.

Both the coaches made sure to fight it out for Sara. However, it was eventually coach Clarkson's win. Clarkson was heard saying that country music needs more female representation and she was glad to have Sara on her team and is excited to coach her.

Not only the coaches but fans of the show loved Sara too. Sara is a country artist and a lot of fans were shocked that Blake didn't turn for Sara since country is his domain. 

A fan tweeted, "@blakeshelton #VoiceBlinds Why didn't you turn for Sara?" Another fan wrote, "@blakeshelton #VoiceBlinds you messed up not turning for Sara!! Hope you can steal her, she’s a finalist."

Seems like fans are in love with Sara and her rustic country voice and many have a feeling that she is definitely a finalist. Another fan tweeted, "@kellyclarkson #VoiceBlinds Sara Collins is gonna surprise ppl I can’t believe Blake an John said pitchy lol duh! You the COACHES!! They’re not supposed to be perfect!!​"

​Another user tweeted, "You will win Sara."

'The Voice' Season 18 airs every Monday and Tuesday night only on NBC. Check your local listings for more information.
