It’s very rare when Blake Shelton, who is also known as the king of 'The Voice', gets impressed with the contestants on the singing reality show. Fans were taken by surprise when a contestant named Payge Turner walked in and crooned The Weeknd’s hit single  ‘Call Out My Name’ on the premiere episode of ‘The Voice’ season 19.

The 27-year-old contestant, who hails from Trinidad and Tobago, absolutely floored Blake as he was the first one to turn around his big red chair after pressing the buzzer within seconds of her performance. He even signaled other judges not to turn around but it was Gwen Stefani who turned around after getting equally impressed. John Legend and Kelly Clarkson did not turn their chairs at all.

Payge then had to choose between #TeamGwen and #TeamBlake. The renowned country singer even tried his best to convince the Caribbean crooner. While praising her singing skills, Blake even asked how he could apply and join Turner’s fan club. Blake was seen mesmerized throughout during Payge’s terrific performance. However, in the end, it was Stefani who got her in her team.

Apart from the singing skills of the contestants, fans will also notice a few changes in the show due to the unfortunate global pandemic. The coaches sit farther apart and host Carson Daly will also keep his distance. ‘The Voice’ Season 19 premiere episodes will be aired on NBC. Fans can also catch the singing reality show on the official website of NBC and on their official app along with the network's new streaming service Peacock.
