During Night 3 of “The Voice” Season 13, singer Addison Agen‘s dream came true when Miley Cyrus, whom she idolizes, picked her to be on Team Miley. Agen blew away both Cyrus and Adam Levine with her powerful rendition of Ray LaMontagne‘s “Jolene,” but she ultimately chose to be on Cyrus’s team.

“I’m so happy to see you standing there,” Cyrus said after she turned her chair around. “I feel like I can really relate to you in a way that Adam can’t. I’ve been on that stage singing with a voice that felt like I’ve been through a lot. And I think sometimes people think, if you’re 16 how much could you have been through? But heartbreak is heartbreak. I feel like I relate to you because all of those little cracks in my voice, I’ve had those since I was 16 years old.”
While Blake Shelton and Jennifer Hudson were impressed with Agen’s country/folk voice, they didn’t turn their chairs around this time. Levine and Shelton entertained the audience by bickering during the deliberations process, with Shelton telling Agen that she should go with Cyrus. “They hate when I succeed,” Levine whined, to which Shelton countered, “It’s been so long though, I can’t remember what it feels like.”
Agen is 16 years old and currently resides in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Here is her official NBC bio: “Addison had never been on a plane before flying out to audition for The Voice. Raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Addison started singing when she was only four years old. When she was nine, her father bought a record store that gave Addison the opportunity to explore many different genres and musical influences. She began songwriting when she was 11, and recently, her father built a stage inside the shop so she could perform. Addison’s mother has several jobs, including being a musical therapist at nursing homes. Addison loves to help her mom by singing at the nursing homes and getting the residents excited about music.”
