Monday night on NBC, 24-year-old Mia Boostrom sang Zayn‘s “PILLOWTALK” during the blind auditions of “The Voice” Season 14. The Boston, Massachusetts native dealt with weight problems growing up, but recently found inspiration again through music. Only one coach — Adam Levine — turned his chair around for Mia, putting her automatically on Team Adam. Can Mia make it all the way to the Season 14 live shows? Watch “The Voice” blind audition performance video above.
“You are gonna be the best one-chair turn of this season, maybe ever,” declared Adam after he realized that none of the other coaches pushed their buttons. “You know when I knew I had made the right decision? There were a couple moments. The first moment was when you went up real high and I thought, she’s got some control here, this is really good. And then when you ended, the last little line I was like, okay.”
In his recap of “The Voice,” our live-blogger John Benutty wrote, “[Mia] struggled with weight problems in her teenage years and left music due to a lack of self confidence. She sees the show as her second chance to live out her dream and regain what she lost. For her audition she took on Zayn‘s ‘Pillowtalk,’ transforming it into more of a power ballad than it is known to be. Adam was the only coach to turn for her, but that’s all she needed to advance.”
Blind auditions continue on NBC for the first six episodes of “The Voice” Season 14. What do you think of this season and new coach Kelly Clarkson so far? Be sure to sound off down in the comments section. See the full list of “The Voice” past winners.
