Tuesday night during Night 4 of “The Voice” Season 15, pop/soul singer Reagan Strange took on Bebe Rexha‘s “Meant to Be” and caused two coaches to turn their chairs around: Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Amazingly, at only 13 years old Reagan still possesses a powerful voice beyond her years. Even though she went into the blind audition hoping that Blake would press his button, she ended up being the latest member of Team Adam. Watch NBC’s “The Voice” blind audition video above and read the coaches’ comments below.
“Okay, I see your tears. I’m gonna have tears also if you pick him,” Adam told the teenager while trying to convince her to join his team. “I turned around first. And he’s gonna be like, ‘I just wanna wait and listen and enjoy it.’ That’s not true. There was an effortlessness to your power and your precision that was very Danielle Bradbery-esque. You can go all the way here. I believe that. I really do.”
Blake countered that he’s “been able to win” with artists of all genres, including Danielle, Chloe Kohanski, Sundance Head, Cassadee Pope and Jermaine Paul. (See “The Voice” winners list.) “He’s doing the pointy thing!” Reagan shouted after Blake started pointing at his own head. But it wasn’t enough to sway her over to his team, as she decided to join up with Adam in part because he pushed his button first.
In his “The Voice” live blog, our recapper Denton Davidson had this to say about the performance: “Tonight’s episode gets started with 13-year old Reagan Strange. The high school freshman started singing at the age of nine when she performed the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ at a Grizzlies game. She’s hoping for Blake to turn his chair for, if nothing else, to see him point at his own head. She’s singing ‘Meant to Be’ by Bebe Rexha featuring Florida Georgia Line and Adam is quickly the first to respond by hitting his buzzer. Moments later, Blake follows suit while Kelly and Jennifer remain in place. Reagan has a solid voice, but there would have to be a lot of growth for her to go far. Adam reminds Reagan that he turned around first and loves her effortless power. Blake points out that he has won with artists of all genres, but despite his best efforts Reagan chose to join Team Adam!”
