Hanna, of Laguna Niguel, California, who has a dozen piano students, sang Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space.”
It was her father who signed her up to audition, and Hanna wore her Young Womanhood Recognition Award of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during the taped interviews at her home.
Coach Adam Levine turned his chair first during Monday’s episode and she smiled during her song, and then toward the end of the song, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton turned their chairs. Since multiple coaches turned their chairs, each coach made their case why Hanna should pick them.
“The second I turned around, you started smiling and you kind of maybe a little bit forgot about the fact that you’re still singing,” Levine said. “Then you really got it back together. By the end, I thought you were doing the best stuff you were doing the entire performance.”
Levine compared her to Danielle Bradbery, who won “The Voice” during season four with Shelton as a coach.
“You are miraculously talented. I am utterly blown away by what you do. Let’s do this,” Levine said.
Stefani pointed to her own career starting as a teenager.
“I clearly know what you want to do and I can share everything I’ve done with you,” Stefani said. “We can have so much fun together.”
Shelton said her voice was unique.
“When you started singing, it almost sounded like a lullaby, but still all this range and all this power,” Shelton said.
Then the auditions episode went to commercial and after the commercial, Hanna chose Levine to be her coach.
“For someone who is 15 years old to be that good, she’s gifted,” Levine said. “It’s time to hone her craft,”
During the blind auditions, the four coaches, which also include Alicia Keys, built their teams. Now, they move to the battle rounds, where coaches pair team members for dueling duets and pick a winner. The other singer can be stolen by another coach.
The next round is the knockout round where team members again compete against each other but this time sing different songs. From there, they go to the live shows with viewer voting and the coaches’ input.
“The Voice” airs on Monday and Tuesday evenings on NBC.
