'The Voice' Season 15 Premiere Recap: 13-Year-Old Singer Gets First Four-Chair Turn

During the episode, the show introduces its Comeback Stage digital show, in which first-time ever 5th coach Kelsea Ballerini will be coaching six contestants with the winner joining the live shows.

AceShowbiz - "The Voice" returned for season 15 on Monday, September 24. In the new season, a slew of talented and powerful vocalists from across the country performed before the coaches, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton during the Blind Auditions. Meanwhile, Carson Daly reprised his hosting duty.

The first contestant that night was Sarah Grace, a 15-year-old singer from Houston, Texas. She performed a rendition of Janis Joplin's "Ball and Chain", which wowed Kelly. Kelly, Blake and J. Hud turned to Sarah, who revealed that she has a disease where she sees colors when she sings. Sarah went to Team Kelly.

"The Voice" later introduced its Comeback Stage digital show. The show's first-time ever 5th coach Kelsea Ballerini will be coaching six contestants that don't make a team during the blind auditions with two going to America's vote. The winner will be sent to the live shows.

Next up was Tyshawn Colquitt. The 23-year-old sang "Like I Can" by Sam Smith. It was impressive enough to make J. Hud and Blake turn their chairs. Tyshawn picked Team J. Hud.

Following it up was Tyke James, a 17-year-old Hawaii native. He perfomed Ed Sheeran's "Perfect". Adam was the only coach who turned his chair, so Tyke was automatically on Team Adam.

Former child actor Ayanna Joni later took the stage to sing "Sorry Not Sorry" by Demi Lovato. However, no one turned their chairs for her. However, Kelsea picked her, making her the first contestant of Comeback Stage Digital Show.

Mercedes Ferreira-Dias returned to "The Voice" stage after competing from last season. This time, she performed "Choose to Be Mine" by Sara Bareilles. Toward the end of her performance, Blake and Kelly hit their buttons. She joined Team Blake.

Radha, a karaoke star from Jersey City, impressed the judges with a powerful rendition of "Mamma Knows Best" by Jessie J. Adam turned his chair for her, before Adam and J. Hud followed though the latter was blocked by Adam. Radha then chose to be on Team Adam.

Kameron Marlowe then flaunted his singing skills, performing "One Number Away" by Luke Combs while strumming his guitar. The rock/country singer convinced Blake and Kelly to turn his chair just 30 seconds into his performance. Kameron chose Blake.

Later, Mikele Buck performed "She Used to Be Mine" by Sara. Kelly and Blake hit their buttons when he almost finished his performance. Surprisingly, he chose to be on Team Kelly.

Sam Hastings followed it up with a performance of "Angela" by The Lumineers. However, no one turned their chairs for him. Meanwhile, Patrique Fortson sang "Get Here" by Oleta Adams. Both J. Hud and Adam wanted him, though Patrique eventually picked J. Hud over Adam.

13-year-old Kennedy Holmes blew everyone's mind with a stunning rendition of Adele's "Turning Tables". She was the first singer to get a four-chair turn. She later had an impromptu duet with J. Hud, singing the latter's song "I Am Changing" in such an emotional performance. Kennedy unsurprisingly chose Team J. Hud.
