Kennedy Holmes, a 13-year-old with a powerhouse of a voice, has a really good chance of being named The Voice, especially if country singer and coach Blake Shelton has anything to say about it.
Holmes blew away coaches Shelton, Adam Levine, Jennifer Hudson, and Kelly Clarkson with her rendition of Adele's "Turning Tables" and received a coveted four-chair turn. But nothing prepared them for Holmes saying she was just 13. Clarkson was so shocked she jumped up and ran away from her seat, while Shelton leaned over to Hudson and said:
I think she can win. I really do.
Levine told Holmes:
Very rarely does someone come around that reignites our passion for what we do, and to hear you sing today did that.
The clip cut away before we found out which coach Holmes chose but, after she burst into tears and sang an adorable duet with Hudson, we can all take a pretty good guess.
