It was a low-key night on "The Voice" Monday (Oct. 5), with several artists being sent home without a chair-turn. Until.
Shelby Brown, 16, from tiny Elbert, Ala. took the stage and put a country twist on Grace Potter and Nocturnals' "Stars" that was goosebump-inducing. She sounded great on the first verse, with a very Carrie Underwood-like quality to her voice, but when she got to the soaring chorus, the four judges hit their buttons nearly simultaneously. After her song, she got a standing ovation from them.
Out of the four judges, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton were clearly the big contenders for her coach.
"The brilliant moments were so brilliant that I have to be part of it," says Levine. "I have one spot left on my team. One spot. And I couldn't be more sure this spot on my team was made for you, Shelby."
"You are made for me, we're perfect together. Oh my god, I love that," gushes Shelton.
In a bit of a surprise, Brown goes with Levine. "I did not see that one coming," says Shelton. "I totally did not see that coming. I think I'm literally numb from the shock."
"I am blown away," says Levine after she makes her choice. "I think that girl is only at the very beginning of what she is capable of."
Remember how Underwood's big breakout moment on "Idol" was singing Heart's "Alone"? Shelby needs to take on Ann Wilson at some point, she would absolutely kill it.
