continues ] -Oh, they are gonna fight. -Welcome to “The Voice.” -[ Laughs ]
Thank you. -What’s your name?
-Kennedy Holmes. I’m 13 years old, and I’m
from St. Louis, Missouri. [ Cheers and applause ] -[ Laughing ] -What?! -Well, let me be
the first to thank you for coming to “The Voice,”
’cause our ratings are going to shoot through
the roof this season. -No, thank you.
-What? -Damn. -I think you’re
the best vocalist that has auditioned this year. -Thank you!
[ Cheers and applause ] -Oh, my God. -Your voice already sounds
so seasoned and accomplished and so much control,
so much range. Oh, my gosh.
-[ Laughs ] -I don’t want you to get
distracted by the fact that I’m a country artist and you’re
the greatest artist of all time. [ Laughter ] I’ve worked with people from
all kinds of different genres and done well. I want you to pick me
as your coach so you can teach me
how to sing like that. -Thank you, thank you. -She’s so young. I’m, like, crying.
It was so pretty. Just so you know, the most
beautiful parts of your voice aren’t even the biggest. The most beautiful
is those intimate ones where you let that roundness
of that falsetto, that head voice, like, set in. That’s — It’s —
Whoo! It’s so good.
-Thank you, thank you. -And you deserved
every one of these chairs turning around, girl.
You sound so beautiful. [ Cheers and applause ] -How long have you been singing? If you’re only —
Is she — -Oh, great.
-Oh, Lord. Oh. -[ Crying ] -You all right?
-She just realized that Jennifer Hudson’s
talking to her. -Yeah, Jennifer Hudson.
-Oh, wow. -Oh, okay. So, one of
my first performances, I sang “I Am Changing.”
-Oh, my God. I’ve dreamed to sing with you.
-I’m ready. -[ Laughing ]
[ Cheers and applause ] -What’d she say?
She said, “I’m ready.” [ Cheers and applause ] -Give me love. You are amazing.
-Thank you. -You are gifted.
That is a gift. -Oh, my God.
I’m so happy. ♪♪ -♪ Look at me ♪ ♪ Look at me ♪ ♪ I am changing ♪ -♪ Changing ♪

Okay. -Thank you so much. -Does that mean
you’ll come to my team? [ Laughter ] -Oh, my gosh.
I’m, like, crying. -You are so gifted. -Thank you.
-You are a star. It was an honor and a pleasure
just to sing with you. -Thank you.
Thank you so much. [ Cheers and applause ] -Kennedy!
-Adam! -I’m gonna pretend like —
-You have a chance? -No, no, no.
[ Laughter ] Very, very rarely
does someone come around that kind of reignites
our passion for what we do. And to hear you sing today
did that. I watched you address every
single person on the panel fearlessly and with
all of the heart and soul that you were
throwing out there. Just to see
that kind of confidence naturally exist in you at such
a young age, it’s unheard of. After the 15 seasons,
you really can become the absolute biggest thing
to ever come from this show. So you should be
on my team, Kennedy. [ Cheers and applause ] -Well, that was a good pitch. -I think if Adam
wanted you enough, he’d sing “I Am Changing”
with you, too. -Thank you, Kelly.
[ Laughter ] -You are a gem, and I understand
just how special and precious it is,
and if I can instill every inch of whatever I could possibly
give you, I will do that. And I will be that coach that’s
there for you, no matter what. -Thank you so much.
[ Cheers and applause ] -Okay, Kennedy, it’s time. Who do you pick as your coach? [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ -Does Adam have a chance? -I think Adam does. ♪♪ -I truly love and adore
each and every one of you. ♪♪ But… ♪♪
