Meet Lindsay Joan, 22-year-old The Voice contestant that blew away Nick Jonas with an impressive rendition of Halsey’s “Nightmare.”
On Monday, March 15, the San Diego native earned a two chair turn from coaches Blake Shelton and Jonas. Following her audition, the contestant was praised by all four coaches including Shelton, Jonas, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend.
“I’m glad that you’re on The Voice, I think this is the perfect place for you,” Clarkson said. “You have such a huge pop vocal but also with a soulfulness and a sultriness. It’s really nice too, I’m an idiot I should’ve turned around. Honest to God don’t even have a reason.”
“You’re so talented, I’m an idiot and I will steal you,” Clarkson added.
“During the lower parts of the song, you felt like you were still a little unsteady and so that made me hesitant but once you were hitting those high notes, it was like woah, like amazing,” Legend shared.
“I love it when people react like this when people make it on to The Voice, cause dammit this is a big deal, this is the biggest stage in the world,” Shelton gushed. “The Super Bowl can suck it. I’ve been doing this for a long time and I instantly knew she’s a little nervous, she shook up and she’s found a spot now to dump all her nervous energy into and which is the chorus. You were able to channel it something incredible. You already have this charisma about you, you put that in with some confidence and just kind of shedding those nerves a little bit, you’re going to be unstoppable Lindsay. I really do think that.”
“Lindsay, the important thing moving forward is going to be finding that confidence in yourself and I think for your voice, there are so many things we could do with song selection and I want to get the chance to do that.”
“Your are amazing when you are hitting the high notes,” Jonas added.
“She blew me away,” Jonas added.
“This moment truly means everything,” Joan said after choosing her team.
