As “The Voice” kicked off season 16 on Monday night, Maelyn Jarmon got all four coaches, Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton and John Legend, to turn their chairs for her stunning performance.
Maelyn hit the stage to perform Sting’s “Fields of Gold” and she knocked it out of the park. So much so that Adam and Blake immediately hit their buttons simultaneously. They were quickly followed by Kelly, who turned for the Texas native. John waited a little longer to hit his button, as he listened to the clarity in her voice. He then turned his chair, giving Maelyn four chairs turned in her favor.
