John Legend may be the new guy on the block on the set of Season 16 of The Voice, but make no mistake – this guy knows what he likes.
On Tuesday (Feb. 26,) it was quite evident that he likes the voice of 17-year-old Savannah Brister. Shortly after she began singing the Stevie Wonder hit “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing” in The Voice Blind Auditions, Legend spun around his chair. Soon after, fellow coach Kelly Clarkson did the same.

“I loved your performance,” Legend said after the performance. “You know I turned around very quickly, I felt the energy. I felt that I would be in love with the entire performance and you did not let me down.”
“Your runs were incredible,” Clarkson added. “I just had to turn around because I think you are that talented. I have to tell you I’m so excited you are on the show.”
In the end, Brister decided to join Legend’s team.

Tuesday’s show also included a noteworthy performance from the first trio to ever audition for the singing competition show. Both Clarkson and fellow coach Blake Shelton turned for the trio of siblings known as The Bundys, and they ended up going with Clarkson.
The Blind Auditions continue next week on Monday and Tuesday night on NBC.
