John immediately started trying to get Grace, who grew up with both Cuban and Sicilian music influences, to join his team.

‘I think we could make some beautiful music on this show and I would love to coach you,’ John said.

Then all the other judges tried to get her to come with them.

‘I think you would fit in really, really well on Team Gwen,’ Gwen Stefani, 53, said. ‘I would love to coach you.’

‘I would be really excited to explore song choices with you,’ Camila Cabello, 25, said.

‘Your voice is magical,’ Blake Shelton, 46, said. ‘Maybe I don’t know that much pop music but it doesn’t mean that I’m not a fan. I’d just represent you as somebody who has done this now for a long time, and I can’t think of anything that would be more different and weird than if you choose me as your coach.’

Camila then tried to entice Grace by offering her one of John’s jackets that originally just said Legend on the back, but she added piece of tape with writing on it so it now read ‘Camila is a Legend.’

‘No, no, no, no,’ John said.

‘That is better because it has more words,’ Blake said.

Ultimately, Grace chose Camila.

‘Yeah baby!’ Camila said.

John ran up and grabbed his jacket back from Camila and pulled the tape off it when she tried to hand it to Grace.
