NariYella got all four coaches to turn their chairs on Tuesday’s episode of The Voice as the Blind Auditions concluded on the NBC singing competition show.
The 20-year-old singer performed One Night Only from the Dreamgirls musical during the opening minutes of the season 23 episode and instantly intrigued the coaches.
Kelly Clarkson, 40, and Chance the Rapper, 29, turned around at almost the same time followed closely by Blake Shelton, 46, who is in his last season, and Niall Horan, 29. When she was finished, Chance asked her where she was from.
‘Hold up, let me get my life together, Chance, please,’ said NariYella, 20, from Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, when she realized that all the coaches turned around.
‘I’ve been singing since I could talk.’ NariYella said.

‘Unfortunately my wife is really into diamonds,’ Blake said.
‘You can be into both,’ Kelly said.
Niall told her that he was missing someone like her on his team.
‘Your voice is actually shocking to me how powerful you are,’ Blake said. ‘Anybody that can be that open and connected to the moment, those are the artists that make it all the way. I would be honored to have you on my last team that I am ever going to put together on The Voice.’
‘I think that I am a really good coach for you in that sense,’ Kelly said.
