The Voice had its last round of blind auditions on Monday night (March 13) and Tennessee native, Laura Littleton, took centerstage for her chance to wow all four coaches — with a little help from Harry Styles .
Originally from Dickson, Tennessee, Littleton took a chance at a Bluegrass rendition of one of Harry Styles most popular songs “Sign Of The Times.” Her unique country twang immediately grabbed the attention of all four coaches, but sparked a major interest with returning coach, Kelly Clarkson and the shows newest member, Niall Horan, former One Direction bandmate of Harry Styles.
Determined to have Littleton join her team, Clarkson blocked tenured coach, Blake Shelton, leaving it against herself and Horan as an option for a team to choose.
“I need you to know that I love you so much that I used my only block on you,” Clarkson told Littleton.
Littleton, who revealed that music has been an outlet for her as she has battled depression throughout her life, showed her appreciation for Blake Shelton and expressed gratitude that she was able to be a part of Shelton’s last season on The Voice.
“What you created here. I am Honored that I get to be here for your step-away,” she told Shelton.
She continued to say that, “Getting to be a part of the process from the very start to the very end, right now, whether someone gets a chair turn or not, you walk away from this a better and more confident person. So I am Thankful.”
Considering the connection within her song choice, it was no surprise that Littleton ultimately decided to compete on Niall Horan’s team.
