Highland Park High School senior Claire DeJean, 18, has earned a spot as a contestant on NBC’s The Voice.
The show in its 15th season begins with blind audition episodes where judges have their backs turned as contestants sing. The judges only turn their chairs around during a performance if they want to compete to add the contestant to their team.
During Tuesday night’s blind auditions episode, DeJean got judge Blake Shelton to turn his chair around first, but chose Team Kelly after Kelly Clarkson turned around just prior to the end of the performance of “Hurt Somebody” by Noah Kahan and Julia Michaels.
“WOW. overwhelmed with love,” DeJean told her followers on Twitter, “thank u so much for your support, can’t wait to see where this journey takes me.”
The show airs Mondays and Tuesday.
