On Monday, September 26th, NBC’s The Voice returned for another fantastic episode. Coaches Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, John Legend, and Camila Cabello sat back down to compete for the greatest vocalists on their respective teams. Since The Voice Season 22 debuted, fans have seen a host of brilliant applicants apply for a seat in the popular reality singing competition. Madison Hughes was one of the contestants that walked the stage and auditioned this week.
The 25-year-old Florida native sang her own version of Bob Dylan’s Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door, adding a distinctive touch to her performance. Despite the fact that it took some time for the coaches to click their buttons, Hughes was able to convince three coaches to turn their seats for her.
Coach Gwen Stefani was the first to hit the button for Madison Hughes, followed by her husband, Blake Shelton. Coach Camila Cabello also hit her button for Madison at the conclusion of Hughes’ performance. Stefani and Cabello both said that they wanted to collaborate with the candidate because she was a “melting pot” who was open to all genres. Hughes ultimately chose Shelton as her coach for the remainder of season 22. Despite the fact that she was not a normal country singer, the artist said that he would be able to assist her as a coach.
