After 15 seasons of The Voice, there are times when we think we’ve seen it all. But on Tuesday night’s episode of Blind Auditions, coaches Jennifer Hudson, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine witnessed the impossible along with the rest of us. Kelly Clarkson was left speechless by an audition.

Tuesday night’s episode featured a mix of professional singers and amateurs, with some contestants already making a living at the mic while others continue to dream of superstardom. Here’s how they stacked up against one another.

CHRIS KROEZ – PRO

We were tired just hearing about professional musician Chris Kroeze’s non-stop schedule. The country and rock singer performs 230 shows a year, including traveling to the Middle East to play for the troops. Adam thought he sounded like a “gruff, rough ass female,” Jennifer almost threw a shoe at him, Blake thinks he can make it to the finale, and Kelly says she would listen to him while having a glass of wine after her kids go to bed. Four very different but equally genuine compliments. We were so excited to see J Hud turn for Chris and would have loved to hear them team up, but as we’ve learned after 15 seasons, Blake Shelton is country god.

REAGAN STRANGE – AMATEUR

At only 13-years-old, there isn’t much that Reagan Strange could list under ‘professions.’ The tiny teen managed to get a chair turn from Blake and Adam with her Bebe Rexha cover, choosing Adam in the end. Although Reagan’s musical picks are more in line with Adam, no one has a better track record of working with teen singers than Blake. But her dad told her to pick Adam. Ugh, parents, amirite?

FOUSHEE – PRO

Professional singer Foushee has made a career playing gigs around New York city, including some of the same clubs frequented by Jimi Hendrix. So, she’s legit. Her cover of Childish Gambino’s “Redbone” took some fun liberties with the song, but it’s not the strongest remix we’ve heard on the show. Still, we’re excited to hear the singer put her own spin on her next performance.

MAKENZIE THOMAS – AMATEUR

We recognized MaKenzie Thomas right away on Tuesday night, labelling her ‘the girl who should have made it last season.’ MaKenzie was thiiiiiis close to getting a chair turn in Season 14 and thankfully she came back sounding even better than before. What was most surprising about her audition was that Jennifer was the only coach to turn around. Really? Really? Really! It’s interesting to note that Jennifer is also the only coach who wasn’t around for Season 14 for MaKenzie’s initial audition. J Hud Productions saves the day.

SANDYREDD – PRO AND MUST-SEE PERFORMANCE OF THE NIGHT

Kelly Clarkson had no words for SandyRedd’s performance. Frankly, we were a little dumbfounded too. It was like Janis Joplin meets Beyoncé, with SandyRedd giving the best vocal and physical performance of the season so far. All four coaches turned for the professional singer and single mom, throwing shoes, jackets, and a thermos at the stage. We thought we couldn’t be more surprised by SandyRedd’s powerhouse performance, but then she picked Kelly over Adam and Jennifer, who were ready to draw blood for SandyRedd. Sometimes silence is golden.
