Anatalia Villaranda turned all four chairs on Monday’s season 12 premiere of “The Voice.” Check out the video below!

Just 16 years old, Villaranda has already competed on “American Idol.” But while she didn’t make it far on the final season of the FOX competition, her audition on NBC’s reality show suggested she’s definitely one to watch now. The confident performer hit the stage with an enthusiastic rendition of Bruno Mars’ “Runaway Baby,” but it was actually more than a minute before any of the coaches pushed their buttons.

Alicia Keys and Blake Shelton hit simultaneously, with Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani following a few moments later. All four ended up giving the teen a standing ovation. “That is a big voice,” Keys exclaimed. But the energy of Villaranda’s family backstage couldn’t be contained, leading them to run out on stage in tears.

And the aspiring star hadn’t even picked her coach yet! Levine joked, “It’s a shame you don’t have a such a supportive family.” The clan left as quickly as they appeared, though, so everyone could get back down to “business.”

Keys praised, “This is more than just a voice. This is an artist unafraid to express yourself, and I would like you to look in your heart and see how important it is for you to be on my team.” Well, Villaranda did just that, choosing to Keys as her coach! Watch below! NOTE: The video is no longer available.
