Brooke Simpson turned all four chairs with her audition on “The Voice” season 13 premiere on Monday. Check out the video below!

Simpson is a 26-year-old singer from North Carolina, and actually lives in a community for fellow Native Americans. She chose Demi Lovato’s emotional song “Stone Cold” for her try-out performance. Blake Shelton was the first to push his button, and Miley Cyrus immediately followed. Shortly after, as the contestant showed off her range, Jennifer Hudson and Adam Levine made it a clean sweep. Cyrus stood while Simpson continued to belt the track, and Hudson seemed to be popping up and down. Levine got on his feet as well, and Shelton joined his fellow coaches in a standing ovation at the end.

Levine even ran on stage to hug Simpson, joking, “I’m not letting go.” Cracked Cyrus, “I was going to come in for the hug first, but felt like it was too much.” He then deadpanned, “Do you guys smell that? It smells like victory.” Added Cyrus, “You know you’re good because I’m a little speechless and that doesn’t happen.” Screamed Levine, “I’M NOT!” Simpson said she listens to all four of the superstars, but cited her mom as her biggest inspiration. That prompted the Maroon 5 frontman to amusingly shout, “I love you, mom!”

Cyrus acknowledged that Simpson’s voice is similar to Hudson’s, but stressed, “I’m a very invested coach. I’m gonna win this season and I wanna do it with you.” Levine said the contestant’s talent is “one in a million,” while Hudson said her voice is already the “trophy.” She added, “I thought I knew singing until you just came here and you did that.” Shelton further said, “Every now and then, there’s a singer that comes across this stage and just simply needs an opportunity, and I think that’s where you’re at with your talent, your artistry.” Levine then chimed in, “I actually happen to agree with him, which is extremely rare… I just know you’re the one.”

Cyrus again pleaded her case and it paid off. Simpson chose the pop star to be her coach. Watch the video below!
