On February 25, 16-year-old singer Deja Hall took The Voice stage to belt out “True Colors” by Cyndi Lauper. The tenacious athlete took her aggressive attitude to the stage with the ‘80s cult classic tune. Midway into her performance, Deja received a two-char turn from coaches Shakira and Blake Shelton. Nearing the end of the her set, coach Usher came in and moments later, all three judges were vying for the singer.
Shakira complimented the singer on her “beautiful and angelic” voice, while Blake made his bid to be Deja’s coach by reminding her that he won The Voice in Season 4 with (at-the-time) 16-year-old Danielle Bradbery. While Adam noted that his only reluctance to push his button for Deja was her omission of one major note in the song, Usher asserted that he could help Deja hit those notes with no problem, if he were her coach.
Shakira continued to tell Deja she was quite certain she would be the better coach for her, while Blake opted to adopt her into his family. When it was time to make a choice, Deja chose to join Team Shakira.
