What Happened to Maddi Jane on ‘The Voice’?

Maddi began her blind audition by rapping and initially had the coaches a bit puzzled. Once she transitioned into her powerful singing voice, though, all of the celebrity mentors turned around. Chance the Rapper and John Legend were the first two to push their buttons, followed by Reba McEntire and Dan + Shay.

“That was so fun to listen to and then, when I turned around, so fun to actually watch you perform,” John gushed. “You’re a star.” Dan Smyers added, “You were working the stage. You were working the whole crowd. The rap stuff was super in the pocket and then you opened up your voice and the notes were perfect.”

While all the coaches gave their plea for why Maddi should pick them, she could only choose one. Her decision will be revealed during the February 27, 2024, episode.
