A four-chair turn has kicked off Season 24 of The Voice, with all four judges trying to get 21-year-old Mara Justine on their team.

Niall Horan, Gwen Stefani, John Legend and brand new coach Reba McEntire were all blown away by Mara's performance of Elton John's 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' during the season premiere episode. 

Mara had previously competed on both American Idol and America's Got Talent and is now making her debut on The Voice stage, gaining a four-chair turnaround before she even got to the first chorus.

'Someone that's willing to go into the first round with an Elton John song, and sing it like that, it takes something,' Niall commented.

Reba praised Mara's stage presence and confidence, while John played the classic 'I was the first to turn my chair' card, before jumping onstage with her for an impressive duet of 'All Of Me', leaving Mara a little starstruck.

Viewers were blown away, with one commenting 'Fire!!! 🔥This girl is the real deal!!! WOW! WINNER!!!'

And another saying that Team Legend would be starting off strong, 'That duet of All Of Me was superb! And her audition? Absolutely impressive!! This season is mad strong so far.'

We can't wait to see who she'll pick!
