And her moment finally happened Monday evening, when she stood in front of Kelly, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Alicia Keys, and belted out the lyrics to Kelly's song, which is about how her dad abandoned her at a young age.

Get ready for the battles, people, because the teams are now full!

The country coach swooped Dallas up on March 13 after she sang "Always On My Mind" - a much recorded song popularized by Elvis Presley in 1972, and by Willie Nelson's Grammy-winning version a decade later. She enthralled the audience with her rendition of Ed Sheeran's Make It Rain.

Her voice is admirable as well. After Amber's performance of Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You", Kelly said, "I am so happy that no one could turn their chair".

It sounds a lot like what you might imagine someone like Mandy Moore or Michelle Branch might do with it, which means, yes, there's something interesting happening. Calister was a Keys fan, so it was an easy choice: She joined Team Alicia. Even though Blake was last to hit his red button, he made sure to point out just how much he wanted Dallas on his team. The vocalists compete for one last chance to be selected by one of the coaches and fight for a chance to win the title of being named "The Voice". Adam thinks he's great, but just not what he's waiting for, while Kelly needed to hear more variety to be convinced.

Rajya Sabha adjourned till 2 pm
The Lok Sabha was scheduled to take up the Finance Bill 2018-19 and Appropriation bills for FY 2017-18 and 2018-19. When the House reassembled at noon, the protests continued and no legislative business could be carried out.

The very first contestant Tuesday night promised to be the latter.

Kelly recalled being invited to Gwen's house for the first time with her husband Brandon Blackstock, who's also Blake's manager.

Singing "Peter Pan" by Kelsea Ballerini, Jackie Verna was up next. "It took me forever just because I am tired from getting, just, not picked when this girl turns her chair", Kelly said pointing to Alicia.

But Stephanie could only choose between Blake and Adam, who turned their chairs around for her. Adam said she brought his attention to the song, where it belonged.

With her final lines, Amber really hammers into the ground and sky and basically bullies Kelly into pressing her button by never finishing the note until she does so. He offers her the last spot on his team, and we'll have to wait 'til the battle rounds to see/hear if he can help her stitch together what works about her showcase and the leave those nerves behind.
