At just 14 years old, Mikaela Astel delighted coaches on The Voice with her whimsical audition. The singer and guitar player earned chair-turns by John Legend and Kelly Clarkson with her performance of “Electric Love” by BØRNS. (The impressively confident audition might have inspired more turns, however, coaches are currently being more selective being that their teams are practically full following several weeks of auditions — just, for what it’s worth.)

Mikaela’s unique voice was praised by both Kelly and John, who said, “Special voices are hard to find, and I think you have one.” Kelly mirrored that sentiment when she said, “Your tone cannot be taught.” After drawing comparisons to Julia Michaels and Regina Spektor, Kelly added, “It’s so different, and I think that’s really important in this kind of competition.” Watch the audition above to understand why they were raving.
