Both Brennley Brown and Lauren Duski blew the coaches away with their phenomenal Blind Audition performances, so making a decision between the two will not be an easy task for Blake Shelton. Let’s take a closer look at Brennley Brown and Lauren Duski on The Voice.

Brennley Brown: One of the Youngest Contestants on The Voice Season 12
At just 15 years of age, Brown is one of the youngest participants this season, and perhaps the most gifted. The adorable teen had audiences gushing over how cute she was after her extraordinary rendition of “Stupid Boy,” by Keith Urban. Barely halfway through her audition, Blake Shelton pushed the buzzer and whirled around, followed by Alicia Keys. After both the judges fought over the Apple Valley native for their team, Brown eventually went with Shelton, feeling that he was a better fit for her country style of music. There’s no doubt that Brown’s angelic voice stole the show, but her country chic white dress and brown fringe boots only added to her mass appeal.
After her performance, the visibly excited Brown gushed, “Being 14, it’s a lot of pressure. A lot of excitement and nerves were tied that day, but I grounded myself in my faith and gave it my all. It’s one of those life moments where you just have to go for it and I’m so glad I did. I told myself I’d be grateful for any chair to turn.”
Lauren Duski: The Dentist Who Dreamt of Becoming a Star
This 25-year-old singing powerhouse from Gaylord, Michigan stunned onlookers with her nightingale voice. Her unique rendition of Jewel’s “You Were Meant for Me” made three judges turn their chairs almost immediately. The daughter of dentists, Duski put off going to dental school to pursue her passion for music, and currently spends her time touring Michigan with the JR Country Band. With a voice as hauntingly beautiful as hers, there’s no doubt that Duski is favored to go far in the competition.
