The Voice returned on Monday evening (Nov. 2) with the final round of blind auditions and there was absolutely no shortage of talent.

Mother-daughter trio Worth the Wait earned an instant four-chair turn with their cover of Linda Ronstadt’s “When Will I Be Loved.” The trio, comprised of Mia, Jaycee and Mama T, originally featured three sisters, however when one sister gave birth to a special needs child and their mother stepped in.

Worth the Wait’s performance had the coaches pulling out all the stops to convince the trio to join their team.

“I love that its mom and daughters, that’s so crazy cool,” Gwen Stefani, who was first to turn her chair, gushed.

The No Doubt singer went on to attempt to use her country cred to get the trio to join Team Gwen.

“I feel like I’m the fresh one in the country lane,” she acknowledged. “I have a lot of support from the country community.”

That’s when a video from “Gwen Stefani supporter” Trace Adkins appeared on a large screen behind her.

“I believe that every person is allotted a certain amount of good luck in his or her life,” Adkins explained. “And Blake, as evidenced by his girlfriend, has used his up completely. I’m not saying, I’m just saying.”

Blake Shelton couldn’t help but laugh. “What an idiot,” he said.

“I really enjoyed it, I loved that song, I loved the harmonies. We don’t have anyone like y’all on the show,” Clarkson shared. She also promised to push them like a “choir director.”

“I have one spot left and I’ve been sitting here waiting for whatever that’s gonna be, and it’s been worth the wait,” Shelton said, adding that he would be “proud” to be their coach.

Although John Legend admitted he isn’t a country expert, he did his best to get them to join his team.

“You all are one of our very few four chair turns in this whole season so you should be proud of yourselves and I would love to work with you,” he told them.

Ultimately, Worth the Wait decided to join Team Blake and he was ecstatic.
