Rachel Mac put her own twist on Kacey Musgraves’ tender song, “Rainbow,” during The Voice‘s Top 17 live rounds on Monday evening (May 10). 

The Team Nick (Jonas) member made the song her own and showcased her soaring vocals throughout the performance. 

Jonas applauded the 16-year-old’s stage presence, telling her she was born to be on stage. 

Shelton even complimented her and told Jonas that his team was really stepping up this season.

Rachel Mac originally auditioned with a cover of Patty Griffin’s “Let Him Fly.” She earned a chair turn from Jonas and was noticeably a bit disappointed that Shelton didn’t turn his chair for her. She went on to reveal that she is actually a Blake Shelton super fan and once based a school project around the country superstar. 

“Rachel, you have literally made my week, thank you so much,” Shelton told her at the time. “And I’m going to be keeping my eye on you, cause I know Nick is going to screw up here and I’m gonna get a chance to get you on the team that you belong on.”

The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.
