Teenage Twins Blow Away ‘The Voice’ Judges With One Direction Cover

The Voice kicked off its 25th season this week, and in a new blind audition from Tuesday night’s episode (Feb. 27), a pair of 17-year-old twins get a three-chair turn.

California natives Justin and Jeremy Garcia traded verses on One Direction’s “Story of My Life,” coming together to harmonize in the chorus, which caught the attention of coaches Chance the Rapper, Reba McEntire and newcomers Dan + Shay, the show’s first-ever coaching duo.

“That was a fantastic performance,” the country group’s Shay Mooney told the teenage duo. “From the first time I heard you guys harmonizing, and I found out that it was two people, I was like, ‘We have to turn around. This is amazing.’”

Shay Smyers added with a laugh, “We’ve got just the chair for you too,” gesturing at Dan + Shay’s special conjoined spinning red chairs.

McEntire tried to sway the duo by relating to them on being part of a sibling group, referencing her family band The Singing McEntires. Mooney then interjected to note that he was also part of a band with his two sisters. “Just in case that gave Reba a leg up,” he insisted. “Don’t let her sweet talk you. I get it that she’s beautiful and she’s a legend but I just had to throw that out there.

John Legend, the only coach to not turn his chair, then decided to hilariously stir the pot, asking both Mooney and McEntire, “You all left your family groups, didn’t you?”

Ultimately, the Garcia Twins chose Dan + Shay as their coaches this season. Catch the full audition below, and watch The Voice on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
