Made Them Look! This Trio Gets Every Coach to Turn With Meghan Trainor Cover in ‘The Voice’ Sneak Peek

It looks like the third voice is the charm! On Monday’s (Feb. 26) season 25 premiere of The Voice, Oklahoma vocal trio OK3 got all five (yes, five) coaches to turn their chairs with a sassy cover of Meghan Trainor‘s “Made You Look” — and Billboard has an exclusive sneak peek.

OK3 is made up of Kenna, 22, Sierra, 24, and Courtney, 26, three aspiring singers who live in Oklahoma City and met through their vocal coach. The trio brought their crisp three-part harmonies to Trainor’s 2023 No. 11 Billboard Hot 100 hit and made an instant impact with the coaches, getting veteran coach John Legend (in his ninth season on the singing competition), Reba McEntire (in her second season) and brand-new coaching duo Dan + Shay (in a special dual chair) to turn around within their first few notes.

Chance the Rapper — returning for his second season as a Voice coach — was a little bit harder of a nut to crack, waiting until the end of “Made You Look” to make his move.

“I grew up arranging songs for groups,” Legend said to woo the trio after they wrapped their performance, noting that he won awards for his a cappella arrangements in college. “If there’s nothing else that I do, I do this. I feel like there’s a lot of space for a big pop girl group right now, and I would love to be your coach.”

Dan + Shay didn’t let the veteran coach intimidate them, with Dan Smyers shooting back: “He’s saying he’s an award-winning arranger for groups. We’re an award-winning group!” His bandmate Shay Mooney, meanwhile, didn’t play it cool, telling the women: “My heart is racing right now, because I want you guys [on our team] so bad. That was my favorite performance so far.”

The coaches weren’t above deploying some gimmicks to get OK3’s attention either. Legend pressed a button and inflated a car-dealership windsock man behind his chair that read “Pick Team Legend.” “John doing that inflatable tube man thing has taken all my spirit away,” Chance laughed. “It was so loud and distracting.” McEntire called the girls her “fellow Okies” and pulled out a Grammy that just happened to be behind her back (one of the three she’s won out of 17 nominations over the years). Chance pointed out that his signature “3” hat is a perfect fit for the group’s moniker, while Dan + Shay got the crowd to hold up alternating “Dan” and “Shay” signs from their seats.

McEntire also pulled out a scepter to announce: “I am the Queen of Country Music. I would love to have you in my kingdom.”

So who do OK3 choose as their coach (or coaches) in the end? We’ll have to wait until The Voice returns for season 25 on Monday night at 8 p.m. ET on NBC or streaming on Peacock to find out. But for now, you watch our exclusive preview clip below.
