Her audition: Juliette Ojeda, 20, Miami, Fla., performed “Hopelessly Devoted to You” by Olivia Newton John: Juliette began the song in Spanish, switched to English and back again in what turned into into a high-energy performance. It took a while, but Gwen Stefani turned, followed by Niall Horan and Reba McEntire. Gwen said she loves Juliette’s energy and spirit. Niall called the performance “crazy” in a really good way. Juliette decided to join Team Gwen.

Here’s more about Juliette.

* She’s a first generation Cuban-American studying musical theater at The Boston Conservatory.

* Of course, she’s also inspired by her parents, who fled Cuba to escape Communism, though it meant starting over once they reached the U.S.

* In comparison, ““my life has been so easy. I don’t ever want to disappoint them,” Juliette said in her Voice bio package.

* As for her blind audition, Juliette said her goal was to show the judges “I can take two completely different genres of music and make them my own.”

* Juliette’s only released music is a song called “So This is Love,” a duet with Olivia King that dropped in June.
