Reba, 68, fought back tears during blind auditions on this week’s episode of The Voice after hearing a heartfelt story from a contestant.
The Queen of Country slammed her buzzer while listening to 16-year-old William Alexander’s performance of the song Ceilings.
After he finished his audition, the Staten Island native revealed that he chose the track in honor of his grandfather who died last year.

“Singing that song, I was actually singing it for my grandfather who passed away last year.

“He always said that he believed in me and it’s just crazy being here now,” William explained, tearing up while on stage.
Reba then spoke up, asking the teen if he was really “thinking of his grandfather” during his song.
“Cause when I’m singing a song and I’m thinking about my mama my voice gets real high like that,” she joked, imitating a crying whimpering sound.
“Then I start gasping and then I can’t sing anymore. How did you do that?” she asked.

William replied, “I just pictured him hearing this and seeing me do this. It just made me feel so proud to be here.”
“Wonderful, wonderful,” Reba gushed, adding, “You’re going to have somebody with you all the time.”

The Voice’s Reba McEntire and Dan + Shay ‘ruin’ show with ‘annoying’ habit, fans claim and demand Blake Shelton returns
The country singer started to break down in tears as she confessed, “Now I’m getting choked up and I’m going to have to start talking very high.
“But I thought you did a great job. Your voice is a beautiful gift and I’d love to have you on my team,” she shared.

Reba then grabbed a tissue and wiped the tears out of her eyes.
Over the last several weeks, fans have predicted that Reba will win Season 25 of The Voice.

Ahead of the season premiere last month, NBC shared behind-the-scenes photos of The Voice coaches on Instagram.
In the collection, Reba posed with singer John Legend, 45; rapper Chance the Rapper, 30; and country singing duo Dan Smyers, 36, and Shay Mooney, 31.
The country singer seemed to be mocking her co-stars as she spoke to them on a bullhorn.

In one of the photos in the Instagram carousel, newcomers Dan & Shay smiled widely as they sat in the red chairs.
In 2023, they joined the judge’s panel for Season 25.
Although this is the first time a pair will sit on the panel, they served as Battle Advisors on Blake Shelton’s team in 2020.
In the comments section, viewers praised Reba while sharing their concerns about the first-timers.
“Not keen on this Dan and Shay situation. Why? Who are they really?” a critic trolled.

“Yes! #TeamReba all the way!” one fan cheered.
“I’m not sure about this Dan and Shay thing,” another critic added.
“Outside of Reba, the rest is kind of meh. She’s the real deal!” another fan gushed.
“Not liking the new judges sorry,” a fourth person wrote.
“Go #TeamReba! You should have broken up that row of males and put Reba in the middle! She looks outnumbered! However, she’s pretty feisty! So I’m not worried!” a commentator chimed.
The new season of The Voice began February 26 on NBC and streams on Peacock.
