GREENWOOD -

After wowing the judges during the audition phase of "The Voice," a Greenwood teen made quite an impression Tuesday night.

But was it enough to get at least one of the chairs to turn around and win a spot on one of the four teams?

Before 18-year-old Macey Estes took to the stage, she talked about her days in show choir at Center Grove High School.

"We sing and dance at the same time, but I never felt like it was exactly who I was. I have this other side dying to come out of me," she said on the show.

Inside her home Tuesday night, Macey and her family and friends watched the nail-biting taped performance.

A few of the judges tickled their buzzers, but no one turned their chair.

"The first thing I told Blake when you started singing, 'She's young.' You could hear the youthful, but a lot of potential, man," said judge Adam Levine.

"There was one note I really wanted you to hit. That's the note I was really looking for," said judge Christina Aguilera.

Cee-Lo then asked Macey to show off some of her rapping skills. She obliged.

"Keep rapping. That was good. Yeah, that was hot," Cee-Lo said. "Stay confident, that's the most important thing."

Then, she got a hug from her idol, Aguilera.

"I guess I just didn't have what it takes this year. I'm grateful that Christina gave me a lot of good feedback and that she hugged me, because I love her so much," Macey said.

So does "Team Macey," who immediately took to Twitter and found folks around the nation wanting to hear more. They're promoting the hashtag "#BringMaceyBack."

"Even though no one turned around, I'm not even mad about it anymore, because it's just, like, I don't know...a really cool opportunity," Macey said.
