On this season of The Voice, we’ve had some pretty incredible performances so far, and even a surprise audition! Alisan Porter, known as the child actress from the 1991 film Curly Sue, blew the four judges away with her incredible talent. And then all the judges wanted a singer named Jennie on their team after hearing her amazing voice! Well now, another singer is making waves on the internet not just because she can carry a serious tune, but because of how she cozied up to the judges after her blind audition.

Kata Hay auditioned by singing a version of Gretchen Wilson’s “Redneck Woman,” which totally blew us, and the crowd, away! Kata hits every note perfectly, and the country song was a great choice for her. At first, it seems like the judges are too shocked to process just how good she is — they even argue about who should hit the “I want you” button!

It’s only on the very final note that three out of the four judges reveal they want Kata. And when she sees their faces, her reaction is absolutely priceless: she unabashedly runs up to each of them and hugs them, even adding a kiss on the cheek!

Watch the clip to see the entire audition, and the hilarity that happens after it.
