Adam Levine Calls LDS "The Voice" Contestant "the Sweetest Human Being That Has Ever Lived"

On Tuesday night, Adam Levine told LDS 15-year-old Hanna Eyre, "you are the sweetest human being that has ever lived" after her performance of "Skyscraper" by Demi Lovato.

About her growth on the show, Levine said, "Hanna has always been strong, but you see her gaining a little more control and a little more subtlety and kind of growing up a little bit as a singer, which is good timing," he said.

Levine has long been a fan of Eyre, calling her "miraculous" after her performance in the knockout rounds. "It's miraculous when a 15-year-old gets up there and does that," he said.

Despite Eyre's amazing growth on the show, her journey on The Voice ended Tuesday night when she failed to make it into the final 12, along with LDS 14-year-old Aaliyah Rose, who was cut the previous night.

When the viewer results came in and half of Levine's team had to be cut, he had the chance to save only one person, choosing Mark Isaiah to advance.

Throughout her journey on the show, Eyre says she's had many opportunities to share her faith.

For example, Eyre says she tells those who are in charge of her wardrobe her modesty standards so that they know what she will and will not wear.

"Secondly, I always wear my Young Women medallion," Eyre says. "And I have been able to talk about my beliefs to quite a few contestants who have asked why I wear the necklace all the time and what the 'castle' was. It was so easy to start talking about the temple and what we do there, what I believe, and why I wear it as a constant reminder of who I am and what I stand for."

Though she's only 15 years old, Eyre has made an impression on her fellow contestants and judges with the way she shares her standards, her talent, and her kindness.

During her blind auditions, Eyre turned three chairs, but it was her smile that stole the show that night. "Hanna, sweet Hanna, you are so cute. The second I turned around, you started smiling and you, kind of, maybe, a little bit, forgot about the fact that you're still singing," Levine noted.

"Every time you smile, the whole room lights up," Shelton remarked. "You have this smile, that, it literally, listen to people, they literally giggle when you smile. You don't have to do anything, you just have to stand there and do that and I'm buying your record."

But the person most impacted by her faith during the show was Eyre herself as she turned to her faith for peace.

"To stay calm, my dad gave me a blessing the night before [my audition], which always gives me comfort. Also, right before I took the stage, I said a prayer and that helped me so much," she said.
