TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Royce Lovett, a Tallahassee native, has secured a spot on Gwen Stefani's team after a blind audition on the reality TV show "The Voice."

Lovett performed Wyclef Jean's "911" on the show's season premiere Tuesday night, Gwen Stefani turning her chair for him just 30 seconds into his performance. Unable to contain her excitement, Stephani got up and began dancing to Lovett's Reggae beat.

Just 30 seconds after, Blake Shelton also pushed his button for Lovett. In the end, Lovett went with Team Gwen.

A singer, songwriter, and rapper Lovett is a father of two and a Motown Gospel recording artist. He's performed along well-known artists like Wale, Vince Staples, George Clinton, P-Funk, and more.
