During Season 5, Deanna Johnson auditioned for The Voice in front of then-coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green.

The Georgia native sang Grace Potter & The Nocturnals' Stars during that blind audition, but she didn't manage to turn any chairs.

Tuesday night her blind audition for Season 8 turned all four coaches' chairs.

The now 18-year-old performed Kodaline's All I Want, which can be viewed below.

Johnson was blown away to see Levine, Shelton, Aguilera and Pharrell Williams all turned for her.

Levine commended Johnson on her achievement of getting himself and the others to turn around for her considering her last attempt panned out with no chairs turning.

"I am so overjoyed by the fact that somebody got turned down and came back; four chairs turned," Levine declared.

"Amazing job," he concluded.

The typical bickering amongst the coaches ensued since they all wanted her.

Aguilera asked Johnson about the critique she was given on The Voice stage last time, which resulted in Johnson revealing Aguilera told her to work on high notes.

"I really worked on building my range," Johnson divulged, which prompted Aguilera to praise her, saying, "You came out here like a rock star."

In the end, Johnson went with Levine as her coach, which seemed to have devastated Williams and Shelton more than Aguilera given their reactions.

On Twitter, Johnson said, "never give up," while sharing side-by-side photos of her Season 5 audition and her Season 8 audition.

In a video interview, which is below, Johnson revealed she was "so nervous" about auditioning for a second time, but she impressed all the coaches and really liked that Levine not only complimented her, but also said she has stuff to work on still, which is what ultimately made her decide to go with him as her coach.

Johnson believes Levine will push her during this competition.

Tune in on Mondays and Tuesdays starting at 8 p.m. ET for Season 8 of The Voice on NBC.
