Nadjah Nicole, the local R&B singer who became the first Delawarean to appear on “The Voice,” was brought back to NBC’s singing competition Tuesday after being eliminated in the previous round.

The “Live Rounds” of “The Voice” began this week, and each coach was allowed to bring back one contestant they had eliminated in previous rounds.

On Tuesday night, Nadjah’s coach Blake Shelton announced the 24-year-old from Claymont was the best pick.

Nadjah was eliminated during the “Knockout Rounds,” where singers on each team pair off in twos to compete to keep their spot. Country singer Shelton paired Nadjah with country singer Emily Ann Roberts, and decided to keep Roberts.

During Tuesday’s episode, Shelton expressed that when he was told he could bring someone back he paired Nadjah and Roberts with that in mind.

“The Voice” begins with the “Blind Auditions,” where singers perform while judges Shelton, Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani listen with their back to them.

If the judges like what they hear they turn their chair to snag the singer for their team. If more than one turns, the singer must choose which judge to be their coach. The singers then go through the “Battle Rounds” and the “Knockout Rounds” to qualify for the “Live Rounds.”

During the live portion of “The Voice” the general public vote for their favorite singers. The first eliminations based on audience votes will air Wednesday night on NBC.
