Porter, 34, wowed coaches Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, Pharrell Williams and Adam Levine with her cover of Roy Orbison’s song “Blue Bayou.”

After revealing to Aguilera, 35, that she’s been singing since age 5, even making it onto Star Search, Porter surprised all the coaches by revealing that she starred in Curly Sue.

“I was an actress when I was very young. It’s not my passion. This is my passion,” Porter said.

“In life you take risks, walk through fear, do the unthinkable. For what is life without living. I am a singer, that’s what I am and what I have always been. I’m letting the world know, I am ready,” she wrote on Instagram.
