Jackie, a 22-year-old from California who currently resides in Boston, MA, sang "What About Us" by Pink for her Blind Audition, and both Kelly and Alicia Keys turned around for her.
After becoming a member of "Team Kelly," Jackie faced off against D.R. King in the Battle Round with a duet performance of "Sign of the Times" by Harry Styles. Adam couldn't keep his eyes off Jackie, and so once Kelly named D.R. King the winner, Adam attempted to steal her for his own team.
But Adam wasn't the only coach to press his button. Both Alicia and Blake Shelton wanted to steal Jackie as well. Although Alicia and Blake made some compelling arguments, it was clear Adam was most passionate about the artist with a wide vocal range, and so Jackie chose to become a member of "Team Adam."
On Tuesday, Jackie talked to Reality TV World about competing as a stolen artist on a brand new team. Below is what she had to say.
Reality TV World: Given the fact you were a stolen artist heading into "The Knockout Round," did you feel you were at a disadvantage at all because you needed to play catch-up with your new coach, Adam, and he was probably already invested in his original team members?
Jackie Foster: To be honest, if I'm going to be real with my emotions, once I was stolen by Adam or I chose to go with Adam, that thought of being at a disadvantage definitely ran through my mind. I just realized, "Oh my gosh, I don't know Adam."
And other contestants have been with him since the Blinds and they got the incredible experience that I got to share with Kelly, and I haven't yet shared it with Adam. I knew how much I grew with Kelly, and I was so nervous.
It really was an honest thought that went through my head. But I kind of had to take a moment like this and not overthink it, not look at the negative in a situation. It's all about looking at the positives and saying, "Adam believed in me just like Kelly believed in [Tish Haynes Keys].
They both saw something in us that was worthy of them using their Steals, and the fact they used that showed they are invested in us as much as they're invested in someone who's been with them from the Blinds.
So I think it's just about being grateful we are still here and we still have this opportunity to move forward to "The Knockout Round."
Reality TV World: When you heard Adam tell you, "You could win this whole thing" -- that you can actually win The Voice this season -- what went through your mind? I feel it could either put a lot of pressure on you or light a fire under you.
Jackie Foster: Honestly, that was one of those comments that, you just said it, it totally lights a fire underneath of you. To hear that kind of feedback, I mean, doing the The Voice isn't exactly something I planned on.

I was just about to graduate college at Berkeley and this wasn't necessarily on my radar of things to do just yet. And so when you get to the point where you're at the Battles and you have that type of feedback from Adam, I remember I was just brought to tears!
I was so overwhelmed with this feeling that these coaches -- every single one of them, I have looked up to in the music industry ever since I was a little girl -- and to have someone like Adam Levine make a comment to me, there's no words to describe it.
It's really one of those moments of, "How is this happening right now?!" And I couldn't be more grateful and it's just time to keep on pushing. If he says something like that, then I want to prove it to him soon.
That's why I'm super excited to be working with him right now, because for him to make a comment like that and for him to work with him, I really think we can make some amazing music.
Also during the Tuesday conference call with reporters, Jackie shared the secret to the success of her Battle and why she opted to go with Adam when three coaches wanted to steal her.
What do you think was the secret to the success of your Battle with D.R. King?
Jackie Foster: I think the secret to our success was how close D.R. and I are. We walked into this not considering it a competitive song, but rather a song to just make magic happen.
I think we just wanted to build each other up in the process, and honestly, we got along so well. We found it so fun to figure out what we were going to do and how we were going to make this song so epic, and I think it came off that way.
Were you confident you were going to get stolen? And why did you go with Adam as your new coach over the others?
Jackie Foster: I felt confidence with my performance. To me, I guess it didn't really matter if I got stolen or not. I was just so proud of what we put on that stage, and it really was such a special moment for the two of us.
I was just so happy with how we delivered it and it was more so I was in shock when I got the Steals from Adam, Alicia and Blake. I wasn't expecting that, and I'm just really grateful for it.
And I picked Adam because, for me, he's someone that started off as a rock musician. And even though I haven't been showcased doing rock on the show yet, he understands it with Maroon 5 and their stardom and how they really entered themselves into this music industry.
I felt like he would be such an incredible coach to really direct me and kind of bring forward my rock sound. And that's ultimately why I picked Adam, because I know he has an incredible reputation and he could work with me very, very well.
