When you're 16-years-old, you're just learning how to drive or figuring out what career you're interested in. For one Lake Benton, Minnesota teenager, she did something pretty extraordinary. She just sang her heart out for one of television's biggest singing competitions.

Minnesota native Joslynn Rose took her astonishing singing talents to NBC's The Voice. On Monday night during the second week of the Battle Rounds, Joslynn Rose took the stage to compete against her fellow Team Gwen teammate Rudi.

The talented singers performed Evanescence's "My Immortal" on The Voice during the Battle Round. Anyone who's familiar with this song knows how tough it is to perform. But these ladies knocked this song out of the park!

The Voice coaches Niall Horan, Reba McEntire, and John Legend all complimented Joslynn Rose on her poise, how she controlled her voice, and her vocal tone. They all told Coach Gwen Stefani she had a difficult decision to make.

In the end, Gwen Stefani picked the singer she thought was ready the most..and that unfortunately was not Joslynn Rose.

What did the Lake Benton native have to say about her experience and Coach Gwen?

You've been such an encouragment to me. I'm just so thankful for this opportunity that I even got to be here.

This is only the beginning for Joslynn Rose! I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of this young lady in the future.

Joslynn Rose...the state of Minnesota and the Sioux Empire are proud of you!

10 Most Obscure Minnesota Towns

As you are making road-trip plans you might want to see if you can even find some of these Minnesota towns.

Minnesota is the Land Of 10,000 Lakes and 853 towns. Even if you know the state well I'll bet you haven't even heard of Minnesota's 10 smallest towns.

Inside Minnesota's Largest Candy Store

I had been to Minnesota's Largest Candy Store once before, but they did some pretty cool things since the last time I was there. They added a bunch of superheroes, Star Wars stuff, and a candy band.

According to their Facebook page, Jim's Apple Farm is actually how the now huge candy store got its start. It is located in Jordan, MN and you can't miss it. It is a huge yellow building.

Even though candy is mentioned in the name, they have a little bit of everything. They have fresh baked pies and cookies and fudge. We walked in and it smelled amazing!

They also have the largest selection of sodas! Then there is chocolate and taffy and gummies and chips and puzzles and games. So much stuff!

They even have a Zoltar machine like in the movie, Big. I had to check that out. He told me the only helping hand is at the end of my arm. Gee, thanks Zoltar.

There were even crickets and worms! Not gummy worms, but actual worms.
They also have candy from all over the world!

The store is seasonal, however. November is their last month of operation for the season.
