Who gave the best performances of the night? Let’s go straight into our top choices.
Team Blake’s Audra McLaughlin performs “A Broken Wing” Martina McBride
Audra is definitely one of the strongest country singers on Season 6 of The Voice. Her performance of Martina McBride’s “A Broken Wing” showcased her incredible vocal ability as she sang the song with so much passion and conviction.
Usher says, “From the moment that you introduced yourself to the world, we all recognized you have a powerful voice. Usher also commends Audra for her effortlessness.
Shakira says, “That was really beautiful. Your voice is very potent. What strikes me the most is how you were emoting. You were really giving 100 percent.”
Adam says, “I think you are spectacular. I just want to feel more of the unleashed beast inside of you.”
Blake says, “You keep getting better every time you get on stage.”
Sisaundra Lewis performs “New York State of Mind” by Billy Joel
Ok, WOW. Sisaundra is just on a whole other level compared to all the rest. She is a pro with an incredible vocal range. Her voice is so powerful, yet so controlled. She so beautifully colored the song with lovely runs and sang with so much soul.
Usher says that he loves Sisaundra’s voice and is blown away by her. He continues to say that he cannot wait to see the amazing career she should already have.
Shakira says, “Are you aware of the voice you have? You have the kind of voice that makes you go WOW. You have a certain glam to your voice. You’re elegant. I really hope you make it to the live shows.”
Adam says Sisaundra is ridiculously amazing, while Blake says he is always amazed at what Sisaundra does with every song she sings.
Ultimately, Blake decides to take Sisaundra Lewis, Audra McLaughlin and Jake Owen to live shows!!
