On April 28, Team Blake Shelton country singer Audra McLaughlin gave a rousing performance of “You Lie” by Reba McEntire.
With the help of big-time country music producer Scott Hendricks, Blake worked with Audra to bring out the emotion needed to properly deliver the heartbreaking ballad. Blake was definitely happy with the result, as evidenced by the loud ovation he gave his gifted mentee.
Usher and Shakira both praised her for the convincing emotion in her voice, with Shak predicting it would be in the top five performances of the night. Usher also commended Audra for continuing to reset the bar for herself every week. Adam called it her best showing by far, going even further to describe it as world-class. Her proud coach says this was one of those moments that will make America sit up and pay attention to her.
