On May 13, Team Blake Shelton‘s singer Holly Tucker belted out “A Broken Wing” by Martina McBride on The Voice 2013. Coach Blake chose the song as an affirmation for Holly, who’s had a hard time coming into her own during the competition. The songbird was advised during rehearsals to connect to her song in order to make the audience believe her, and when she hit the stage, she came alive with her powerhouse vocals and sweet falsettos.

Coach Usher told Holly that anyone who ever doubted her talent was a “fricking idiot,” while Shakira was impressed and said the Texan outdid herself. Coach Adam Levine thought that she was great and Blake said that her performance this evening was the best she’s done this far. He was pleased to see Holly’s personality coming alive and her insecurities flying out the window.
