Good things come to those who wait. Proof, yet again, was paid to anyone who watched The Voice right to the end on Monday night.
The night’s final audition was Desz, a 30-year-old from Houston, Texas. Showing guts and talent, the singer absolutely nailed her cover of Toni Braxton’s “Unbreak My Heart.” It wasn’t lost on the coaches, all of whom turned.
“Let me tell you why we were so enthralled by your performance. That is not an easy song to sing,” John Legend explained to the rest of the world. “You did a lot of things that personalized the song for you.”
“The fact that you chose that song means that you just set the bar, and it’s pretty high, because you’re insane,” enthused fellow Texan Kelly Clarkson.
And which team did she pick? NBC left it on a cliffhanger.
