Lauren Diaz absolutely nailed her audition on Tuesday night’s episode of “The Voice!”
Diaz took a risk and sang “If I Ain’t Got You” by new coach Alicia Keys. It is kind of a risky move for the amateurs to pick songs made famous by the successful coaches, but Diaz completely knocked it out of the park, and Keys was the first to turn her chair around for the girl.
Miley Cyrus also decided to try for Diaz, and at the last possible moment, Blake Shelton turned around.
When Diaz finished her audition, Keys walked up onto the stage to hug her. That’s when everyone realized it was over.
“The sky is blue. The grass is green. This girl is on Alicia’s team,” Adam Levine joked.
“Lauren, I am not going to accept it. I don’t care how cute Adam’s poem is,” Shelton said. “It gets to the point where somebody is so talented, it’s just disrespectful not hit your button. Lauren, you an incredible singer, and you look like a superstar standing up there.”
With that, he turned the mic over to Keys to seal the deal.
“There’s no denying this God-given talent that you have,” Keys said. “If you decide to choose anyone else, I will say, ‘absolutely not.’ I will go kicking and screaming.”
Keys sweetened the deal by belting out a little bit of “If I Ain’t Got You” with Lauren’s name added in.
In the end, Diaz went with the obvious — Team Alicia!
“The Voice” airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
