Bailey Rae earned herself a spot in the Top 9 on NBC’s The Voice after an intense wildcard instant save round on Tuesday’s results show.
The Oklahoma native faced off against Tanner Gomes, Worth the Wait and Payge Turner and ultimately received the most votes, securing her spot for next week’s live rounds.
“I love you Bailey. You know what is so cool about Bailey, America? She is so young yet she comes to every performance with this classic style, this classic voice, and what I love about it is it’s audacious,” coach John Legend told her, adding, “Your voice paired with these classic songs is just so right.”
Rae took the stage to perform a classic rendition of Lee Ann Womack’s “Never Again, Again.” It was quite possibly been her best vocal performance to date and definitely paid off as America voted for her to proceed to the next round.
“I don’t even know where to start, thank you for taking a chance on a small town country girl from Oklahoma,” she told Legend. “It’s been amazing to work with you and you pushed me as an artist and told me to stick to my traditional country roots which I think is so cool and I cannot thank you enough.”
Bailey Rae will return to The Voice stage next Monday, December 7.
