Bailey Rae’s The Voice journey came to an end on Tuesday evening.

The Oklahoma native performed the classic Hank Williams’ song “Your Cheatin’ Heart” for a chance to secure an instant save to advance to next week’s finale.

“Your Cheatin’ Heart” was written and released by Country Music Hall of Fame member Hank Williams. Artists such as Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline and LeAnn Rimes.

Coach John Legend called her performance “fantastic” and went on to reflect on working with her this season.

“I just loved how charming you were throughout the performance. Your voice was just splendid,” he said. “Bailey Rae, I’ve had so much fun working with you and I hope America gives us another week to work together.”

Rae previously performed songs by Ray Charles, Lee Ann Womack, Kenny Rogers, Billy Currington and Chris Stapleton.

Upon being eliminated, Rae thanked her coach for taking a chance on her.

“John, being able to work with you has been incredible and it’s been an experience I’ll always remember. You taught me to know who I am and to stay true to yourself and I’m so grateful you took a chance on a country girl from Oklahoma.”
