Madeline Consoer drew upon real-life emotions when performing Maddie & Tae’s chart-topping hit, “Die From A Broken Heart” during The Voice Knockouts on Monday evening (Nov. 23).

“I lived this song through and through,” she explained to her coach, Kelly Clarkson and this season’s Mega Mentor, Usher. She went on to share that she “sobbed” with her mother while listening to the song in the car following a bad breakup.

“She was that rock. That’s a really good mom if you ask me,” Consoer said.

Usher called upon Consoer to let her emotions flow.

“I need you to give me the emotion,” he told her. “I need to feel that emotion to know it’s real.”

Consoer admitted that it was difficult to think back to the breakup, becuase it was “such a low” moment in her life.

Clarkson challenged her to tear down the walls and channel the hurt that she previously felt.

Consoer faced off against fellow Team Kelly contestant Kelsie Watts.

“Why aren’t you on my team,” Shelton said to Consoer following her performance, adding that she “nailed it.”

“I loved you tonight. Your voice is so pretty,” Gwen Stefani told her. “I think you’re super talented.”

Clarkson admitted that it was a tough decision to make.

“For me, you’re the country girl that I wanna go see,” she told her, adding, “I love pop and country. This is so hard.”

Ultimately, Madeline Consoer came out on top.

“Madeline gave such an incredible performancem,” Shelton, appearing to be a bit jealous, said. “She’s a serious threat to Team Blake.”
