Country hopeful Ben Allen took the stage during Tuesday’s The Voice Knockouts to perform one of Luke Combs’ biggest hits.
After wowing with a Brooks & Dunn classic during his audition, Allen performed “She Got the Best of Me” with hopes to advance to the next round of the competition.
“Your knockout was a 10 out of 10 on the country scale,” coach Blake Shelton shared with Allen on social media following his performance.

“Ben, you’re so good and you’ve been so good every round. It’s consistently so good,” Legend complimented, while also applauding Team Blake’s Worth the Wait on their performance of Tanya Tucker’s “Delta Dawn.”
“Ben, that was my favorite of your performances,” Gwen Stefani told him. “It was like wow, he’s really, really good.”
Shelton complimented his “classic country voice” and told him, “You just knock it right out of the park every time.”
The winner, however, was Worth the Wait, but that wasn’t the end of the road for Ben Allen.
In an interesting turn of events, Stefani used her steal to bring Allen over to Team Gwen.
“I’m so excited to have country on my team,” she said. “I’m on country radio right now with Blake Shelton so this just feels right.”
