Family trio Worth The Wait returned to NBC’s The Voice stage on Tuesday (Nov. 17) for the first round of Knockouts and they brought their A-game.
Going up against fellow country artist Ben Allen, who covered a Luke Combs hit, the trio brought a refreshing sound to the Tanya Tucker classic “Delta Dawn.” Worth The Wait’s family harmonies were on full display throughout their performance and caught the attention of all of the coaches, who were up out of their seats clapping along while they sang.

“That was awesome,” Kelly Clarkson gushed following the trio’s performance.
“I think this was easily your best performance,” said John Legend, who declared, “You won this knockout in my mind.”
“Tonight it was really great,” Gwen Stefani told the mother-daughter trio.
It all came down to coach Blake Shelton who had to make the final decision and ultimately chose to send Worth the Wait to the next round.
“I think it’s time that a trio makes it to the finale in this show and I think it’s gonna be worth the wait,” Shelton proclaimed.
Ben Allen was available to steal and Gwen Stefani swooped in to recruit him for Team Blake.
The Voice returns on Monday, November 23 at 8/7c for more Knockouts.
