Blind Audition

During her first visit to the Voice stage, Karen Waldrup instantly caught the coaches’ attention with her high-energy cover of Jo Dee Messina’s “Bye Bye.” Dan+ Shay were the first to turn their chairs for Karen. Reba followed suit only to discover that she had been blocked by Dan + Shay! They adlibbed a playful take on the song, singing, “Bye bye, bye bye my Reba bye, bye.

Watch how it unfolded below! 


During the next stage of the competition, Karen Waldrup shared the stage with talented singer Ryan Argast for the battle round. The pair sang “Save Me The Trouble,” originally written and recorded by their coaches, Dan + Shay. The performance was so impressive that it made John Legend “mad” that he did not turn around for Karen during the blind auditions.

In the end, Dan + Shay chose Karen as the winner of the battle! Watch the face-off below. 


During the knockout round of competition, contestants are once again paired up against a fellow teammate. This time, they each have a chance to impress the coaches with a solo performance. Karen Waldrup went head-to-head with Ducote Talmage who performed “She Got The Best Of Me” by Luke Combs.

Karen’s performance of Trisha Yearwood’s 2005 hit “Georgia Rain” earned her a standing ovation from all five coaches as well a ticket to the next round of competition! Watch it below.

As the stakes of the completion got higher, Karen Waldrup continued to show her star power as she gave it her all on stage. From the playoff round, the coaches could only select three members of their team to move on to the Top 12, where their performances will be broadcast live.

Karen took the stage and performed a powerful rendition of Lainey Wilson’s “Heart Like A Truck” which coach Dan Smyers called his favorite performance of hers so far. Ultimately, the performance led coaches Dan + Shay to select her as one of the talented contestants moving on to the Top 12! See Karen’s rendition of “Heart Like A Truck” below! 

Congratulations Karen, we are rooting for you!
