Meghan Linsey Sings ‘Girl Crush’ in ‘The Voice’ Top 12 Round [WATCH]
Given all of the media coverage LBT's newest single has received, it would have been easy for Linsey to simply sing the song similar to the way the country quartet sings it -- but, ever the artist, she put her own spin on the tune, slowing it down just slightly and adding a blues-y note to it with her soulful voice.
“You always hope for that breakout moment. I think you just had a breakout moment," Blake Shelton, Linsey's coach -- who could be seen nodding with approval during her performance -- told her. "That was incredible."
Linsey, formerly of country duo Steel Magnolia, has been earning rave reviews from the judging panel since auditioning for The Voice. And although some viewers aren't thrilled that the show would allow someone they consider to be an established artist on the show, the singer is thankful for the opportunity.
“I’m 29, and I moved to town 11 years ago, and I’ve worked so hard and don’t believe in giving up on a dream,” Linsey says. “I’m grateful that The Voice does allow people who have had careers to come on the show like this and reintroduce themselves, giving an opportunity for a second chance."
Linsey's cover of "Girl Crush" is available for download on iTunes. Two contestants will be eliminated during Tuesday night (April 14)'s episode, which airs at 8PM ET.
