While Jennifer Jeffries’ run on American Idol came to an end on Monday night, another aspiring singer with Mississippi ties is moving forward on The Voice.

Southern Miss alumnus and country cover veteran Karen Waldrup wowed the coaches with her rendition of “Georgia Rain” by Trisha Yearwood. The 90s bop was enough for the coaches – who gave Waldrup a standing ovation – to choose her over competitor Ducote Talmage.

Waldrup’s coaching duo of Dan + Shay were thrilled with the latest performance by the 37-year-old from Mandeville, La.

“[Karen] was just super dynamic in her performance, super precise. Karen is a superstar. She’s so good. She can sing any song we throw her way. She really wants to be a country singer through and through and she’s going to crush it on this show,” Dan said with Shay pitching in, “She has so much potential.”

Now that Waldrup has advanced past the knockout round, she will move on to the live portion of the show. The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC.
