Southern Miss alumnus Karen Waldrup took The Voice stage on Monday night with what may have been her most passionate performance to date on the hit NBC singing show.

Waldrup, a Mandeville, La., native vying to be in the top five, performed “Stay” by Sugarland as the remaining nine contestants were asked to pick a song dedicated to their hometown and the people who supported them.

Waldrup’s coaches, Dan + Shay, were more than impressed with the emotional performance.

“That was unbelievable. I am so proud of you. It was a scary song to sing. It was a vulnerable moment. You wore your heart on your sleeve, and I think it paid off,” Shay said with Dan adding, “That was the final piece of the puzzle to show everyone you can do everything.”

Waldrup was also teamed up with fellow contestants Tae Lewis and Josh Sanders as trios were asked to perform a song from the motion picture, IF. The three chose Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young.”

Waldrup will find out if her latest performances were good enough for fans to send her into the final five on Tuesday night when The Voice returns at 8/7c.
