Hello, would you like to take a quick break from the smoldering dumpster fire that is the world we live in and just watch something kind of nice for a short slice of time? Me too. Here, then, is “The Voice” contestant Lauren Diaz performing Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You.”
It takes guts to perform in front of people, period, but Lauren takes it one step further by performing Alicia’s song IN FRONT OF Alicia. Fortunately, Lauren has the voice of an angel singing lullabies to precious little puppies, and Alicia was the very first judge to swivel around, and even sang along. Here she is the very moment she thought, “Oh, hell yes”:
Miley Cyrus and the dude who poses with Gwen Stefani also turned around and cheered Lauren on, and the audience basically went wild. All of which inspired this amazing response:
The judges got competitive and pretty creative in their attempts to woo Lauren over to their teams, but it was basically all won and done when Alicia began serenading Lauren:
It was beautiful, and Lauren’s family, including her son, basically went wild cheering for their girl. And, of course, she went with Alicia (even though she admitted her son’s favorite is Blake). TOO MUCH CUTENESS ALL AT ONCE.
