    Audra McLaughlin (US Voice contestant)

    I don't watch the show, but I'd be grateful to know what fans think of this young lady.

    She has performed the John Prine song "Angel From Montgomery" - which uses a slang term for a prison pardon as an allegory for an aging person's escape from a life that has become a tedious routine. I think the choice of such a classic Roots song for a national talent contest shows a great deal of courage and confidence.

    Clips from the actual show are blocked overseas - but this is a studio version she recorded for promotion:



    She leaves out this verse, by the way (which is actually rather crucial to the meaning of the song),

    "There's flies in the kitchen I can hear 'em there buzzing
    And I ain't done nothing since I woke up today.
    How the hell can a person go to work in the morning
    And come home in the evening and have nothing to say."


    But, still - full marks for the choice.

    It appears that Audra is an anti-bullying advocate, who works for charity. I hope she does well.

    Really excited about Audra! She covered Martina's "Broken Wing" a couple of weeks ago and was magnificent! She is without a doubt the country favorite on the show this season. Can't wait for live shows on Monday!

    She's good but Blake didn't do right by her with song selection.

    Audra was eliminated from the talent show - but she seems very resilient, saying it will just take longer. She's already writing new songs. She has a strong Twitter presence and shows a lot of interest in building and maintaining contact with her fan base.

    I think Audra has an amazing voice, but she needs to learn to enunciate. It drove me crazy. I couldn't understand half of what she said. I think she also had trouble connecting to the audience. As good as she sang, I never felt really connected to her.
