Spensha Baker Nailed Carrie Underwood’s “Smoke Break” on “The Voice”


I love “The Voice” but around this point every season, I start to get antsy and impatient as the teams narrow down to the Top 12 contestants. That being said, I sometimes find myself being (in all honesty) a little bored with the playoff rounds when the coaches aren’t hilariously battling and throwing shade at each other.

During night no. 2 of live playoff performances on “The Voice,” however, there were a few performances that had me glued to the screen, and Spensha Baker’s was one of them. She chose to sing Carrie Underwood’s “Smoke Break,” which I can safely say from my attempts at singing loudly and proudly in my car is a very hard song to nail– but she did it.

Her coach Blake Shelton had nothing but praise for her after her performance was over, and he’s said before that country music needs Spensha Baker, and I couldn’t agree more.

Tune in tonight on NBC for the third and final night of playoffs to find out if Spensha (and who else) made it to the Top 12.
