In one of the first Team Blake knockout rounds on The Voice Monday night (April 10), Blake Shelton pitted Andrea Thomas against Lauren Duski for the elimination showdown.
Andrea, who is a former backup singer for Carrie Underwood, chose Faith Hill’s “Cry” for her song.
“If you sing backup for Carrie, you sing perfectly. Maybe it’s time to dirty it up,” Blake said to Andrea before her performance.
Blake pitted Andrea against Lauren Duski, who chose Alison Krauss’ “When You Say Nothing At All” (originally sung by Keith Whitley).
“I paired Andrea and Lauren because they’re my pop-leaning country artists,” Blake explained. “Selfishly, I don’t want to do it, but I think it’s the best thing for my team.”

Blake had to make the hard decision all by himself. “This is the one I’ve been dreading,” he said. In the end, Blake chose Lauren over Andrea to continue on the show.
