VIDEO: Sasha Allen Turns 'Sasha Fierce' on THE VOICE
Dressed in a shimmery yellow evening gown, Sasha Allen belted out her 'Contestant's Choice' number, Aretha Franklin's "Ain't No Way" on last night's THE VOICE. Judge Adam Levine, still groaning over his decision to let the superstar go, called it her best performance "by far," while Usher called her an "incredible" vocalist.
Yet the best was yet to come when Allen took on Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats". During the number chosen by her mentor Shakira, the singer tore off her long dress to reveal a sexy black outfit with over-the-knee boots. "What guy doesn't like it when a girl rips her dress off -- especially on the stage," raved judge Blake Shelton, as Usher gushed, "I guess there's more than one Sasha Fierce! You've got an incredible voice and that was really remarkable. I didn't see it coming at all. It was out of here."
