Facing The Voice's instant elimination round, Cheesa knew she had to make an impression that lasted with coach Cee Lo Green, his fellow panelists, and America.
Her courageous performance of Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing" did just that.
It earned a standing ovation from Christina Aguilera, who's been surprisingly hard to please at times this season. "That is a beloved song," the coach said.
"Those are huge shoes to fill and you still managed to do you own thing. I loved it."
Do you agree with Christina? Cee Lo did, at least to the point where James Massone got the boot and Cheesa lived to sing another day. Will she survive tonight?
That's up to the viewers of The Voice. The top vote-getter among Cee Lo's remaining three team members will advance, with the coach picking the other semifinalist.
