Grace Askew - Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee

Grace Askew

Grace Askew is the fourth contestant from Memphis to make it on 'The Voice'.

Askew blew away Blake Shelton, who turned his chair around within the first 15 seconds of her performance.

Shakira also turned her chair around in time to see Askew play her chrome guitar with just one hand.

"That makes total sense to me," said Shelton afterward. "I don't know that there is anything much sexier than a girl up there with a big old chrome guitar. And with cowboy boots on. It's stuff like that, you know what, I knew within the first couple lines of the song that I was completely into you."

He added, "You're a little bit country, but not all the way, there's some blues in there."

Askew responded that her style of music is called "blountry".

Shelton interrupted Shakira several times expressing his excitement about Askew's performance.

In the end...

"I'm a country girl at heart, so I'm going to have to go with Blake."

Askew joined Team Blake Shelton.
