Jasper’s Shelbie Z. performed her rendition of Reba McEntire’s hit song “Fancy” on Monday night’s live episode of NBC’s hit show “The Voice.” Her performance drew rave reviews from the show’s coaches.

Spectacularly clad in a bright red dress and black boots, Shelbie “commanded the stage,” according to Blake Shelton, who was all smiles during her performance. Shelton selected Shelbie Z. as part of his team of singers.

Christina Aguilera, another of the show’s coaches, congratulated Shelbie Z. on her recent marriage and ended her comments by saying she did a great job on a “fitting song” and that she really brought it home.

CeeLo Green said Shelbie Z. is “consistently charismatic” in her music. He said she also did a great job and that she makes Shelton’s team strong.

Adam Levine praised Shelbie Z., saying she was “incredible” and performed flawlessly.

Shelton beamed with pride and said if he had been in a coma and woke up to her singing that he would’ve thought she was “one of the biggest stars in country music” today.

He also thank-ed her for making him look smart.
