Well, that’s one way to knock out the competition.

Delivering on the promise of The Voice’s upcoming knockout round, standout contestant Sasha Allen delivers a rousing rendition of late and legendary singer Etta James’s classic “At Last” in a sneak peek (below) at this week’s challenge, airing this week (Monday and Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET) on NBC.

The 30-year-old’s performance was so good, it even knocked her coach, Shakira, right out of her chair and into a standing ovation.

Allen, who has sung back-up for John Legend and Alicia Keys, was quickly stolen by Shakira during this season’s battle rounds when she was dropped from Adam Levine’s team. Can’t wait to hear the Maroon 5 frontman’s (most likely) regretful reaction to Allen’s performance.
