After a standing ovation from the judges they laid nothing but praise on her.
“Layla! What are you doing,” Lionel Richie asks. “It’s one thing to take our advice, listen to our advice, it’s another thing to do it. You actually did it. You killed it. You killed it, my dear.”
Katy Perry agreed. “You really dug in in a couple of those notes” she said. “You made us feel them in our gut. And Im so impressed at the way you’ve applied yourself… the way you’ve listened.”
Luke Bryan added: “A big reason why you’re here is you’re infectious. Now you’re taking the infectious thing and taking some stuff we’ve told you … and it’s fun watching you put it all together.”
