Fire took her second chance, and with her loud voice, she delivered the heat.
Perry urged Fire to “fight for it” as she sang Adele’s “Love in the Dark” and Fire responded with a stunning belting performance.
Richie stated, “I was rooting for you so hard in that situation.” “You received a severe hit on your first attempt. You have a nice tone, but I’m not really convinced.”
Bryan stated that the uniqueness of Fire cannot be denied.
“You have returned with an entirely different frame of mind,” he added. “Are you the finest vocalist we’ve seen? Not at all, however there are certain aspects of you that I’d like to challenge you on. You still have plenty to uncover.”
Perry made a comment about Fire. “has changed. She stated, “I believe you’ve spent the most of your life in defense mode.” “The gift is the ability to once more become receptive. Take this note, and you may perhaps surprise both us and yourself.”
Fire departed with a golden ticket.
