The final audition of the night belongs to Ashley DuBose. She is a single mom from St. Paul, Minnesota and she works tirelessly as a programmer analyst. That sounds like a pretty depressing, shitty job, are you sure you're not living in Seattle, Ashley? She tears up because she is so god damn tired working full time and being a mom. In the barely relevant words of Britney Spears, "guess I can't see the harm in workin' and bein' a mama."
Ashley sings "Diamonds" by Rihanna and it is so, so good. She made the song less inane, somehow. Once she gets to the chorus, Adam, Blake and Christina push their buttons. Cee Lo follows shortly after. I just found out that Rihanna's real name is Robyn, and it just shows that all good things originate with Robyn.
Back to Ashley, though, Adam says her voice cuts through the room like a knife in a good way, and the coaches can't believe she doesn't sing for a living like all those sad sacks in Seattle. All the coaches want her, but Ashley eventually goes with Adam. I'm not sure this team will serve her best, but oh well. Also, is Adam's beard a little shorter for this audition? I forgot to look because I have better things to do with my life than try to eyeball Adam's stupid beard length.
