Malaya's reprisal of Aretha Franklin's "Ain't No Way" blew the crowd and the judges away. Keith responded to her performance first saying, "Malaya on fire!" He went on to say, "You were in such good control." Jennifer noted how Malaya was "blossoming into a star right before our eyes." Harry praised Malaya as well, but also gave her the practical advice of working on her runs to make them all in tune.
