Malaya Watson loves being different by taking an old funk sound and adding it to new music. She chose to perform "Hard Times" by Ray Charles. Chris Daughtry thought her voice was "stupid" good. She was urged at the workshop to let her personality show in the song, but Malaya argued a bit saying, "I'm kind of weird." We don't know about weird, but she knocked it out of the park! The judges were enthralled and her fellow contestants were bopping along the whole way through.
