16-Year-Old Wins Over “The Voice” with Acoustic, Mellow “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” Performance


Lauryn Judd’s talents were so impressive during her acoustic remix of Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” Alicia Keys thought she was listening to a duet. Turns out, it was just Lauren, a 17-year-old from Utah, who is known as the singing girl” amongst her friends.


Judd’s remix of the Lauper classic remained in the same vocal register, but had a much more mellow vibe.

Keys, Gwen Stefani, and Blake Shelton turned their chairs during the blind audition on “The Voice,” prompting Blake to say, “Two fun girls just turned their chair for ya… I would love to be somebody who helps you.”

In the end, Judd went with Keys.
