St. Paul native Ashley DuBose has taken a big step ahead on the NBC singing competition "The Voice."
The Pioneer Press reports DuBose took on country singer Justin Blake in a battle round by singing the Christina Aguilera-Blake Shelton hit duet "I'm Just a Fool."
Adam Levine, who coached both of the singers, gave the nod to DuBose to advance to the knockout round, saying that felt she was "prepared to deal with all the things that I know are coming."
KARE 11 has a slideshow of DuBose from Tuesday night's show.
Like Minneapolis "Voice" competitor Holly Henry, all four of the show's coaches were vying to land DuBose on their team during the blind audition rounds.
The singer opted for Levine.
Henry, who selected Shelton as her coach, will compete in the battle rounds next week.
