Roderick: Is there a voice telling you that you need to audition for it, Nouela? Listen to me, that voice isn't real. You're wonderful the way you are, you don't need to audition for anything! Whatever that voice is saying is just your own insecurities, and that's really common. But we love you, and you don't have to prove your worth. Stand up and say, "The Voice, you are a worthless piece of shit and I renounce you!"
