Madi competed week four of the competition on August 7th. The Judges that evening were Rick Da Woolf, partyinradio.com, Travis Blakeley, Texas Legends Senior Account Executive, and Clarke Wilcox, Music Manager. Mr. Wilcox started the judges comments on a positive note with, "I could cut hit records on that voice."
Battle of the Legends judge, Rick Da Woolf, thought Madi's performance was "Controlled, Captured & Connected." She sang, Say Something & Latch and Travis Blakeley, Texas Legends Senior Account Executive and judge said that he thought Madi has "something really special. Something that transcended this stage."

"You've got something really special. Something that transcended this stage. --The room got quite, we were all wondering, oh my god, what are we watching right now" -- "it brought me to a special moment in my life. One of the first concerts my fiance and I ever enjoyed was a Nelly Furtado concert, and she has the ability to take a song to a different level -- it seems rather innocent in its approach, but all of a sudden you find this moment where everyone just kind of shuts up and connects and listens for a minute; and you can do that with an audience and lady that is a special talent and I am excited for you. I am really excited for you."
