"I was just so zoned out," the 17-year-old explained.

Melanie stressed that she was not ignoring the coach's comments.

"I get really blanked out easily, I'm just so weird, I'm sorry," she continued. "I respect her for anything she has to say because she's awesome. She's amazing. You know all four coaches are amazing... It's very meaningful to me to even have a critique from them."

Melanie also explained her new hair look, where one half of her hair (usually a blond shade) was blue - but just temporarily.

"[It's] just a spray," she told Laura. "It looks kind of like an airbrush thing... they kind of just spray it."
