Sharaya is fighting Stage 2 breast cancer and currently undergoing chemo, which has unfortunately been causing much damage to her vocal chords. After hearing of the doctor's orders for Sharaya to save her voice this week, Timbaland decided to step in, as Variety reports.

Being a close friend of Sharaya’s mentor, Missy Elliot, the rapper offered to perform in the group number as a surprise for for the Atlanta-based contestant. The contestants will be performing Timbaland’s smash hit “The Way I Are.”

“I’m chasing the dream and fighting for my life,” Sharaya has said. “I am a survivor and a fighter, and I will be sitting in one of those chairs until the end.”
