Last night on The Voice, unforgettable Blind Auditions continued to have the superstar coaches reaching for the block, while an emotional duet stole the audience’s heart.
Sixteen-year-old Jael Wena – who with her family was a Voice Generations Grand Finalist – decided she was ready to go it alone. The coaches agreed, as her performance of the Whitney Houston x Clean Bandit version of How Will I know turned all four chairs, earning the teenager a spot on Team Jess.
Bedroom singer Jas Winter has never had a singing lesson in her 20 years. That didn’t stop her from enthralling the coaches and audience with her performance of Runnin’ by Naughty Boy featuring Beyoncé. With three chair turns, Guy blocked Keith mid-pitch, declaring sweet revenge for Keith’s previous block.
After securing Jas on Team Guy, he explained: “I hope you know that block was done with absolute commitment and love to you. I want to make you shine.”
Singer and songwriter Ethan Conway, 25, captivated all four coaches with Taylor Swift and Bon Iver’s Exile. With his pick of mentors, Ethan joined Team Keith, who shared: “Your falsetto is crazy good, and your low register is killer right from the first note.”
FIFO kitchen hand Jioji Nawanawa, 21, had Rita in a spin with his rapping prowess on Will Smith’s Getting Jiggy Wit It, as Rita exclaimed: “You are exactly what I’ve been waiting for.”
Ninteen-year-old traffic controller and TikTok creator, Sammy Toubia, took to The Voice stage with Alessia Cara’s Scars To Your Beautiful and earned a spot on Team Jess. Her new coach and mentor admitted: “I just love your tone. I can hear you on the radio. A little bit shaky here and there, but that’s the process, there’s always a journey.”
Nineteen-year-old Alisha George dedicated her performance of Guy Sebastian’s Standing With You to her brother Anthony, who has Down syndrome. While Alisha didn’t progress in the competition, Guy joined her on stage for an emotional duet.
