Last night’s episode of The Voice ended on high drama with the chairs refusing to turn around and singer Kathy Hinch left stranded!
So tonight’s episode picked off where last night’s left off with a bewildered Kathy learning that she had in fact turned the chairs of Joel Madden and Ricky Martin.
Her choice? Joel, because she believed he would steer her in the right musical direction.
Then The Voice offered up a surprise contestant - with 2012 runner up Darren Percival’s brother Glen taking to the stage to rock out his rendition of The Foo Fighters Times Like These.
Unfortunately he lacked the same magic that last year’s judges heard in his brother’s voice– with Delta calling his performance “fearless, but pitchy” and both Ricky and Seal questioning his song choice.
Then it was 18-year-old Melbournian Maya Weiss – who has music in her blood.
Singing Duffy’s Stepping Stone, Maya caught the ear of both Joel and Seal – with Joel trying to play to the heart saying that he is a “mumma’s boy” and loves working with female artists the best!
And it worked! With Maya choosing Joel because she believes that he wanted her more than Seal.
Next up a very brave Tim Morrison decided to take on one of the big men of rock – performing U2’s Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Heralding from a band and gigging for many years – Tim managed to turn the chairs of both Delta and Seal (at the very last minute).
He decides to go with the ‘nurturing, loving’ mentor style of Delta Goodrem.
Despite the initial reaction from the crowd and the judges to Michelle Cashman’s skin tinging performance of Wicked Games – she didn’t manage to turn any chairs, which Delta put down to not enough ‘diversity’ in her voice.
Sassy Jessica Samarges was up next with her rendition of Stacie Orrico’s Stuck – which attracted Delta, Joel and Seal.
Joel once again put on the smooth word – wooing Jessica by complimenting her looks and telling her that she “sounds hot when she sings”.
