Reviews Voice Australia Season 9 Blind Auditions

Preview Reviews Voice Australia Season 9 Blind Auditions 2020

Locked and loaded for another season of the best singers in Australia…Preview Reviews Voice Australia Season 9 Blind Auditions 2020.

This post has been edited with two concise videos showcasing many acts in their blind auditions.


Sunday 7:00 pm: The Battles 1
The Battles begin. The top 48 pair off to fight for a place in the showdowns.

Monday 7:30 pm: The Battles 2

“The Blinds and the Battles were filmed pre-COVID, the series producers have planned…followed by a new section called the ‘Playoffs’ and the ‘Showdowns’.

Due to the COVID, 19 pandemic George and Kelly will be mentoring and watching performances from studios in London and LA, Guest mentor/coaches The Veronicas for George’s team, and Marcia Hines for Kelly’s team.

Kelly and George will be contributing to mentoring sessions via Facetime, and then sitting on their red chairs via satellite for the shows.

The Veronicas and Marcia Hines are guest mentors for The Playoffs, and they will be bringing out more ‘big names in Australian music’ to help the overseas coaches for the finals.

Not sure about the last claim…maybe the finale.

The Veronicas (who are guest mentors for Boy George’s team) are performing in The Playoffs as there were some dancers at The Voice studios doing a ‘guest performance’ today.

An interesting claim about the guest mentors. We will have to wait and see what transpires over the remaining part of the season.

The last All-Star with long wavy hair is Kat Jade, she follows a couple of contestants and every coach except Guy.

Penelope Pettigrew auditioned with Alive. No Turns. Come back next season!

Lucy Griffiths 16 Years Old, failed to turn a chair on The Voice Australia but, the Gold Coast singer Lucy Griffiths says she left with an even bigger prize Lucy Griffiths – Do You Really Want To Hurt Me – The Voice Australia 2020

Kat Jade returns at 30 years young…Top 8 All-Star from season 3… sang “If I Were A Boy” –

Steve Clisby a 74–year–old was on Season 2 and advanced to the Top 8. He believes his life experience will be an advantage this season. He has written and toured during the past seven years two albums and is looking forward to engaging the younger Voice audience by singing current songs. Delta and Kelly turned, and he chose to reunite with Delta again. Guy’s and George’s teams were full.

Sapphire Tamalemai 16 years old finally closed Kelly Rowland’s team auditioning with ‘Runnin’ (Lose it All) – Team Kelly

Wolf Winters 31-year-old has a deep resonating voice that is hard to forget. His rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘The Sound Of Silence’ that compelled Guy Sebastian to turn his chair, despite already having a full team, thus breaking the rules. However, for Guy, it was worth the arguments.

Episode 9 Sunday 14 June 2020… standby

Episode 9

Elyse Sene-Lefao – didn’t turn a chair last year, but had the Coaches fighting hard this time. Guy turned first then George, however, Kelly blocked George! Watch! Then Guy balls up and blocks Kelly towards the end of the audition. The block is fun but it denies the contestant the opportunity of choice…so who wins? Three chairs one choice. Team Guy! Well done Elyse!

Graeme Isaako – He knew what he wanted at 12 years of age and went for it. Living his dream, the father of two has travelled the world as a musical theatre pro, playing some of the most well–known and much–loved characters. A lot of energy in this audition…he turned Delta and George. He chose Delta!

Nathan Isaac – 23 years old from Sydney…He brought some serious moves to the Voice Stage with a sensational performance of You Spin Me Around. George turned early…then Delta left her button push to the last few notes…classic move. He chose George for a reason. Watch.

Clarissa SpataShe is 38 from Sydney, presented a ‘flawless’ performance of Nessum Dorma. George blocked Delta for choice. Team George!

The panel remains unchanged this season, features Boy George, Delta Goodrem, Kelly Rowland, and Guy Sebastian.

Matt Evans sang Need You Tonight by INXS and performed like a lead band singer…he chose Delta as his coach.

Masha Mnjoyan performing All by Myself – she is from Armenia. At the age of 18, she won The Voice Armenia in 2013. She hasn’t just manifested or imagined it, she has actually done it. What a vocal! A definite one to watch…

Matt Gresham sang Bruises for his audition…three coaches turned, Kelly, Guy, and Delta (she blocked Guy) and he looked genuinely upset. In the end, he chose Delta. Back where he belongs back on stage. The behind the scene content is the best!

Siala Robson “Other Than You” Auditioned an original delivered a well-earned four-chair turn. She is 18 years of age from the Gold Coast Queensland…she ended up choosing George as her coach much to the dismay of the other three.

Format Changes

There will be two new rounds called The Showdown and The Playoffs. The Block will also be introduced this season, with coaches getting two blocks instead of one.

However, according to NW magazine, Kelly Rowland and Boy George’s roles will be downscaled to make way for local talent to step in. Read on.

COVID 19 Changes in Production

George and Kelly are temporarily replaced by Jessica Mauboy and Conrad Sewell. While George and Rowland will check in from their overseas locations from time to time.

A Channel Nine spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia: ‘We can confirm we remain committed to our four superstar Coaches – Delta Goodrem, Boy George, Kelly Rowland and Guy Sebastian – and have no plans to replace them with any other artists.’

Before adding: ‘We have filmed the Blind Auditions and Battles thus far, and will have more to share on the later rounds of The Voice closer to those dates.’

Two new hosts, Darren McMullen and Renee Bargh.

Filming of season nine was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, in which time coaches Guy Sebastian and Kelly Rowland, and new host Renee Bargh, were still overseas.

‘Filming of The Voice has been temporarily postponed in the wake of the coronavirus and new Government protocols,’ they said.

Source for quoted material The Daily Mail.

Pictured from left: Boy George, Delta Goodrem, (new hosts Darren McMullen and Renee Bargh), Guy Sebastian, and Kelly Rowland.

Ella Monnery sang Higher Lover for her audition…she joined Team Kelly.

The 23-year-old singer had three chairs turn, Guy fell asleep for some reason. She had a lot of energy and spirit on stage. Originally from New Zealand she lives in Victoria now.

Jesse Teinaki – his audition will be airing exactly 1 year after his first appearance. He chose to join Delta…

Watch this encore presentation

Luke Biscan his audition sang “Resolution” he chose Guy.

Olivia Kelly (per her Instagram post) she sang “Video Games” for her audition… 19-year-old Olivia Kelly said her debut on The Voice was her first serious attempt at singing in the past three years.

Sebastian Coe sang “Sucker” with George his coach.

Bukhu Ganburged Instagram He is a Mongolian throat singer who performed Mother and Father. Listen/Watch this rare talent. He is living in Sydney now.

Episode 2 Summary

Janie Gordon – “Songbird” by Fleetwood Mac, Everyone Turned – Picked Team Delta

Stephanie Cole – “The Middle” by Zedd, Turned Guy and Delta – Picked Team Guy

All-Star Chris Sebastian – “Jealous” by Labrinth, Everyone turned – Picked Team Kelly

Charlie MacFarlane – “Sign of the Times” by Harry Styles, George, and Kelly turned – Picked Team Kelly

Megan Vuilleman – “Emotion” by Destiny´s Child, No Chair Turns but Kelly performed a duet with her. Nice work Kelly!

Jimi the Kween – “Wicked Game” by Chris Issak, Everyone Tuned – Picked Team Guy

Timothy Bowen – “I Can´t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt, Everyone Turned – Picked Team Guy

Jimi The Kween “Wicked Game” episode 2 performance video finally released…

Janie Gordon sang Songbird and chose Delta to be her coach. Smart choices all around. Young fresh and talented…expect her to do well this season with the right coaching from Delta!

Chris Sebastian full audition in this clip watch… He chose Kelly as his coach after much angst… All-Star returns from 9 years ago…Season 1. Powerhouse professional performance. Smart choice to be away from his brother as he has been a big influence in the past no doubt. One to watch!

Stephanie Cole sang “The Middle” 24-year old from Adelaide turned Delta and Guy…she chose Guy to be her coach. Agree with the panels’ remarks in she overcompensated with all the runs but the building blocks, vocals were strong. Will watch her develop under Guy’s coaching.

Charlie McFarlane sang “Sign of The Times” for his blind audition… Geoge and Kelly turned. He performed in a One Direction tribute band, he is originally from Scotland as his speaking voice revealed. Watch Kelly struggle to make out his words…I thought he was in a One Day band! Anyway, raw vocals, young and has the potential to grow in this competition with Kelly. I hope they show some of their interactions this season!

Timothy James Bowen four-chair turn…with his audition “I Can’t Make You Love Me” for a four-chair turn. Then his bonus original song dedicated to his wife. Best vocal and controlled presentation this season so far and one of the best auditions ever! I wrote that before I watched Delta say almost the same thing…Charming, moving, and did not want it to end. He is 30 years of age and from Minnamurra NSW…and he chose Guy as his coach! Best male vocal ever on the Aussie series...must be a finalist and go on to bigger things! Memorable double audition! Hit repeat! Congrats to you Tim on the audition and good health to you and your family!
