Season 8 News Contestants Voice Australia 2019

Here we cover all the latest performances without all the judging nonsense…add in some reviews and performance videos. This is our coverage of Season 8 News Contestants Voice Australia 2019 read.

This page covers the season as a whole and updated regularly. However, several videos sourced may be here and then taken down. Other links are provided on this page that will take you to those posts and videos, which may only show the music performance. The comments from the coaches are not always available.

All-stars v Newbies…

All-star v Newbie argument continues and strangely the producers have amplified the rhetoric featuring their all-star casting comeback.

I heard one speak about the risk she took to come back. Yes, you had a choice whether to come onto the show and make it or fail. Your courage is noted, however, you do not have any more right to win the season than a newbie. Risk pill swallow!

Why? Is it fame, money, stature, revenge, or even trying to reprove a past theory. The tapestry of people in this season is all about to clash in something that has a huge risk of failure or success. Which side are you on?

Post the battles this week several all-stars have fallen from the sky…at least a newbie or two still has a chance…slim all being said.

Oddities this season

Aside from the coach behavioural issues and rule bending.

Moreover, in smartness came Elsa, who took her own fate into her hands moving from Rowland’s coaching to be under Sebastian’s guidance. That move gave her a chance to be in the live shows. The best move of the season!

Dropping Chriddy to the curb was not positive for many fans.

The Battles Monday and Tuesday June 17-18, 2019. Results.

The Battles are here now. Two night of three battles from all four teams was a lot to digest. Yet at this intersection of time, the recorded shows ended with a mixed fortune of results.

Goodbyes to several popular acts including the all-star groups were played out. The next move for this season is live! Starting Monday, June 24, 2019. 

The results for both nights are below.

Preview night 2. Results night 2.

Elsa who was in the same trio as Denzel decided to go with Guy Sebastian. She turned down an offer from Kelly to be saved. In hidesight, this was a smart move, as she was Guy’s wildcard into the finals. Well done Elsa and Guy!

Round One of the Knockouts Monday, June 10, 2019, revealed…

Kelly:

Joey or Joe Dee was the first to perform this group of three from Team Kelly. Dakota was second with his guitar, George called it a bit corny, Guy called it weird to add to the drama.

Then Henry missed a word, and stopped, he relaunched into another shadow door…and walked away, “I can’t do this!” Then Kelly went to the stage…watch the video.

Updated: This will explain his situation prior to the event.

Speaking to New Idea he confirmed what really went wrong on stage.

“It was a bad week,” Henry says. “My father-in-law had died and his funeral was the day before my knock-out.”

“I also had a cold, so I was just coughing all the time. And I got this fear I was going to cough during my knock-out.”

“Then I was dealing with the emotional baggage.”

“The worst thought in my head was ‘I’m here, singing on national TV to further my career and I’m having to leave my family and my wife.”

“I felt like I got my priorities wrong.”

 

Surprise Kelly took Henry through to the Battles. No more chances per se! The whole theme was a set for his voice so viva last chance man.

No saves for either Joey or Dakota! Both have left the building, see you in 2023!

Dakota/Henry Can You Feel Love/Joey Dee

He performed his own song titled Akuma, the revolutionary rapper has made his mark in the sand. Does he have a serious flow? 

The Voice has confirmed a shakeup to its format this season with “All-Star” singers from previous seasons given another shot at glory, alongside new talent.

Described as “a world first for the competition” Nine confirms “the most championed fan favourites who missed out on their chance to win The Voice will get a chance at redemption when they return as All-Stars to compete against the new talent for a place on the teams of the four Coaches.”

“This year we are bringing back the All-Stars,” says Nine’s Head of Content Production and Development, Adrian Swift. “Over the years brilliant singers have been knocked out of The Voice along the way. Sometimes they weren’t confident enough, sometimes it wasn’t their best performance the day they were on stage, so this year they’re coming back.

“We think this new dimension of the show will make it really interesting, seeing people you know and love from the past seven seasons of The Voice coming back to try and turn a chair again.”

One of the higher profile All-Star entrants this season.

Jesse Teinaki – Be watching this Sunday 26th May to see his audition on the program.

X Factor contestant who, in 2013, was selected as a finalist in the music development program Telstra Road to Discovery, taking home the prestigious People’s Choice Award.

Before Fame

From a young age, he played in numerous local bands and performed at some of Tasmania’s most iconic music festivals.

Scheduled Start Date Season 8 2019

Sunday, May 19, 2019, is the official start date. The promotions are coming faster so you know we are getting closer. Last year the season commenced April 15, 2018.

Now they are talking about redemptions? So you are bringing back more returnees… will the audience accept that?

“This year we are bringing back the All Stars,” says Nine’s Head of Content Production and Development, Adrian Swift.

“Over the years brilliant singers have been knocked out of The Voice along the way.

Sometimes they weren’t confident enough, sometimes it wasn’t their best performance the day they were on stage, so this year they’re coming back.

“We think this new dimension of the show will make it really interesting, seeing people you know and love from the past seven seasons of The Voice coming back to try and turn a chair again.”

Maybe they want to let a vocal human win it rather than a digital voice?

Adult Judges with behaviourial issues – be warned – all the videos have now been taken down!

Another happy family video featuring four grown adults sitting in big red chairs…that actually spin. Rowlands and George spark some BS…while Delta shows class and Guy is just a guy!
