The Voice Australia: Thomas Bleach recaps The Semi Final

The Voice Australia: Thomas Bleach recaps The Semi Final

With the season nearly over, it’s time for Australia to vote for  winner. 

Following the powerhouse performances from the top eight in The Semi-Final on Tuesday night, Johnny Manuel, Chris Sebastian, Siala and Stellar Perry were chosen by their coaches to represent their team in the Grand Finale.

Each artist delivered a show-stopping performance worthy of a spot in the Grand Finale, while also showcasing a different side of their artistry as they overcame their inner demons. 

Sadly with only four spots in the epic Grand Finale on Sunday, Masha Mnjoyan, Jesse Teinaki, Mark Furze and Timothy Bowen were eliminated. 

Timothy Bowen was a front runner following his emotionally charged blind audition. With a giant space in the Australian country music industry waiting to be filled, he had the potential to be the next international success story following in Morgan Evans’ footsteps.

The Voice Armenia winner Masha Mnjoyan showed a lot of growth and potential throughout her time on the series by learning to open up her heart and putting aside her immaculate professionalism. 

Her last performance on the show was a popstar worthy rendition of Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s ‘Rain On Me’. With full choreography and sassy attitude, this was a fun performance to watch while she also didn’t let one note slip. 

Jesse Teinaki returned to the show as an All Star and showcased how hard he had worked on growing as a performer and vocalist with consistently emotive performances each week. His final performance of ‘Cellophane’ from FKA Twigs was one that felt like it deserved a ticket to the Grand Finale, and will go down as his best performance to date. 

From playing a much-loved character on Home And Away to showing Australia this other side of who he was as a bonafide rocker, Mark Furze electrified audiences each week. After losing his voice before the final performance, he managed to find strength and still nailed his rendition of 5 Seconds Of Summer’s global smash ‘Youngblood’. 

Voting is now open for the first and only public vote of the season as viewers get to choose who wins The Voice Australia 2020 out of Johnny Manuel, Chris Sebastian, Siala and Stellar Perry. 


TMN’S TOP PERFORMANCES FROM EACH GRAND FINALISTS

Johnny Manuel 

Choosing his coach’s song in The Showdowns was a risky move, but Johnny Manuel made Guy Sebastian’s ‘Before I Go’ completely his own with this powerful and emotive performance. 

Chris Sebastian

Admitting that he’s always felt like he’s been in his brother’s shadow, Chris Sebastian well and truly walked into his own light this season. 

Showcasing an array of beautiful ballads, he switched things up in The Showdowns and showed a playful and fun side to his artistry with a rendition of Charlie Puth’s ‘Attention’. 

Siala

Siala is one of the most original artists on this season of The Voice Australia. With every performance, she’s showcased a different side of her heart through original songs and impressive covers. 

Her Semi Final performance of The Black Eyed Peas’ ‘Where Is The Love’ was one of those special moments. 

Stellar Perry

Stellar Perry has been a hotly tipped front runner ever since her emotional Blind Audition. Capturing her raw talent through a teary performance of ‘Always Remember Us This Way’ from the A Star Is Born soundtrack, she had everyone’s hearts straight away. 

The Voice Australia concludes this Sunday on Nine
