Laura Bunting gets approval from “Voice Australia” judges for Wuthering Heights

Whilst we’re on the subject of talent shows, New Zealander Laura passed her “blind audition” on Oz Nine Network’s ‘The Voice’ with a rendition of Wuthering Heights which went down very well.

Close your eyes and open your ears, The Voice Australia is set to be the musical and social media phenomenon of 2012. On The Voice the four superstar musician coaches begin to select teams of twelve based solely on an artist’s voice. Seal, Joel Madden, Delta Goodrem and Keith Urban, are competing as coaches – each one hoping to discover, and nurture Australia’s next great voice. During the blind auditions, if a coach is impressed, they push a button to select the artist for their team of competitors, (they’ll need to select 12 acts in total). At this point, the coach’s chair will swivel so that they can face the artists they have selected. If more than one coach selects the artist, the power shifts to the artist who may choose which coach they want to work with throughout the competition. An artist is eliminated when they have not been chosen by one of our coaches who are superstar music talents themselves… ”

    I know we’ll be short of news for a few years now, but do we have to be told everytime someone murders one of her lovely songs?
