“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.

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.

Laura is now part of coach Joel Madden’s team.
