12-year-old Gezel stuns coaches on The Voice Australia


12-year-old Gezel Bardossi stunned all four coaches on The Voice Australia with her singing performance on Monday night.

Gezel, who’s mum Nikki is Greek, hit the stage during round two of The Voice blind auditions, singing Aretha Franklin’s Chain of Fools.

Her incredible performance saw international coach Jason Derulo turn his chair first, followed by Jessica Mauboy, Rita Ora and Guy Sebastian. Each of them looked baffled as they realised a young girl was singing.

After finishing on a high note and consulting with her parents, Gezel ultimately opted to choose Team Rita as she progresses to the next round of The Voice Australia.

“To sound like that at 12, I’ve literally never seen anything like it,” Rita said after Gezel chose her.

Gezel is the youngest artist on this year’s competition.
