Mateja Sardelis, along with five other girls in a band known as G-Nat!on, made history on The Voice Australia on Sunday night as the biggest group to ever audition for the competition.
They definitely didn’t disappoint.
Sardelis, 16, Isla Ward, 17, Taylah Silvestri, 18, Emma Caporaso, 18, Alessia Musolino, 17 and Rylee Vormelker, 17, had the audience on their feet after their showstopping rendition of ‘Teeth’ by Aussie boyband, 5 Seconds of Summer.
Their audition saw them turn the chairs of all four judges – Guy Sebastian, Rita Ora, Jessica Mauboy and Keith Urban.
The judges fought fiercely to coach the band, with Mauboy exclaiming “wow” repeatedly and Rita even getting up on stage before saying she wanted to become their seventh member.
“I’m going straight for the kill,” Rita said. “Your vocals are incredible and you all sound great together.”
“I promise you I will take you all the way.”
The pitch saw G-Nat!on ultimately choose Rita as their coach. The superstar singer exclaimed in excitement.
G-Nat!on was formed after the six met at Adelaide’s Australian College of the Performing Arts, and their soaring harmonies and sharp dance moves garnered them a fan-following with gigs at Carols by Candlelight and Adelaide’s iconic Christmas pageant.
They girls hope The Voice would mean they can share their inspiring message, and original music, to a broader audience.
