Greek Australian, Despina Savva, is through to the Play-Offs on The Voice Australia 2020 after judge Kelly Rowland didn’t hesitate to “save” the superstar during last night’s Battle Round.
The 14-year-old, who was initially on team Boy George, went up against Siala during the battle with a stunning rendition of Jorja Smith’s hit song ‘Teenage Fantasy.’
Despite telling Despina she’d hit some “really strong notes” and connected with the room, Boy George picked Siala and her rapping skills to remain on his team. But as soon as the opportunity came for the coaches to save Despina, both George and Kelly Rowland didn’t hesitate to push their button.
“We have unfinished business. We haven’t even done what we’ve started to do,” George appealed to Despina. “I would have put you both through if I could, and I’m trying to do that right now.”
Despina didn’t look too convinced.
“Working with artists like Despina really gets all my senses going. You are so meant to be here and I want to see how you grow, but I want to be the Coach to help you get there,” Kelly pitched.
In a bold and surprising move, Despina decided to ditch George and take up a spot on #TeamKelly.
“I love you George but, you know, you picked Siala, so I’m going to give Kelly a chance,” was her reasoning.
We’re so excited to see what this shining star does next!
