The Voice Australia 2013 ran its first Live Finals Monday night for a lengthy show lasting two and a half hours. Among the formers is one of the newest Aussie reality TV favourites, Harrison Craig. Here are the songs the contestants sang during this important round.
The first contestants to sing for their journey on the sensational Aussie singing competition are those from Team Joel.
Michael Paynter | Bruno Mars' "Locked Out Of Heaven"
Joel Madden loved Michael Paynter, but Delta Goodrem was on the lukewarm side.
Michael Stangel | Cold Chisel's "Four Walls"
Joel sounded proud of Michael Stangel, noting the guy is taking the competition seriously and proving his chops on the show.
Danny Ross | Steve Miller's "The Joker"
For his "style and swag," Joel said he's a fan of Danny Ross. However, the mentor worried that The Voice Australia 2013 voters might not "get" him.
Kiyomi Vella | Bjork's "Oh So Quiet"
Something must be said about Kiyomi Vella's ability to command the stage. She looked and sounded like a pro. It will be surprising if the Aussies didn't vote for her.
After his team is done, Joel used his 'Save' on Danny Ross. Next up is Team Seal. Among the contestants in Seal's team is early favourite Harrison Craig who has climbed the iTunes with his previous performances.
Mitchell Anderson | The Beatles' "Dear Prudence"
Compelling number. Ricky Martin could be on I-am-adorable mode when he said, he wants to be like Mitchell Anderson when he 'grows up.'
Alex Gibson | Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues"
He may not be half the performer Johnny Cash was, but Alex seemed to have done his best.
Jac Stone | Alanis Morissette's "Uninvited"
Ricky sensed some blazing power in Jac's performance.
Harrison Craig | Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling In Love"
The Voice Australia 2013 seems to have really changed Harrison Craig's life - as well as those inspired by him and his speech condition - forever. All the judges adored him.
Seal chose to use his 'Save' on Alex Gibson. Team Delta's turn followed.
Tim Morrison | The Beatles' "Something"
Seal was looking for more passion in the performance.
Celia Pavey | Dolly Parton's "Jolene"
Ricky is a fan, saying Celia Pavey is "so very special."
Jackie Sannia | Demi Lovato's "Skyscraper"
She puts her own twist to the radio-friendly song and came out a star.
Steve Clisby | Bill Withers' "Just The Two Of Us"
Respect. Seal calls his number "a master class." Delta saved Steve Clisby when Seal chose Mitchell Anderson over him during The Voice Australia 2013 Battle Rounds. Now Delta used her 'Save' again on Steve to make sure he stays another week. Team Ricky went up next.
Simon Meli | The Rolling Stones' "Sympathy For The Devil"
Ricky is proud of the aspiring rocker, and called him a "hell of an entertainer."
Caterina Torres | Jennifer Lopez' "My Love Don't Cost A Thing"
The judges generally liked her number. Delta attempts to impart some vocal tips.
Miss Murphy | Beyonce's "1+1"
Seal was obviously very impressed. Miss Murphy has also been a consistent crowd favourite on The Voice Australia 2013.
Luke Kennedy | John Farnham's "Please Don't Ask Me"
There is no doubt Luke could have done much better, nay, soared, with a different song. Then again, he nailed it. Delta gave him props for having topped the iTunes chart earlier.
Ricky used his 'Save' on Luke, although there is a good chance the voters would back him, anyway. Did your favourites on The Voice Australia perform well?
