Scottish songstress, Ciara Harvie did not make it past the blind auditions this week in a bid to become the UK’s next music sensation on The Voice.
19-year-old, Ciara from Longniddry, sang a stunning performance of the opera song Nessun Dorma, however, none of the judges turned around for her, and the devastated teenager left the stage.
However, a few moments later a stunned Ciara was asked back on stage and hugged Will.i.am and the other judges who told her to keep chasing her dreams.
After her performance, judge Gavin Rossdale said some encouraging words: “I should have turned around. I was dithering. You’re the only person we didn’t pick up and you’ve been brought back out. You have a beautiful voice. Just don’t give up on your dream.”
Sir Tom Jones had second thoughts, asking: “Did we make a mistake?”
Both Sir Tom Jones and Jennifer Hudson took to Twitter after Ciara’s performance. Tom tweeted: “You are very talented @ciarahmusic and you will make it! Just couldn’t press the button as I don’t feel I could have helped you!”
Jennifer also tweeted her support: “Such a big voice for someone so young @ciarahmusic! Keep going at it.”
Ciara had previously described appearing on The Voice to be “a dream come true” but her dreams did not become a reality on the show.
Last week, Scots boy/girl group, Bosie sent Twitter into meltdown after their explosive performance. Judge, Gavin Rossdale, whose mum is Scottish, pressed the button for them and accepted them onto his team.
