Back in 2014, Bella Paige rose to fame in Australia after finishing as one of two runners-up on the first season of The Voice Kids. This success resulted in SBS selecting Bella to become Australia’s first ever Junior Eurovision Song Contest entrant. Bella, now 16-years-old, is continuing her strife for success by participating in the seventh season of The Voice of Australia… and she’s reached the final!
Team Kelly Rowland!
Bella’s audition for The Voice of Australia aired back in April in which she performed a cover of Kesha’s Praying. All four coaches turned their chairs for Bella, indicating they wanted the Junior Eurovision star on their team. Bella opted to join Kelly Rowland’s team instead of joining Joe Jonas, Boy George and Delta Goodrem. Of course, Delta wrote Bella’s Junior Eurovision entry, My Girls.
Bella progressed through the knockout and battle rounds of the competition with performances of It Will Rain by Bruno Mars and Sorry Not Sorry by Demi Lovato. Upon reaching the live shows, Bella has been saved by the public vote every single week and has never fallen into the sing-off for the least popular acts. Her live show performances have consisted of Never Enough by Loren Allred, No Tears Left To Cry by Ariana Grande, Chandelier by Sia and the Céline Dion version of All By Myself.
Just one week until the final
Next Sunday, Bella will take part in the grand final of The Voice of Australia against three other finalists. We wish her the best of luck!
Bella’s historic Junior Eurovision debut
After her success on The Voice Kids in 2014, SBS selected Bella to represent Australia in their debut Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2015. My Girls finished in eighth place, the first in a run of what has become three consecutive top ten finishes in the contest for Australia. Alexa Curtis placed fifth in 2016 while Isabella Clarke secured a top three finish with Speak Up in Tbilisi last year.
