Channel Nine had been touting it as the TV moment of the year and last night we finally got to watch Rachael Leahcar’s blind audition on The Voice. In case you missed the promos or performance, Rachael has a degenerative disorder that has left her 90 percent blind. The 18-year-old needed help getting onto the stage, but once she was left to sing Edith Piaf’s “La Vie En Rose” it was just her voice that mesmerised the coaches and made all four turn around for her. After Keith Urban, Delta Goodrem, Joel Madden and Seal all made their cases for who Rachael should choose, she went with Team Delta, which is poignant for a few reasons. One: Delta brought up her own battle with cancer as a teenager, and how she could relate to Rachael, and two: Delta had struggled to get contestants on her bench after singers she turned for chose other coaches. Get up to speed with Rachael’s audition now — after this and the audition of Guy Sebastian’s younger brother Chris, we’re wondering how this show can get better!
