The Voice Australia Premieres With 2.17 Million Viewers; Watch Karise Eden's Blind Audition

What Did You Think of The Voice?

Darren McMullen, host of The Voice, was right in telling us, “The Voice is guaranteed to rate big on Sunday, there’s no doubt about it.” The show’s premiere pulled in an average Australian audience of 2.17 million, and reportedly peaked at 4.1 million. While posting about the Logies red carpet I managed to catch most of the show, which kicked off with the blind audition stage. Coaches Keith Urban, Delta Goodrem, Joel Madden and Seal first performed Seal’s “Crazy” before they took their places in their special swivelling chairs that have their backs to the singers. One by one, talented singers vied for the coaches’ attention in the hope that one — or even all — would “turn” for them. The highlight of the night was 19-year-old Karise Eden, who’s had a rough upbringing — she opened her performance of “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” so strongly that all four coaches turned for her within a few bars of the song. (She totally has an Adele vibe, no?) The blind auditions are set to get bigger and better, especially with tonight’s performance from a legally blind contestant. Did you love The Voice?
