The Voice Australia's Rita Ora BLOCKS fellow judge Guy Sebastian from picking crooning footballer


The Voice Australia’s Guy Sebastian calls Rita Ora ‘scary’ after she BLOCKS the fellow judge from picking crooning footballer – after his surprising singing talent won him a standing ovation

On Monday’s premiere episode of The Voice Australia, judges Rita Ora and Guy Sebastian clashed over a talented contestant. 

Lachie Gill, a 23-year-old football player from the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, blew the coaches away with his cover of If the World Was Ending by JP Saxe and Julia Michael – and even got a standing ovation. 

Rita was so keen to get Lachie on her team, that she used the ‘block’ option to push Guy out of the running after they both turned their chairs.

‘You’re an amazing storyteller. That’s what made me turn. Your tone is really special,’ Rita gushed. 

She then said that she was ‘going all in’ and hit the block button, leaving Guy stunned. 

‘The blocks are frustrating,’ he complained, before Rita told him she ‘didn’t want to hear it’.

Just as she had hoped, Lachie picked to be on Rita’s team despite an impassioned pitch from Jessica Mauboy, who was still in the running.  

Later, Guy complained: ‘Rita’s out to get me, I think. ‘Cause she’s scary. Rita’s scary.’ 

Earlier in the episode, Lachie revealed he had almost been drafted into the AFL to play professional football but gave it all up to pursue music.
