A stunning performance by a 12-year-old singer on The Voice has left all four celebrity judges with jaws dropped and eyes teary.
Janaki Easwar from Melbourne is the youngest artist to ever audition on the Aussie version of the TV singing competition.
But her age was just a number, with her moving rendition of Billie Eilish’s Lovely and an Indian classical number both moving the judges and the audience to a standing ovation.

On night two of The Voice Blind Auditions, Janaki appeared slightly nervous before her performance in front of judges, Aussie artists Keith Urban, Jess Mauboy, Guy Sebastian and British singer Rita Ora.
“A lot of other artists are twice my age, three times my age, sometimes even four times my age,” she said to the camera.
“It’s scary thinking I’m the youngest here.”
But after she walked out on to the stage, any jitters were gone with her delivering an emotional version of Eilish’s Lovely with “Indian influence”.
Her impressive vocals made Rita turn her chair first, followed by Keith, Jess then Guy.
Her parents in the wings were visibly ecstatic – with her dad fist-pumping and jumping and her mother in tears.
When she finished all four judges stood in applause.
After Janaki’s performance she had to choose which of the four judges she wanted to be mentored by.
