He may not have been crowned the winner, but The Voice runner-up Hoseah Partsch is already making strides toward superstardom.

After losing out to Judah Kelly on Sunday night, the 18-year-old singer was invited by mentor Boy George to join him and his band Culture Club on tour. They are set to embark across the nation throughout November and December.

In a recent interview with The Daily Telegraph, the British superstar revealed he is “delighted” to have the young talent with him on the road.

“I'm delighted to welcome him to the Culture Club tour,” the 56-year-old said. “'He's not only a wonderfully talented artist, he's a fabulous guy with a big heart and I'm backing him.”

Throughout the competition, the pair developed a strong bond. Hoseah, who entered The Voice for his family, has previously described his mentor has a father-like figure.

While he didn’t win, the young talent believes the experience has changed his life.

“It’s brought my family together. We have so much more love for each other,” he said. “They motivate me. I want to do whatever it takes to make them happy.”

For those few who aren’t familiar with Culture Club, they became a global sensation in the ‘80s with hit songs such as “Karma Chameleon” and “Do You really Want To Hurt Me” – you know the ones.

The international superstars seem to be quite fond of Australia having toured three times here in the past 18 months. It’s a celebration for fans who previously suffered through a 16 year-long absence.

Meanwhile, Team Delta are still celebrating Judah’s win who walked away with a recording contract with Universal Music Australia and $100,000 cash prize.
