Emotions are running high on the set of The Voice this week, with not one but two coaches breaking down while on set.

As the Blind Auditions continue after the launch of season nine, it’s the return of two All Stars artists that rock both Guy Sebastian and Delta Goodrem.

It’s a family affair when Chris Sebastian – Guy’s younger brother – takes the stage for another chance to take the title.

Chris was on season one of The Voice in 2012 and, despite not making it through the end, felt ready to go again. Guy says he felt the pressure of Chris competing.

“I’m so close to my brothers, I would die for them,” Guy, 38, tells TV WEEK.

“We’re such a tight family unit. That’s why I was so nervous about Chris doing the show. He was approached last year, and after I had a year of being a coach, I knew it was a safe space for him to go back into.”

Viewers will see how emotional Guy becomes when he realises his brother has come back to audition.

“I was embarrassed by how I was after he sang,” Guy says.

“You get emotional, but then I was crying a bit too much and went into the ugly cry. Then it got weird for everyone, and it was like, ‘OK, we get it – he’s your brother.'”

Guy wasn’t the only coach to shed tears on set this week, with Delta admitting she too struggled during the Blind Auditions.

All Star artist Jesse Teinaki returns, sending shockwaves through the long-time coach.

“I felt such a connection to him,” Delta, 35, says of Jesse, who was on her team in 2019, but wasn’t taken through to the live rounds.

“Jess is such beautiful person. I think he was one of the best auditions this year and it was very emotional. He’s really special – for me, he’s one of the highlights of the Blinds.”
