The Voice Australia: Meet your top 12 contestants and 4 wildcards

See who made the cut...

Last night's final battle rounds on The Voice Australia saw our four coaches - Delta Goodrem, Kelly Rowland, Boy George and Joe Jonas - secure their final teams and reveal their wildcard entrants.
Get to know your new Top 12 before the live rounds start on May 20th, with our quick round-up below!

Team Delta

Ben Clark, 33, VIC:
33-year-old Ben has performed in front of the inimitable Oprah and his holiness The Pope as part of the the Opera group, The Ten Tenors. After several years of running a coffee cart, he hopes to once again pursue his musical dreams.
Jacinta Gulisano, 24, NSW:
24-year-old Jacinta is a realist: she's giving herself one more shot to make it in music, before deciding if she should re-focus and go to university instead. With incredible versions of Whitney Houston's How Will I Know and Pink's What About Us, we'd say she's well on her way to achieving her dream.
Trent Bell, 27, QLD:
Having previously appeared on The X Factor Australia, Trent once found success with his boy band The Collective. The 27-year-old is taking one more shot at a solo career as part of Team Delta, where he's hoping to finally catch a break in the industry.

Team Kelly

Sam Perry, 28, WA:
You're bound to be familiar with 28-year-old Sam, whose controversial audition has been one of the most-talked about moments of this season. The looping artist auditioned with an incredible rendition of Prince's When Doves Cry, which saw all four coaches turn and fight for him. He's certainly one to watch!
Bella Paige, 16, VIC:
The 16-year-old contestant from Victoria blew the judges away with her powerful cover of Kesha's Praying during the blind auditions. It's no wonder she has such an incredible stage presence, as she was a runner up on The Voice Kids and represented Australia in Junior Eurovision 2015.
Brock Ashby, 24, NSW
The 24-year-old body transformation coach is ready to achieve his own goals. After losing his mother at the age of 12, Brock gathered his courage and sang for her for the first time at her funeral. All these years later, he's on The Voice Australia now to pursue his dream of singing professionally.

Team Boy George

Sheldon Riley, 18, QLD:
18-year-old Sheldon endured constant bullying as a teenager, and sought comfort in music. He hopes The Voice Australia will be the one place he's finally allowed to be himself, and after receiving a four-chair-turn in his blind audition, it's safe to say the team are welcoming him with open arms!
Luke Anthony, 27, NSW:
27-year-old Luke has been trying to make it in the music business for years, and grew tired of the endless industry meetings about his image, the marketing and the publicity. He entered the competition for a chance to focus on one thing alone: his music.
Chang Po Ching, 26, QLD:
Born with sight in only one eye, Chang believed the singing competition would be the perfect opportunity for him to be judged on his voice alone – and what a voice it is! He may only be 26-years-old, but Chang is seriously old at heart. The Queenslander has blown the coaches away with his soulful renditions of classics from The Isley Brothers, Otis Redding and The Beatles.

Team Joe

Sally Skelton, 19, QLD:
You may recognise Sally from last season, where she progressed to the battle rounds before losing out to Bojesse Pigram. After receiving a four-chair turn and standing ovation for her audition, it seems the 19-year-old is set to make a statement this year.
Aydan Calafiore
This 17-year-old from Victoria is a pop-star in the making. He received a four-chair turn from the coaches after his rendition of Despacito during the blind auditions, before finding himself on Joe's team.
Ben Sekali, 24, NSW:
The 24-year-old contestant is on a mission to save soul music, and with beautiful covers of Sam Smith's One Last Song, and Sam Cooke's A Change Is Gonna Come, we'd say he's succeeding. Ben bonded with his coach, Joe, over their connection to singing from church, with Joe saying Ben is "the voice I was looking for."


The four wildcards will be put up to vote by the Australian public, with the 'winner' becoming the 13th contestant to make it to the live rounds.
AP D'Antonio, 35, SA:
Indie blues & roots musician AP has been working on his craft since his 10th birthday, when his father gave him his first guitar. His unique voice has captivated viewers this season, with his coach Joe saying he was 'thrilled' to have such a distinct voice on his team. He was stolen by Kelly, and is now her wildcard.
Mikayla Jade, 18, SA:
The 18-year-old's gentle and enchanting voice wowed fans of the show, and she proved her musical chops by performing an incredible original song after her blind audition. She was originally Team Delta, before being stolen by George during the battle rounds.
Nathan Brake, 26, NSW:
26-year-old Nathan scored a place on Team Delta and a giance when he proposed to his boyfriend, Mitchell, after his blind audition. If things don't work out on the show, he always has Kelly's offer to sing at his wedding.
Homegrown (Kasey, Katelyn, Liam), 15, 20, 18, QLD:
Sisters Kasey and Katelyn teamed up with their brother, Liam, to form a folksy country group to entertain themselves while living on a remote cattle station with their family in Far North Queensland. As the only group to make it to the battle rounds, Homegrown should be proud no matter what happens next!
