A knockout performance by singer Johnny Manuel ...gets upstaged by Coach antics.

Viewers were blown away by singer Johnny Manuel last night on The Voice, with some describing his performance as the best audition in the show’s 9 year history.
US-born Manuel soared with his rendition of “Home” by Diana Ross.
Manuel who relocated to Australia after performing alongside Hugh Sheridan in California Crooners Club, has previously wowed judges on America’s Got Talent in 2017. He also represented Bulgaria at Eurovision in 2018.
But after Kelly Rowland was “Blocked” after a 4-chair turned, some viewers were incensed his moment has been upstaged by the coaches.
The best live audition in #TheVoiceAU history.

But to me the last performance was definitely the best one of the night but in my opinion Kelly ruined it on #TheVoiceAU tonight.

That whole exchange perfectly illustrated why this show has never been able to create a star. It doesn't matter how amazingly talented the artist may be, the judges will always rush to make it all about themselves. They don't want you to remember the artist. #TheVoiceAU
