A TALENTED Cirencester teenager wowed the nation on TV with her singing performance.

Lilly Hobbs, 13, stunned The Voice Kids judges Danny Jones and Will.I.Am when she appeared during the blind audition stage on Saturday night's episode.

The talented singer, who came 5th out of 10,000 entries in the UK open Mic competition last year, made it through to the next stage with her version of Lost Without You by Freya Ridings.

Lilly said: "Being here is literally the best thing ever. Singing means the absolute world to me because it’s my favourite thing to do."

Mum Erika added: "I’m beyond proud, words can’t describe."

The Voice is a reality television series that features four coaches 'looking for a talented new artist, who could become a global superstar'.

The coaches do not judge the artists by their looks, personalities, stage presence or dance routines— only their vocal ability.

If a coach likes what they hear, a button-press allows their chair to spin around and face the performer, signifying that they would like to mentor them.

If more than one does so, then the artist selects a coach. However, if no coach turns around then the artist is sent home.

Lilly's performance wowed both Danny Jones and Will-i-am, who battled it out to secure Lilly's spot on their team.

Will.I.Am said: "You have a very powerful voice Lilly.

"I also like your dynamics when you sing really soft Lilly and then went really power Lilly. That was awesome."

Danny added: "I have one place left and I turned, that’s how good that was.

"It’s the emotion, that’s what made me turn, I felt it, even from your low notes, that’s the hardest place to get emotion.

"Who cares if I have one place left you deserve it."

The 13-year-old chose Will.I.Am as her mentor and residents can expect to see her appear on the show in the coming weeks.
