She may hold The Voice Australia crown, but Kelly Rowland is feeling the pressure now that Guy Sebastian has joined the coaching panel.
There was more sorrow than celebration on Tuesday's The Voice Australia.
Coaches Kelly Rowland, Delta Goodrem, Guy Sebastian and Boy George crushed the dreams of a staggering five artists, including two teenagers.
'I'm not here to kill anybody's confidence, the rest of the world does that to each of them,' said Kelly, while explaining the rejection is meant to be constructive.
The first to be left without any coach turning for him was Charlie Fittler.

Alana Orsulic, Aliqua Mad and Hugo Blascain also all failed to get through.
Each looking shattered, the coaches offered them some words of wisdom before producers brought the next hopeful out.

Melbourne rapper Denzel had the four coaches fighting over him at the Blind Auditions. And yet he might be the first person to appear on The Voice Australia who admits he can't actually sing. "Man, if I could sing, I would!" he tells TV WEEK with a laugh. "Singing would be dope! I definitely have a lot of praise for singers, the work that goes into it, and the notes they can hit. It's nuts!" Denzel, 20, started rapping four years ago, when he was in Year 11.
'Man, that was so close for me. So, so close.
Like, there's so many great things about your voice... I feel like you need to shake stuff out for a year,' said Guy to Hugo.
Later on in the episode, Keenan Te, 18, also failed to impress with his rendition of Destiny's Child hit Say My Name.
However, the audition proved to be a moment to cherish for the unsuccessful teen, as Guy and Kelly took to the stage to sing with him briefly.
'We are rooting for every single artist that walks out there, but having a no chair turn comes growth. It's what you take from that to get better,' said Delta later on.
