The Voice artist Henry Olonga was cool, calm and collected when we first met him during his Blind Audition weeks ago. However, his performance during the first Knockout round on Monday night was anything but polished.

The 42-year-old former Zimbabwe cricketer — who was paired with Joey Dee and Dakota Striplin during the Knockouts — froze on stage when attempting to sing The Lion King classic, 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight'.

Viewers across the nation were left stunned when Henry Olonga went blank and stormed off stage during Monday’s episode of The Voice . And on Tuesday, the 42-year-old revealed the real reason why he stopped midway through his performance. ‘It was a bad week.

It was a bad week. My father-in-law was getting buried in Adelaide the day before my performance. I'm thinking, "Gosh, I'm here on a reality TV show and my wife had lost her parent." Don't get my wrong, my wife was fine with me going and doing the show, as long as I could fly back again.

And you weren't feeling well either, right?

I had a cold as well. I was sort of dosed up on all the stuff to make me stop coughing. So when I went up on the stage, I guess I wasn't in the best head space. I had rehearsed well, but in that moment everything just went blank. What do they call it? A brain fart? It was just the words were there and then they were gone. It just wasn't a great week.

But really there's nothing to say. I can't say anything but the fact that I just stood there and the words didn't come. They went into the hole in the ground of lost words. But it was lovely to have the support of the audience and lovely to have Kelly come on stage.

The Voice 2019: The heartbreaking reason why Henry Olonga froze on stage during the Knockouts After a shaky start, Henry felt the love with this Lion King performance What did it mean to you for Kelly to go up on stage and show her support?

All of us have clangers in life. We all have moments when we struggle with self-belief, moments where you just have a little bit of doubt. And it's just a matter of someone putting an arm on your shoulder and saying. "You're still good." It just sort of refocuses the mind. It was good she came up. The other thing is I had no idea what's supposed to happen in a situation like that. I didn't know if I was supposed to stay there and try again.

Did you just want to walk off stage?

No, no,  no. I didn't want to walk off — I just wasn't sure what I was supposed to do. It wasn't like I wasn't familiar with the words because I practised in the rehearsals and got through it OK. But come the evening, when my brain scrambled, it's not like the words disappeared completely — they were still there. I just needed to clear my mind and get rid of the clutter and the anxiety... and the cough!

After your performance, Kelly commented that you're too hard on yourself. Is she right?

Look, I think when you're on a show like that, you just want to give your best every time. You want to be flawless and when you're flustered, it just takes away from your desire to perform. I'm not a perfectionist, but at the back of your mind you remember this is a singing competition — it's a process of elimination. In other words, the coaches are looking for a reason not to pick you. Because at this stage in the competition, we're down to top 48 singers in the country and, rest assured, the judges are looking for something to separate you. They're looking for a stuff-up and I have given Kelly a bucket full of stuff-ups.

You looked genuinely surprised Kelly still picked you to continue in the competition. Did you feel bad for Dakota and Joey Dee?

Yeah! I kind of liked Dakota's performance better than my own. I think from a technical point of view, he nailed everything — he did all his lines, he did the choreography well, running around playing his guitar… I thought he was great. Then I come along and stuff up. Joey and Dakota go on stage and nail their performances and then Olonga comes along and takes the level of professionalism down a notch. I was so apologetic to the guys and it was so wrong to pick me.

Delta Goodrem just walked off set in tears in the most heartbreaking Voice episode ever

Delta Goodrem just walked off set in tears in the most heartbreaking Voice episode ever After a heartbreaking tribute on The Voice by the Koi Boys to the Christchurch terrorist attack, Delta Goodrem cried and walked off set. The Voice has had its fair share of emotional moments this season. From Guy Sebastian breaking down in tears to a transgender teenager's inspiring Blind Audition, the Channel Nine singing show has really tugged at the heartstrings. But Tuesday night's episode may have been the most emotional episode The Voice has ever aired, with both contestants and coaches breaking down in tears following the The Koi Boys' battle against Daniel Shaw.

'I can't do this': The shocking moment The Voice contestant Henry Olonga froze mid-song before storming off stage during Monday night's episode. Henry managed a roaring rendition of the song, before being picked to join Team Kelly, surviving the knockout round despite his fumble.

When you get through, it's part exhilaration and part relief. There was basically exhilaration for I didn't go back to my hotel thinking, "I nailed it tonight." I went back to my hotel thinking, "Gosh, I screwed up. What just happened?" You get one shot at this and I was just thinking, "I've made a fool of myself on national TV." And you're thinking, "Was it worth?" In that moment, if you asked me on the night was it worth it, I probably would've said no.

But in hindsight, one of the lessons of my life — if you know the story of my life — you'll know I start very badly with most things. I tend to stuff up the first few things I do and I learn my lesson. I pull things together and I'm often able to fix things in the end. At the end of the day, I just get up. I still delivered the vocal, whether it was flawless or not. I still made it happen and I finished.

You're a motivational speaker, so that must've helped you get back up again?

What I say is it's not how you start, it's how you finish. I go to schools I tell them that. I go to businesses, I tell them that. And here I was having to believe my own words. Sometimes life doesn't hand you the hand you want it to give you, and sometimes the cards you're dealt aren't ideal. But with all your fortitudes and gumptions, stand up and make a strong finish. I hope I did that. I was a living example of how you can stuff up but still come back and carve something out.
