EntertainmentThe Voice 2019: Natasha Stuart on her moving performance with coach Delta Goodrem
'Are they ever going to change their clothes?': Viewers are left baffled as The Voice Australia judges wear the exact SAME outfits in every episode
It's the number one question on every viewer's lips. And ever since The Voice Australia's eighth season debuted three weeks ago, fans have been wondering why the judges wear the same clothes in every episode. In a recent tweet, one viewer asked, 'Are these Voice judges ever [going to] change their clothes?!!' © Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited Recycled looks: Ever since The Voice Australia's eighth season debuted three weeks ago, fans have been wondering why the judges wear the same clothes in every episode.
Natasha Stuart is progressing to the next stage of The Voice Australia after 'knocking out' two of her fellow artists in an extremely emotional performance.
The 42-year-old was grouped with Emma Sophina and Kimberley Bowden by their coach, Delta Goodrem, for a moving 'Survivors'-themed sing-off — Emma was a survivor on the Hudson River plane crash; Kimberley lost her father two years ago; and Natasha has been diagnosed with breast cancer last year and had just finished 20 weeks of chemotherapy by the time she did her Blind Audition.
During the ladies' rehearsal session, Delta was so moved by their performances and stories that she asked if she could join them on stage for the Knockout, something that hasn't been done before — fitting, considering Delta, 34, has overcome her own life challenge, after being diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma at the age of 18.

'I don't feel like you're listening to any of our advice,' coach Delta Goodrem said, prompting Kirrah to abruptly walk off.
"I think I can speak for the other girls too, but we felt so incredibly blessed to have that moment all together," Natasha tells 9Honey Celebrity of having Delta play piano for them on stage. "It was that thing too where we were like, look, even if we don't get through, look and what an incredible moment and experience this is going to be. Having that connection of course made it all the more emotional. It was amazing and hard for us, because it was so close to home for the three of us. It just made a great experience even more connected and bonded."
For Natasha, one of the more nerve-wracking parts of the performance was having to watch Emma and Kimberley go before her. "I thought they were both absolutely extraordinary. They're both incredible singers and smashed their songs, they just did beautiful work," she says. "It's a hard thing because you have to focus on yourself, and not get swept away in their beautiful performances. They both have such incredible stories as well, and sang in a very moving way."

The Voice Australia coaches are meant to support and guide their artists through the competition while preparing them for chart domination.
Understandably, given their stories and the theme, Delta gave her artists songs that conveyed the spirit of overcoming huge difficulties — Emma sang 'The Climb', Kimberley performed 'Titanium' and Natasha was tasked with 'Everybody Hurts'.
"It was probably the most nervous I've ever been going into a song, because I just knew I was going to have to connect to something quite full on, and painful, and quite emotional," she explains. Having to get across all the emotion with the best vocal possible, and in such a short amount of time, was a challenge in itself. "It's that thing of walking on the edge of the emotion so you can still sing the song, and connect to the audience, but not get lost in your own experience, because it's about sharing, and you have to convey the story that you're telling."
Something that has kept Natasha going is the feedback she's received from a "beautiful Facebook and Instagram community called Cancer Chicks Australia." She says she's in contact with many young women every day, and that she was thinking of them as she sang the moving lyrics to 'Everybody Hurts'.
The Voice Australia's Delta Goodrem reflects on her career
As a coach in her seventh season of The Voice Australia, Delta Goodrem recognises the industry has changed dramatically since she first started out. And, for her, it’s obvious when an artist is on the stage for the wrong reasons. Almost two decades have passed since Delta Goodrem released Born To Try – the song that would catapult her to stardom. It was 2003, and she'd already found fame on Neighbours, where she starred as shy schoolgirl Nina Tucker. But in the years that followed, she became a household name, topping the charts, landing roles in various productions and ultimately becoming a coach on The Voice Australia.
"I just wanted to honour them, and honour that experience," she says. "Also the lyrics of that song, the 'Hang on' and 'The day is long', it took me straight back to that first week of chemo treatment, and just how hard it is, and just knowing all these young women going through it as well… I was wanting to sing for them, to try and be a light to help them stay on the path, and hang on, and just keep going."
After all, that was a big part of Natasha's reason for auditioning for The Voice in the first place, and why Delta chose her to progress throughout the competition: to be a face for people fighting cancer who may not be represented in the literature.
'Time to switch to another channel': Outraged fans SLAM The Voice judges after former Hi-5 star Nathan Foley is cut in the first knockout round
Nathan Foley made a triumphant return to the spotlight with a thrilling blind audition during last Monday's episode of The Voice. But the 39-year-old's star turn was quickly extinguished as he was cut in the first knockout round. Delta Goodrem picked All Star contestant Sheldon Riley to stay on Team Delta, while Kelly Rowland saved Luke Zanc, eventually pairing him in a duo with his wife Tannah.
"I didn't see people who looked like me going through cancer treatment, and even if someone in the public eye is diagnosed, you hear about their diagnosis and then they disappear for 18 months, and then they re-emerge and everything's fine!" Natasha explains. "I wanted other young women to have a face out there, have a different face that they could look at, that's not one of the older women on the brochures.
"With breast cancer, in the literature the average age is 55, and while there's some information that's available, it just seems to miss the 20, 30 and early-40-year-olds. I just wanted to be representative of that, and to just show that progression of what this looks like, to be going through treatment and to be just on the other side, with potentially more stuff to come. Just be that voice."
