The 18 year old’s performance of French classic La Vie En Rose wowed the judges, social media and the press. With 2.5m viewers watching, why wouldn’t TT want a slice of the buzz?
It detailed some of her teenage singing performances, without ever mentioning Channel Nine.
News Limited today details her failure to win a place on Australia’s Got Talent, which oddly didn’t make the Seven story.
TT did manage to also profile a talented AGT singer, 18 year old Cody Bell, who sang Stevie Wonder’s Lately. His performance was seen by around 1.2m viewers, well below the 2.5m for The Voice.
With Seven’s talent show severely lagging Nine’s, it was so important to reinforce AGT that Today Tonight even claimed 2011’s Emmanuel Kelly brought AGT judges to tears when he sang Imagine.
As the footage clumsily showed, the nation first saw him singing on The X Factor.
