What’s the secret to winninging The Voice? Self-belief and confidence is literally half the e battle, I don’t care are who you are. If a performer doesn’t sn’t have confidence ce then they won’t t pop. And it has to be e real. I think people can smell it when it’s’s not and the Oz public lic is very quick to pick up p on that. Everywhere [inn the world] can readd [when someone’s fakingng it] but Australians cann read that like a mug. It’s like you guys have got it down to a science nce and [audiences are] like, ‘that’s bulls---. I don’t believe that!’
You’ve had an incredibly successful career, but do you ever doubt yourself professionally? Yes, it’s the worst. The reasonreaso I say it’s the worst is it’s so hard to come out of. You have to think positively about passion and all tho those things that matter. Passio Passion is not for purchase.
What makes you fee feel insecure? When you’re home too long and you don’t get a phone call to do anything.anything And you think, ‘God,‘ God, I really missmis performing’. You keep getting phone calls aboutabo everything else else. It’s not like youyo don’t get phonepho calls but it’s justju phone calls about the wrong stuff, stuff you’re notno excited about.about
