Kelly Row­land is deep into a love af­fair with hAus­tralia Aus­tralia and luck­ily for the mul­ti­ple Grammy awardd winner and Chan­nel 9, au­di­ences iences have loved The Voicee coach right back.

Delta Goodrem rem can’t stop singing her neww BFF’s praises and view­ers haveve fallen for the singer’s warmth, h, smarts and down-to-earth na­ture on the tal­ent search ch se­ries.

But, as The Voice fi­nale looms, Row­land ow­land - and her fi­nals hope, Fasika Ayallew - will need all the lovee they can get to take out the crown.

Here, The Des­tiny’s Child d star shares her se­crets ets for suc­cess and opens up about t her lin­ger­ing ca­reer r and moth­er­hood od fears and the mo­ment she thought she’d lost her iden­ti­tyy for­ever:

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

You’re You’re­mum mum to an adorable two-and-halftwo-and- hal­fyear-oldyear- old boy, Ti­tan. What’s been one of the most chal­leng­ingchal­len­gin things about moth­er­hood for you? Right af­ter I had my son I just felt like a mum and I promised promised­my­selfmy­self I nev­ern­eve wanted to just feel like a mum. I Iwanted wanted to re­mem­ber my­self and my fun and who I was be­fore I had my baby. It’sIt im­por­tant for mums to re­mem­ber who they a are.
