Teen girl sings Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” on The Voice and gets four chair turns

July 16th, 2019

“The Voice” is a popular singing competition where singers participate in blind auditions. If a judge likes a singer, they turn their chair around to see what they look like. The singer then gets to choose which judge’s team they want to be on.

This TV series began in Holland, but there are now spin-off series all over the world, including in the United States, Spain, China, Brazil, and France.

In 2017, an audition from “The Voice France” went viral. This audition featured a teenage girl named Lou Mai singing an incredible rendition of “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

All four judges ended up turning their chairs around at the exact same time! The judges all laughed when they realized they had turned around together.
