19, and I’m from Sydney. (audience cheers) (rhythmic music) My dad wants me to follow
an academic career. But my dream’s always
been just to be a singer. (humming) In terms of Ethiopian culture, there’s kinda a stigma around being a performer or being an entertainer. – In Ethiopia, entertainment is for the lower class of people. Because in our country,
you have to go to school, get a good job, earn a good living, marry, and have children,
that’s how it is. – My mom’s Filipino, it’s
kind of the opposite. It’s very celebrated,
and if you’re a singer, you’re an entertainer, you’re amazing, and people really encourage that. It’s been really weird growing up with the two opposite sides. This is one of the first times my dad’s ever watched
me perform on a stage. And it’s very nerve-racking. My dad is the person that I
really wanna impress the most. ♪ Forever and ever,
you’ll stay in my heart ♪ ♪ And I will love you forever and ever ♪ ♪ We never will part ♪ ♪ Oh, how I love you ♪ ♪ Together, together,
that’s how we must be ♪ ♪ To live without you ♪ ♪ Would only ♪ ♪ Mean heartbreak ♪ ♪ For me ♪ (audience cheers) – I’m just sick. – [George] Well, turning was
a non-issue for me because– – Shut up! (audience laughs) – Not in this lifetime. And obviously that song is something I play in my cave all the time. It’s a beautiful song, my kind of song. It’s one of those songs
that you can’t hide behind. Because the original
has been done by so many amazing singers, and you did a superb job. – Thank you so much. (audience cheers) – Oh my God, I’m so mad. I’m really upset with myself. And it’s not just because you’re gorgeous. It’s more so the fact that
what I feel radiating from you, is that you’re down to do the work. How old are you?
– 19. – God dog it, I ain’t turn around! Ooh, me!
(George laughs) I think your voice is just budding. And you’re still getting to know it. And I think that there’s such
sweet moments in your voice. And you’re just gonna continue to grow and just get better and better. And I’m gonna bang my
head on this knob here. Have your choice, you have
two great coaches here. What you gonna choose, baby? What you gonna do? (audience exclaims) (beeping)
(suspenseful music) – I’m gonna have to go with Delta. – Thank you so much, beautiful, my girl. ♪ And all I truly believe ♪ ♪ I believe in love ♪ – I am supportive of
you, I am proud of you. – [Fasika] Thanks. – You are going to be a star. – Thank you. (fast paced strumming) – All right, let’s start these Knockouts! I chose the theme of Adele
for these three artists, because they seem to be a group who are very vulnerable,
but have strength. And they’re taking courage by being here. ♪ You told me you were ready ♪ ♪ For the big one ♪ The song that I have is an upbeat song. And I feel more comfortable
singing ballads. I just don’t know what
I’m gonna do with it. – Remember you’re trying
to create an atmosphere. You’re shifting the gear in the room. Having fun on stage is
what it’s all about. When Fasika smiles, she
lightens up the room. So, I need her to be able to loosen up. To feel the music, get in that groove, and just find the sassy and playfulness. (audience cheers) – Come on, hair. ♪ This was all you, none of it me ♪ ♪ You put your hands all over my body ♪ ♪ And told me ♪ ♪ Mm ♪ ♪ Told me you were ready ♪ ♪ For the big one, for the big jump ♪ ♪ I’ll be your last love, everlasting ♪ ♪ You and me, oh, you and me ♪ ♪ That was what you told me ♪ ♪ I’m giving you up ♪ ♪ I’ve forgiven it all ♪ ♪ You set me free, oh ♪ ♪ Send my love to your new lover ♪ ♪ Treat her better ♪ ♪ We’ve gotta let go
of all of our ghosts ♪ ♪ We both know we ain’t kids no more ♪ ♪ Send my love to your new lover ♪ ♪ Treat her better ♪ ♪ Gotta let go of all of our ghosts ♪ ♪ We both know we ain’t kids no more ♪ (audience cheers) – I’m sorry, Fasika,
you have grown so much. If she don’t take you, you are mine! (Fasika laughs)
(audience cheers) – The person I’d like to take through, is a person that I feel the amount of talent in them is
just, it’s incredible. And I really wanna be
able to work with them. (audience cheers) The person I’m choosing is… Judah.
– Judah! (audience cheers) Woo, congratulations. We have the opportunity for both Kelly and Fasika to be stolen. Coaches, you have five
seconds to hit your button. Your time starts now. (audience cheers) Yes. Kelly has saved Fasika. – [Delta] Yes! – [Sonia] Congratulations, Fasika. – What changed this last performance? Something happened, it was a shift. – I think I really tried to work on my stage presence and giving
it a lot of energy. ‘Cause sometimes I can
be a bit low energy. Something in the Knockouts just clicked. And I just got my confidence
and went out there and did it. On top of that, I’m trying
to prove something to my dad. That I’m good enough to do it. I saw him, he was dancing in the audience. – [Kelly] Aw! – Yeah, so it gave me a bit more motivation when I was on stage. – That’s awesome. – Yeah, yeah. And I think the Battles
are so competitive, and Gemma’s amazing. So I think it’s gonna be a
similar process this time. (audience cheers) ♪ There you are, yeah, you found me ♪ ♪ Strong enough to break my sleep ♪ ♪ Say it hurt, say you’re lonely ♪ ♪ Say I forgot to give you what you need ♪ ♪ But I promised you gold,

back for seconds thing. – You have this air about you, which is just a superstar. And I really do believe that. So I would take Fasika. (audience cheers) – One of the things that
really got me is the fact that you’re really starting
to believe in yourself. And you really want Australia
to believe in you as well. ♪ It doesn’t end like this ♪ ♪ I know you remember me ♪ ♪ Swear to me, yeah ♪ ♪ Swear to me you don’t ♪ ♪ Remember me, yeah ♪ ♪ In those moments just before you sleep ♪ ♪ I know you will ♪ ♪ Remember me ♪ ♪ Swear to me the memory isn’t seen ♪ ♪ Promise me, yeah ♪ ♪ That is doesn’t make your heart beat ♪ ♪ No, it doesn’t make your heart beat ♪ (audience cheers) (suspenseful music) – The person that I’ve decided
to take through to lives, is Fasika.
(audience cheers) – Fasika, congratulations. – Hi, my beauty.
– Hello. – Fasika, she’s my 20 year
old, brilliant, law student. She’s got brains, she’s got beauty, and let me tell you, this girl can sang. – To be honest, when
I watched myself back, it made me very uncomfortable. – Honey, welcome to my world. – Yeah. I’m trying to be more open,
but I really don’t know how. I’m very anxious about it. Like, I don’t like my smile. So I don’t wanna be too happy. And I try to be a bit more reserved. – It’s time that you
really believe in yourself. Just jump. Jump, Fasika, what have you got to lose? (audience cheers) (“Young Hearts Run Free” by Candi Stanton) ♪ What’s the sense in sharing

would’ve made it this far. But I think the last live show has really shown me that I do have
the ability to win. And that I do have the support

to stop uni and, you know? – Whoa. – Yeah, and do this full-time. And I told him that, and he was like, you know what, I think you should win. I feel blessed to have made it this far and to finally have that
support from my father. So I owe it to myself and to
my parents to at least try. Because I know that at the end of the day, they will be proud of me. (sniffles) Yeah, I’m gonna cut it there.

  1. nice she still needs more. training on her voice still .i know i might sound silly.she still young to grow 🙏🙏

  2. Lol the dad didn’t support at first 😭❤️now he’s her biggest fan over there bussing it down dancing

  3. DELTA saw this girl was timid did not have confidence and with out even trying she cut her out early was happy that KELLY took her she was able to lift her up and motivate her in seeing her true beauty and potential she should have chosen KELLY from the start or Boy Geaoge but one tip what I have observe anytime you come and from the beginning of your audition you shy you lack the confidence and belief in yourself you will not win those that win are those from the beginning of the audition they come boldly and they know how to handle the stage almost like they have been doing it forever example Fantasia Jordan Smith James Arthur Dalton and many more once you are going to decide you coming on those talent shows throw shyness throw lack of confidence out the door practice in front your mirror and tell yourself FAILER IS NOT AND OPTION good luck

  4. Fasika is absolutely stunning with a truly beautiful voice and I have to say Kelly is a wonderful coach and a beautiful, caring person. Really good show guys!

  5. That moment when the song means more for the contestant than the person who wrote it the way you lie always got skipped because I've never felt it she made me ball my eyes out

  6. you guys over in editing really put on a hell of a journey for each of these contestants!!! Amazing stories!!! Thankyou for you channel, gonna go binge your videos now 😂💜😂💙😂💜😂💙😂

  7. U go girl follow chase those dreams till u catch them and grip them in your hand and then never let them go because u can do it

  8. kelly is genius with the songs she picked for this beautiful talent! every turn the song was suited 100% for the circumstance and we could watch her grow with these performances! honestly wow!

  9. OKay, Kelly was THE mentor that this soul sister-in-training needed. Kickass job, Sister Kelly, you did a massive job helping this bright and beautiful jewel shine like the star she should be! If anybody hasn't picked her up, they're a damn fool!

  10. 🦋✨ Fasika is absolutely breathtaking! She is extremely talented, she’s a phenomenal singer, and you can tell she is truly and deeply passionate about the gift that The Lord has blessed her with! I can’t wait to see all that is in store for her.

  11. I just don't get how Australia didn't vote her to be the Voice. Wow, she's awesome. She can be another Diane Ross or Whiney Houston,We need more of these ladies in the music industry. Hope she gets a contract. Voice don't update the second runner ups.

  12. Oh WOW!! I have no idea how I missed this beautiful young woman and her voice! SHE HAS WHAT IT TAKES AND THEN SOME! I literally just seen this and it blew me away. Kelly R. has that ear for good sound, she seen her chance, and snatched this one up! WONDERFUL and BRILLIANT.

  13. She is a fantastic singer, but I feel like she's pulling back and not really giving it all she can. She said it herself she doesn't like being vulnerable and I think that why she's holding back.

  14. i hope i see more of Fasika in the future! i know this is two years ago but daaaaaaamn….. she is as powerful and talented as beyonce… maybe even more talented. keep on going Ethiopia'n queen 🙂

  15. She looks like SUCH A STAR in the last performance. Kelly is right. People are crazy if they don’t offer her a contract.

  16. Proven..a true filipina blood runs on her…singing from the bottom of her being..good luck young lady!

  17. Her voice is great, but there is a noticeable difference between her performance and Kelly's. With the right help she can be really big, but again, like Kelly said, she has got to be comfortable in her own skin. She is however, beautiful and sings really well.

  18. I hope this talented, gorgeous young lady is signed up by a good talent agency who will mold and help her in her future. She is very talented and gorgeous and smart…

  19. That just so me, the difference is I gave up 3 years ago, and I never had a bit of support concerning singing ever by my dad now I'm studying international relationship and law.
