Ayat Shaikh Auditions For ‘The Voice India Kids’
Ayat arrived to auditions wearing a frilly pink dress and a matching hair clip. Host Sugandha Mishra told her she looked like a princess before she stepped onto the stage for her blind audition.
The young singer showed off a sweet singing voice that clearly warmed the coaches’ hearts. Neeti Mohan and Shekhar Ravjiani hit their buttons to turn around. Shaan stayed facing the other way, even though he was clearly charmed by the performance.
As soon as Ayat finished the performance, Neeti approached the stage to say hello to her. She questioned if Ayat was real, pinching her arm to make sure. She pointed out that their dresses were matching. Shekhar, meanwhile, told Ayat, “I’m in love with you!”
