‘The Voice’ Coaches Join 8-Year-Old On Stage After Amazing Disney Performance [VIDEO]
Linnea May, an eight-year-old ice skater was a bit nervous coming to her Blind Audition for the German version of The Voice Kids. Her nerves certainly disappeared when she performed a stunning rendition of “Part Of Your World” from the Disney movie The Little Mermaid.
Linnea May Sang A Disney Song During Her Blind Audition For ‘The Voice Kids’
Linnea’s magical Disney audition on The Voice Kids was a big hit with the coaches. From the first note of the song they were fascinated with her voice. Lena Meyer-Landrut and Mark Forster turned their chairs. Johannes Strate turned his chair when Linnea hit a big note at the very end. At the end of the performance, Mark dramatically fell out of his chair and bowed down to Linnea on the floor because he loved her performance so much.
“When all three judges turned around I was completely overwhelmed and shocked as I was only eight! I remember when the first judge turned around I had to force myself to keep my excitement in me for the end and keep singing! It was so crazy. I felt like I was living a dream!” she told Talent Recap exclusively.
All three coaches ran up onto the stage to give her a hug. Linnea was in disbelief. The coaches sat with Linnea on the stage and they complimented her style and ability to connect with every single person in the audience. She said that she is a lover of Disney movies and Mark said he has seen most of them because he grew up with three sisters. In an attempt to sway Linnea to pick her, Coach Lena began singing “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” from the Disney film Frozen. She ultimately chose to be on Team Lena.
In The Battles, she went up against Dave and Eleni singing “Fireflies.” The trio all really had their own shining moments throughout the performance.
Linnea advanced on to the next round of the competition where she sang “Tomorrow” from the film Annie. She was later eliminated from the competition. Her teammate Noah-Levi Korth ended up winning The Voice Kids. “Up until this day I am still so thankful for the experience I had at The Voice Kids. It taught me that if you work hard, anything can happen, and was a huge motivation for me. Now when I sing in front of big audiences I’m not as nervous as I used to be, because my time at The Voice Kids really built up my confidence” she continued.

She was one of five finalists that were chosen from a group of 70 talented kids. “When I found out how close it was and that I had almost made it, it broke my heart, but I learn from these things, and just keep writing more and more songs” she said of this experience.
Recently she has been spending a lot of time in the studio working on covers including “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
Linnea definitely has one of the most memorable Disney inspired auditions on The Voice Kids. What did you think of her Blind Audition?
