“The Voice Australia” 2016 a.k.a. “The Voice” AU Season 5 is getting closer to the end of blind auditions. Newbie coach Ronan Keating is currently in the lead with nine talents, including Kate Van Elswijk and Kayleigh Killick who both wowed the audience on the sixth night of the new season. Meanwhile, Delta Goodrem gets Crissy Ashcroft, an inspiring veteran who sang a powerful song with a very personal message.

Kate Van Elswijk, 19, is originally from New Zealand. She is visually impaired with about 10 percent vision, making her legally blind. Kate is severely intolerant of light, so she wears black contact lens to reduce the discomfort under bright lights or in daytime. Her condition is called achromatopsia, which affects about one in every 33,000 people in the US, according to

Kayleigh Killick, 27, is an English single mom to a 5-year-old daughter named Lola. She works as a cleaner in Perth, but she is originally from Buckinghamshire. Her decision to stay in Australia is mostly for Lola to stay close to her father. Kayleigh and Lola’s dad separated three years ago.

Crissy Ashcroft, 49, is a war veteran who served actively for 13 years. She suffered serious injuries in her last duty, rendering her unable to continue working in the military. She got emotional while looking back to her time in Afghanistan. Despite being diagnosed with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), Crissy is looking forward with optimism. Her war is over, she said. And she’s on “The Voice” to inspire former military personnel to pursue other things in case their service has ended, too.

Singing Cold Chisel's “When The War is Over,” Crissy won the approval of Delta Goodrem, who was glad she had no competition from the other coaches.

All the other coaches have eight talents each by the end of the sixth night of blind auditions.
