A 14-year-old contestant on ‘The Voice’ receives the fastest chair turn.

“A 14-year-old singer named Jade De Rijcke dazzled the panel of judges on ‘The Voice Kids Belgium’ before ultimately clinching the title of overall champion for the 2018 tournament.

De Rijcke, under the guidance of her coach Gers Pardoel, achieved impressive victories throughout the contest. Pardoel, in his debut season as a coach in 2018, propelled De Rijcke and his other vocalists to victory over more experienced trainers.

What many viewers may not realize is that 2018 was not De Rijcke’s first attempt on ‘The Voice Kids.’ She auditioned in 2017 but did not advance past the blind auditions. De Rijcke later attributed her initial failure to nerves and disappointment, as her audition didn’t even air on television.

However, De Rijcke refused to be discouraged by the setback. Instead, she redoubled her efforts and made a triumphant return, exceeding her own expectations. Sometimes, failure serves as the catalyst for hard work and eventual success in any endeavor.

The ‘Road to’ videos chronicle a contestant’s journey on the show, providing a retrospective of their performances. For her blind audition, De Rijcke chose to sing ‘Homesick’ by Dua Lipa, a poignant ballad about longing and separation.

In the semi-final, De Rijcke boldly tackled ‘Sober’ by Demi Lovato, a somber reflection on the singer’s struggles with alcohol. Despite the weighty themes, De Rijcke delivered the song with poise and maturity beyond her years.

Her final performance on the show was ‘Grand Piano’ by Nicki Minaj, a song exploring themes of doubt and questioning in relationships. Despite the melancholy undertones of her song choices, De Rijcke emerged triumphant over her obstacles, proving herself as a worthy champion.

This inspirational story showcases the resilience and determination of a young talent on the path to success.”
