Siala Robson of The Voice forgets the lyrics to her song during an all-important performance … but she’s still making it to the finale
Despite a devastating setback in her performance on Sunday, The Voice’s Siala Robson still managed to conquer the all-important first Playoff.
The 18-year-old was halfway through David Bowie’s Fame 90 when she forgot the lyrics to the song.
After managing to recover from the blunder, coach Boy George insisted that he still had faith in the young singer and brought her to the final.

Siala starred opposite fellow competition Nathan Isaac when she visibly panicked after forgetting the words.
Siala stopped performing and stood onstage with her mouth wide open before placing a horrified hand on her forehead.
After a few tense moments, she managed to get the performance back on track, but she was apparently upset because something had happened.
At the end of her performance, a devastated Siala looked like she was on the verge of tears, despite the encouraging cheers from the live audience of the show.
And while she thought her fate was sealed with the less-than-great performance, the show’s coaches assured her that it was more important that she be able to pick herself up again.
“Siala, you’re so dope. You’re so great, don’t be down. You’re one of my favorite things I’ve ever seen, ”coach Guy Sebastian assured her.
George, 59: “These moments are all about figuring out what artist you’re going to be, how brave you will be … It’s over. You must immediately learn to recover from that stuff. ‘
After taking a moment to deliberate on his final decision, George Siala chose over Nathan to advance to the show’s finale.
He admitted that although he had “some fear” in getting the young singer through the competition, he was willing to take a leap of faith.
An emotional Siala was overjoyed to get a second chance, told George she was “so grateful” and made him emotional too.
Siala said on Sunday that she lost her concentration during the high-pressure performance.
“I couldn’t concentrate. I went out and I started singing and I wasn’t in the room, “she said.
‘I really immerse myself in what I do, what I sing and how I present it. It’s good to be emotionally invested, but it really hit me and I just had a thick wig. ‘
