The Voice contestant Brooke Scullion is ‘heartbroken’ that her two grandmothers won’t be able to see her perform in the semi-final.
The ITV talent show is set to hit our screens tonight after it was halted in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, and it’ll be a very different show compared to when it was last on air.
Not only will Meghan Trainor be joining will.i.am, Tom Jones and Olly Murs via a video link from the United States, but the winning coach won’t be able to hug the new champion once results are announced in the final.
Semi-finalist Brooke, who has flown over from Ireland for the show, told Metro.co.uk that her two grandmothers, who have been at every live audition, won’t be able to see her perform during the semi-final because of Covid-19.
‘I’m allowed to bring three people to the show, and obviously my grannies, I’m not flying them over so they’re not going to get to see me perform for the first time ever,’ Brooke told us.
‘It breaks my heart but I just want to keep them safe and hopefully do well for them.’
The 21-year-old, who is on Team Meghan, explained that despite her coach not being there, she doesn’t think it will be a challenge for her at all.
She continued: ‘I made my connection with her and we’ve had enough time together.
‘I could have been put out in the last round and that would have been my last time ever seeing her.
‘I’m just lucky I get to see her, and and and catch up and talk to her about her baby and everything.’
Brooke, who initially wowed the judges with her Lewis Capaldi cover, went on to add that she remains optimistic about her future despite the outcome of the show.
‘I’ve just taken everything as it comes,’ she added.
‘If I get through, I get through, if I don’t, I’ve had the best time ever.
‘I just can’t wait to perform.’
We can’t wait either Brooke.
The Voice returns Saturday at 8.45pm on ITV.
