US artist Will.i.am has hailed contestant Lydia Lucy as “the full package” as The Voice intensifies its search for a new pop star.
Essex-born Lydia previously attempted to find music stardom on Simon Cowell’s The X Factor.
The 22-year-old took part in the 2013 series when the ITV hit premiered Bootcamp elimination process the six-chair challenge.
Lydia was one of the first victims of the twist on musical chairs – she lost her seat and missed out on a place in the Judges’ Houses round.
But The Voice coach will.i.am has backed her to go far in the competition. “Lydia not only sings good, I believe Lydia’s the full package,” he said on the BBC show. “She’s a powerhouse.”
Lydia could not contain her feelings after progressing from The Voice’s battles rounds. “When Will said my name, I couldn’t believe it. I was absolutely over the moon,” she said. “I couldn’t wait to thank him for believing in me.”
