13-year-old Filipina singer Justine Afante was hailed as the grand winner of “The Voice Kids UK 2020.”
The singer from Pixie Lott’s team bested three other contenders during the show's finale held yesterday, August 30. They were Victoria Alsina from will.i.am’s team, George Elliot from Danny Jones’ team, and Dara McNicholl from Paloma Faith’s team.
For her winning piece, Justine sang Beyonce’s “Listen" and wowed all the four coaches.
“I know how much you’ve grown. You didn’t know you could hit these notes. You’re singing notes are higher than Beyonce. You’ve had that in you all along. But now, because you are believing in yourself, and I feel so lucky that I’ve got to witness that, all those people that said you had no talent, you have just proved them 100 percent wrong,” Pixie said of Justine's performance.
Meanwhile, Justine was speechless after winning the contest. She said, "I am in so much shock. They were all so good. I didn’t think I was gonna be the winner."
