The Voice Kids judges emotional over Tiara-Leigh’s performance

Tiara-Leigh, 13, from Liverpool, was one of the youngsters showing off their amazing music skills last night.

It’s so important for me to sing in front of my grandad.

“My biggest fan is my grandad. He always cries when I sing, but he pretends not to,” Tiara said in a pre-performance interview. Meanwhile, her family gushed over their relationship, with her mum saying: “The love and the bond they have together is unbreakable, honestly. It’s lovely.”

She added: “Grandad is not well with his Alzheimer’s. The one thing we hope he never forgets is Tiara’s singing.” The youngster then said: “It’s so important for me to sing in front of my grandad, it’s like the most important thing in the world.”

Taking to The Voice Kids stage to sing her heart out, Tiara didn’t disappoint. The youngster put on an emotional performance of Somewhere Over The Rainbow – with her grandad watching on.

With tears filling up in her eyes, pregnant Pixie Lott soon slammed the famous button – bagging Tiara a place on her team.

After the performance she was asked if she sang that song for anyone. To which she replied: “My grandad.” The crowd then cheered as the judges became emotional, with Pixie shouting over to her grandad: “Are you proud?” and her grandfather nodded.
