Lyn's knock-out show gets her to next round on The Voice

A POWERFUL and emotional rendition of The Beatles' anthem Let It Be saw The Voice contestant Lyn Bowtell soar through to the next round.

The ex-Toowoomba country singer was up against Team Boy George members Benjamin Caldwell and Taylah Harrington in an elimination round.

However, with Ms Bowtell's beautiful performance the superstar judge picked her to stay.

"It was bitter sweet to win like that," she said.

"I didn't expect to get through because you can't ever expect it," she said.

"It's a matter of opinion and George loved what I did. It just comes down to what happens in the moment.

"There are lots of things out of my control. What I can do is always give my best and truly be in the song and in the moment."

Even with six Golden Guitar awards under her belt, the former St Ursula's College student said she still felt nervous when performing.

"It's quite a different environment - I guess at shows people are judging you in a way but you're not judged by four mega stars or have 1.9 million viewers," she laughed.

"I have to remember that it's why I went on the show - to get mainstream exposure from people who otherwise won't see me.

"As a general career trait, musicians are gamblers. This is a much bigger place to play poker."

This Sunday, The Voice's battle rounds kick off. Ms Bowtell hoped viewers got behind her.

"It's nice to get support from my hometown," she said.

"It's such a privilege to be on this show because thousands of people auditioned, then hundreds went through to the blinds (auditions).

"Now I'm in the top 24 and that in itself is something to be proud of. No matter what happens, there's only one winner."
