‘First of all, lousy song choice,’ Keith joked, after Freddie finished his audition.
‘I don’t know what you were thinking… No, but thank you so much for singing that song.’
Fellow coach Jessica Mauboy, eager for Freddie to join her team, watched on as Keith took to the stage after asking the boy from Tamworth whether he could join him for a duet.
‘How do I compete with that? Seriously!’ she said.
