A Moroccan singer from Wisbech who appeared on The Voice has received praise from Olly Murs for being ‘super talented’ despite failing to make it through the blind auditions.
Kenza Blanka took to the stage on Saturday night’s episode of the hit ITV music show and instantly gained support on social media for her quirky trilingual rendition of Stromae’s track ‘Papaoutai’.
The 34-year-old, who was born in Wisbech but now lives in King’s Lynn, failed to get chairs to turn from music legends Olly Murs, Tom Jones, Jennifer Hudson and will.i.am.
However, popstar Olly took to Twitter after the show to express his disappointment for not spinning his seat for Kenza or fellow contestant Jack Hawitt.
“I’m gutted for Kenza and Jack as I’ve got to say both of them deserved a place, but I think we have just had to make some tough decisions,” he said.
