The Voice Australia highlights – Chris Sebastian

 

Chris Sebastian is none other than the younger brother of ARIA award-winning singer, Guy Sebastian! But this is a fact, though made known on the show, is something Chris is trying to work past to show that he can be an artist on his own right, without his brother. Though comparisons with Guy will no doubt arise throughout the competition, I do find his voice to be very similar to his older brother’s, only with a rougher quality.

The 23 year-old from Melbourne had the vote of confidence from both Seal and Delta after performing Beyonce’s hit single ‘Halo’. In the end, he chose Seal as his mentor, which resulted in an emotional response from Delta.

Despite auditioning for The Voice, Chris received some limited exposure last year with his single ‘Flow’ released on iTunes in June 2011. Check out the music video here:

Chris boasts an online fan base through his Facebook page, Twitter account @chrisebastian and also his official website, which looks very sleek.

His cover of Justin’s Bieber’s ‘Pray’ (below) is among many videos on his YouTube channel, chrissebastiantv.

Chris has also written some original songs, including an impressive one called ‘Mad Scientist’. Have a listen here:

And finally, here’s the performance that got him onto to Seal’s team:

He’s ugly like his brother.

That’s harsh, Georgie! It’s about the voice, remember?! :-)

Doing a Justin Bieber song. Fail.

He’s had an even bigger caning with the ugly stick than Guy, in my opinion.

Maybe Anthony, but sometimes in life you encounter people you just can’t stand the look of and Guy Sebastian is one of those people for me. I’m afraid it’s not about personality or talent, it’s the shallow end – I just don’t like his face.

I reckon when Guy Sebastian sung The Drummer Boy song at Carols by Candelight a couple of years ago in a grey suit he looked hot hot hot. But I don’t like the stupid open neck tshirts she always wears.

Izobel2, I can’t say I’ve ever heard him sing and I’ll probably go to hell for saying he’s ugly, but he can do something about those tshirts.

I’ll meet you there and show you around ,Georgie.

8 Georgie { 04.19.12 at 12:15 am }

Lol bdd – I hadn’t considered the company.

There’ll be good music there, Georgie. Satan’s house band is AC/DC.

10 Georgie { 04.19.12 at 12:58 am }

And there’ll be Jimi and Janis and Frank and Bob and Jim – in fact too many to mention. Whoo hoo, what a HOT party.

Izobel2 …. if you want to perve at Guy some more,don’t forget Guy is performing this Fri night at Thebarton Town Hall with Matt Corby and a few other acts.

12 Izobel2 { 04.19.12 at 9:33 pm }

Wow BDD, thanks for thinking of me! I live less than 1o mins from the Thebarton Town Hall. You’re a wealth of knowlege you are!
I’ve seen Matt Corby’s song on the music channel a few times, it’s a shocker.
I’ll seeya there!

13 littlepetal { 04.19.12 at 9:48 pm }

14 brain dead dave { 04.19.12 at 11:08 pm }

Don’t know if I can make that, Izobel2 –planning to rearrange my sock drawers tomorrow night.

My neighbour’s at the Michael Bolton concert tonight. She’s been pumped about it for WEEKS!

15 Georgie { 04.20.12 at 1:39 am }

Rofl bdd, have you got more than one drawer of socks?

16 lisa { 05.17.12 at 10:47 pm }

Holy crap… I cannot even stand to look at him… I know its about his voice, but damn, the blind auditions are over and everyone has to look at him now. His voice is just ok… and his face…oh my! he’s bug-eyed… likely because he looks like he’s recovering from being smashed in the face with a frying pan! I just turn the voice off when he comes on…

17 Shirley { 05.19.12 at 11:18 pm }

Guy’s fine looking but Chris is UGLY. His attitude is such a turn off too.. *smashes tv*

18 Georgie { 05.19.12 at 11:53 pm }

When you look like CS, it’s got to be all about the voice – unfortunately for him he drew the short straw there too.

19 tiffany { 09.15.12 at 7:29 pm }

20 holly { 11.04.13 at 1:30 pm }
