A singer from Suffolk has wowed the likes of Jason Derulo on a singing competition show. 

Charlie Pittman, from Holbrook in Suffolk, impressed the panel during his blind audition on The Voice Australia. 

He performed the Dean Lewis song How Do I Say Goodbye and Jessica Mauboy was the first judge to turn their chair around, with Guy Sebastian and Jason Derulo quickly following.

While British singer Rita Ora did not turn her chair, she couldn't resist watching and peaked a look to watch the end of Charlie's audition.

"The experience was better than I could have ever imagined," said Charlie.

Charlie chose to audition for The Voice Australia to honour a family member. 

"My late father was Australian," he explained. "It was really special and a real healing experience to honour him over there".

He first applied for the show a few months before the auditions. The process included late-night Zoom calls and interviews before the show flew Charlie out for the audition.

"I've been chipping away at the industry for the last few years but have still had to work non-music jobs just to get by."

In the end, Charlie chose Australian singer Guy Sebastian as his mentor for the competition.

The last few blind auditions will be airing in Australia soon.
