Knockout performer: Anja Nissen, of Yarramundi, on The Voic

She's been trending on Twitter and made it to the final eight on reality TV singing competition The Voice, and now Yarramundi’s powerhouse singer Anja Nissen hopes she can knock over Team Will’s remaining duo.

‘‘It feels amazing, now that I’ve got here, I want to keep going,’’ she said.

‘‘It’s been a really surreal experience. But it’s hard, the duos are such a package.’’

This time last year Anja Nissen was preparing for her HSC trials at Winmalee High School.

Now the 18-year-old singer is recognised by over-excited young girls taking selfies with her in shopping centres when on days off from iTunes recordings, wardrobe checks, rehearsals with the band, stage changes and meetings with her Voice coach, Grammy-award-winner will.i.am.

On Monday night it was confirmed she would tour Australia with the final seven remaining acts on the popular TV show, which regularly attracts two million Australian viewers.
