The ratings will go down with out me: Voice star

LOUISE Van Veenendaal may have only spent a few weeks on television, but the woman dubbed Voice Lady by mentor will.i.am predicts her absence will be felt.

"They're going to miss me, ratings are going to go down," Louise said with a laugh.

"Boy was that fun. Didn't I cause a stir?"

Louise, 27, was eliminated after the second round of The Voice showdowns on Monday night and is back on the Sunshine Coast considering her next move.

"I'm waiting to see what door opens for me and what opportunities come up," she said.

"People all over the world are calling me.'' 

Louise is also toying with the idea of starting her own touring show.

"I want to show people a really good time and create a new area of theatre and fun and also make it a whole night out. That's the plan for now - world domination," she said.

Given the cyber bullying onslaught after Louise's battle round performance a few weeks ago, she wasn't sure what to expect after her time on the show.

"I was worried about what was going on," she said.

"But people were messaging me saying I completely turned them around and they now love me.

"Even though I've done lots of performing I've never been exposed in the media. It was great to see people embrace me and have fun with it and see me for who I am and if they don't like me, fine.''

"People all over the world are calling me.'' 

 

Louise visited Matthew Flinders Anglican College yesterday to share her story about the dark side of cyber bullying.

She said that unlike many facing cyber bullies, she had lots of supporters, family and friends to keep her strong.

She warned students that posting hurtful comments online could catch up with them in the future.
