One week into the competition, The Voice contestant hits number 1

A 17-year-old girl taking part in this year’s Voice of Holland television talent show has hit number 1 in the charts, just one week into the competition.

Julia van der Toorn blew the judges away with her accoustic performance of Britney Spears ‘Oops I did it again’.

Van der Toorn, who admits she found the version of Spear’s song for voice and guitar on the internet, is a student at Utrecht art school.
