Madden Brothers saved our Nina

IT'S been a tough couple of weeks for Stokers Siding resident Nina Baumer.

She has been busy as a Year 12 student of Wollumbin High School, still working part time at Nam Yeng Vietnamese Thai restaurant in Murwillumbah, and fighting to stay in competition in this year's The Voice Australia.

On Tuesday night, Ms Baumer, 18, faced fellow Delta team member Nicolas Duquemin, 19, from Victoria.

"Nicolas won. I lost the battle but I was fortunately saved by the Madden Brothers," she said.

After the Madden Brothers and Ricky Martin voted for Nina, and Delta and Jessie J for Nicolas, Delta Goodrem had the final decision.

"Delta decided that Nicolas needed more work and she wanted to work with him a little bit further," Ms Baumer said.

"She felt that Nicolas would benefit for a bit more coaching, but it was a very tough decision for Delta."

The decision means that Nina Baumer is now part of Team Madden.

"It's a change but the Madden Brothers turned (during her blind audition) as well, and I am glad that I am on a different team because it allows me to experience two sides of the field," she said.

"Being with Delta taught me so much, and she gave me some great tips, but now I am getting to work with the Maddens, and them having me in their minds for future recordings is a great opportunity."

Back at home, Nina Baumer is still getting used to the spotlight.

"I am trying to keep my life as normal as it as before and I really don't want to get my head stuck in the clouds," she said.

"I am still working but people ask me to sing for them at the restaurant now, and I am still going to school every day as well as working, and it's stressful and busy but it keeps me grounded".
