In contrast to the 'mouse' mask she was wearing, judges were fascinated with Fatimah's mature voice

Judges also pointed out that Fatimah's speaking voice sounded noticeably different from her singing voice

Her vocal coach explained that her speaking voice is lower because Mandarin is not her first language.

This is not the first time Fatimah has participated in a reality television show, as she was part of Let's Sing Kids in 2018
