Growing up with certain traits leads to insecurities. People's perception of said traits might turn positive over the years, but the trauma that comes with years of bullying never fades away. This certainly applies to people with unique voices, but thankfully, 'Alter Ego' celebrates just that. As per the show's logline, it is a "singing competition where contestants reinvent themselves and perform like never before -- as their dream avatar."

For Kyara Tetreault, a 28-year-old singer from Toronto, Canada, growing up with a deep voice was not easy. Seeing that she was frequently bullied for not sounding like other girls, she lacked confidence while growing up. She was often misgendered as well, due to the same reason. Tetreault has come a long way since then and now, she hopes to explore her talent through her avatar, Seven. To her, Seven allows her to explore characteristics she hopes to step into. Tetreault performed 'Take Me to Church' by Hozier and you can watch her performance here -- "Seven's performance has us saying AMEN!  #AlterEgoFOX"

The judges were blown away by her amazing talent, with Grimes even noting that she has a 'super original voice'. Although Grimes was the only to vote for her to take Dipper Scott's place on the Diamond, the audience came through and voted her safe along with fellow contestant, Queen Dynamite. This meant that she would now advance to the next round. Twitter couldn't stop gushing about her stunning voice as well.
