PS: What does star quality look like to you?
KR: Star quality [long pause] is humble . . . but confident. Star quality is . . . excited about the moment. Star quality is effortless. Star quality is goosebumps. Star quality is enjoying watching someone, because you see them enjoying themselves.
PS: What can you tell us about the other three coaches, Seal, Delta Goodrem and Boy George?
KR: I can tell you, everybody is almost going to be sick of me and Delta's lovefest, so I'm going to start some sh*t myself!
PS: It's nice! There's always that narrative in the media about the women fighting behind the scenes.
KR: I'm a feminist at heart but I truly think that she's just an incredible person, just across the board. It's not even just about her talent — her talent is remarkable, that girl's voice is just . . . I could listen to it all day, it's fantastic. And the fact that she's beautiful, I just want to dress her up and play paper dolls, but also her heart is in it here, which is why she's been here for six years. Her heart is in it. There have been artists that come on and she's like, "I remember you from such and such on this season," and I'm like, "How the hell do you remember all of that straight away?" It's because she's dedicated. With Seal, he's very in tune with people spiritually, you know what I mean? And George is like, "Look guys, you're great, you're great, you I'm not so sure, you're great, no, no, no." He cuts right to the chase and I really respect that about him. It's been awesome to be up here with them.
