Another Saturday night means another set of The Voice UK blind auditions, so here’s your early sneak peek at tonight’s show…
First to try and win over the panel is 19-year-old mummy’s boy Jamie Johnson. The teenager’s cover of Ne-Yo’s So Sick has Kylie dancing in her chair from the get go, but can he get her pressing the buzzer?
Former Voice of Ireland hopeful Mairead Conlon is next out onto the stage, saying beforehand that she’ll give into pressure from her parents to go to college if it’s a no from the coaches. The youngster provides a “wall of sound” (says Kylie Minogue) with her take on Purple Rain.
Two similar artists are then pitched together by the show’s editors in a classic game of predict-who-will-get-through as Lewis Clay and Jimmy Weston fight it out on stage, albeit in separate auditions.
Lewis is first out, singing Areosmith hit Cryin’, while painter and decorator Jimmy plays Eagles hit Desperado.
One of the pair gets three coaches turning around while the other gets told they need to work on their “flatness” after no chairs light up.
A familiar face hits screens afterwards in the form of ex Emmerdale actress Kelsey-Beth Crossley. The former child star sings Fell In Love With A Boy for the panel, but can she make the jump from acting to singing?
55-year-old Bob Blakeley is one of this year’s oldest competitors and the experience arguably helps as he effortlessly performs Cry Me A River (Julie London version) for the panel, but will it get any of the four judges turning?
From one of the oldest artists to one of the youngest as 17-year-old “vintage fan” Sophie May Williams is next to sing to the backs of the coaches. Performing Time After Time, the teen teases out the return of Sneaky Willy!
21-year-old Miles Anthony reveals he had originally been set up to audition last year but had to back out at the last minute due to his sister becoming ill. Back for a second shot, can Miles’ performance of I (Who Have Nothing) get at least one chair spinning?
Music and politics fan Jermain Jackman could be a future British prime minster… or the next winner of The Voice UK, as long as at least one coaches press their buzzer as he sings And I’m Telling You.
The teenager from London has already made headlines for bringing communities together for his music, but it’s his Voice alone that will be judged this evening as he closes the show.
