The Voice UK 2019 hit our screens again tonight for the seventh and final round of blind auditions on ITV.
Global music legends will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson, Sir Tom Jones and Olly Murs are this year’s coaches and on the search for the best vocal talent that Britain has to offer.
For the winner is a record deal with Polydor Records but that first requires a spot on one of the coaches’ teams.
Tonight was week seven of the show and the final round of blind auditions.
Each of the coaches has been looking to build teams of ten acts for the battle rounds and the numbers of available spots have been falling each week.
Ahead of tonight’s show, Teams Olly, Jennifer and Will had just one free place each while Team Tom had only two last spaces to fill.
As always in the blind auditions the contestants had only one song to impress the coaches with their voices alone.
Sat with their backs to the contestants, if the coaches liked what they heard, they hit their buzzer to spin around and select that artist for their teams. If more than one coach turned then it was up to the act to pick which team to join.
Here’s how the final round of blind auditions played out tonight…
Who’s on The Voice UK tonight? The Voice 2019 contestants – Week 7
19-year-old Shivon Kane from London opened up The Voice 2019’s final round of blind auditions tonight. Her performance of Sings ‘Fine Line’ by Mabel & Not3s got her a well deserved spin from Team Will, winning a spot on his team and completing the Black Eyed Peas’ star’s line up.
20-year-old Amy Hawthorn from Livingston currently sings as the Legion Scotland Sweetheart. Singing on The Voice UK this weekend, unfortunately her performance of ‘Best of My Love’ by The Emotions didn’t get any of the three coaches with spots on their teams to turn.
27-year-old Philipa Akers from Milton Keynes. Philipa’s take on ‘Ain’t Nobody’ by Rufus & Chaka Khan seemed to impress the coaches but with spots tight, she became the latest contestant to unfortunately leave without a place in the battle rounds.
27-year-old Ayanam Udoma from Manchester currently works as a digital marketer where he finds himself daydreaming about singing. The self-confessed introvert gave a powerful performance of ‘Wonderwall’ by Oasis and got Sir Tom to spin around, joining the legendary Welsh singer’s team for the battle rounds.
26-year-old Kieron Smith from Liverpool is a circuit design engineer, a job which he says he loves. Admitting to having struggled with his confidence on stage, Kieron sang ‘Drops of Jupiter’ by Train for his blind audition and got Jennifer Hudson to spin around, leaving him to complete her line up for the battle rounds.
25-year-old Chloe Jones from Manchester is a waitress at a hotel, but would rather be singing for a living. Chloe performed ‘Call Me’ by Blondie at the blind auditions this weekend but unfortunately neither Tom nor Olly chose her to complete their teams.
25-year-old Ryan Simpson from West Wales vowed to give it everything he had at his blind audition. With just two places left in the battle rounds the odds were against Ryan and unfortunately he didn’t get a turn for his performance of ‘New Shoes’ by Paolo Nutini.
GGMK is a duo consisting of best friends Georgia (17) and Missy (17) from County Dublin. They are no strangers to the music industry as Missy is the daughter of Boyzone star Ronan Keating. The pair’s performance of ‘Forget You’ by CeeLo Green seemed to go down well with the coaches but there were no turns from those still with spaces.
32-year-old Rainy Hall is a mum from Essex who is hoping to follow her hopes and dreams on The Voice UK. Rainy performed ‘Run to You’ by Bryan Adams for the blind auditions but regretfully didn’t get any coach to spin.
20-year-old Lauren Hope from Blackpool is a part-time worker at ASDA but doesn’t want to be there forever. She belted out ‘Addicted to Love’ by Robert Palmer and got a spin from Olly, completing his team of ten.
Last of the acts on The Voice UK’s blind auditions for 2019 was 27-year-old Marina Simioni from London. Bringing her (supposedly) singing pug dog to her blind audition, Marina was the act to finally impress Sir Tom Jones and complete his team, singing the Sam Feldt version of ‘Show Me Love by Robin S.
The Voice UK 2019 continues next Saturday night on ITV with the first of the battle rounds.
