The Voice UK 2020 returned tonight for its third round of blind auditions.
Here’s a full recap of all the performances, and who got through on which team.
Global music legends will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones, Olly Murs and newcomer Meghan Trainor are this year’s coaches and on a quest to uncover the best vocal talent that Britain has to offer, with this year’s winner scooping a life changing record contract.
As always, the first stage is the blind auditions where the contestants must hold their nerve as they sing to the backs of the coaches. After the first two weeks, Team Tom and Team Meghan were leading the way with four acts apiece while Team Will and Team Olly had two on their teams of ten.
Hoping to pick up the best singing talent, if the coaches like what they hear, they hit their buzzer to spin around and select that artist for their line up. If more than one spins then it’s up to the act to pick which team to join.
But if all the coaches fail to turn for an act they lose their right to see them. The act leaves stage immediately and the judges are left forever wondering if they should have hit their buttons.
Here’s how the third round of blind auditions went down tonight…
