The Voice UK continued tonight for its first set of blind auditions of the new season – here are all the performances.
Will.i.am, Olly Murs and Sir Tom Jones return to the spinning red chairs for the new series this year – with new coach Anne-Marie.
Once more hosted by Emma Willis, The Voice UK is open to talented singers who will compete for a record deal.
Viewers will ultimately crown the winner of The Voice UK but first they must win a spot on one of the four teams at the blind auditions.
The performers sing their chosen song with a live band – but can they get the coaches to hit their buttons?
Here’s a rundown of the opening round of the blind auditions…
18-year-old part time hairdresser Mariam Davina from London performed Anyone by Demi Lovato. She got Anne-Marie, Sir Tom Jones and Olly Murs to turn and chose to join Team Tom.
17-year-old Billy Beech from Grimsby performed Falling Like Stars by James Arthur but sadly didn’t get any turns from the coaches.
