The Voice UK 2021 continued this evening for its second set of auditions of the new series – here are all the performances.
Will.i.am, Olly Murs and Sir Tom Jones are back in the turning chairs for the latest season this year – joined by new coach Anne-Marie.
Helmed by Emma Willis, The Voice UK 2021 is open to talented performers who are competing for a recording contract.
Viewers will ultimately vote for the champion of The Voice UK 2021 but first acts need 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 recap of tonight’s second round of the blind auditions…
42-year-old stay at home dad Joe Topping from The Wirral opened up the latest round of blind auditions with Forever Young by Bob Dylan. Olly and Tom both turned – but Olly blocked Tom meaning Joe joined Team Olly.
