The Voice UK continued tonight for its third round of blind auditions of the new series – here are all the performances.
Olly Murs, Will.i.am, Anne-Marie and Sir Tom Jones return to the spinning chairs for the new series this winter.
Fronted by Emma Willis, The Voice welcomes talented soloists and duos who will compete for a record contract, as well as £50,000 and a luxury holiday.
The public will ultimately crown the winner of The Voice UK 2023 but first they must win a spot on one of the four teams at the blind auditions.
The hopefuls belt out their chosen song with a live band – but can they get the coaches to hit their buttons?
Here’s a recap of the latest round of the blind auditions…
Up first this week were Anointed Voices For Christ, aka AV4C, a family church choir from Wolverhampton who performed All My Life by K-Ci & JoJo (Stream/Download). The audition got Sir Tom to turn, securing AV4C a place on his team.
Full time touring musician Petebox was next up with his twist on Sweet Dreams (Stream/Download). The unique beat-boxing performance won over all four coaches and saw Pete choose to join Team Will.
44-year-old midwife Mariama Goodman, formerly of girl group The Honeyz performed Out Here on My Own by Irene Cara (Stream/Download) but sadly didn’t receive a spin from the coaches.
29-year-old Gwannty, originally from Nigeria and now living in Bolton, performed Essence by Wizkid (Stream/Download). This audition got Sir Tom, Olly and Anne-Marie all pressing their buzzers with Anne-Marie winning Gwannty for her team.
33-year-old mum of two Marta Spizhenko was next onto the stage, sharing her moving story of fleeing Ukraine for Rochdale. Her performance of Not About Angels by Birdy (Stream/Download) won Marta a place on Team Olly.
27-year-old Kurtis Joinson from Liverpool performed Damn Your Eyes by Etta James (Stream/Download) at his blind audition but sadly missed out on a spot on any of the teams.
The night’s penultimate performance came from 30-year-old head barista Nia Ekanem who sang Let It Be by The Beatles (Stream/Download). The audition won Nia a spot on Anne-Marie’s team after she hit her button for the Croydon-based singer and MC.
32-year-old Fatt Butcher from Birmingham was the final act of the evening. The professional drag artist performed This Woman’s Work by Kate Bush (Stream/Download) and got all four coaches to turn. Picking which team to join, Fatt Butcher went with Team Tom.
