The Voice 2013: Cher Lloyd and Ella Henderson offspring Katie Benbow splits coaches

Katie Benbow

Singer-songwriter Katie Benbow splits Jesse J on the voice UK 2013 this weekend.

20-year-old Katie seems to be a mash up of past X Factor contestants Cher Lloyd and last year's finalist Ella Henderson.

Speaking before her audition, Katie says: "My biggest fan when I was growing up was my grandad until unfortunately he passed away.

"I was so interested in his life and the whole 1940's era. Old music really makes me feel safe because it's been passed through from my grandad and onto my mum."

Katie, from North Wales, has her nan and family backstage supporting her as she makes the walk in silence up to the backs of panel.

On stage and Katie's unique voice and facial expressions – although unseen by the coaches – find it hard to convince the coaches to turnaround.

As Katie performs her take on Feeling Good, Jessie is seen remarking to Danny O'Donoghue and Sir Tom Jones as they remain with their backs to Katie: "So... so different. I can't tell if I like it."

We we will have two wait until Saturday night to see if Jessie or any of the other coaches presses their buzzer, but if Katie does make it through we reckon she will split audiences as well as the panel.
