The Voice UK 2013: Sneak peak at the last Blind Auditions episode

The Blind Auditions stage of The Voice UK 2013 comes to an end tonight, as the four coaches seek out only the very best acts for the remaining places on their teams.

There are only seven spots to give out, with looking for three artists and Jessie J seeking two, while Tom Jones and Danny O'Donoghue need one each.

Among the hopefuls are Adenikè Adenaike - a 23-year-old from a music-loving family - and stylist John Pritchard, who's fully aware that he can't use fashion to his advantage.

There's also 17-year-old Letitia Grant Brown, who describes music as her 'passion' and says: "If I get a turn it proves all the hard work I've been putting in is worth something."

It seems like no episode of The Voice is complete without a faded star turning up for another chance at success, and tonight's show there's not one, but two.

The first, Danny Foster shot to instant fame as a member of Hear'Say, the group formed on the 'first TV talent show' Popstars way back in 2001. He's followed by Jay Aston, who with her old band Bucks Fizz sold millions of records worldwide and won the 1981 Eurovision Song Contest for the UK performing 'Making Your Mind Up'.


Builder Brett Davison can sympathise, having had a taste of stardom himself as part of a group that supported The Saturdays and JLS on tour - until a lengthy spell in hospital prompted his bandmates to leave him behind.

But with the panel being completely unaware of their histories, will the trio manage to win any of them over?

Meanwhile, self-proclaimed 'white ginger guy from Essex' Moni Tivony's reggae-style vocals strike a chord with the coaches. "From what I've been told, I don't think my voice matches the way that I look," he comments.

Dentist Abi Sampa also has her own style, which she describes as a 'tasteful mix' of western and eastern.

Next up, 21-year-old Joseph Apostol hopes to make his family proud with his audition, after emigrating to Britain from the Philippines when he was only ten.

Bronwen Lewis, 19, attempts to impress the coaches with her own piano rendition of 'Fields Of Gold', before Adam Barron takes to the stage to sing 'Summertime'.

As the contest reaches the wire, the final two try-outs come from musician Rob Reynolds - who has spent thirty years trying to break in to the industry - and charity fundraiser CJ Edwards, who claims to take a big risk by putting his own spin on 'Dedication To My Ex'.

Tune in to BBC One at 8.05pm to find out which of the hopefuls are lucky enough to make it through to the Battle Rounds.
