The Voice 2013: Cherelle Basquine can't wait to actually choose which song to sing


The Voice 2013 hopeful Cherelle Basquine has revealed she's not yet had a chance to pick her own song to sing.

The mum-of-two impressed the coaches to join Team Tom during her audition, with a dodgy performance of Cheryl Cole's Call My Name.

But Cherelle has said it wasn't her choice of song, and claimed it didn't show off her music style.

In the battles, Sir Tom chose the song as Cherelle won her battle over Elise Evans after a performance of Pixie Lott's All About Tonight.

Now in the knockouts, Cherelle will finally get the chance to do a performance her way.

"I am loving every minute of it. I preferred this to the Cheryl Cole song but it's still not something I'm really used to," she said. "I get to choose my song at the weekend so that is really going to help. I'd like to do something with a bit more soul."

The 25-year-old however admitted she wasn't too sure about her chances, saying: "You listen to the other contestants in rehearsals and it is scary, they are absolutely amazing. But I still want to win and who knows?"

Speaking to This Is Croydon, Cherelle added: "It's been amazing working with Tom Jones.

"Who else could you really hope for as a mentor but Tom Jones? He's a legend in the business."

The Voice UK continues next Saturday night on BBC One.
