The Voice 2014: Our top five moments from Episode 1

Anna McLuckie (The Voice 2014)

The Voice UK is back and Saturday night's opener was packed full of highlights from some brilliant auditions to the introduction of two new coaches.

Aussie popstar Kylie Minogue and rock band frontman Ricky Wilson both join the panel this year alongside Will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones, with the four piece kicking off the blind auditions at the weekend.

Here we've picked out our top five moments from the premiere episode of The Voice 2014, but be sure to add your own best bits in the comments below.

Anna McLuckie's amazing audition

Let's start it off with one of the best auditions of the night and arguably of The Voice UK so far. Anna McLuckie's harp cover of Daft Punk's Get Lucky worked surprisingly brilliantly, but can she repeat it in the next round?

Will v Ricky

Following on from Anna's audition was the slight rivalry that's forming between Will.i.am and Ricky Wilson. While we felt a bit sorry for Ricky missing out on Anna we couldn't help but love Will's winding up the of Kaiser Chiefs star by drumming behind him.

EVERYTHING KYLIE DID

Kylie has provided a much needed dose of fun to the previously over the top serious show leaving us already to declare we're Team Kylie!

Everything about Tara Lewis' audition except the actual singing bit

Oh Tara, Tara, Tara. The confused Welsh singer (of sorts) seemed to think The Voice UK was not a singing contest but rather an opportunity for budding impressionists. Unfortunately for her, we feel 'Welsh Characters from Axed BBC Sitcoms' is a bit too small of a niche to make it to the big time.

Beth McCarthy's Sexy And I Know It cover

Move over Nicholas McDonald, there's another 16-year-old reality telly wannabe: Let's end on a high with Beth McCarthy's Sexy And I Know It cover. The teenager won a spot on Team Ricky with her spin on the LMFAO track and only mentioned her age to the coaches once. Take note, X Factor.
