The Voice 2014 spoilers: Liz Oki makes Will.i.am cry!

Liz Oki (The Voice 2014)

Liz Oki gets an emotional reaction from The Voice 2014 panel on tonight's show.

The 61-year-old retired singer performs A Different Corner by George Michael for the coaches and tone of Liz's voice strikes a chord with Will.i.am.

Unfortunately for Liz, no one turns for her but Will is left in tears.

“You remind me of my aunt Stephanie and thank you, thank you for singing today," he tells her.

The singer, who has lost both his aunt and grandma in the past year, adds as he begins to sob: “I had my back turned and when you said I’m so scared, I thought of my auntie Stephanie.”

The emotion in Liz’s performance comes from a recent unfortunate event in her own life as she empathises with Will: “I think I know how you feel… I lost my mother two weeks ago.”

After her performance, Liz adds: "I was thinking about my mum out there and how pleased and proud she would be. It's very raw for me at the moment."

As the coaches prepare for the next act, Sir Tom Jones remarks: "Well that was some emotional stuff."

Speaking earlier in the show, Will.i.am said he didn't want to play games as the auditions drew to a close.

He said: "Last year I waited until the very last singer but I don't want to do that this year that's the truth."

But Ricky warns: "Will thinks he knows something we don't know. What I think Will is looking for that something that isn't there."

The Voice 2014 blind auditions air tonight from 7PM on BBC One.
