The Voice 2015 judges: Rita Ora "so upset" after being left with no acts

Rita Ora has been left "so upset" after losing all of her acts on The Voice 2015.

The newbie coach is the first in The Voice UK history to not have a contestant competing in the final after her two remaining singers bowed out last weekend.

Welsh performers Joe Woolford and Karis Thomas both got the boot, controversially so.

Karis' performance in particular proved quite the hit at the weekend and has in fact been the most watched since Saturday night online.

But it was viewer votes from those who bothered to pick up the phone alone that decided the top four acts and it's left Rita with no team going into Saturday night's final.

"She was so upset," host Emma Willis revealed. "They [Karis and Joe] were absolutely brilliant."

Rita's fellow coach Ricky Wilson added: "She wasn't upset in an ego way, it was for them [the acts].

"She's a really warm person and genuine, she made a connection with these two guys and then they've got to go."

While Rita's got no one in the final, Ricky has the two singers with both Stevie McCrorie and Emmanuel Nwamadi going head to head to be crowned The Voice 2015 winner.

Their mentor Ricky vowed there was no favouritism from him, saying: "I'm preparing them both to win it."

Also in the final are Team Will's Lucy O'Byrne and Team Tom's Sasha Simone.

The live show starts Saturday night at 7PM on BBC One.
