The Voice UK 2017 spoilers: Hopeful gets second chance at Blind Auditions after sound failure

ITV's harsh new twist meant bosses could invite her back

The Voice UK coaches

The Voice UK 2017's new twist has proven beneficial for one hopeful - who was given a second chance at the Blind Auditions after a sound failure.

The talent contest is moving to ITV for its sixth series, and a harsh rule change means that coaches who don't turn for an act will not get to see them.

Therefore, contestants rejected by all four coaches will go home without even getting to meet the star line-up.

According to the Mirror, one such hopeful was 19-year-old Kezia, who was unsuccessful with her rendition of Hozier's 'Work Song'.

However, shortly after she left the stage, producers found there had been technical difficulties with her performance.

A source told the newspaper: "Her mic was on but there were sound issues.

"Will.i.am said he hadn’t heard her properly and Tom [Jones] agreed. The crowd were very noisy that day."

Because the new twist meant the coaches hadn't seen Kezia, bosses were able to invite her back to the studio so she could repeat her audition.

The mole continued: "It simply wouldn’t have been allowed before because the judges would know what they looked like. And then it wouldn’t have just been about the voice.

"This time they had absolutely no idea who Kezia was, so she got her second chance."

Kezia made it through the second time around, but it's currently unknown whose team she has joined.

Dreamgirls star Jennifer Hudson and Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale join Will and Tom on the new panel.

ITV's first series of The Voice UK is due to kick off in early January.
