The Voice UK: Watch Michelle John wow at the blind auditions with 'It's A Man’s World'

Michelle John

Michelle John is one of the standout acts on The Voice UK 2017 tonight.

In a preview clip from Saturday night's second show we meet Michelle who performs It’s A Man’s World by James Brown.

Michelle is 43 and from Bromley in London - but the coaches don't know that.

Hitting all sorts of notes, Michelle's coaches prompts an immediate reaction on the panel but will any of the judges be impressed enough to press their buttons?

Backstage, her friends and family are certainly encouraging someone to turn around.

Michelle and all the other auditionees on The Voice UK this weekend have just the 90 seconds to persuade the coaches to turn for them with only their voice in order to make it into the battle stages.

Or could Charlie be the next unfortunate victim of a new "brutal" twist in the blind auditions? This year if no coaches turn then they stay facing away from the stage, as the unlucky act walks off without ever seeing or speaking to them.

As for coaches this year's hopefuls will have to impress, ITV have undone the BBC's controversial work to bring back Sir Tom Jones to the show alongside Will.i.am and two new names: American singer Jennifer Hudson and British rocker Gavin Rossdale, lead singer of Bush.

After week one, Team Gavin and Team Jennifer have two acts apiece while Team Tom and Team Will each have one act, leaving plenty of spaces to fill up.

Each of the four coaches is looking for ten talented acts to make it into the battle rounds.

The Voice UK 2017 continues this Saturday night, January 14 on ITV from 8PM.
