The Voice UK 2018: Jamie Grey returns after getting no turns last year

The Semi Final: Jamie Grey.

Jamie Grey returned to The Voice UK in 2018 after originally getting no turns last year.

29-year-old musician Jamie Grey from Redcar had performed for the coaches last year, singing for Will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones, Jennifer Hudson and Gavin Rossdale.

But his cover of Never Ever didn't get any of the four piece spinning around, leaving him heading home.

Reflecting on his original blind audition, Jamie said in this year's episode: "I feel I put a bit too much pressure on myself because I was so desperate to get a turn, it got the better of me a bit.

"When it ended and I didn't get a turn, I was upset."

You can watch Jamie's original blind audition on The Voice UK 2017 last year above.

Returning for a second shot at the blind auditions in January, Jamie this time got the turn he was after.

This year Olly Murs is on the panel, joined by returning coaches Will, Sir Tom and Jennifer.

Of course, the coaches had no idea it was Jamie back on stage.

As always in the blind auditions, the coaches had their backs to the stage so could only base their decision to pick an act on the voice.

For his second shot on The Voice, Jamie performed Andra Day's Rise Up.

Crediting his girlfriend with encouraging him to turn, Jamie got spins from both Olly and Tom this time. Jamie joined Team Olly.

And in last Saturday's episode, he performed for a spot in the live shows at the knockout rounds.

Jamie performed a spin on George Michael's Faith that saw Olly pick him for the final semi-live show.

Joining Jamie on Team Olly is 27-year-old student Lauren Bannon from Weymouth. She performed Major Lazer's Lean On at her audition. Olly chose her as his first semi-finalist last week.

The Voice UK 2018 airs Saturday nights on ITV.

The first live show takes place next weekend before the final on April 7.
