Global music legends will.i.am, Meghan Trainor, Sir Tom Jones and newbie Olly Murs are this year's coaches and on a quest to uncover the best vocal talent that Britain has to offer. Once more, this year’s winner will scoop a life changing record contract.

As always, the first stage of the competition is the blind auditions which continued tonight. The contestants must hold their nerve as they sing to the backs of the coaches.

After the first four weeks, Team Tom had seven acts while Team Meghan and Olly had chosen six contestants. Team Will had five performers of his ten.

Hoping to pick up the best singing talent, if the coaches like what they hear, they hit their buzzer to spin around and select that artist for their line up. If more than one spins then it's up to the act to pick which team to join.

But if all the coaches fail to turn for an act they lose their right to see them. The act leaves stage immediately and the judges are left forever wondering if they should have hit their buttons.

Here's how the fifth round of blind auditions went down tonight...

Darci Wilders

Darci Wilders is an 18-year-old student from Strabane, Northern Ireland. She put her unique twist on Elvis Presley's iconic song I Can't Help Falling In Love With You to win herself a spot on Team Meghan.

Priscilla Cameron

31-year-old Priscilla Cameron is a singing and dancing full-time mum from Birmingham. Despite a super energetic performance of Lizzo hit Juice, none of the coaches turned for Priscilla.
