The Voice UK an "amazing" experience, says Ben Kelly

The Voice UK - Ben Kelly

The Voice UK hopeful Ben Kelly has said that the show is by far the biggest challenge he's taken on in his career, adding that it was "amazing" to audition for the show's coaches.

22-year-old Ben will be seen on tonight's opening show hoping to win over the likes of Sir Tom Jones and Will.i.am with a cover of Elton John hit Rocket Man.

He told The Newsletter this week: “Knowing who the judges were, it was just amazing going out there to sing,

"This is definitely the biggest thing I’ve ever done.”

The show, which starts tonight on BBC One, sees the coaches only being able to judge an artist on his or her voice before being able to make a decision whether or not they want them in their team.

As well as Sir Tom and Will, Jessie J and The Script's Danny O'Donoghue complete the line up of coaches, and all of them have impressed Ben.

He added: “Tom Jones has the voice as he’s told us quite a few times on the show! But I see a lot of my own style and artistic approach in Jessie and Will.i.am."

The Voice UK starts on BBC One tonight at 7PM.
