The Voice UK: Amy Winehouse's pal Tyler James auditions

Tyler James (The Voice UK)

Pal of the late Amy Winehouse Tyler James will be seen performing for The Voice UK coaches this week.

The 30-year-old will be hoping that either Jessie J, Sir Tom Jones, Danny O'Donoghue or will press their buzzer and turn around in his blind audition.

The London based singer had been friends with Amy since they met as teenagers, with Tyler describing their relationship as being "two halves of the same person".

Recalling Amy's death last year, [tag]Tyler James[/tag] described it as the "worst day of his life".

This weekend will be Tyler's chance to do Amy proud, performing for the panel in a bid to make it to the battle rounds later this month.

Tune into The Voice UK at 7PM on BBC One to see if he's successful!

Amongst the other budding performers set to appear this weekend are former X Factor hopeful Joelle Moses, 'Aristocrat singer' Bo Bruce, teenager Kate Read and former MOBO winner Allyson Brown.
