Pal of the late Amy Winehouse, Tyler James is set to perform for The Voice UK coaches on tonight's latest audition show.
Tyler, who trained with Amy at the Sylvia Young stage school in north London, went to both get their own record deals, with vastly different degrees of success.
Now Tyler hopes that The Voice will give him a second chance.
He says on tonight's show: “She’s here with me, I know that, but it’s about me finding my own feet.
"And the only way I’m ever going to find that is through music, through singing.”
He reveals: “This competition is about me building up my confidence for myself — it is very important to me, very.
“There’s a lot riding on this.”
Will any of the coaches press their buzzers?
