The Voice UK blind auditions: Episode 4 recap

Sophie Griffin - The Voice UK

After four weeks, last night The Voice UK's first ever set of Blind Auditions came to an end as nine lucky hopefuls filled the remaining spots on the coaches' teams!

Danny O'Donoghue was first to reach ten artists, with John James Newman and Emmy J Mac. Lindsay Butler and Ruth Brown completed Tom Jones' line-up, while Becky Hill and duo Indie and Pixie joined Jessie J.

Will.i.am left it to the last minute, but he had the last laugh, with standout singer Jaz Ellington joining Jenny Jones and Sophie Griffin on his team.

But with places limited, it meant some great talent was turned away.

Former West End award winner Ben Lake was amongst the hopefuls not to make the cut, as was self confessed "hippy" Harriet Whitehead.

Also failing to make the grade in the final audition shows were Daniel Walker and Chloe Blackwell, as the coaches completed their teams of ten.

For those who have made it, the hard work is just beginning.

This week they'll be put through their paces by their coaches, and will eventually go head to head with another act on their team for a place in the live shows.

Next weekend's battle rounds will see the artists fight out - musically speaking, of course - in a duet to win over their coach.

Jessie, Danny, Sir Tom and Will must made some tough choices, and whittle their teams of 10 down to just 5 each for the live finals.

The Voice UK continues on Saturday and Sunday next weekend on BBC One.
