The Voice UK spoilers: Laverne Scott-Roberts moves on from X Factor knockback

Leverne Scott-Roberts (The Voice 2014)

Laverne Scott-Roberts goes before the panel on The Voice 2014 tonight.

The 31-year-old previously had a development deal as part of a girlband aged 18 but becoming a mother put her career on hold.

Now a single mum to four young boys, Laverne tells the cameras that she has no time for singing and claims "I'm doing this to show my children that no dream should be too big. Today is the first time in ten years that I've stepped out on a stage."

However Laverne auditioned for The X Factor just two years ago, singing for a panel made up of Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland, Tulisa and Louis Walsh in Manchester.

Laverne's audition never made it to the air after she didn't make it through to the finals, with Tulisa criticising her for not "connecting with the audience."

The knockback seems to have hit Laverne's confidence as she admits to doubting herself and her vocals.

Singing Explosions by Ellie Goulding it's hard to see why she was rejected by The X Factor judges with The Voice UK panel more than impressed by the talent on display.
