The Voice UK may have just found its own version of The X Factor's Honey G.

Linda Jennings aka Linda J has gone down a storm online after her performance at the blind auditions tonight.

Many viewers were quick to link Linda to recent X Factor finalist Honey G, who was the talk of 2016.

But on The Voice UK, Linda revealed there was one big difference between her and Honey G.

While she has been in loads of bands, including a duo with her partner, and said her music styles know almost no limits, Linda told cameras she NEVER rapped.

The 49-year-old from Bolton performed The Long And Winding Road by The Beatles for her blind audition.

She said before her performance: “I would love to win this competition so I have got to do the best possible job and hit the stratosphere with this song – hit another universe”.

With a Katy Perry inspired outfit, plus her lucky shoes, Linda hit the stage with her guitar to sing the classic track and got all of Sir Tom Jones, Gavin Rossdale and Will.i.am turning, with Jennifer Hudson having already completed her team.

After the coaches made their pitches, Linda decided to join Team Tom after he revealed his link to the song she had performed.

Linda became Sir Tom's final team member as the blind auditions drew to a close this evening and all four coaches finished off their teams of ten talented singers.

The next stage is the battle rounds where the contestants will be pitted against one another in a series of musical duels.

The Voice UK airs next Saturday AND Sunday night on ITV.
