The Voice UK contestant Deana wows with Amy Winehouse cover


The Voice UK 2019 contestant Deana wowed the coaches tonight with a cover of an Amy Winehouse classic.

23-year-old Deana from Liverpool appeared in this weekend’s latest round of blind auditions.

“I’ve always been a little tom boy, out with the lads, on my bike, climbing trees, getting stuck in the mud. That was me,” she said of her ‘unique’ look.

Currently working as a singing teacher at a college, Deana said: “Teaching makes me happy. I came here when I was a young kid, when I had nothing to go for. It’s my pleasure to give something back.”

Heading out on stage, Deana added: “If I got a turn off one of those coaches… words wouldn’t even describe it, I’d be buzzing. This isn’t going to your normal gig every week, it’s a big, big, big step of my life. I’m going to grab it and go and hope they turn.”

Singing a cover of Amy Winehouse hit Back to Black, Deana got more than one coach to spin with Olly Murs, Sir Tom Jones and all hitting their buzzers.

Sir Tom said: “To take on a song like that, it’s a big thing because she was such a great singer and that was such a great record. I can hear your passion in your voice, I loved the tone in your voice, that’s why I hit the button.

Olly added: “I love the way you dress and the way you are, you’ve got a great swag about you. I love it. It’s boss.” commented: “You’re someone who I’d like to hang out with, nonchalant, sing songs, write songs.”

And although she didn’t hit her buzzer, Jennifer praised: “I think you guys turned around for a star, you’re so talented and interesting and I’m so mad at myself… hopefully I can steal you down the line.”

With three coaches to choose from, it was up to Deana which team to join.

She delivered her decision: “I think I’m going to go with you, Tom.”

The Voice UK 2019 continues Saturday nights on ITV.
