The Voice 2018 RECAP! All of the blind auditions from week five

The Voice UK 2018 auditions

The Voice UK 2018 returned tonight for its fifth round of blind auditions.


Here’s a full recap of all the performances, and who got through on which team.

Global music legends, Jennifer Hudson, Sir Tom Jones and newbie Olly Murs are this year’s coaches and on a quest to uncover the best vocal talent that Britain has to offer. Once more, this year’s winner scooping a life changing record contract with Polydor Records.

As always, the first stage of the competition is the blind auditions which continued tonight. The contestants must hold their nerve as they sing to the backs of the coaches.

After the first four weeks, Team Olly had seven acts while Team Tom and Will had chosen six contestants. Team JHad had five performers of her ten.

Hoping to pick up the best singing talent, if the coaches like what they hear, they hit their buzzer to spin around and select that artist for their line up. If more than one spins then it’s up to the act to pick which team to join.


But if all the coaches fail to turn for an act they lose their right to see them. The act leaves stage immediately and the judges are left forever wondering if they should have hit their buttons.

Here’s how the fifth round of blind auditions went down tonight…
