The Voice UK: Simon Davies wows judges with Harry Styles cover

Simon Davies was a stand out from The Voice UK 2018 blind auditions at the weekend.


It was the third round of try outs from The Voice UK’s seventh series on Saturday night.

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.

This year’s winner will scoop a life changing record contract with Polydor Records.

As always, the first stage is the blind auditions where the contestants must hold their nerve as they sing to the backs of the coaches.

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 the stage immediately and the judges are left forever wondering if they should have hit their buttons.

Saturday night saw 30-year-old Simon Davies from Birmingham go behind the backs of the coaches.

The Special Needs Teacher performed Sign of The Times by Harry Styles for his blind audition and got all four coaches to spin around.

He told them: “I’ve just been singing for a long time and I love singing and I love performing.

“I thought, I had turned 30 and wanted to give it a go.” replied: “I think you’re something spectacular. You have a gift. Now it’s up to you to decide who you would like to coach you.”

Simon said: “It’s such a privileged position. Thank you so much for turning.”


Making his decision, Simon said: “I’d be lucky to have any of you. but I’d like to choose Sir Tom.”

The Voice UK 2018 continues Saturday nights on ITV.
