The first singer had a quirky voice which had much appeal but was in some ways weak. After toying with her for most of the song eventually all the judges except for Jessie J hit the I Want You button. Who would Emily settle for? After dragging the decision out she went for Danny. The judges this week a;l have limited places left and so choosing wisely will be vital unless they want to lose the competition.
It seemed to be ladies night and the next two acts went to will.i.am. Then a booming Tenor came to the stage and performed I Who Have Nothing, a Tom Jones standard. It was obvious his talent would not appeal to any judge other than Tom. However Tom seemed reluctant to take the chance. Ben finished his performance with no takers.
Indie and Pixie a girl duo were up next and Jessie J was quick to press that button. The other three judges soon followed suit. Th duo had some bum notes in their performance but obviously potential was seen. Lindsay Butler performed I Don't Wat To Talk About It. A more mature lady finally she wowed Tom Jones. The other judges may not have appreciated Lindsay but the studio audience certainly did.
Another female next up singing What's Going On? In spite of her best efforts she failed to impress. Guys being in short supply surely the next act, John James Newman would fare better? Not really. Almost reluctantly Danny went for him at the last minute and Tom followed suit. He went for Danny filling his final place.
With only a few acts left to perform it was going to be a struggle to fill the teams. Ruth a young woman with a huge Voice completed Tom's team. The last 30 minutes of the show were more of the same. The Voice UK had however saved its stand out performance for last. Jaz Ellington brought the judges to tears. Hew as however allowed to sing a second song which in some ways made it all look very staged.
Either way next week the competition proper begins. Check back then.
