Opera singer Shansel Huseyin makes her bid for fame on The Voice UK! (VIDEO)
As we previously reported, Shansel Huseyin is set to bring a touch of opera to the stage on The Voice and we have just been informed that the singer’s audition will be aired on tomorrow night’s episode of the BBC show.
The brunette beauty previously tried, but was rejected from britain’s Got Talent, so she decided to try her luck at the blind auditions for the b=new BBC series and on Saturday, we will discover if her classical tones are good enough to impress celebrity coaches Jessie J, Danny O’Donoghue, Tom Jones or Will.i.am.
Before taking to the stage, the Essex singer admits to the show presenters Reggie and Holly that she only realised she could sing a few years ago, when she tried mimicking an opera singer on TV.
Although she has had no formal training, Shansel Huseyin does perform as part of Southgate Opera company and her dulcet tones won her a place in the grand finals of Essex Got Talent in 2010.
While Shansel may have tried her luck on BGT before, tomorrow night’s episode of The Voice will feature a few familiar X Factor faces too.
Scary looking singer Vince Kidd (aka Matthew Protheroe) once sang in boyband Futureproof and even reached the X Factor live shows a few years ago.
Amy Winehouse’s former backing singer Heshima Thompson – who has reached X Factor bootcamp on two occasions – will also show up on BBC One this weekend, as will Scottish granny Barbara Bryceland, who reached bootcamp in 2007 but failed to make the live shows.
The Voice continues at 7PM tomorrow night. Will you be tuning in?
