The Voice UK concluded it’s Battle Rounds in a tense and dramatic episode this evening and as of next Saturday, the series will be going live!
In preparation for the singing extravaganza, we thought you might like to get yourself properly acquainted with the teams and so, here are the final five Team Tom Jones acts, who will be performing this weekend.
They were all chosen from the battle duos, however they stay could be short lived, as one of the five will be eliminated in the first show. Who do you think is most at risk? Leave your comments below…
29 from Exeter
Blind Audition: He was so in demand during his audition that he started a row between the now legendary name-dropping battle between will.i.am and Sir Tom.
Battle Rounds: Adam V Denise Morgan sang ‘Use Somebody’
Adam nearly became a professional golfer before an injury changed his fortune forever. He’s been gigging regularly and around the South West for ten years and his talents have been spotted by Joss Stone’s Mum – he plays in her music venues in Exeter.
28 from Lowestoft
Blind Audition: She belted out Beyonce’s ‘If I Were A Boy’ making Danny and Tom both turn their chairs.
Battle Rounds: Leanne V Barbara Bryceland sang ‘Edge Of Glory’.
Leanne’s day job is singing at a holiday park, which she loves, but she wants to follow in the footsteps of her inspirations Beyonce and Christina Aguilera and take her music from the seaside to the big time.
Matt & Sueleen
Both 34 from Canterbury
Blind Audition: Sang ‘A Little Time’ by The Beautiful South. The folk duo impressed Sir Tom.
Battle Rounds: Matt & Sueleen V Lindsay Butler sang ‘Born To Run’
Matt and Sueleen are childhood sweethearts. They can be found gigging in their local pubs – wherever there’s a corner, they’ll probably be singing in it. They dream of travelling, playing their music around the world and appearing on Jools Holland.
20 from London
Blind Audition: Blew Tom away with her rendition of David Guetta’s ‘When Love Takes Over’
Battle Rounds: Ruth V Deniece Pearson sings ‘No One’
Ruth was brought up with music-loving parents – she’s got music in her bones. Her ideal way to relax is to write songs. She has already sung in front of the most powerful man in Britain – the Prime Minister.
20 from London
Blind Audition: Sam’s version of Adele’s ‘Set Fire To The Rain’ impressed Tom who pressed his button.
Battle Rounds: Sam V Aundrea Nyle sang ‘A Little Less Conversation’.
He’s a proud Tom Jones super-fan – the first time Sir Tom spoke to him, he burst into tears. He was refused a role in his school play as his voice “wasn’t strong enough”.
