Recap: First episode of The Voice UK 2019

Saturday saw the debut of the highly anticipated 2019 series of The Voice UK. Sir Tom Jones was the first to secure a member on his team, and has since filled two places on his team. Saturday’s show also saw the first trio audition.

After the first week of auditions the teams look like this:

Team WILL.I.AM

Brieya May
16-year-old student from North Devon. In her blind audition she sang ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You’ by Lauryn Hill .

Team JHud

Remember Monday
Trio made up of Charlotte Steele, Holly-Ann Hull and Lauren Byrne. In their blind audition the trio sang ‘Kiss From A Rose’ by Seal.

Nicole Dennis
24-year-old from North London, currently appearing in the West End in Dreamgirls. In her blind audition she sang ‘Never Enough’ by Loren Allred.

Team Tom

Mike Platt
32-year-old firefighter from South Wales. In his blind audition he sang ‘Show Me Heaven’ by Maria McKee.

Peter Donegan
35-year-old from London, the son of British musician Lonnie Donegan. In his blind audition he sang ‘Bless The Broken Road’ by Rascal Flatts. To add to that, Tom also knew his dad as he was in the music business.

Team Olly

Molly Hocking
17-year-old Molly Hocking from St Ives in Cornwall. In her blind audition she sang ‘You Take My Breath Away’ by Eva Cassidy.

There are many more blind auditions to come, however, once they are finished, and the teams are all complete, the battles will begin. We already know that there is a lot of fierce competition and it’s going to be difficult for the coaches to make their decisions during the battles.

The battle rounds involve the coaches putting their singers into duets, however, only one will make it to the knockouts, unless another coach uses their steal, taking an artist from one of their rivals, to go onto the knockouts to compete for their team.

Which team do you think will win this year? Let us know on social media @CelebMix.
