So, that’s a wrap on the blind auditions then. Each
judge (whoops, no that’s the other show) coach has 10 acts on their team but only 5 will go through to the Live Shows.
Next week, The Battles commence where the coaches will have to pit two of their own acts against each other in a duet before deciding which one to
send home (whoops, no that’s the other show) put through to the Live Shows.
Danny was first to complete his team of 10 when he secured Emmy J Mac and John James Newman. Looking back at his team now, they all look a bit samey. The only one I really remember is Max Milner who performed the Lose Yourself mash-up in week 1 and Bo Bruce who stood out because I remember thinking how odd it sounded to hear someone with quite a plummy accent say ‘wicked’.
I really enjoyed Becky Hill’s version of Ordinary People but she really annoys me. I think she needs to tone down the teenage stroppy act before the next round.
I was sure she would team up with will.i.am, who is my new favourite coach by the way (sorry, Tom), but I bet Will was relieved that she did go with Jessie J when he was the only coach left with a spot on his team when the awesome Jaz Ellington came out.
I was not aware that Will actually wrote Ordinary People and I loved it when he told us the story of why he wrote it and who for. I am a sucker for those tiny little bits of personal information.
To then watch him tear up when Jaz performed his own version was so moving. I wish I’d known more about will.i.am when the show first started – I think his instincts are incredible and he trusted his gut and was right to. Gotta love that.
It was unclear if Jaz was actually the last person to perform in the Blind Auditions, or if a waiting room full of singers were sent home when he clinched the last remaining place.
I’m not sure why so many people took to google to ask: is will.i.am gay? But, I know that you did because this blog turned up in your search results?! I could not fathom out why this would be, but saw that a commenter had asked the same question on a previous post. So, if the reason you are visiting this blog is to find out if will.i.am is gay or not – I have no idea. But, feel free to stick around for stories on toddlers, potty training, working mother guilt and wine.
I’m still really enjoying the show. I hope it continues to hold my interest all the way to the Live Shows as this is probably the only one of ‘my’ shows that the Greek God(zilla) will actually sit down and watch with me.
What are your views on The Voice? Are you looking forward to the next stage or was it the Blind Auditions format that kept you tuning in?
