The Voice UK

Series 7 - Episode 5



This show might not draw such salacious headlines or attention-grabbing acts as The X Factor, but it is pulling in the viewers. Whereas Simon Cowell’s darling was struggling in the ratings last year, The Voice UK has so far been holding strong. Maybe it’s because of the talented singers, including this series’ oldest contestant who auditions on tonight’s show?

Or perhaps viewers enjoy seeing Olly Murs look like a bit of a plonker? A few weeks ago he was getting put in his place with a punch in the arm from Tom Jones, and last week his chair had a mechanical failure and broke down at the crucial moment. Will another mishap befall him this evening?


The Blind Auditions enter their fifth week, as, Jennifer Hudson, Olly Murs and Tom Jones reassemble to assess the singing skills of more would-be stars. Emma Willis ushers the contestants on-stage where, yet again, the coaches must decide whether they would like to back each performer based on the power of their voice, rather than their appearance. Only once a coach decides to support the singer are they permitted to turn their chair around, and any of the contestants chosen could be in with a chance of securing a recording contract with Polydor.
