Watch the Voice UK coaches perform George Michael’s Freedom

Sir Tom Jones,, Jennifer Hudson and Gavin Rossdale opened Saturday night's final with a tribute to the late singer


The first half of the two-part Voice UK final kicked off on Saturday night with a tribute to the late, great George Michael.


Coaches Sir Tom Jones,, Jennifer Hudson and Gavin Rossdale performed his classic hit Freedom! 90 and – hey – it was a pretty enjoyable effort, with Sir Tom and J-Hud in particular really belting it out…

Sure, one or two people had questions about Gavin’s moves but given that we’re prone to a bit of dad dancing ourselves, and have been known to get over-excited on the dancefloor, we certainly won’t be passing judgement.

All in all, it was an entertaining way to open the final – which concludes on Sunday night with the crowning of the winner – and a nice hat tip to George, who was laid to rest last week, and whose original version will, of course, never be bettered…


The Voice final concludes on Sunday at 7pm on ITV
