The Voice UK made its return to our screens tonight, with brand new coach Olly Murs making his debut on those big red chairs.
Of course he wasn’t alone tonight; sitting beside him was Jennifer Hudson, Sir Tom Jones and the shows longest serving coach Will.i.am.
The Blind auditions kicked off and we met eight new contestants, who took to the stage. However, not everyone managed to get through to the next round…
Here’s the results from episode 1!
Jake Benson (26)
Jake is now through to the next round, and has picked Jennifer Hudson as his coach!
Chloe Jones (22)
Chloe impressed the coaches with her take on Corinne Bailey Rae’s ‘Just Like A Star’. She’s now on Tom Jones’ team!
Lauren Bannon (27)
Lauren’s performance of Major Lazer – Lean On earned her a place on Team Olly!
Niall Donnelly (36)
Although the judges praised his vocals among themselves, none of them turned for Niall.
Jimmy Balito (22)
Sadly it wasn’t meant to be for Jimmy either, and he walked off stage muttering the words “gutted” to himself.
Jason Nicholson-Porter (33)
Jason’s take on Amazing Grace left the audience adoring him, and it bagged him a place on Jennifer Hudson’s team!
RYT (Duo – Ryan and Tania)
Couple Ryan and Tania got off to a rocky start, but towards then end of their performance, they had Olly Murs in love with them! They’re through to the next round on Team Olly.
Donel Mangena (16)
Donel impressed the coaches from the very start, and even had Will.i.am making a commitment to standby him even after the show had ended! He chose Team Will over Team Jhud. Also, wasn’t his granny awesome?!
