Following what was a pretty strong performance show on “The Voice” UK Saturday, we knew that there was at least going to be some drama in determining who some of the finalists would be. While there were a few obvious favorites (Bo Bruce), there were still some interesting battles worth watching — in particular the one between Leanne Mitchell and Ruth Brown on Sir Tom Jones’ team.
So who advanced to the final? Don’t read on if you want to avoid spoilers.
Bo Bruce (Team Danny O’Donoghue) – This was the name we all saw coming. Bo has an ethereal quality to her voice, and has to be the most distinct vocalist out of anyone left on the show. As for whether or not she actually wins, that is likely going to depend on her song choice next week more than anything else.
Vince Kidd (Team Jessie J) – Another favorite, Vince has wowed by taking major risks, being creative, and also proving to Jessie J that he is a genuine artist. Considering that Jessie has a giant army of supporters, Vince has a legitimate chance of winning this whole competition.
Leanne Mitchell (Team Tom Jones) – Leanne’s underdog story is almost complete. She originally seemed like filler in the top 20, then became a darkhorse in the top 16. After her incredible performance Saturday night, she now has to be watched and taken rather seriously by the entirety of the competition. Of course, Ruth Brown fans are still more than upset — and it just proves that the curse of going first is a dangerous one.
Tyler James (Team will.i.am) – Another stunner, in particular since we didn’t really think that Tyler’s performance of “Bohemian Rhapsody” really measured up to some of his other performances. Once again, though, this proves that voters often have a one-week attention span. Jaz was not his best this week, either, and Tyler was lucky enough to finish the show.
Do you think the British public made the right decisions, and who are you rooting for now to win the whole competition? We will have another edition of rankings for the show up leading up to the last episode later in the week.
