‘The Voice UK’ review: Jolan, Mia Sylvester return; Scott & Vicki perform

VoiceTonight, “The Voice UK” is continuing the blind auditions once more, which reminds us of just how bizarre the BBC is in their production schedule for this show. For one reason or another, we tend to get a lot of these shows and very little in the way of live shows, which is probably one of the reasons why there aren’t exactly many stars who come out of this show.

We’re going to be updating this article live as the show continues; stay tuned for more!

Mia Sylvester – She’s back! The singing electrician got a chance to come back on the show this year, and did so at a time when there weren’t so many teams that were completely filled this time. She’s got a solid voice, and more than that we think people will like her and root for her.

Scott & Vicki – We like them! They’re really fun, have good voices, and we always like to root for duos on this show given how much it is dominated by and large by solo acts. Also, these two further cemented a pet peeve of ours: If the coaches are dancing and carrying on, they really don’t have any intention of pushing their button. They’re just hamming it up. Team Will.

Eli Cripps – Apparently, there is some sort of resistance at the moment to coaches all pressing their button for the same person. She’s got an interesting voice; she’s a little lacking when it comes to range, but she emoted really well and we feel like that is what attracted her coach to her. Team George.

JJ Soulx – She’s super-talented, and not just because of her singing. She can also rap! She’s got a knack for turning things around when it comes to songs, and that makes her one of the people we’re excited to see again. Team Paloma.

Theo Llewellyn – Given what Paloma said about hard workers, we feel like she’s really going to like working with Theo this season. While we don’t necessarily think that he has a perfect voice by any stretch of the imagination, we saw enough in here to make us believe pretty strongly that he is someone with potential to improve. Team Paloma.

Jordan Gray – The only no-chair turn to us worthy of discussion. Yes, she does have a great story being transgender, but what impressed us the most was the emotional quality in her voice. We would’ve turned, really beyond a doubt.

Rick Snowdon – This one was a bit of a surprise, since we had “Ricky” written all over him the moment that he busted out that rock voice. However, he said something interesting at the end of his decision-making, making it clear that he wants to try something a little bit different performance-wise after doing his thing in rock for so long. Team Paloma.

Jolan – Great singer, and significantly improved from two years ago. What was somewhat hilarious is that neither George nor Paloma caught on the fact that he was a really low-key guy the entire time they were pitching to him. Ricky went more for a straightforward approach, and that is clearly what ended up working. Team Ricky.
