Over the course of the night, we’ll be refreshing this article with our take on more and more of the show’s big performers. With that in mind, the advice that we’ve got for you is rather simple — stay tuned! We’re going to have a number of updates.

Eden Kavanagh – Why didn’t this get a chair turn? This was a big, show-stopping number — it was even a throwback from Smash! While she didn’t hit every note, there was a ton of versatility here. We don’t know if she could be mainstream pop, but she had Broadway / West End all over her. No chair turn.

Callum Butterworth – We actually think that Eden may be a stronger singer than Eden right now, but he’s young and he does have a lot of room to grow. He also performed music that was super-modern and there’s something about him that is almost-instantly likable. We’re not shocked that he is now a member of Team Olly.

Stefan Mahendra and Brown Sugar – Stefan came to the show with his band, and they actually joined him on stage to perform a second song! We like that he’s got some musicality to him, and that he actually seems confident already and like he’s not going to need any training fundamentals. He went with Olly as a coach, and that makes sense given that the dude basically gave him an opportunity to open some of his shoes.

Robin Martin and Jack Morlen – These two guys went one right after another and neither got a chair turn! Robin’s failure wasn’t a surprise, given that the pet-store owner just didn’t have the range. Meanwhile, we were a little bit shocked about Jack given that he had the experience and the skill set to be potentially rather good at this. It just didn’t work out.

Ilianna – She goes by one name! Hey, she’s got the stage persona thing going for her. She’s also got a really solid voice and seems like she can do a lot of really good things with it. We like her talent, and in between her style and her dancing, she’s a perfect fit for Team will.i.am — she’s definitely the sort of performer who could be successful in 2019.

Craig Forsyth – First of all, Craig gets all the credit in the world for performing to “Impossible Dream,” given that this is far from the easiest song in the world to do live. He tackled it with a lot of vocal power and brought some great stuff to it! He also gives Jennifer Hudson something that she’s been wanting for a while — a guy on her team.

Bethzienna Williams – Technically, Beth is on Team Jennifer, but the moment that she’s probably going to be more memorable than her actual performance was getting to sing with Sir Tom Jones after the fact. It’s easy to tell why this performance mattered a lot to her — she’s from Wales! It’s the hotbed of Tom Jones fans everywhere.

Roger Samuels – He’s our final performer of the night and he’s got himself an incredible voice — he’s a pastor, so clearly he’s got experience being in front of people. (Who wants to bet that this guy’s church is all sorts of incredible?) The dude had a choice between Tom and Jennifer for his coach. He could’ve done well with either party, but he opted for Sir Tom in the end.
