We always feel bad for the singers who go home at the end of the blind auditions on “The Voice.” It’s fairly often that you see someone pretty great singers here, but someone has already used up all of their slots on their team and can’t pick them, even if they want to.
It’s possible that this may happen with Bronwen Lewis, who is coming on the last episode of “The Voice” UK prior to the battle rounds in hopes of trying to convince one of the coaches to turn a chair around. Despite having a pretty angelic voice and a nice, subdued arrangement to her song, no one seems particularly willing to budge at first. However, Jessie J verbalizes a “wow” upon hearing her start to sing, and this to us is really all of the proof that we need to know that she’s going to get someone to turn around for her.
With the British version of the show, we’re really not so worried at all that the blind auditions are going to do pretty well in the ratings, and be well-received by the British public. It’s all about what happens on the show after that. Last year, a good chunk of the public turned their noses up at the battle rounds, feeling as though it was boring and having little investment in the acts (and we tend to agree.) This was compounded even more by the live rounds. We wish that the show had adopted the concept of the steal that was introduced in America this past fall, since it actually helped to keep some people invested a little while longer thanks to that air of unpredictability.

Update: As it turns out, the steals will return!
