Go Team JHud! Jamie, Mo and Jack through to next round of The Voice

Jamie Miller, Mo Adeniran and Jack Bruley got the vote in Saturday night's first live knockout show and are through to the next round of The Voice.

It was Team Jennifer Hudson’s turn to shine on Saturday night as ITV’s The Voice reached the first of its live knockout shows.

Jamie Miller, Mo Adeniran and Jack Bruley got the viewer vote and won their places in the next round of the contest.

Jamie, who performed Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You, and Mo, who sang Beyonce’s Freedom, had their spaces on coach Jennifer Hudson’s team saved by the public vote, while she chose Jack from the remaining hopefuls.

Jack had given a shaky performance of the Bee Gees hit To Love Somebody which Hudson acknowledged had suffered from his nerves, but she defended her decision before announcing his name as the final act she wanted to keep.

Jennifer said: “I’ve let you all have your say. This person has been my favourite from the jump. I gotta go with Jack.”

Jennifer’s contestants were the first of the four teams to take on a knockout round.

But it was goodbye to Jennifer’s remaining team members David Jackson, Tim Gallagher and Georgie Braggins who performed for the last time in the competition on Saturday night as they were not chosen to go through to the quarter-finals.

Jamie was named the bookies’ new favourite to win the competition with odds of 3-1 at Coral. Mo, the previous top bet, dropped into second place at 7-2.

But the competition will continue to heat up on Sunday’s episode as Sir Tom Jones’s team compete to secure one of three places available in the next round.

The Voice continues on Sunday 5th March, ITV at 7:45pm.
