Craig, Into The Ark and Nadine are still in the running to win this year's The Voice. But on Sunday night it was bad news for the rest of Team Tom's ladies.
As the Live Knockout Rounds continued on ITV’s The Voice on Sunday night, it was the turn of Team Tom to do battle for a place in the quarter final of the singing competition.
First on stage was Nadine who tried to do right by Little Mix when she performed their Top 10 single, Secret Love Song (featuring Jason Derulo). Despite a slightly wibbly-wobbly start, Sir Tom was pleased with Nadine’s performance and told her, “You did a wonderful job and I am very proud of you.”
Then it was Craig’s turn to shine. The Scotsman performed Hold On Tight which is a lesser-known track by the British singer-songwriter, Greg Holden. Craig was a bit worried not enough people would know the song. But after his performance, judge Gavin told him, “Tom chose a really good song for you. It really showcased your voice and you owned it.”
It’s hard to believe Victoria from Team Tom is just 16-years-old. The teenager gave a really confident performance when she took to the stage to sing her version of Find Me by Sigma (featuring vocals from Birdy). Victoria was worried about letting down Tom. But afterwards Will told her, “You did amazing!”
Then it was duo Capital B’s turn. The university friends duetted on the soulful ballad One Day I’ll Fly Away which was made famous by Randy Crawford in the 80s and later sung by Nicole Kidman in the movie Moulin Rouge. Will seemed to give the girls a mixed review but Jennifer told them, “That was so beautiful. You should be proud of yourselves.”
Dannii was nervous when it came time for her to sing. Things hadn’t gone very well during rehearsals earlier in the day. But Tom had faith in her as she sung False Alarm which was originally released by Matoma and Becky Hill.
“I’m nervous because I want this so badly,” Dannii told presenter Emma Willis.
Finally, dishy boy duo Into The Ark gave a lively performance of Hold On, We’re Going Home as made famous by Drake featuring the R&B group Majid Jordan. The boys were feeling buzzed after performing their own sold-out show in London in February. But would their fans give them enough votes tonight?
Once the votes had been counted, it was Craig and Into The Ark who made it through. As the live studio audience got rowdier, Sir Tom chose to save Nadine, which seemed to surprise judge Jennifer! Do you think Sir Tom made the right decision?
Sadly it was bye-bye to the rest of Sir Tom’s lovely ladies, Dannii, Victoria and Capital B. But hopefully it won’t be the last we hear from ’em.
Next weekend Team Gavin and Team Will.i.am will go head-to-head as the Live Knockout Rounds continue on The Voice, Saturday and Sunday on ITV.
