Emmanuel is a serious contender, another act who has been brilliant throughout. This was absolutely amazing. His range is off the scale. From the minute he started singing, to the minute he stopped, it was faultless. 10/10
Twelve acts remain and of those, four will leave tonight. No second chances. It will be pack your bags and Bon voyage!
Team Rita and Team Will can now relax in their big red swivel chairs having picked their three acts ready for the live shows. Sunday night and the stress and pressure is now on for Team Ricky and Team Sir Tom.
No doubt like a lot of people by now, I've had a quick go at playing the two songs back to back, chucking on Gaye's Got To Give It Up followed by T&P's Blurred Lines, and vice versa. A quick go at playing judge and jury. And, well, yeah they do sound pretty similar. Tempo, the syncopated rhythm, the vocal pitch, even - arguably - the yukky sexism. But hey, what do I know?
Clark Carmody is one of the favourites for a reason, but I don't think tonight was his best showing. I know he has 'it' but the song choice wasn't right. I like him and his voice, so let's hope Rita gives him another chance.
This Saturday's epic battles are the reason the show is doing so well. World class singers, likeable coaches and enjoyable watchable TV.
First up, was toilet roll seller Vanessa Hunt, who started off slowly but very quickly got better and better. I really can't knock her vocal, it was brilliant but at this stage, it just wasn't enough for me to turn. Vanessa ended with Team Rita.
I am absolutely lost as to why, by the power of Greyskull, I watch it. I really am. The Voice UK is, without doubt, absolute toilet, and yet, somehow I've just accepted it into my life.
Bungle, I mean Paul Cullihan was hoping his audition would end with five chairs spinning, sadly there was no 'rainbow' at the end of his performance and he went home.
Jackman says he is defiantly looking into working with numerous stars including Sam Smith and is determined to work with as many talented people as possible throughout his career.
After all the comings and goings of the last few weeks, finally a moment to write properly about Bob Blakeley. Within two months of meeting him I had signed him and recorded his album Performance which is proudly released on Dramatico records on 19 May. If it's been a whirlwind for me you can imagine what it must have been for him...
When Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson announced that he would be joining 'The Voice', he divided opinions and fans of his band went scuttling in various directions, with few supporting the move. But now that the band's latest album 'Education, Education, Education And War' is sat firmly at number one, it's pretty clear who the real winner of the talent show is.
The Winner of The Voice 2014 is....Jermain. Well done Jermain, best of luck for 2014 and beyond. I will definitely be buying your debut album.
As we reach the semi-final, the pressure is really on tonight. Who will make it and who will fall just short. The remaining eight are now ready to fight it out for a prized place in next weeks grand final.
Team Will get us up and running with Jermain and far from being a load of politics, it was in fact a solid start. Good vocal, loads of woohs and note perfect. Well done mate.
The knockouts flew by this weekend and my brain was slightly a frazzle as 28 acts vied for a place in the final 12. In a format change, this year each teams seven acts were all up against each other. No fast passes or as previously groups of three, it was literally "every man for themselves".
