The Voice UK airs tonight at 7:00pm GMT (8:00pm CEDT, 2:00pm EDT, 11:00am PDT) on ITV 1.
Tonight on The Voice UK finale, the final 3 singers vie for the Polydor recording contract.
Jamie Miller and Mo from Team Jennifer Hudson, and Into the Ark from Team Tom Jones sing one more time for UK viewer’s votes. A winner will be crowned tonight! Also, John Legend performs.
Jamie Miller – Team Jennifer Hudson – The Shape of You by Ed Sheeran – An energetic performance from Jamie. Jhud grooves along in her seat.
Into the Ark – Team Tom Jones – Hold On We’re Going Home by Drake – A good song choice for the duo. Flipping a Drake song is much closer to what these two would do in the real world.
Mo – Team Jennifer Hudson – Iron Sky by Paolo Nunio – Mo delivers another passionate performance. Great song choice. Mo for the win!
Half way through the show…the vote is frozen! But while we wait for the results, John Legend takes the stage to perform “Surefire.”
After a chat with the families out in the audience, the Top 3 are brought out on stage for results. Into the Ark advance to the Final 2! Also, Mo advances to the Final two!
The Vote is REOPENED. The Final 2 PERFORM AGAIN. Hopefully the passionate Welsh fans don’t overwhelm the votes. Although Into the Ark are a talented duo, Mo, a passionate and original vocalist deserves to win.
Into the Ark – Team Tom Jones – Not a One by The Young Wild. Not that it matters now, because the pair made it into the final two, but Tom’s song choices tonight are so much better than the soul tinged tunes (Alicia Keys, Sam and Dave) he chose for yesterday’s final.
Mo – Team Jennifer Hudson – Unsteady by X Ambassadors – The performance moves coach Jennifer to tears. These final two performances are really short, but Mo still managed to pack a punch.
AND THE WINNER OF THE VOICE IS MO FROM TEAM JENNIFER HUDSON! Jhud is in tears. Mo will go straight into the studio to cut an EP. The Final two song will be available for download.
The best singer won The Voice UK. It looks like Mo will cut a quickie record and then fall back into obscurity as every The Voice UK winner has so far. He’s actually a really talented artist and deserves a shot. But the odds aren’t in his favor. He also seems painfully shy and not the type of guy who could step up and promote himself.
Its interesting that the winners of both X Factor Australia and The Voice UK were mentored by former American Idol contestants–Adam Lambert and Jennifer Hudson, respectively. As successful artists whose careers were launched on singing shows, they’ve seen both sides. Ultimately, they’re experiences have shaped them into compassionate and committed coaches. A singing show on this side of the pond would be smart to snatch one or both up to sit on their panel.
UPDATE: I watched a choppy stream and missed it. Here’s the moment an audience member stormed the stage. Security had to intervene.
That’s it for The Voice UK 2017. See you next year?
