Olly and Tom turned simultaneously…for the pitch road. Olly loved the style and he praised them. Tom gets called out for rocking the green velvet. He called them sounding like the Andrew Sisters, and sound great.

They chose Olly…he did not expect that! The velvet did not shine, they wanted to be more contemporary…the Andrew Sisters may have persuaded their decision.

Jennifer Jamieson – 26-year-old  from Glasgow employed as a singing waitress. She whips out her mic and sings at your wedding event…laughs a lot, music and wanting to be a singer, moved to London. Auditions, being cut and was destroyed, today is make or break. Rejection has its own challenges. This would change her life and acceptance for being herself. No turns. WTF damn lots of boos from the crowd, bring her back chants. Buyer’s remorse. What can she do! Hey Jennifer, you did very well! Do not give up!

Sean Connelly – 30-year-old insurance renewals advisor from Essex. He wants to provide for his family and talks about his four-year-old daughter. He wants to show her his best! He claims to be the best dad singer in the shower! And he wants a chair to turn. Lots of inspirational moments from his daughter cheering on. If you can see the backstory, please find it. Tom was thinking about it early and waited to the end to hit his button. Tom loved the way he sang.

Default to Sir Tom. 

Gevanni Hutton – 17-year-old student was the final act of the night. He moved to England to live with his dad moving from Jamaica and being away from home to give her a better life. The father encourages him to do his best. This is a mind-blowing opportunity to change his life forever! An angelic voice tone! He was below several notes likely the nerves kicking in…Will! His dad runs on to the stage.

Will be a default win. Will speaks to his father’s moment on stage, and not everyone has a dad in life. More emotional moments as the panel talks about his inspiration.

Four chair turn winners. Meghan pitches living growing up with the style of music, she called her amazing. Will asked the potential coach, she shared that she pre chose will…before the show. Then will.i.am sold Meghan. Tom called out his reverse approach, Tom wants to bring the best out of her. Olly called it was a fantastic job in the audition. He relates to going from a low job to being famous.

Blaize chose…Meghan!

Ty Lewis is 18 years of age, he looks 12…”

He received a two-chair turn.

Olly called that version was moving and he had to turn. Tom did not know the song title either, but he told Olly he should! He loved what he did. Olly called him amazing…and liked the kid.

He chose Olly!

Tom performed a rendition of Leave Your Hat On for the audience…the perfect stripper song…sorry kids… (subs it for a nonsense adult song).

Babalola Ehidiamen A dad who currently works in a fast-food restaurant… He is 25 years of age…leaving a legacy for his son to watch a video of this performance would be a highlight for him. No change came for him. No turns. Tom did not like the unnatural voice…something not quite there. Will did not like it either.

Baby Sol is 36 years of age, a jack of all trades name-dropped Paloma Faith’s name… She sang Lullaby of Birdland.

Episode one

The opening episode will feature a special group performance from the coaches as they sing a cover of Kiki Dee’s I Got The Music In Me.

Each coach needs 10 acts for the next stages – the battle rounds

Brooke Scullion from Derry Northern Ireland, family-supporting her challenge…expect her to go far as she is the opening act of the season. 90 seconds to change a life…no doubt she will move on, Meghan went first…expect the other three to join in! OMG, a new shining star! Thank you, producers, for starting this season off with the best! What a great personality and tone…Tom waited to hear her more… four chairs turn well deserved. Meghan used the female card and out comes the other cards…outcomes the grammy. Will just wants to work with her. Brooke went with Meghan and just launched herself into the live shows. STAR!

Will added he believes this is the first time a new coach has won the first four-chair on the series. Indeed.

Adam Howarth, this is his last big chance (his words)…with a guitar in hand, and Olly picks the song as an original! His partner said he missed that note…and no turns from the panel. He went for the big note. Guttered. His voice cracked because he was nervous, back to plan B. Only ten can go through and the coaches all feel for them.

Trio group… So Diva –  Jenny, Tania, and Danni old school soul singers, together for six years now, but have not broken into a full-time gig. Sisters and best friends, this is their big test, ready for change and it is all on stage now. Who wants a trio? Will jumped to his feet…Tom hit his button first because he could not resist their harmonies, then will.i.am joined in at the end. Tom is now a believer! Lots of personalities…” you blend” according to Tom. The sisters chose will.i.am…

 

Francisco Iannuzzi, his dream has been to be a performer as a mission with many no along the way. Is this his turning point?

No turns. Rejection hurts.

Lara George from Sussex, Olly looked up to her as a singer, he used to fancy her. Meghan talked about their fake relationship, Tom loved her tone. She won three turns…Olly, Meghan, and Tom. Olly tried to defer the pitching to the others then withdraw it by saying she could pick him. All good pitches.

She chose Sir Tom. If she would have her…this is something she always wanted.

Trinity-Leigh Cooper from Wales, 16 years of age singer, placed in foster care and adopted at 6 years of age. Singing all her life, she wants a turn, her family is her biggest fan and thankful for the opportunity. She sang Stone Cold as her audition, with tears from her mother! Olly and Meghan wait out the final bar or note! OMG, the blinds are the best part, Olly runs to hug her, then Meghan runs to join in. Tom finds she is Welsh…and they exchange love…they both pitched well dropping Grammy and names…with will’s help.
She chose Meghan! Olly lost out again.

Meghan Trainor and the panel were talking about her start, then she mentioned her father, a gifted musician was present in the audience. He was asked to perform on the piano while the panel danced and sang along to Shake Rattle and Roll.  That was a nice moment, the chemistry of this panel is good this season.

Cameo Williams, 18 and a student lives at home with her family. Her mother is amazed at her talent from an early age, she attends college in Birmingham and busks during times. Meghan talked about how she was in really good hands…Tom and Olly both turned. Tom offered to stretch her vocals…This moment felt like this time last season when Molly chose him to go on and win.

Cameo chose Olly. Good choice Cameo! Her voice is so unique…the excitement was all over her face and indeed her family.

Shezar – final act of the episode…31 from Hackney, East London, a family of nine…all musical gospel background, where she was the lead singer. Her career has been in the background singer role, it is time for her to move up! This is the one according to Meghan.

OMG her range is huge…a finalist in the making….another four-chair turn. Meghan went first, then Tom, Olly, and will! This deserved 4 or more. YES! Meghan called her amazing. Tom the power, determination, and she recalled singing in Cardiff with him. She wanted not to involve her famous brother in this decision. Olly wants to give him a chance. Tom wants to work with her again. Meghan called her an artist, be her friend, and help you all the way. Will from the bottom of the heart, relentless and then he nominated her to go to Tom.

Sir Tom!  Did will just push the other two out of the way? A tough loss claimed Meghan who promised to steal her later.
