Results from the Knockouts and moving onto the live semi-finals

Deana Walmsley – Team Tom
Cedric Neal – Team Tom
Moya – Team Jennifer
Nicole Dennis – Team Jennifer
NXTGEN – Team Will
Emmanuel Smith – Team Will
Jimmy Balito – Team Olly
Molly Hocking – Team Olly

One wildcard act will also appear next Saturday night – the audience had a say for the first time this season.

Sarah Tucker is my pick. Who did you pick?

Nicole remains the outright favourite to win this season. Depending on your flavour, Moya, Cedric, Deana, Emmanuel, Molly, Jimmy and the boys from NXT all are good acts.

 

Teams – during the battles each team was allowed 10 acts, solo artists, duo or trio to be members.

Which coach has the strongest team? Who will benefit from a good steal? We will try and answer that here.

Our method included a popular betting market service, current acts seen and the coaching style/experience.  However, the underlying song choices, audience responses, production, performances, practices, and approach from each act during the battles will influence the remaining makeup up of any team. The goal is to find acts from each team to follow and eventually one to be crowned winner etc…




 

In Summary, these are the acts to follow this season!

 

Top Tier Group 23/3/2019

The Battle of the season to date between Nicole and Luke. Only one winner, no steals.

Team Tom –  Season 8 Battles Review The Voice UK 2019

Final Battles 9/3/19 will feature Grace Latchford, Equip to Overcome, Ayanam Udoma, Marina Simioni. 

 

Sir Tom Jones’ top three acts include Cedric Neal with 7.00 (third overall), Equip To Overcome (trio) with 13.00 and Peter Donegan with 15.00. These three should remain in his team until the final. His maturity and decision making has him the best coach in this series. Performances, practices, and approach from each act during the battles will influence the remaining makeup up of his and all teams.

Team Will

Team Will best three include Ilianna with 6.00 (second overall),  Emmanuel Smith with 9.00 and there are several longshots that will make up his top three. He should retain these two throughout the competition. The unknown factor with him is he is not always predictable sending some hopefuls off to the exits early. One coach to watch closely.

Week 4 Blind Auditions The Voice UK 2019 watch

Team Jennifer –  Season 8 Battles Review The Voice UK 2019

The final battles will feature

Nicole Dennis, Luke Swatman, Sarah Tucker, Craig Forsyth. I suspect she will pair Nicole v Luke and Sarah v Craig.

Team Jennifer Hudson has the strongest team members. Nicole Dennis is the overall favourite this season, followed next by Moya, and Sarah Tucker. Gisella Green with 9.00 could push into the three or become a steal candidate. These four will form the team backbone and JHud will likely take three all the way to the final based on their auditions. Performances, practices, and approach from each act during the battles will influence the remaining makeup up of her team.

Team Olly acts

Olly Murs has three top acts placed as follows, Stefan Mahendra at 7.00, Nikki Ambers at 9.00 and Molly Hocking at 11.00. Again these three should remain in his team through to the finals. Unless he can not make his mind up as the least experienced coach on the panel.
