FOOTSTEPS

0:00:290:00:30

The world is watching.

0:00:340:00:37

Here's your chance.

0:00:370:00:39

Go.

0:00:390:00:41

FOOTSTEPS

0:00:410:00:42

And I'm hearing footsteps.

0:00:440:00:47

And all they can hear in their head is...

0:00:470:00:49

HE IMITATES A HEARTBEAT

0:00:490:00:51

RHYTHMIC HEARTBEAT

0:00:510:00:53

There's this one breath that you can hear just before the singer

0:00:530:00:57

starts to sing.

0:00:570:00:58

AMPLIFIED INTAKE OF BREATH

# Bring the action. #

0:01:080:01:10

I'm back for The Voice series two.

0:01:110:01:14

# If you love it like I love it... #

0:01:140:01:15

Will.i.am is not only a performer, he's a producer and writer.

0:01:150:01:20

There's nothing that he can't do.

0:01:200:01:23

"So what did you do last week, Will?"

0:01:230:01:25

"Oh, I just had a song played on Mars."

0:01:250:01:27

# Reach for the stars... #

0:01:270:01:29

He's the master of everything.

0:01:290:01:31

# Will.i.am. #

0:01:310:01:32

# J-J-J-J-Jessie J. #

0:01:320:01:34

# Like a laser... #

0:01:340:01:35

Jessie J's really talented.

0:01:350:01:38

She sings really good.

0:01:380:01:39

# Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh. #

0:01:390:01:41

It's fantastic to have someone of her vocal prowess killing it

0:01:410:01:43

with the big ones.

0:01:430:01:46

And do such a fantastic representing her country

0:01:460:01:49

being on the Olympics.

0:01:490:01:50

Danny is an amazing songwriter.

0:01:520:01:55

He's been on tour. He's ready to rumble.

0:01:550:01:58

Danny's in love with music.

0:01:590:02:01

It's like he's on the honeymoon for music.

0:02:010:02:03

"Oh, my God, I love music so much."

0:02:030:02:05

I'm like, "Dude, seriously, you're going to make me throw up."

0:02:050:02:08

-REGGIE:

-And current Voice champion...

0:02:080:02:11

Tom won last year so he's going to be sitting there high and mighty,

0:02:120:02:16

Mr King Jones.

0:02:160:02:18

After winning the first one, I'm one up.

0:02:180:02:21

# That's right... #

0:02:210:02:23

Urgh, I love Tom!

0:02:230:02:24

# You might get what you're after... #

0:02:240:02:26

He's just so good at what he does.

0:02:260:02:29

His voice is golden.

0:02:290:02:31

# Burning down the house. #

0:02:310:02:32

-REGGIE:

-These four megastars don't judge, they coach,

0:02:320:02:36

and between them have over 100 years of experience to share.

0:02:360:02:39

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:420:02:44

-TOM JONES:

-We are all performers,

0:02:440:02:46

so we know what it's like to stand on a stage for the first time.

0:02:460:02:50

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:500:02:52

JESSIE J: You have the most overwhelming rush of excitement.

0:02:540:02:57

-TOM:

-Especially when you hear the roar of the crowd.

MUSIC BEGINS

0:04:170:04:18

# Deep down Louisiana, close to New Orleans

0:04:220:04:25

# Way back up in the woods amongst the evergreens

0:04:250:04:27

# There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood

0:04:270:04:30

# There lived a country boy named of Johnny B Goode

0:04:300:04:32

# Never ever learned to read or write so well

0:04:320:04:35

# But he could play the guitar just like ringing a bell

0:04:350:04:38

Is everybody feeling all right? Hit me one time!

0:05:440:05:46

CHEERING

0:05:460:05:48

You feeling all right? Hit me two times.

0:05:480:05:49

Hell, yeah!

0:05:490:05:51

Yo, Tom, you do that extra "coooooo-woo"! Hit me three times.

0:05:510:05:56

-Yo, Jessie, you ready?

0:05:560:05:59

Well, then hit me four times!

0:05:590:06:00

NEW SONG BEGINS

0:06:030:06:04

CHEERING

0:06:040:06:05

Come on. Let's go.

0:06:050:06:07

# Going to tell Aunt Mary about Uncle John

0:06:070:06:10

# He says he has the blues but he's having lots of fun

0:06:100:06:12

# Yeah, baby

0:06:120:06:14

# Yeah! Oh, baby, hey

0:06:140:06:18

# Ooh, baby we're going have some fun tonight, yeah, yeah

0:06:180:06:23

# Well, long, tall Sally She's built to speed

0:06:230:06:26

# She got everything that Uncle John need

0:06:260:06:28

# Ooh, baby

0:06:280:06:30

# Yeah, oh, baby

0:06:300:06:33

# Baby

0:06:330:06:35

# We're going to have some fun tonight, yeah, yeah, yeah

0:06:350:06:39

# Now I saw Uncle John and long, tall Sally

0:06:390:06:42

# She saw Aunt Mary coming and he ducked back in the alley

0:06:420:06:45

# Oh, baby

0:06:450:06:46

# Yeah! Oh, baby, sing!

0:06:460:06:49

# Oh, baby, are we're going to have some fun tonight?! #

0:06:490:06:53

CHEERING

0:06:530:06:55

# We're going to have some fun tonight

0:06:550:06:57

# Some fun tonight

0:06:570:06:59

-# Have some fun tonight

-Have some fun tonight

0:06:590:07:01

-# Have some fun tonight

-Have some fun tonight

0:07:010:07:04

-# Everything's all right

-Have some fun tonight

0:07:040:07:06

# Have some fun Have some fun tonight

0:07:060:07:09

# Have some fun One, two, three!

0:07:090:07:12

# Have some fun tonight

0:07:120:07:14

# Have some fun tonight

# A-womp-bop-a-loo-bop

0:07:250:07:27

# A-womp-bop-a-loo-bop

0:07:270:07:28

# A-womp-bop-a-loo-bop

0:07:280:07:30

# A womp-bam-boom! #

0:07:300:07:31

CHEERING

0:07:310:07:32

-So that is how they do it.

-And this is how we do it.

0:07:440:07:48

The blind auditions start now.

0:07:480:07:50

-REGGIE:

-Each coach wants to build the best possible team

0:07:540:07:56

of 12 singers.

0:07:560:07:58

And the search begins at the blind auditions.

0:07:590:08:02

We have our backs turned to the artist.

0:08:020:08:03

You have no preconceived idea about what that person looks like.

0:08:030:08:07

My ears are just like magnets.

0:08:070:08:10

You're listening for some magical moment to spark!

0:08:110:08:14

Ooh!

0:08:140:08:15

If a coach likes what they hear, they hit a button.

0:08:150:08:18

-REGGIE:

-And that artist wins a place in their team.

0:08:180:08:21

But if more than one chair turns around...

0:08:210:08:23

The power shifts.

0:08:230:08:24

-REGGIE:

-And the coaches have to convince that artist

0:08:240:08:27

to join their team.

0:08:270:08:28

Then we're in a bidding war, an old school record company bidding war.

0:08:280:08:31

Get your weapons, we're going to war.

0:08:310:08:33

SHE IMITATES GUNFIRE

0:08:330:08:35

I take this seriously.

0:08:350:08:36

I'm not safe! I'm more dangerous than them all!

0:08:360:08:39

When I say I'm going to fight, I fight.

0:08:390:08:41

Really?!

0:08:410:08:42

It's on. Come on!

0:08:420:08:43

Danny! Danny!

0:08:430:08:44

I'm not here to enjoy the competition,

0:08:440:08:46

I'm here to destroy the competition.

0:08:460:08:48

He shoots, he scores.

0:08:480:08:50

If the other three coaches are going to compete with me, good luck.

0:08:500:08:53

It's all down to you now, so which coach will you choose?

0:08:530:08:56

Come on!

0:08:560:08:57

This is so hard.

0:08:570:08:58

-REGGIE:

-But if no coach turns, the artist is out of the competition.

0:09:000:09:04

I am gutted.

0:09:040:09:06

I don't know if I would've made it on The Voice,

0:09:060:09:08

because the level really is that high.

0:09:080:09:10

-REGGIE:

-Each coach wants to discover the one artist who'll win it all.

0:09:120:09:16

This year, I'm not settling for anything better than winning.

0:09:160:09:18

Come here, baby.

0:09:180:09:20

A record deal with Universal Music

0:09:200:09:22

and the chance to be named The Voice.

0:09:220:09:24

Oh, my God, this is like a dream!

0:09:240:09:26

No-one in the charts right now sounds like you,

0:09:280:09:31

that's why we're doing this show.

0:09:310:09:33

It's such an incredible platform.

0:09:330:09:35

You're singing to millions of people right away.

0:09:350:09:39

And I think you got a great voice

0:09:390:09:40

and I would love to have you on my team.

0:09:400:09:42

I can't wait to fight for a singer to join my team

0:09:430:09:46

so I can fight for them.

0:09:460:09:48

The blind auditions start now.

0:09:480:09:50

-REGGIE:

-So this it it.

0:09:550:09:57

Thousands applied but only the very best were chosen

0:09:570:10:00

to sing in front of our four global superstars.

0:10:000:10:03

And as the first of those arrive, nerves are starting to kick in.

0:10:080:10:11

-REGGIE:

-Our coaches know nothing about these acts,

0:10:180:10:21

but here's everything you need to know about this man.

0:10:210:10:24

My name is Ash Morgan, I'm 26 and I'm a youth arts coordinator.

0:10:240:10:29

I'm from South Wales, in the Valleys,

0:10:290:10:32

and I've lived here all my life and it's where I live and work now.

0:10:320:10:36

I work predominantly with children from special schools.

0:10:360:10:40

These are the leaves for the big flowers, yeah?

0:10:400:10:43

The job can sometimes be challenging,

0:10:430:10:45

but it's really rewarding.

0:10:450:10:48

Looks like a stained glass window, doesn't it?

0:10:480:10:50

I've never had any singing lessons.

0:10:500:10:52

I sang at a karaoke evening when I was 16.

0:10:520:10:55

That was the first time, really, that I sang in public.

0:10:550:10:58

But I don't do any gigs these days.

0:10:580:11:00

I'm really focused on my art sessions with the special schools.

0:11:000:11:03

-Nice to see you. How are you feeling?

-OK. Very nervous.

-Are you?

0:11:050:11:09

-Yeah.

-Just pretend they don't exist.

-I intend on doing that.

0:11:090:11:12

Those chairs are completely empty.

0:11:120:11:14

You haven't got four of the world's biggest superstars sat in them.

0:11:140:11:17

-I'm not helping, am I?

-No.

-I'll shut up.

0:11:170:11:22

I think, image, if you're a singer, is really, really important,

0:11:220:11:27

but it should be secondary to the voice.

0:11:270:11:29

To be able to go out there and to be judged purely on vocal ability,

0:11:290:11:34

I tink is really liberating, actually.

0:11:340:11:36

I don't really play that often in public, so singing in front

0:11:390:11:43

of the coaches is going to be really nerve-racking.

0:11:430:11:46

-How do you reckon he's feeling?

-Terrified.

-Do you think?

-Mm.

0:11:510:11:55

RHYTHMIC HEARTBEAT

# Oh, we could live

0:13:000:13:05

# For a thousand years

0:13:050:13:09

# But if I hurt you

0:13:090:13:12

# I'd make wine from your tears

0:13:120:13:16

# I told you

0:13:160:13:19

# We could fly

0:13:200:13:25

# Cos we all have wings

0:13:250:13:28

# But some of us don't know why

0:13:280:13:33

# I was standing

0:13:350:13:37

# You were there

0:13:380:13:42

# Two worlds collided

0:13:420:13:45

# And they could never never, never tear us apart. #

0:14:320:14:37

-Abercynon. I know it well.

-It knows you well as well.

-Oh, really?

0:14:370:14:43

-How is it then? I haven't been there for a while.

-It's lovely.

0:14:450:14:47

-We have got pavements and everything now.

-Have you?

0:14:470:14:50

LAUGHTER

0:14:500:14:54

-One thing I have to ask you is what's occurring?

-Oh, nothing much.

0:14:540:14:59

-Nothing is happening, really.

-Well, you sing great.

0:14:590:15:02

What do you do for a living?

0:15:020:15:05

-I teach workshops for special needs children.

-Oh, right.

0:15:070:15:10

CHEERING

0:15:100:15:12

I love it. Yeah, it's great.

0:15:130:15:16

Tom was saying you are a great singer.

0:15:160:15:18

I don't think you're a great singer.

0:15:180:15:20

I think you are an exceptional singer.

0:15:200:15:21

CHEERING

0:15:210:15:23

I would absolutely love you to join my team.

0:15:250:15:27

Well, Ashley, you know, you are a spectacular singer.

0:15:320:15:36

When I turned around I was even more thrilled to see you perform

0:15:360:15:42

and perform with passion and emotion.

0:15:420:15:45

And I believe you're singing for something

0:15:450:15:48

and you represent all the teachers out there,

0:15:480:15:51

all the people that care for kids and you are double talented,

0:15:510:15:56

double blessed and your heart is as big as your voice

0:15:560:15:59

and I would love to have you on my team.

0:15:590:16:01

CHEERING

0:16:010:16:02

Thank you.

0:16:040:16:05

So, here it goes.

0:16:070:16:08

I will kick myself if you don't pick me after this speech

0:16:080:16:11

so I hope it is good.

0:16:110:16:13

LAUGHTER

0:16:130:16:14

We probably... We probably... Oh, I've messed it up already.

0:16:140:16:18

We probably share the same CD collection.

0:16:180:16:20

There is a difference between singing and sangin'.

0:16:200:16:25

And you sang and the thrill that I had when I heard your voice...

0:16:250:16:30

I was the first to turn around.

0:16:300:16:32

I genuinely believe that I could really, really coach you well

0:16:320:16:38

and I'm very real so I would never have come out and just...

0:16:380:16:42

I wanted to just watch you.

0:16:420:16:43

I wanted to be front row and that was mind blowing

0:16:430:16:46

so thank you for being such an incredible...

0:16:460:16:49

CHEERING

0:16:490:16:50

You obviously came onto the show with somebody in your head.

0:16:550:16:58

You know, again, we can pitch as much as we want.

0:16:580:17:01

I'm really pleased... Really and flattered and overwhelmed

0:17:010:17:05

that you have turned round

0:17:050:17:09

but I think I'm going to...

0:17:090:17:11

I think I'm going to have to go with Jessie.

0:17:230:17:25

CHEERING

0:17:250:17:26

It's an honour.

0:17:310:17:33

Well done.

0:17:360:17:37

# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

0:17:560:17:58

# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. #

0:17:580:18:00

It's so ridiculous, isn't it?

0:18:040:18:06

It was an amazing experience and just so much better than anything

0:18:060:18:09

I have ever done. It was great.

0:18:090:18:11

He's brilliant.

0:18:110:18:12

-Yeah.

-Go Wales.

0:18:120:18:13

-REGGIE:

-And we are off as Jessie pulls no punches in winning

0:18:130:18:16

the first member of her team.

0:18:160:18:18

If these four want the very best teams,

0:18:180:18:20

they better get ready to fight for them.

0:18:200:18:23

All four of us are back. It is definitely my favourite bit.

0:18:230:18:25

The blinds, the fighting talk.

0:18:250:18:27

Do you want to go with Dan the man or the man with the than?

0:18:270:18:29

Me and Will get into some heated discussions.

0:18:290:18:31

-He asked for my help.

-It's a matter of opinion.

0:18:310:18:33

I just don't think it is fair to cut someone out.

0:18:330:18:36

I am super excited about getting back into the chair.

0:18:360:18:38

I am looking forward to seeing Danny and Will go to war like last time.

0:18:380:18:41

It'll be like if Will turns, Danny is there.

0:18:410:18:44

DANNY: I know Will more and a lot better now

0:18:440:18:46

so I know I can push his buttons, pardon the pun.

0:18:460:18:48

Danny does the, "Ooh, ooh," thing.

0:18:480:18:50

Ooh, ooh, ooh!

0:18:500:18:51

I hope he doesn't this year.

0:18:510:18:53

You'll get me standing up in the chair, getting everybody riled up.

0:18:530:18:55

Tom's got a few names to drop, I'm sure.

0:18:550:18:57

I know Chris Isaak. Uh-oh, there I go again.

0:18:570:19:00

I said to Elvis, I said, "Look."

0:19:000:19:01

LAUGHTER

0:19:010:19:03

We are The Voice series two.

0:19:030:19:04

Series two, are you ready?

0:19:040:19:06

Yeah!

0:19:060:19:08

Bring it on.

0:19:080:19:10

Your age, experience or lack of it doesn't matter.

0:19:120:19:16

On this show, only your voice counts.

0:19:160:19:19

Which is good news for 22-year-old Danny County from London.

0:19:190:19:23

I have always sung. Maybe quietly to myself in my room.

0:19:230:19:28

I would never have thought of it as proper singing.

0:19:280:19:31

I was more just singing along to the radio.

0:19:310:19:36

I did my first gig this year. It was an open mic night.

0:19:360:19:40

I was panicking. I couldn't really breath and I was so, so nervous.

0:19:400:19:45

When I audition today it will be my third time

0:19:500:19:53

I have ever sung in public so I am a little bit terrified.

0:19:530:19:57

I feel quite like I must be the least experienced person here.

0:20:010:20:07

# It was so easy that night

0:20:170:20:21

# Should have been strong but I lied

0:20:210:20:25

# Nobody gets me like you do

0:20:250:20:30

# Should have kept hold of you then

0:20:330:20:36

# How could I know what you meant?

0:20:360:20:40

# Give me tonight and I'll show you

0:20:400:20:45

# I know everything changes

0:20:480:20:52

# Like the cities and faces

0:20:520:20:55

# But I know how I feel about you

0:20:550:21:01

# There's a mountain between us

0:21:030:21:07

# But there's one thing I'm sure of

0:21:070:21:11

# Is that I know how I feel about you

0:21:110:21:16

# Can we bring yesterday back around

0:21:180:21:23

# Cos I know how I feel about you now

0:21:260:21:31

# I was young, I was dumb I let you down

0:21:340:21:39

# But I know how I feel

0:21:420:21:47

# About you now. #

0:21:470:21:51

CHEERING

0:21:510:21:52

Wow.

0:22:100:22:11

-Hi.

-Hi.

0:22:150:22:16

-Thank you so much for turning.

-What is your name?

0:22:160:22:19

-My name is Danny County.

-Danny. And how old are you?

0:22:190:22:21

I'm 22.

0:22:210:22:22

Yeah.

0:22:220:22:23

I just want to find out a bit of background.

0:22:230:22:25

You have got a very, very, very unique tone.

0:22:250:22:27

This is like the third time I've ever sung publicly.

0:22:270:22:31

CHEERING

0:22:310:22:34

Wow.

0:22:340:22:36

Well, you didn't throw yourself in the deep end, then.

0:22:360:22:39

-A little bit.

-I'll do a little gig here and then I'll do The Voice.

0:22:390:22:42

LAUGHTER

0:22:420:22:44

The reason I turned around his cos I'm looking for a unique voice.

0:22:440:22:47

-There were slight pitching problems.

-Yeah, definitely.

0:22:470:22:49

But on a voice like that, that has, you know, tone for miles,

0:22:490:22:52

has a lot of character, I know exactly what to do.

0:22:520:22:55

I absolutely know, we'll get on like a house on fire.

0:22:550:22:58

I really appreciate this. You're really good.

0:22:580:23:00

CHEERING

0:23:000:23:02

I turned around cos you are a challenge for me.

0:23:020:23:04

I've never, ever worked with someone with a voice like yours,

0:23:040:23:06

which I think is the best part about it

0:23:060:23:09

and this being the third time you've sung in public...

0:23:090:23:12

Jeez.

0:23:120:23:13

LAUGHTER

0:23:130:23:14

-Is this the bit where I choose?

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:23:180:23:22

Sorry, I'm just, like, proper...

0:23:240:23:26

No, take your time.

0:23:260:23:28

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Take Danny!

0:23:310:23:32

Ssh! Security!

0:23:320:23:36

Danny, Danny.

0:23:360:23:38

Come on, take a risk. It'll make you comfortable.

0:23:380:23:41

First time on the show. I'm doing it.

0:23:430:23:46

Can I ask a question, please?

0:23:460:23:48

Can I ask a question?

0:23:480:23:49

-Is it hard for you to make your decision?

-Yeah.

-Do you mind...

0:23:510:23:55

-Go on, yeah, talk to him if you want.

-I don't want to intervene.

0:23:550:23:59

LAUGHTER

0:23:590:24:01

Transparency is clarity so I'm going to be transparent.

0:24:010:24:05

He's now going to say, "Pick Danny,"

0:24:050:24:07

cos he never wants people to pick me.

0:24:070:24:08

-Just so you know.

-No, I'm not going to do that. You can't say that.

0:24:080:24:12

-Danny is the man for you.

-No, no. Jessie, she is more than a singer.

0:24:120:24:16

And it's true because she is more... # More than a singer. #

0:24:160:24:19

She's more than a singer. And Danny is more than a singer too.

0:24:190:24:23

He writes, he produces. So, I don't

0:24:230:24:25

-mean to make it more confusing.

-You're meant to be making it easier.

0:24:250:24:28

-TOM:

-You're making it more confusing there.

0:24:280:24:29

But I'm just being honest. That dude is a good choice in my eyes.

0:24:290:24:34

Thank you very much.

0:24:340:24:36

APPLAUSE

0:24:360:24:37

OK, so the last two months I have been in LA, writing my album.

0:24:390:24:43

No, I can't play guitar. No, I can't produce.

0:24:430:24:45

but my phone is filled with producers' numbers.

0:24:450:24:47

Trust me, we can fill your head with all this magical stuff

0:24:470:24:50

about producers and XYZ and Boom Boom Pow but...

0:24:500:24:54

-That's my song.

-That's his song.

0:24:540:24:56

But I feel like you'd be safer with Danny if I'm 100% honest.

0:24:560:25:00

Sitting down in the studio. A few beers. Lads all sitting around.

0:25:000:25:03

Do you know what I'm saying?

0:25:030:25:05

That's my bag. That's what I do all day long. They know this.

0:25:050:25:09

JESSIE: This is about The Voice UK.

0:25:090:25:12

I'm not going to fill your head with smoke cos that's not real.

0:25:120:25:14

I'll say if you come on my team I will be real with you,

0:25:140:25:17

I will teach you about the industry,

0:25:170:25:18

I will teach you how to make yourself a worldwide star in two years

0:25:180:25:22

and we won't drink alcohol because it's bad for your voice so...

0:25:220:25:26

So, Team Dan it is!

0:25:260:25:28

LAUGHTER

0:25:280:25:29

Come here, baby. Come here.

0:25:310:25:33

-Do you ever wear denim on denim?

-No.

0:25:330:25:35

He does. It freaks me out.

0:25:350:25:37

LAUGHTER

0:25:370:25:39

CHANTING: Danny, Danny, Danny...

0:25:390:25:42

You know, I think... JESSIE: Come on. Come on.

0:25:420:25:44

-Yeah, let's do it.

-OK.

0:25:440:25:46

-Thank you both so much for turning...

-No worries.

0:25:460:25:49

..but I think I'm going to go with Team...

0:25:490:25:53

..Jessie.

0:26:020:26:04

CHEERING

0:26:040:26:05

Well done. I'm glad. Good decision.

0:26:070:26:11

Well done. She genuinely will make it about her team. I'm sorry. So sorry.

0:26:110:26:16

Yes.

0:26:180:26:19

You had two of our coaches totally battling for you.

0:26:240:26:27

You ended up going with Jessie. What made you decide to go that way?

0:26:270:26:30

She was being really real about it

0:26:300:26:32

and just everything really made sense of she wasn't saying that

0:26:320:26:36

she's better, she was saying she's going to push me to do my best.

0:26:360:26:39

I think it is unfair to influence them on their decision.

0:26:410:26:44

-He asked for my help. It's not passing out cookies.

-I just...

0:26:440:26:48

It's a matter of opinion.

0:26:480:26:49

I just don't think it's fair to cut someone out.

0:26:490:26:51

The reason why I didn't go is

0:26:510:26:52

-cos I felt it would be best with Danny.

-He was clearly down my road.

0:26:520:26:57

That's why he went with me. You know it. You know it.

0:26:570:26:59

It would have been a good pairing.

0:26:590:27:01

-You're making presumptions.

-No.

0:27:010:27:02

It hasn't happened yet and you are already telling me it's a mistake.

0:27:020:27:05

It's my opinion. That's like, Whoa, OK, handcuff. Handcuff. Zip him.

0:27:050:27:10

I just didn't think it was very fair.

0:27:100:27:13

-It's getting heavy.

-Already.

-No, wait a minute. Can I say something?

0:27:130:27:18

-Yeah.

-If you see a certain kind of singer,

0:27:180:27:20

you don't have to sing that way yourself.

0:27:200:27:22

The nature of the beast is that you are a fantastic singer

0:27:220:27:25

and any fantastic singer is going to want to be on your team.

0:27:250:27:27

I'm not just a great singer.

0:27:270:27:29

Everything you said there. Bang.

0:27:290:27:30

We all know about music. That's why we are sitting here.

0:27:300:27:33

I think I did the right thing cos he obviously couldn't make a decision.

0:27:330:27:36

-Well, let's just hope he made the right one.

-You know.

0:27:360:27:38

You must feel that he did though.

0:27:380:27:40

Yeah, I wouldn't have pressed my button first if I didn't believe it.

0:27:400:27:43

I wouldn't think about anything...

0:27:430:27:45

I wouldn't worry about anything else.

0:27:450:27:47

Coaches, keep calm and carry on, your next singer awaits.

0:27:520:27:56

It's 24-year-old Southend girl Leanne Jarvis.

0:27:560:28:00

Performing is everything to me.

0:28:000:28:03

I haven't had professional training so I have sort of trained myself.

0:28:030:28:06

I have been in girl bands. I've done tribute acts.

0:28:060:28:10

I went to Majorca, I was there for the season.

0:28:100:28:12

I have worked with, like, producers, DJs.

0:28:120:28:14

So I've done a lot of things but I go two steps forward

0:28:140:28:17

and then it's always two steps back again.

0:28:170:28:19

So where are you at in the world of work at the moment? What do you do?

0:28:190:28:22

I am just at an office at the moment.

0:28:220:28:24

I was a landlady at a pub but it fell through

0:28:240:28:27

so now I am back at my mum's, staying with her. I share a room with her.

0:28:270:28:30

-Wow.

-Yeah, it's sort of hard times at the moment.

0:28:300:28:33

It's a little bit like being a kid again.

0:28:330:28:36

She has only got a small, little flat so I am sharing a bed with her.

0:28:360:28:39

It's a little bit difficult but I'm trying to get back on my feet.

0:28:390:28:42

So, how exactly does that work then, Bruce?

0:28:440:28:47

Your girlfriend shares a bed with her mum so...

0:28:470:28:49

-Mate, it's hard.

-It is hard. That's where my life is at the moment.

0:28:490:28:53

Even if just one person turns around then I'm going to be grateful.

0:28:570:29:01

Just to pick little old me from Southend-on-Sea.

0:29:010:29:05

If it doesn't work, I'm back to square one again.

0:29:050:29:08

This could be it for me.

0:29:090:29:10

# Where did you go

0:29:390:29:42

# When things went wrong, baby?

0:29:450:29:50

# Who did you run to

0:29:510:29:56

# And find a shoulder to lay your head upon?

0:29:560:30:02

# Baby, wasn't I there?

0:30:030:30:08

# Didn't I take good care of you?

0:30:090:30:15

# No, no, I can't believe you're leaving me

0:30:170:30:22

# Stay with me baby

0:30:260:30:30

# Please, stay with me baby

0:30:320:30:37

# Remember you said you're always gonna need me

0:30:370:30:43

# Remember you said you're never gonna leave me

0:30:430:30:49

# Remember, remember

0:30:490:30:51

# I'm asking you, begging you,

0:30:510:30:55

# Oh! Oh-oh-oh!

0:30:550:31:01

# Stay with me, baby. #

0:31:010:31:10

CHEERING

0:31:100:31:14

Give me a high five, girl.

0:31:240:31:26

Well done.

0:31:270:31:29

Thank you so much.

0:31:290:31:31

-Yeah.

-Hiya.

0:31:350:31:36

Your name is.

0:31:360:31:37

My name is Leanne.

0:31:370:31:39

# Leanne! #

0:31:390:31:40

Leanne Jarvis.

0:31:400:31:43

How old are you?

0:31:430:31:44

I'm 24.

0:31:440:31:45

My age. OK, so, here's the thing.

0:31:450:31:47

I turned around first and all of those...

0:31:470:31:50

-But I turned around cooler.

-Wait a minute.

0:31:500:31:53

LAUGHTER

0:31:530:31:54

You did turn around really, really cool.

0:31:540:31:58

If you watch back, these guys were not feeling it.

0:31:580:32:01

No, no, you're wrong.

0:32:010:32:03

No, no, no, I was like...

0:32:030:32:04

-I was feeling it. I was thinking it.

-And I turned first.

0:32:040:32:07

I was feeling it and I was, like, just, like, thinking it.

0:32:070:32:09

Wait a minute. You will have your pitch in a minute. Let me speak.

0:32:090:32:12

Sorry. She was judging my thinking-ness.

0:32:120:32:14

-Uh-uh, I'm not judging you.

-That's right.

0:32:140:32:16

I was just saying, in my opinion, I felt that you guys were like,

0:32:160:32:20

"Hmm," and I was the first one.

0:32:200:32:21

You should have seen me.

0:32:210:32:22

My eyes were closed, I was sitting back, you hit a high note

0:32:220:32:25

and I leapt up out of my seat.

0:32:250:32:26

And I was thinking about how I was going to turn around cos

0:32:260:32:29

-I just didn't want to turn around.

-You turned around so good.

0:32:290:32:32

SHE TALKS OVER HIM: Anyway, what I'm saying is, same age,

0:32:320:32:36

I know how to help really nurture your vocal, I really do.

0:32:360:32:41

I understand how it is to be 24 and wanting to be a female cos

0:32:410:32:44

I am a female. That was a weird thing to say.

0:32:440:32:46

You're wanting to be a female.

0:32:460:32:47

The rumours are true, y'all. What? She's a boy!

0:32:470:32:51

And I would be honoured if you would work with me so, yeah.

0:32:530:32:56

Wow.

0:32:560:32:57

Over to these guys to talk for ages about people they have worked with.

0:32:570:33:02

Lyrics. He'll just talk weird stuff to completely hypnotise you.

0:33:020:33:07

-I'm not going to hypnotise you.

-He will hypnotise you.

0:33:070:33:09

He'll be like, "That was dope so we gotta go and

0:33:090:33:11

"lock in some missiles. Pow, pow!

0:33:110:33:14

"Then we are going to go to Tokyo and we're going to get some,

0:33:140:33:17

"like, Mars stuff going on."

0:33:170:33:18

LAUGHTER

0:33:180:33:20

-The thing is I actually do those things.

-Yeah, I know, exactly.

0:33:200:33:24

APPLAUSE

0:33:240:33:27

Tom's pitch. Tom's pitch.

0:33:280:33:30

-Hi, Tom.

-On the overall thing, I really liked it and...

0:33:300:33:35

Thank you very much.

0:33:350:33:36

You are very beautiful and your voice suits the way you look.

0:33:360:33:39

SHE GIGGLES

0:33:390:33:41

Genuinely, you know, I know as a female vocalist you,

0:33:410:33:44

probably more than likely, might have had Jessie in mind.

0:33:440:33:46

I think me and you would make a great, great partnership.

0:33:460:33:49

I really do. Do you think song choice now or singing lessons now?

0:33:490:33:52

What do you think is actually going to...

0:33:520:33:54

What are you lacking in, basically?

0:33:540:33:56

-I think I just need direction, really.

-That's over here.

0:33:560:33:59

LAUGHTER

0:33:590:34:00

So he can direct you right over here.

0:34:000:34:02

So there are a couple of people on my label that

0:34:020:34:04

I have gave direction to and guided in their career.

0:34:040:34:08

I'm not trying to over-pitch it but you see what I'm saying?

0:34:080:34:12

The only reason why...

0:34:120:34:13

LAUGHTER

0:34:130:34:14

That's not sleeping.

0:34:140:34:16

There are just certain things you can't compete with.

0:34:160:34:20

-We all love you. We all appreciate the way you sing.

-Wow.

0:34:230:34:29

It's decision time. Who are you going to go for?

0:34:290:34:31

I'm just so overwhelmed that all four of you turned round.

0:34:340:34:37

I feel like I'm actually in a weird dream.

0:34:370:34:39

Ooh.

0:34:440:34:45

I'm going to go for Will.i.am.

0:34:530:34:54

MUSIC: "Spectrum" by Florence And The Machine

# Say my name

0:34:560:34:59

# And every colour illuminates

0:34:590:35:02

# We are shining

0:35:020:35:06

# And we'll never be afraid again

0:35:060:35:10

# Say my name. #

0:35:100:35:12

CHEERING

0:35:120:35:14

In my wildest dreams, I didn't think all four of them would turn around.

0:35:200:35:24

If I had put these on, maybe she would have picked me.

0:35:260:35:29

-You look dope.

-I'm transparent so...

-That's the secret.

0:35:300:35:33

I'm the kind of coach that you need because I was in a band,

0:35:330:35:37

you know, with my friends and...

0:35:370:35:39

Oh, my God, you look so scary in them.

0:35:390:35:41

-Do I? Do they not suit me?

-No, I like it.

0:35:410:35:43

So, Leanne kicks off Team Will but is she ready to enter planet i.am?

0:35:430:35:48

# Come with me and you'll be

0:35:480:35:51

# In a world of pure imagination. #

0:35:510:35:56

Action. Let's go.

0:35:560:35:58

Will, there's never a dull moment when he is around.

0:35:590:36:04

# Da, da, da-da, da-da, da, da, dah, da. #

0:36:040:36:06

World of wonders.

0:36:060:36:07

-Does everybody still believe in Santa Claus like I do?

-Yeah.

0:36:070:36:11

Robotics? I am all about robotics.

0:36:110:36:13

'What did you do last week Will?'

0:36:130:36:14

I got a song that was beamed on Mars.

0:36:140:36:16

-That's dope.

-What?

0:36:160:36:18

Looks like a duck, quacks like a duck.

0:36:190:36:22

Birds, ducks. I think he has lost the plot.

0:36:220:36:25

Who said that?

0:36:250:36:26

I know hickory dickory dock. The mouse may have ran up the clock.

0:36:260:36:29

I think he has some kind of Jedi mind trick.

0:36:290:36:31

Does it make me look like a size 12?

0:36:310:36:32

You look like a size oh, my gosh, girl.

0:36:320:36:35

Sneaky Willy.

0:36:350:36:37

I don't know what it is. He's hypnotising them.

0:36:370:36:39

My eyes. Look into my eyes.

0:36:390:36:41

He just talks in rhymes and rhythms.

0:36:430:36:45

You got the highs and lows and you've got some fresh clothes.

0:36:450:36:48

Flipping it with my spatula. Spectacular.

0:36:480:36:50

Check out my vernaculars.

0:36:500:36:52

Boo yeow, how do you like one?

0:36:520:36:53

For those that don't know boo yeow, as if it was a sound effect

0:36:530:36:56

after you're hit, boo, and then yeow as you fall.

0:36:560:36:59

Will uses a lot of expressions.

0:36:590:37:01

Guy's dope. Dope. Super mega dope. Freaking fantabulous.

0:37:010:37:04

Once you know what they mean then you can get in tune with it.

0:37:040:37:07

It was fresh.

0:37:070:37:09

That was the dopest thing in the history of, like, freshness.

0:37:090:37:13

So that is mad fresh.

0:37:130:37:14

-REGGIE:

-Grown men tremble at the thought of singing for our four

0:37:170:37:20

superstar coaches so how will 16-year-old Louis Coupe cope?

0:37:200:37:25

I am always called the boring kid at school cos

0:37:250:37:28

I am always in my room listening to old records and staff.

0:37:280:37:32

I was inspired by Elton John.

0:37:320:37:34

I went to see him in concert about four years ago.'

0:37:340:37:36

I came home after watching the gig and thought,

0:37:360:37:38

"Wow, I want to do that." I searched on YouTube how to play the piano.

0:37:380:37:42

I played repetitively, playing over and over and over.

0:37:420:37:46

I play about five or six instruments. The piano is my main.

0:37:470:37:51

Guitar, drums, ukelele and mandolin.

0:37:510:37:56

I'm just always, always playing.

0:37:570:37:59

To play in front of four international stars,

0:38:010:38:04

I will treasure it for life.

0:38:040:38:06

The fact the coaches can't see me

0:38:070:38:09

is the one part that is getting me nervous because a lot of my act

0:38:090:38:11

is relying on being young and playing the piano and stuff.

0:38:110:38:14

My biggest fear is that I'm going to muck up.

0:38:180:38:21

-Fingers crossed, guys.

-Come on, Louis.

CHEERING

0:40:180:40:20

Thank you, guys.

0:40:200:40:23

Thank you.

0:40:250:40:26

DANNY: Hey, mate.

0:40:340:40:35

Hello.

0:40:350:40:36

JESSIE: Hello.

0:40:360:40:37

What's your name?

0:40:370:40:38

My name is Louis Coupe.

0:40:380:40:40

I'm 16.

0:40:400:40:41

CHEERING

0:40:410:40:43

As far as singing goes, what is your background in singing?

0:40:460:40:49

Well, mainly sort of rock and roll sort of thing. Old stuff.

0:40:490:40:53

Elton John, the Beatles, Jerry Lee Lewis,

0:40:530:40:55

all that sort of style. That's sort of my style of singing.

0:40:550:40:58

OK, I just thought it was a little too proper.

0:40:580:41:00

It is when you're over-pronouncing the words a little bit.

0:41:000:41:02

It loses the sentiment, for me.

0:41:020:41:04

Your pitch was perfect.

0:41:040:41:06

When you hit their chorus, you nailed the chorus.

0:41:060:41:08

The audience here absolutely loved it.

0:41:080:41:10

APPLAUSE

0:41:100:41:12

I thought it was great

0:41:120:41:14

but I think you're just a little too comfortable on a piano.

0:41:140:41:18

I remember when I was 16. It was, like, energy, like, "Aaargh!"

0:41:180:41:22

You know? You only live through that once. Maybe put that in your music.

0:41:220:41:27

Thank you, thank you.

0:41:270:41:29

Hi.

0:41:290:41:30

Hello.

0:41:300:41:31

Do you mind if I am really bluntly honest with you?

0:41:320:41:35

Totally. That's what I want you to be.

0:41:350:41:37

OK, good. If I was in the front row of any musical,

0:41:370:41:40

I would have just stood up for that performance because it was clean,

0:41:400:41:44

it was on pitch, it was pronounced, it was projected, it was believable.

0:41:440:41:48

I honestly think that tomorrow you could audition for Les Mis,

0:41:480:41:52

you could audition for any musical and be a leading role at 16.

0:41:520:41:55

Thank you, thank you.

0:41:550:41:56

CHEERING

0:41:560:41:57

So, actually, what she is saying is you are 16,

0:41:570:42:00

there's a whole bunch of creative 16-year-old kids that you

0:42:000:42:03

-probably know - write your own musical.

-Yes.

-That way you own it.

0:42:030:42:07

-I'll be in it.

-And you make more money

0:42:070:42:09

than selling records on a record company.

0:42:090:42:11

-Can I just say I have written a musical.

-Yes!

0:42:110:42:16

That's what I'm talking about. Boom. Boom.

0:42:160:42:21

CHEERING

0:42:210:42:25

-Thank you so much for performing for us.

-Yeah, it was great.

0:42:260:42:29

Thank you. Thank you.

0:42:290:42:31

Before you go, I'd like to hear a little Jerry Lee Lewis,

0:42:310:42:33

-if you could...

-Do you want me to?

0:42:330:42:36

Yes.

0:42:360:42:38

0:42:380:42:41

You wait till you hear it.

# Too much love drives a man insane

# Goodness, gracious Great balls of fire!

# I laughed at love cos I thought it was funny

# You came along and you moved me, honey

0:43:020:43:03

# This love is kind

# Goodness, gracious Great balls of fire!

0:43:050:43:07

# Kiss me, baby

0:43:070:43:09

# Oh, feels good

0:43:110:43:13

# Hold me, baby

0:43:130:43:15

# You got to let me love you like a lover should

# Got to tell this world that you're mine, mine, mine, mine

# I'm getting nervous but it sure is fun

0:43:270:43:31

# Come on, baby You drive me crazy

0:43:310:43:33

# Goodness, gracious Great balls of fire! #

0:43:330:43:37

Yeah!

0:43:370:43:38

CHEERING

0:43:380:43:39

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:43:430:43:44

That was the best moment of my life. That was amazing.

0:43:440:43:47

Wow.

0:43:480:43:49

Ooh, it's exciting. Thank you so much. Thank you.

0:43:510:43:54

And I got to dance with him.

0:44:040:44:07

Well, I enjoyed it. I enjoyed that.

0:44:160:44:20

CHEERING

0:44:200:44:21

Oh, wow.

0:44:240:44:26

Giving them Great Balls Of Fire!

0:44:260:44:28

He can go anywhere he wants to, that kid.

0:44:290:44:32

Oh, yeah, no, I'm buzzing now. That was amazing.

0:44:320:44:35

Just to play and to be asked to play again was just incredible.

0:44:350:44:39

Give him a hug, please.

0:44:390:44:41

Well done.

0:44:430:44:44

Four superstars, four chairs, one chance.

0:44:450:44:49

If Louis couldn't get them spinning, what's going to get them

0:44:490:44:52

to push their buttons?

0:44:520:44:53

What I listen for is originality.

0:44:530:44:56

I like the ones that hit me with a natural-sounding voice.

0:44:560:45:00

I'm not looking for anything in particular.

0:45:000:45:02

I'm just looking for the voice.

0:45:020:45:04

'It's just like desire, attraction, magnetic, sucks you in.'

0:45:040:45:09

I'm going to look for massive diversity in all ranges

0:45:090:45:12

'and all areas of music.'

0:45:120:45:13

I want to hear someone with potential and

0:45:130:45:15

if someone gives you goose bumps then I think you have to go for it.

0:45:150:45:18

I like somebody that could stand up anywhere

0:45:180:45:20

and when that person sings people go, "Wow."

0:45:200:45:23

If that person hits you...

0:45:260:45:28

Bang.

0:45:280:45:30

Bam.

0:45:300:45:31

Push the button, the chair goes round.

0:45:310:45:34

Next up is 26-year-old Andrea Begley from Belfast who has a unique

0:45:350:45:39

understanding of how it feels to judge others

0:45:390:45:42

purely on the way they sound.

0:45:420:45:44

When I was about five years old,

0:45:440:45:46

I found out I had a condition called glaucoma which is high-pressure

0:45:460:45:51

in my eyes and it has meant that I have now lost 90% of my vision.

Glaucoma is a degenerative condition so once your vision is gone,

0:45:570:46:02

Basically, that's it. There is no means of getting it back.

0:46:020:46:05

I had to adapt the way I did things.

0:46:050:46:09

For example, playing for friends are watching TV or the ordinary

0:46:090:46:14

things that you normally take for granted.

0:46:140:46:16

You're judging me completely on how I am speaking to you.

0:46:160:46:19

Am I doing all right?

0:46:190:46:20

-Am I doing OK?

-You're doing great.

-Good.

0:46:200:46:24

Music really became, I suppose, my get-out.

0:46:240:46:28

'It was a natural progression, really.'

0:46:280:46:30

She just loves singing. She sings round the house

0:46:300:46:33

and we are tired of listening to her singing in the house.

0:46:330:46:36

When I sing, it just takes me to somewhere else.

0:46:360:46:40

Somewhere that's totally cut off from reality that

0:46:400:46:45

I just feel a complete sense of relaxation and it's something

0:46:450:46:50

that I can just automatically do without needing any assistance or

0:46:500:46:54

having any issues so I think that is maybe why it is so important to me.

0:46:540:46:58

This is the biggest challenge I have ever put myself to.

0:47:010:47:05

I am hopeful that the blind audition will put me

0:47:070:47:10

on a more level playing field with the other artists rather than

0:47:100:47:16

sometimes feeling at a bit of a disadvantage because I can't see.

# For that second chance

0:47:450:47:48

0:49:220:49:28

CHEERING

0:49:280:49:29

Wow.

0:49:350:49:37

That was incredible. What's your name?

0:49:490:49:51

Andrea Begley.

0:49:510:49:52

Where do you come from?

0:49:520:49:54

Northern Ireland. County Tyrone.

0:49:540:49:57

What's your background?

0:49:570:49:59

I'm 26. I work as a civil servant and I'm also visually impaired

0:49:590:50:05

so I'm not entirely sure whether anyone turned round or not.

0:50:050:50:08

CHEERING

0:50:080:50:10

Well, that's a relief.

0:50:260:50:28

I can assure you, not only we turned around, myself and Tom,

0:50:280:50:32

but the whole of the UK just turned around too.

0:50:320:50:34

CHEERING

0:50:340:50:35

What inspired you to come on The Voice?

0:50:410:50:42

Well, actually, just for the very basic reason that you guys

0:50:420:50:46

couldn't see me and I couldn't see you so...

0:50:460:50:49

For once...

0:50:490:50:50

For once...

0:50:530:50:54

For once I'm on a level playing field with all the other contestants

0:50:540:50:57

so that's the most important part for me.

0:50:570:51:00

CHEERING

0:51:000:51:01

Hear, hear.

0:51:010:51:03

-I'm Tom.

-Hi, Tom.

-Hi.

0:51:060:51:09

And I didn't know whether to push my button or not because it

0:51:090:51:14

seems like you were really something that Danny loves to listen to.

0:51:140:51:18

I know that. But the reason that I did with my button is

0:51:180:51:21

I couldn't help myself because your voice is so beautiful.

0:51:210:51:24

Yeah, it is.

0:51:240:51:26

APPLAUSE

0:51:260:51:27

And I just had to let you know that and I would love it

0:51:300:51:33

if you would be on my team and I would work my guts out for you.

0:51:330:51:38

Thank you.

0:51:380:51:39

CHEERING

0:51:390:51:40

Firstly, I want to just say I applaud how courageous you are

0:51:420:51:46

and how proud of yourself you should be right now.

0:51:460:51:49

I think that your voice is definitely something that

0:51:550:51:58

lends itself to either Team Tom on Team Danny so, girl,

0:51:580:52:01

you better pick your man.

0:52:010:52:03

Tough choice. It's a tough choice.

0:52:030:52:05

It is a tough choice.

0:52:050:52:06

I think we both feel very emotional about the way you sing.

0:52:060:52:10

It's a very emotional thing in that comes over really, really strong.

0:52:100:52:14

-I feel Danny feels the same way so.

-Oh, absolutely. Absolutely.

0:52:140:52:19

My gut instinct and I can only kind of go with my ears

0:52:190:52:21

and what I feel and stuff

0:52:210:52:22

but there's one thing that doesn't lie and that is the hairs

0:52:220:52:25

on my arms and I've used it as a test throughout this whole thing.

0:52:250:52:28

I could coach you impeccably, you know.

0:52:280:52:29

Excellence is what this team is all about.

0:52:290:52:32

Your song choice is impeccable.

0:52:320:52:34

The emotion that you sang with is exactly the same emotion that

0:52:340:52:37

I have strived for myself to try and get and also to

0:52:370:52:40

look for another artists and I really, really believe you have it.

0:52:400:52:43

It would be an absolute honour for me cos I think

0:52:430:52:45

I would be in the arms of an angel, in fairness, if you're on my team.

0:52:450:52:49

Thank you.

0:52:490:52:50

CHEERING

0:52:500:52:53

And I would be really, really sick if you went over to Tom's,

0:52:530:52:56

I really would.

0:52:560:52:58

I might be going out on a limb here but, you know, you are Irish.

0:52:580:53:01

LAUGHTER

0:53:010:53:03

Oh, no, not the Irish card.

0:53:030:53:05

Well, I'm a Celt, you know, myself.

0:53:070:53:10

OK, so this is a question of me making my mind up then.

0:53:100:53:13

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Pick Tom!

0:53:130:53:15

I'm going to opt with...

0:53:320:53:35

Danny.

0:53:470:53:48

CHEERING

0:53:480:53:50

Thank you.

0:53:510:53:52

Give it up. Come on.

0:53:580:53:59

It was wonderful. Wonderful.

0:54:050:54:07

Give it up.

0:54:110:54:13

Wow.

0:54:130:54:14

-Well, that was touching, wasn't it?

-It was amazing.

0:54:190:54:22

Every part of me was, like, electrified through it.

0:54:260:54:28

I knew straightaway, from the first line of that song, I was like,

0:54:280:54:31

"This is something special." Cos the mood just changed in the room.

0:54:310:54:35

That's what a megastar does. They just change it.

0:54:350:54:37

So, wow, great moment.

0:54:370:54:39

Like everyone, 29-year-old Kirsty Crawford has one shot

0:54:430:54:47

but it hasn't been her only shot.

0:54:470:54:49

I know it sounds cheesy to say that you've got a lot riding on it.

0:54:490:54:52

This girl kind of does.

0:54:520:54:54

I have been singing since I was a kid.

0:54:570:55:00

Always with dreams of being in musical theatre

0:55:000:55:02

or on MTV at some point.

0:55:020:55:04

My parents had always hit home the importance of education.

0:55:050:55:08

I got into med school and I ended up taking a gap year of singing

0:55:080:55:15

and I didn't go back.

0:55:150:55:16

I think my parents were more anxious than they were disappointed.

0:55:180:55:21

About 10 years ago, I got signed off the back of a singing competition.

0:55:230:55:28

For many reasons, it didn't quite work out.

0:55:280:55:30

So that really, really did knock my confidence because you think,

0:55:300:55:34

"Have I failed?

0:55:340:55:35

And I was very disappointed in myself

0:55:350:55:38

so for three years I stopped singing.

0:55:380:55:40

The only way I can ever see myself fulfilling everything that

0:55:450:55:49

I love is as a singer but every time I sing,

0:55:490:55:54

I get so nervous and I panic.

0:55:540:55:57

I need to prove to myself I stuck it out through

0:55:590:56:02

the dip in confidence for a reason.

0:56:020:56:04

The nerves aren't going to get the better of me. I'll be fine.

0:56:090:56:13

Come on.

0:56:280:56:29

# Does laughter still discover you?

0:56:370:56:40

# I see through all those smiles that look so right

0:56:400:56:43

# Do you still have the same friends now

0:56:430:56:46

# To smoke away your problems and your lies?

0:56:460:56:49

# How do you remember me?

0:56:490:56:50

# The one that made you laugh until you cried

0:56:520:56:55

# I hope you're feeling happy now

0:56:550:57:00

# Just because you feel good

0:57:000:57:06

# Doesn't make it right

0:57:060:57:09

# Oh, no

0:57:090:57:11

# Just because it feels good

0:57:110:57:17

# Still want you here tonight

0:57:170:57:21

# Want you

0:57:210:57:24

# I want you... #

0:57:240:57:30

Come on, Jessie.

0:57:300:57:31

Come on, Jessie.

0:57:320:57:33

# Oh, yeah

0:57:330:57:36

# Just because you feel good

0:57:360:57:40

# No-oh-oh-oh

0:57:400:57:41

# Doesn't make it right

0:57:410:57:44

# No

0:57:440:57:47

# Just because you feel so good

0:57:470:57:53

# Still want you here, here, here

0:57:530:58:00

# Here tonight. #

0:58:000:58:06

APPLAUSE

0:58:060:58:11

I bet you just want to get out there, don't you,

0:58:180:58:20

and go and give her a hug?

0:58:200:58:22

Please, don't cry. Do you need a hug?

0:58:240:58:26

APPLAUSE

0:58:280:58:30

Let it out.

0:58:350:58:38

Look at all your make-up...

0:58:380:58:41

Can I have a hand cos I'll probably fall.

0:58:440:58:47

APPLAUSE

0:58:500:58:53

-What's your name?

-Kirsty.

0:58:560:58:59

-How old are you, love?

-I'm 29.

0:58:590:59:02

I just completely bottled it at the top of the stairs

0:59:020:59:05

and I hadn't anticipated that.

0:59:050:59:08

I'm just going to say, from female to female, I know how it feels,

0:59:080:59:11

trust me. Nerves are a very un...

0:59:110:59:15

Underestimated thing that people don't realise are very real,

0:59:150:59:18

but I want you to know that you're a great singer. You are.

0:59:180:59:21

But I will say you need to work on your breathing cos that's

0:59:210:59:24

what's going to conquer your nerves and, trust me,

0:59:240:59:26

crying is a normal thing and I'm very happy that your voice just got

0:59:260:59:30

that opportunity and you did, as a person. So, well done.

0:59:300:59:33

APPLAUSE

0:59:330:59:36

The thing is, I bottle it all the time.

0:59:360:59:38

I've been on David Letterman, Ellen, all these shows

0:59:380:59:41

and absolutely made a hames of it but I'm still here.

0:59:410:59:44

I'm still rocking. I'm still rolling.

0:59:440:59:45

You take something like this, you take it on the chin

0:59:450:59:48

-and come back bigger, stronger and better than ever.

-Yeah.

0:59:480:59:50

So, you know, take that with you. Absolutely.

0:59:500:59:53

APPLAUSE

0:59:530:59:55

Just learn from this experience.

0:59:550:59:57

But thank you so much for coming and singing.

0:59:570:59:59

APPLAUSE

0:59:591:00:02

Well done, hon. Bye.

1:00:021:00:05

It's gutting, isn't it?

1:00:111:00:13

You did so well. Please, don't cry.

1:00:181:00:20

My nerves definitely got the better of me.

1:00:201:00:23

I've never been like this before. Never.

1:00:231:00:26

It is quite a big stage though.

1:00:261:00:27

That's a shame though, isn't it?

1:00:271:00:29

I quite simply didn't deserve any turn arounds

1:00:291:00:31

cos that wasn't me on stage. That just... It just wasn't.

1:00:311:00:35

You think it's meant so much to them and sometimes the nerves is

1:00:351:00:38

the power you're trying to put in because it means so much.

1:00:381:00:40

You have to try and push through it.

1:00:401:00:42

The biggest challenge for any act is nerves.

1:00:421:00:44

And, as performers themselves,

1:00:441:00:46

that's something our coaches understand all too well.

1:00:461:00:49

JESSIE: It's hard. It's crazy tough.

1:00:491:00:53

DANNY: It's petrifying.

1:00:531:00:55

They have waited their whole life for this moment.

1:00:551:00:58

Nerves can either give you more strength, that little edge.

1:00:581:01:03

But if your nerves get the better of you, it can destroy you.

1:01:031:01:06

The advice I have for singers that are going to step up there

1:01:091:01:13

is pick a song that you really like to give the best performance

1:01:131:01:17

that you feel that you can give.

1:01:171:01:20

Take a deep breath and remember why you are there. That's all.

1:01:201:01:26

Take advantage of the fact that our backs are turned.

1:01:261:01:29

'Use that as a metaphor. Sneak up on us.'

1:01:291:01:33

-REGGIE:

-But will it be easier said than done for our next act?

1:01:331:01:36

My name is Mike Ward. I'm from Salford. I'm 21 and I'm unemployed.

1:01:391:01:43

'I've got three brothers and one sister.'

1:01:431:01:45

MUSIC: "Lose Yourself" by Eminem

1:01:451:01:46

# If you had

1:01:461:01:48

# One shot

1:01:481:01:50

# One opportunity

1:01:501:01:52

# Would you capture it? #

1:01:521:01:54

'I'm probably the quietest one in the house.'

1:01:541:01:57

My little brother John, he is very confident.

1:01:571:02:01

The opposite of me, basically.

1:02:031:02:05

Life growing up in Salford, there's not a lot to do so me

1:02:051:02:09

and Mike just normally do music together in our room.

1:02:091:02:12

We'll just put a beat on and sit there and write a song.

1:02:121:02:14

-# Taking the first step is always the

-hardest

1:02:141:02:17

-# Writing up your lyrics Getting

-known as an artist. #

1:02:171:02:20

I've never thought about being a professional singer before

1:02:201:02:23

'until my mum told me I was good enough and to give it a go.'

1:02:231:02:26

# Tell me your problems your worries and your dreams

1:02:261:02:29

# When it comes down to it you're the beauty and the beast. #

1:02:291:02:32

You must have real faith in your son then

1:02:321:02:34

if you're the one that put him forward for this.

1:02:341:02:37

I've got every faith in him. He's amazing.

1:02:371:02:39

-Why do you think he didn't do it himself?

-Cos he'd be too nervous.

1:02:391:02:42

He don't believe in himself. He doesn't think he is good enough.

1:02:421:02:46

He says, "I'm all right." That's all he says.

1:02:461:02:48

'I never would have done it by myself.'

1:02:481:02:50

That's it now, pal. Good luck. All the best.

1:02:501:02:52

'I've never really sung in front of public before.

1:02:581:03:01

'I normally keep my music to myself.'

1:03:011:03:03

'My mum believing in me has given me a lot more confidence

1:03:071:03:10

'and I just want to show her I can do it now.'

1:03:101:03:13

You know he can do this.

1:03:211:03:23

# I know you loved him

1:03:421:03:46

# A long time ago

1:03:491:03:52

# Even now in my arms

1:03:551:03:59

# You still want him, I know... #

1:04:011:04:04

I know what you mean about not expecting that voice to come out.

1:04:041:04:07

# But, darling, this time

1:04:071:04:11

# Let your memories die

1:04:131:04:19

# When you hold me tonight

1:04:191:04:23

# Don't close your eyes

1:04:261:04:32

# Don't close your eyes

1:04:321:04:35

# Let it be me

1:04:351:04:38

# Don't pretend it's him

1:04:381:04:40

# In some fantasy

1:04:401:04:44

# Darling, just once

1:04:441:04:47

# Let yesterday go

1:04:471:04:50

# Girl, you'll find more love

CHEERING

1:05:141:05:22

How are you doing, man?

1:05:271:05:29

I can't believe this.

1:05:291:05:30

What's your name and where do you come from?

1:05:341:05:36

My name is Mike Ward, I'm from Manchester.

1:05:361:05:37

CHEERING

1:05:371:05:39

You have an incredible recording voice.

1:05:421:05:44

What type of stuff do you normally listen to?

1:05:441:05:46

Country. Country and western. Everything, really.

1:05:461:05:49

You know what? Country singers, these days, are literally...

1:05:491:05:52

They are very, very, very rare.

1:05:521:05:53

Especially in the UK.

1:05:531:05:55

Literally, the first line, that tone that came out, a lovely,

1:05:551:05:58

current country voice. Cos it's a massive, massive market.

1:05:581:06:01

One of the biggest markets in the world

1:06:011:06:03

and I know exactly how to write a song for that market.

1:06:031:06:05

CHEERING

1:06:051:06:08

You have a very wonderful gift and to turn around

1:06:091:06:12

and see a too-cool-for-school dude doing country, that is, like...

1:06:121:06:16

-That's fresh.

-Look at the belt, man.

1:06:161:06:17

-I know, I see it.

-Come on.

-You really sounded fresh.

1:06:171:06:20

The reason why I didn't turn around is

1:06:201:06:22

because I didn't want it to be confusing again.

1:06:221:06:24

So you have three great choices and I didn't want to confuse it

1:06:241:06:28

cos, you know, Danny is a good choice.

1:06:281:06:31

A great choice. The best choice.

1:06:311:06:34

You have three people to pick from. Not just Danny, so...

1:06:341:06:38

I was like, pow. First one to turn. These lot were, late, man.

1:06:381:06:42

Three completely different coaches but I feel like, I don't know,

1:06:421:06:46

I just feel like I'd be the perfect coach for you just to be able to

1:06:461:06:49

team the country-ness that you have...

1:06:491:06:51

I know that you can probably sing anything. Yeah, I got you.

1:06:511:06:55

-Pick me.

-All right?

-Yes.

1:06:571:06:59

I wanted to hear the whole thing, you know, from start to

1:06:591:07:02

finish before I pressed the button because you never know.

1:07:021:07:05

Some people are strong starting off and they don't get any stronger,

1:07:051:07:08

but you did. To use Will's expression, it was fresh.

1:07:081:07:13

Because, you're the first country singer we have had...

1:07:131:07:17

That was the dopest thing in the history of, like, freshness!

1:07:171:07:20

From Tom Jones!

1:07:201:07:22

But, you know, I feel I know what I'm talking about

1:07:221:07:25

because I've had experience in this area of music.

1:07:251:07:31

I feel I'm the one for you.

1:07:321:07:34

JESSIE J: Right now, it's hard work time.

1:07:341:07:36

-IN MOCK DRAMATIC VOICE:

-You have three choices!

1:07:361:07:39

Jessie J: I'm being real with you, like...

1:07:391:07:41

Danny in The Script! Who is an Irish pop band, but also country!

1:07:411:07:46

The classic, Silver Bear.

1:07:471:07:49

Who has worked with every single artist, ever, walking on the planet!

1:07:501:07:54

APPLAUSE

1:07:541:07:57

And Jessie J.

1:07:581:08:00

Jessie J who has the most incredible vocal acrobats

1:08:011:08:06

the world has ever seen.

1:08:061:08:08

You have a choice to make.

1:08:101:08:13

Choose wrong and you die!

1:08:131:08:14

LAUGHTER AND CHEERING

1:08:141:08:17

-Brilliant!

-It's up to you.

1:08:221:08:25

The three of us love you.

1:08:251:08:27

Anyway...

1:08:281:08:29

CROWD SHOUT OUT NAMES

1:08:291:08:32

Who will he choose? The crowd is screaming.

1:08:361:08:40

He seems confused!

1:08:421:08:44

Don't be confused.

1:08:451:08:47

Who will you choose?

1:08:481:08:50

# Choose wrong, you lose. #

1:08:511:08:53

JESSIE J: It's your choice, it's your choice.

1:08:551:08:58

I'm telling you right now, this is the place.

1:08:581:09:00

This is the place, right here.

1:09:011:09:02

It's your choice, don't listen to them.

1:09:041:09:06

CROWD CHANT VARIOUS NAMES

1:09:061:09:09

Being a massive country fan...

1:09:221:09:25

-..Tom!

-Yes!

1:09:281:09:30

He chose the Silver Bear!

1:09:321:09:34

You will be safe in the hands of the wizard!

1:09:351:09:38

You picked well. Nice to meet you.

1:09:461:09:48

APPLAUSE

1:09:481:09:50

Didn't I tell you?

1:09:581:10:01

To see, like, a young dude from Manchester,

1:10:011:10:04

looking like hip-hop Eminem,

1:10:041:10:05

that was fresh, that was a refreshing take on country.

1:10:051:10:08

-Can you actually believe it?

-I can't believe it.

1:10:081:10:10

Three of the world's biggest stars just turned around.

1:10:101:10:13

They didn't just want you, they were fighting over you.

1:10:131:10:15

I would have loved to have had him on my team.

1:10:151:10:17

I am so happy, I am actually rooting for him.

1:10:171:10:20

Thank you, Mum. For making me audition.

1:10:201:10:23

Aw!

1:10:231:10:24

I am extremely excited about having Mike on my team.

1:10:241:10:28

It's that vibrato that's really fast.

1:10:301:10:33

-HE VIBRATOS:

-# Ho, ho, like this! #

1:10:331:10:37

will.i.am singing country music, wow!

1:10:411:10:44

IN A COUNTRY STYLE: # I want to scream, and shout

1:10:461:10:48

# And let it all out. #

1:10:481:10:50

LAUGHTER

1:10:501:10:52

Let's step back in time now with our next hopeful, Katie Benbow.

1:10:551:10:59

My bedroom is vintage everything.

1:11:001:11:03

My biggest fan when I was growing up was my granddad,

1:11:071:11:10

until, unfortunately, he passed away.

1:11:101:11:12

I was so interested in his life and the whole 1940s era.

1:11:121:11:17

Old music really makes me feel safe,

1:11:181:11:22

because it's been passed through, on to my granddad, on to my mum.

1:11:221:11:26

There's somebody who's missing, isn't there, who's meant to be here?

1:11:261:11:29

Who's that?

1:11:291:11:30

Yeah, my grandma, she's going to come later on.

1:11:301:11:33

She's really, really poorly at the moment so obviously

1:11:331:11:37

I'm so over the moon that she gets to watch me audition.

1:11:371:11:40

She always tells me that me following my dreams is what keeps her

1:11:451:11:48

-going and stuff, it gives her a boost.

-I'm so happy to meet you!

1:11:481:11:54

-Thank you!

-I'm so glad you're here! I've heard all about you.

1:11:541:11:56

She's really ill, so for her to be able to see me,

1:11:561:12:00

if it's just for this one last time, would be really, really lovely.

1:12:001:12:04

Come on, Kate. Oh, my God.

1:12:061:12:08

Oh, my God.

1:14:041:14:06

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:14:061:14:09

DANNY: Hi, how are you?

1:14:211:14:22

Oh, my God.

1:14:221:14:24

Sorry! I did not expect that to happen at all.

1:14:241:14:28

Hiya, I'm Katie Benbow.

1:14:281:14:30

Almost like a Goth style, you have tattoos and stuff.

1:14:301:14:33

Yeah, this is actually for my grandma, this tattoo.

1:14:331:14:37

- Beautiful. - She's really poorly

1:14:371:14:38

and actually she's actually been able to make it here.

1:14:381:14:41

And I'm really sorry it's got nothing to do with singing,

1:14:411:14:43

but, Tom, would you be able to give my grandma a wink?

1:14:431:14:46

LAUGHTER AND CHEERING

1:14:461:14:49

-What's your grandmother's name?

-She's called Mary.

1:14:501:14:53

# Down the road I look

1:14:531:14:55

# And there runs Mary. #

1:14:551:14:56

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:14:561:14:59

Now, what brought you to The Voice?

1:15:051:15:07

It's my dream and I saw the show last year and I fell in love.

1:15:091:15:13

I've never had any vocal training...

1:15:131:15:16

JESSIE J: You will now, girl!

1:15:161:15:18

I can't believe it, it doesn't even feel real right now.

1:15:201:15:23

You know what? We were both hovering over, but I stood back and went,

1:15:231:15:26

"You can coach her." I'm just glad you're with the right person.

1:15:261:15:29

You obviously have a great look now that I've turned around,

1:15:291:15:32

- And I wish I had... - Thank you.

1:15:321:15:33

Thank you very much for singing for us.

1:15:331:15:36

CHEERING

1:15:361:15:38

JESSIE J: OK, so...

1:15:381:15:40

Your voice is great, it has so much potential.

1:15:401:15:43

But you push your vocal into your throat,

1:15:431:15:45

so you go,

1:15:451:15:46

# Birds flyin' hi-i-i-igh

1:15:461:15:48

# You know how I feel. #

1:15:481:15:50

And you go here.

1:15:501:15:52

It's true, though! Someone's laughing at me!

1:15:521:15:54

But there's so many things I can teach you.

1:15:541:15:56

This is beyond...

1:15:561:15:57

You're my first girl in my group, so welcome.

1:15:571:16:00

Thank you!

1:16:001:16:01

Team Jessie, baby! Yeah!

1:16:011:16:03

CHEERING

1:16:031:16:05

Come and give me a hug!

1:16:051:16:06

I'm going to work you hard, you've got a lot of potential. Well done.

1:16:091:16:13

Well done.

1:16:131:16:14

That's why I'm here.

1:16:201:16:21

THEY ALL CHEER

1:16:241:16:27

Are you proud of me, Grandma?

1:16:321:16:33

You were beautiful.

1:16:351:16:37

Beautiful.

1:16:371:16:39

-Did you like your wink off Tom?

-Yeah!

-And he sang to you!

1:16:391:16:44

Everyone is here hoping for a shot at a successful music career,

1:16:471:16:51

but back in the '90s, our next act had just that

1:16:511:16:54

and now he wants it back.

1:16:541:16:55

-'It's former child star, Kavanagh.' Hello there, Kav!

-Reggie!

1:16:551:16:59

-Welcome to The Voice.

-Thank you.

-It's been a while, hasn't it?

1:16:591:17:02

-It has.

-I Can Make You Feel Good, that was your song.

1:17:021:17:05

That was the big hit.

1:17:051:17:06

-# I can make you feel good

-I can make you feel good

1:17:061:17:10

# Just say I really want you... #

1:17:101:17:13

When I was 16, I was very lucky to be signed by Take That's manager,

1:17:131:17:17

I was working in McDonalds at the time and had just left school

1:17:171:17:20

and I knew that he was based in Manchester

1:17:201:17:22

and I cheekily went down there with a demo tape in hand

1:17:221:17:25

and banged on his door and he signed me up. My life totally changed.

1:17:251:17:29

Looking back now, you go, "Wow, did that really happen?

1:17:291:17:34

I was travelling the world, I was on Top Of The Pops,

1:17:341:17:36

on the front cover of magazines. I was living the dream.

1:17:361:17:39

-Didn't you win a Smash Hits Poll Winners Award?

-I did!

1:17:391:17:42

Kavanagh, sir, here is your award for Best Male Singer!

1:17:421:17:46

CHEERING

1:17:461:17:48

Who came second and third?

1:17:501:17:51

Peter Andre and Gary Barlow!

1:17:511:17:54

Yes!

1:17:541:17:55

I think coming from nothing, basically, it was great to be able

1:17:551:17:59

to take care of my mum and dad and get them a place.

1:17:591:18:01

That's probably the best thing out of it all that happened.

1:18:011:18:04

When I was 21 I decided then I was going to be an actor.

1:18:041:18:08

I went to live in America.

1:18:081:18:10

And I got an agent and I got the manager, I had a lot of money.

1:18:101:18:13

I did a few little things here and there,

1:18:131:18:16

but nothing really has got me back on the map, you know?

1:18:161:18:20

I came back to England and it's been kind of quiet for me, you know?

1:18:201:18:24

I've had massive highs, massive highs.

1:18:271:18:30

And some dark lows, you know.

1:18:301:18:32

But there's something in me that's still keeping me wanting to do this.

1:18:321:18:36

I am nervous, yeah, because now I have to go and prove myself

1:18:381:18:42

all over again and take that risk of them not turning around.

1:18:421:18:46

I do really want this, yeah.

1:20:431:20:47

How are you?

1:21:041:21:06

-Hello.

-What's your name?

1:21:061:21:08

Anthony Kavanagh, but people call me Kav.

1:21:081:21:09

Kav? Kavanagh? Kavanagh like Kavanagh Kavanagh?

1:21:091:21:13

-Kavanagh, yeah.

-Kavanagh, I know you.

-I know.

1:21:131:21:16

-Wow. Um...

-Where do you guys know each other from?

1:21:171:21:21

-Kavanagh used to be a massive artist.

-Yeah, back in the day. The '90s.

1:21:211:21:26

Yeah, man. I was in a band, My Town, back then.

1:21:261:21:29

I remember we were in a dressing room and...

1:21:291:21:32

I think we were on tour with maybe Boyzone or somebody,

1:21:321:21:35

and you were about 12 years old, playing your guitar.

1:21:351:21:37

And I thought, "That guy's really talented."

1:21:371:21:40

I was about 16 at the time.

1:21:401:21:41

I bought your record years ago as well.

1:21:411:21:43

-Thank you.

-No worries.

1:21:431:21:45

APPLAUSE

1:21:451:21:47

DANNY: You're a professional.

1:21:471:21:49

I thought you were pitchier than I know you're capable of.

1:21:491:21:53

I've just not done this for a long time, so I think

1:21:531:21:55

the nerves got the better of me, basically. But, you know.

1:21:551:21:59

Not saying you have a bad voice. This guy can sing.

1:21:591:22:01

He can really sing.

1:22:011:22:02

APPLAUSE

1:22:021:22:04

That was the only reason why I didn't turn around.

1:22:061:22:08

-No worries.

-Great performance.

1:22:081:22:10

-Thank you.

-Well done.

1:22:101:22:11

Cheers, thanks.

1:22:111:22:12

APPLAUSE

1:22:121:22:14

I thought your tone was great. You have a lovely tone to your voice,

1:22:141:22:19

but you were definitely flat coming in

1:22:191:22:21

on about the first four to five notes, I would think.

1:22:211:22:24

Almost like you were in another key.

1:22:241:22:27

But the overall sound of your voice, I really liked,

1:22:271:22:29

but the pitch thing, you know...

1:22:291:22:32

That was a shame.

1:22:321:22:34

No problem, thanks for the chance.

1:22:341:22:36

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:22:361:22:39

The really strange thing about this show is that whatever's gone on

1:22:481:22:52

in a person's life has no relevance when you get on that stage.

1:22:521:22:55

You can be the most consummate performer, but you get up there,

1:22:551:22:58

you see the names on the back, the crowd and everybody goes "whack".

1:22:581:23:01

Really, really hard to see a mate not get through, you know.

1:23:011:23:05

Last up, 33-year-old charity worker Matt Henry.

1:23:081:23:12

The Dogs Trust is a charity that helps to rehome stray

1:23:141:23:18

or abandoned dogs.

1:23:181:23:20

Not only does it do that but we also work with young people

1:23:201:23:24

in the community by training them to help care for the dogs.

1:23:241:23:28

It is very much a change in people's life, helping them to see that

1:23:281:23:32

there is more to life than just living on that street,

1:23:321:23:36

in that neighbourhood, in that gang.

1:23:361:23:38

I've been singing since I was young. I was brought up in a church,

1:23:391:23:42

left church when I was 18 so I was always singing in gospel choirs.

1:23:421:23:46

Leaving there, I went on to do various shows in the West End,

1:23:461:23:49

one being The Lion King.

1:23:491:23:51

But when people ask me, "Do you sing professionally?" I don't know,

1:23:511:23:54

cos what is professional singing?

1:23:541:23:56

'I don't gig, that's what I wish I did.

1:23:591:24:02

'I wish I had that confidence to get up and sing with everybody else.

1:24:021:24:05

'Not having the confidence and the belief in my ability,

1:24:081:24:11

'I think that's kind of stopped me.

1:24:111:24:14

'I feel like I'm free-falling at the moment.

1:24:171:24:19

'It's been a long time coming.

1:24:191:24:21

'And I think it's time for me to step up.'

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:26:281:26:31

He's got four!

1:26:321:26:34

Dude, fantastic.

1:26:531:26:55

Take it in... Take it in.

1:26:551:26:58

Huh?

1:27:061:27:07

He looks a lot like you.

1:27:071:27:08

I know, that's why I was looking at him!

1:27:081:27:10

LAUGHTER

1:27:101:27:12

Give him the glasses. Come on.

1:27:121:27:13

-Come on! Do it!

-Give him the glasses.

1:27:131:27:16

LAUGHTER

1:27:161:27:18

Come on now.

1:27:181:27:20

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:27:221:27:24

I'm feeling these.

1:27:261:27:27

It's back to business.

1:27:271:27:29

Wooh!

1:27:291:27:30

What's your name?

1:27:301:27:32

My name's Matt Henry.

1:27:321:27:33

You look more like my brother than my brother.

1:27:331:27:36

LAUGHTER

1:27:361:27:37

That's fresh. Just don't do the angular step hair.

1:27:371:27:41

LAUGHTER

1:27:411:27:42

You sing magnificent.

1:27:431:27:46

APPLAUSE

1:27:461:27:47

Song choice is very important and the lyrics mean something,

1:27:491:27:53

and what was the main lyric in your song?

1:27:531:27:55

-I've been saved.

-By...?

1:27:551:27:57

A woman.

1:27:571:27:58

There you go.

1:27:581:27:59

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

1:27:591:28:01

-That was clever.

-That was good, that was good.

1:28:041:28:08

That was pretty cool.

1:28:081:28:09

It's freaking me out a bit. Can you take the glasses off?

1:28:091:28:11

-Yeah, yeah. I can't see!

-It's like two Wills.

1:28:111:28:13

-I'll give you these back.

-Yeah, yeah.

1:28:131:28:15

I don't want it to influence your choice.

1:28:151:28:17

LAUGHTER

1:28:201:28:21

I'm telling you now.

1:28:211:28:23

Seeing you up close...

1:28:231:28:24

No, no, for real.

1:28:241:28:26

-It's the smile, it's the smile.

-No, but it's like the frog eyes.

1:28:261:28:29

Yeah!

1:28:291:28:30

I never wanted to admit it but...

1:28:311:28:33

Looking at your eyes, I'm like, you look like a frog!

1:28:331:28:36

LAUGHTER

1:28:361:28:38

First of all, I love that song.

1:28:411:28:44

And for you to sing that song is very courageous to start with

1:28:441:28:48

and you sang the hell out of it. You really did.

1:28:481:28:52

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:28:521:28:53

Again for the exact same reasons, not only did you sing that song,

1:28:581:29:01

I thought you sang it better than Ray and I'm a big Ray fan.

1:29:011:29:04

I thought the angst, you put a different spin on it.

1:29:041:29:06

What can I offer? I think my experience and wisdom will carry you

1:29:061:29:10

straight through to the finals. Team Danny all the way.

1:29:101:29:13

APPLAUSE

1:29:131:29:14

I've been influenced by a lot of people.

1:29:161:29:18

I've not only listened TO them, but I've sang WITH them.

1:29:181:29:23

I mean, I've sang with Pavarotti.

1:29:231:29:26

So, you know...

1:29:261:29:28

I'm not only 72 years old, I have 72 years of experience,

1:29:281:29:32

so you're going to get 72 years of that.

1:29:321:29:36

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:29:361:29:37

For me, I think people can often think that I just listen to like

1:29:401:29:43

R'n'B and pop music. I like listening to gospel music.

1:29:431:29:47

I'm a huge Kim Burrell fan. Yes, like, all day long.

1:29:471:29:50

DANNY: I like her too.

1:29:501:29:52

If me and you were singing Kim Burrell together, son...!

1:29:541:29:57

-We'll be having church.

-HE SQUEALS

1:29:571:30:01

Church all day long, yes.

1:30:011:30:04

APPLAUSE

1:30:041:30:06

It's the honest truth, my mom and my grandma are my biggest influences,

1:30:071:30:11

and from there, dreams, right, cos without those I wouldn't be here

1:30:111:30:18

and I'm living for my mom, that's it.

1:30:181:30:21

Everything I'm doing is for her so therefore I will be guided by

1:30:211:30:25

those principles and will not be strayed by any storm or tornado

1:30:251:30:30

that will veer me off course.

1:30:301:30:32

I am a palm tree. They never fall.

1:30:321:30:34

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:30:361:30:38

What?

1:30:411:30:42

Well, thank you guys for turning round first of all.

1:30:461:30:49

I've been dreaming about this moment for...

1:30:491:30:52

..you'll never know how long.

1:30:541:30:56

And to take this opportunity now to kind of think about what

1:30:561:30:59

you guys have said, and, um...

1:30:591:31:03

I think I'm going to go...

1:31:061:31:08

I think I'm going to go with Will.

1:31:101:31:12

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:31:121:31:15

-Well done.

-Thank you.

1:31:201:31:22

Oh, my God!

1:31:301:31:32

Well done.

1:31:341:31:35

Yes.

1:31:351:31:36

Wooh!

1:31:381:31:39

SCREAMING

1:31:411:31:43

Will just went straight...

1:31:431:31:45

HE EXHALES

1:31:451:31:47

He went straight to family,

1:31:471:31:48

and your family has to be your inspiration.

1:31:481:31:51

See I don't know my dad, right.

1:31:511:31:53

So I'm thinking maybe his dad is my dad!

1:31:531:31:56

It's going to be dope!

1:31:561:31:58

Oh, God!

1:31:591:32:01

After the first day of fierce competition,

1:32:021:32:05

the coaches' battle to build their teams has begun.

1:32:051:32:09

Jessie is off to a great start with three acts.

1:32:091:32:11

The competitive Jessie sat back a bit last series

1:32:111:32:14

but I'm not messing about this year.

1:32:141:32:16

Will is close behind her with two.

1:32:161:32:19

I don't push the button except for exceptional exceptions.

1:32:191:32:23

And both Danny and Tom have secured one act each.

1:32:251:32:28

After day one, the gloves are off.

1:32:281:32:30

The banter's started and it's game on. Bring it on.

1:32:301:32:33

Next week - the blind auditions continue.

1:32:341:32:37

More incredible singers fight for their place in the competition.

1:32:381:32:42

And as the battle to build their teams intensifies,

1:32:421:32:45

the coaches go all out to win.

1:32:451:32:47

Oh, my God!

1:32:501:32:51

The Voice returns, as the search for the UK's next exciting vocal talent begins. Unconcerned with appearance, the auditions are about one thing and one thing only: the voice.

The series kicks off with a spectacular group performance by the four megastar coaches - Jessie J, will.i.am, Danny O'Donoghue and Sir Tom Jones, and the first of the blind auditions.

The famous red chairs are back and turning as each coach carefully picks the voices he or she wants to work with, based solely on what they hear and their musical intuition - and with the chance to be personally mentored and taught by four music superstars, the artists will be hoping that at least one coach hits their famous button and turns their chair for them.

Each coach must form a team of 12 artists, and they'll use every trick, every name drop, every statistic to persuade the very best to join their team.

Once each coach has a full team, they will advise and train them through the remaining stages until one artist is named 'The Voice UK'.
