The Voice UK 5: Blind Auditions (4)

The Voice UK 5

Now I’m back in the train as I got really entertained and impressed with the pool of talent on tonight’s episode. There were clear stand outs and some potential artists that I think will do well in the course of the competition.

Paloma Faith scored a big one tonight!

Now on to the episode.

Aliesha Lobuczek
Breakfree
[Team PALOMA]

– Gorgeous! Look the version wasn’t at all perfect but for starter of the episode, Aliesha somehow set the bar high especially with a string of lackluster past episodes already. There is a delicate quality to her delivery that I like. Her tone is lovely and she put on some dynamics to it. Sure she needed more breathing and vocal support on parts, but this could still work. 7

Alaric Green
Broken Vow
[Team RICKY]

– Alaric has surprised me especially with his look and style, I never expected that big old, classic voice he has in him. And he sang the hell of the song quite nice with his perfect notes. One thing though, the performance as it progress felt sleepy and tired. But then again this is unexpected, truly you should never judge a book by its cover. 6.5

Faheem
Marvin Gaye
[Team WILL]

– He begins with a solid case back up with a gorgeous tone. His transitions were nice and there is confidence in his delivery. He hit a couple of wobbly notes towards the end but I would take this more than half of the previous auditions from the previous episodes. 7

J Sealy
The First Cut Is The Deepest
[Team BOY]

– His voice is decent with some phrasing that sounded muddled in parts. The first half sounded nice but the performance itself didn’t really go anywhere. 6

Steve Devereaux
The Lady Is A Tramp
[Team PALOMA]

– Not that bad. A bit old fashioned and it sounded too lounge-y for me. 5

Heather Cameron-Hayes
Life On Mars
[Team BOY]

– Nerves. Nerves. Nerves. Her pitch was all over the place. She hit so many bad notes. This is miserable. 3

Kevin Simm
Chandelier
[Team PALOMA]

– Holy cow! Sia’s Chandelier is so difficult to sing – ask Sia herself and all those female artists who covered if – let alone in the male prospective. But Kevin just smashed it. There’s ease to his delivery that is gritty but still pop. His vocals sounded gorgeous. There is control in there. His phrasing sounded nice. This is really good! 8
