The Voice UK 5: Battles (2)

The Voice UK 5 - Battle Rounds

It’s the final set of battles tonight before we head on to the Knockouts. Paloma and Boy George were able to use their two (2) saves and that leaves us with Ricky and Will using their last save for tonight.

Will we have shocking decisions and wise save? Probably! Haha.

Here is a rundown of tonight’s battles!

Kevin Simm [vs] Faith Nelson
Spotlight
Team PALOMA

– Clearly the song choice is more on Faith’s alley but I am glad on how well Kevin held his own. Faith started pretty but she still had some pitch issues here and then. Kevin delivered a pretty spot on performance not until he tried to hit those high notes and he fell sharp. 7

WINNER: Faith Nelson
STOLEN: Kevin Simm (Team Ricky)
ELIMINATED:

Chase Morton [vs] J Sealy
I Can See Clearly Now
Team BOY

– Eh. Bland. 5

WINNER: Chase Morton
STOLEN:
ELIMINATED: J Sealy

Vivica Jade [vs] Lauren Lapsley-Browne
Love Shack
Team WILL

– Vivica had the better pitch but Lauren looked more marketable. This is an all over the place battle in terms of vocals. 5

WINNER: Lauren Lapsley-Browne
STOLEN:
ELIMINATED: Vivica Jade

Kagan [vs] David Barnes
King
Team RICKY

– I am surprised with Ricky’s choice. Sure Kagan had this sweet voice but it is almost so thin that I really find it hard to enjoy. David delivered a better vocal performance, for me. 6.5

WINNER: Kagan
STOLEN:
ELIMINATED: David Barnes

Vangelis Polydorou [vs] Melissa Cavanagh
One
Team BOY

– Vangelis! I love his voice and how spot on his delivery is. Melissa is shaky. 6.5

WINNER: Vangelis Polydorou
STOLEN:
ELIMINATED: Melissa Cavanagh

Janine Dyer [vs] Mia Sylvester
Ain’t No Other Man
Team RICKY

– This lacked that sass and rhythm. At least for Mia who is all bombast but her rhythm is just off. Janine outsang her but she sounded off pitch in parts. 5.5

WINNER: Mia Sylvester
STOLEN:
ELIMINATED: Janine Dyer

Tom Rickels [vs] Colleen Gormley
Everything She Wants
Team WILL

– No doubt, Tom Rickels. I think Colleen is just a cannon fodder. Tom reminds me of Harry Styles during his young, X Factor UK days. 6

WINNER: Tom Rickels
STOLEN:
ELIMINATED: Colleen Gormley

Deano Boroczky [vs] Megan Reece
I Try
Team PALOMA

– I think this was a solid albeit lacking of stage presence battle. Both sounded pretty and strong. Deano though hit better notes than Megan but I digress. 7

WINNER: Deano Boroczky
STOLEN:
ELIMINATED: Megan Reece

Leighton Jones [vs] Eli Cripps
If I Were Your Woman
Team BOY

– Again, this is a solid battle. Nothing groundbreaking but both singers shine on their own and still maintaining that work together feel that made this battle quite compelling. 7

WINNER: Leighton Jones
STOLEN: Eli Cripps (Team Will)
ELIMINATED:

Mari Marli [vs] Lyrickal
Like I Can
Team WILL

– How in the world Will chose Lyrickal is beyond explanation. Although, I didn’t really care for both, Mari delivered better vocals despite some muddled verses and overwrought stylings. 5

WINNER: Lyrickal
STOLEN:
ELIMINATED: Mari Marli

Aine Carroll [vs] Rachel Ann
This Is The Last Time
Team RICKY

– Okay, I thought this started really good and interesting but that dolphin whistle from Rachel Ann felt unnecessary and somehow it shook Aine’s confidence that made this battle uneven. The first half was gorgeous, the second half was terrible. 6.5

WINNER: Rachel Ann
STOLEN:
ELIMINATED: Aine Carroll

Beth Morris [vs] Steve Devereaux
Crazy
Team PALOMA

– Cannon fodders! I feel bad for Steve as I feel like he was uncomfortable with the song. Clearly, Beth outperformed him. 5

WINNER: Beth Morris
STOLEN:
ELIMINATED: Steve Devereaux
