Relatives of Adele and McFly’s Danny Jones made their mark on The Voice UK on Saturday night as blind auditions continued.
Georgia Harrup – who is the cousin of the Rolling In The Deep singer – and Vicky Jones both won themselves places on Tom Jones’s team after wowing the judges with their efforts on the BBC One show.
And Georgia – who according to reports shed eight stone before she appeared on the show – said she was in ‘total awe’ of her cousin.
However she added: “I want to be known for me, for my voice and for my sound and I am reaady to show the world what I am made of” – which she did with her impressive version of Ray Charles’s Hallelujah I Love Her.
Vicky, meanwhile, took a rockier approach with her rendition of Bon Jovi’s Bed Of Roses – but only won herself a team place in the nick of time when both Tom and Kylie Minogue turned round at the very last minute.
“I would be a bag of nerves up there but you didn’t sound nervous one little bit,” Kylie told her afterwards.
Others making a big impression on Saturday night included Myles Evans – who admitted he was singing in public for the first time, but overcame nerves to win a place on Ricky Wilson’s team – and cinema worker Iesher Haughton, who joined Team will.i.am.
The 19-year-old was one of the first contestants this series to entice all four judges to turn round – with will spinning his chair to face her before she had even finished the first note of her song.
“The first note, I didn’t waste any time, so I would like to have you on my team to give you my perspective and go through this journey together,” he told her afterwards. “It’ll be dope.”
Mum-of four Leverne Scott-Roberts also scored a full house from the panel – with Kylie telling her “You sound like you can do anything,” before she eventually opted for Tom Jones’ team.
Meanwhile beatboxer Si Genaro came very close to become the show’s first ever ‘novelty’ act after his energetic rendition of Men At Work’s Down Under had the crowd on their feet.
But despite his best efforts the judges failed to turn for him – with Ricky calling his performance “too energetic” – before he turned the tables on the judges and sat in will’s chair to deliver his verdict on the rapper.
The Voice UK continues on BBC One next Saturday night with the fourth round of blind auditions.
