Everything is relative on The Voice when Will.i.am confuses one of the show’s would-be singing stars with his aunt.
Blackpool teenager Emily Adams tries to impress the coaches on the hit BBC1 show with her version of Etta James’s I’d Rather Go Blind.
The US star gets a shock when he sees the 18-year-old student, telling her: “Wow, I wasn’t expecting that visually, from what I heard.”
Asked what he was expecting, the star says: “My aunt, yeah, the heavier one.”
The show is even more of a family affair when sisters Leanne and Natalie, from Newcastle, impress Kylie Minogue.
The Australian pop princess says: “Listening to the girls made me think of Danni. There’s a sisterly bond that is unlike anything else so it was really cute to see that and it did remind me of my sister.”
Another singer, Amelia O’Connell, has her family to support her with one notable exception – her father.
The 16-year-old from Liverpool, who performs folk song The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, says: “Today I’ve brought my family with me, but my dad can’t come today.
“He’s actually in Germany working on a tribute show. Basically he does shows as Tom Jones. I’ve seen him once and it was the most embarrassing time of my life.”
The Voice continues at 7.10pm on BBC1.
