“Forget everything you’ve heard about The Voice spelling the end of nasty talent shows. Those rumours were premature and, it turns out, ridiculously unfounded. Anyone who witnessed this weekend’s two-part battle round will have seen that The Voice has a heart as black as anything Simon Cowell has ever created…….But that’s not to say that battle round was an abject failure. It’s already helped to uncover some legitimately exciting talent in the form of Jaz Ellington, Becky Hill and Ruth Brown.”
Stuart Heritage commenting how the Voice battle round dispelled the show’s reputation for niceness.

“Hammond can consider herself unlucky to be eliminated, as can Scouse waiter Jay Norton, who lost out to angelic-voiced gospel crooner Jaz Ellington.”

“The over-punctuated producer [will.i.am] was also was the last coach standing when the other three had filled their teams. He held his nerve admirably, meaning he snapped up the very last auditionee – soaring, gospel-tinged Jaz Ellington, who reduced two judges to tears with his acapella encore of Ordinary People, which provided a suitably emotional climax. Expect to see that song shoot up the download chart after its two airings tonight. -”
Michael Hogan reviews the fourth and final week of the blind auditions on BBC1’s The Voice.
