Semi-finals! Semi finals! Did we mention that it’s the semi-finals? Wow, what a show…
The final eight polished their weapons (or voices, whatever) to fight for a place in the finals and Will briefly waved his Olympic torch at everyone. With one act from each team definitely leaving, the semi-finalists went hard to avoid going home.
First up was one-woman-choir Ruth Brown. She sang ‘The Voice Within’, on The Voice, and her voice rattled the ceiling. An emotional performance, Ruth shed her soul and some tears. We may have got a little choked up too (but don’t tell anyone).
Vince Kidd ditched his trademark tie-die for an all-black ensemble but he flaunted his trademark soul singing ‘Back To Black’.
Max Milner looked every inch the front man as he sung The Police classic, ‘Every Breath You Take’. He made it look as easy and natural as breathing itself and at one point, Danny looked genuinely love-struck. Awww.
Jaz invited his children’s choir to sing ‘Let It Be’ with him. It was a sermon of soul and made us feel all warm inside. Shazam!
Leanne Mitchell looked pretty in pink and tackled a Whitney song without of a trace of fear. What a woman. She hit every note in existence and had the coaches on their feet. Job well done Leanne!
Becky Hill looked elegant and looked a star singing er, ‘Like A Star’. A pleasant surprise from the little pocket rocket, she proved her versatility and impressed all of the coaches.
Bo Bruce twirled around in ticker tape and tickled our eardrums with her cashmere voice. Singing ‘Charlie Brown’ she stepped things up a gear and smashed it. Bo selecta! What? If Jessie can say it…
Tyler James avoided getting tossed into a salad of ballads and took an almighty risk by singing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. He can pull off wearing pink and he can pull off a Queen song. Amazing.
And to top everything off, Cheryl treated us to a world premiere performance of her new single ‘Call My Name’. Her dive into the throng of dancers, her moves… Just everything was WOWEE.
Phew! We’ll be twiddling our fingers (i.e. watching the performances over and over again) until tomorrow’s results show.
See you then!
