'The Voice UK' coach Tom Jones



The silver bear - often the most reluctant to take a spin - surprised this week by landing three acts. 18-year-old beauty consultant Emma Jade Garbutt won over Sir Tom at the last second with her country-tinged 'Sweet Child O'Mine' - is she on the path to Nashville... and stardom?

One of the most memorable auditionees this week was Ragsy - the Welshman's powerful take on Coldplay's 'The Scientist' sent Tom and Danny both spinning, but in the end, Welsh solidarity won through. Does the lovable scruffbag have what it takes to top the charts?

Tom is like "velcro" to Welsh people, and also landed 25-year-old singer Alys Williams, who failed to win a spot last year but stormed the show this time round with her take on Mumford & Sons hit 'The Cave'.

Torn between all four coaches, Alys eventually... *eventually* picked Sir Tom. It's looking like she might be Leanne Mitchell mark two - but is that a good or a bad thing?

'The Voice UK' coach Jessie J



Jessie's first pick this week was 30-year-old fitness trainer Trevor Francis, who's backed the likes of P Diddy, Mariah Carey, Tinie Tempah and Florence Welch on the stage and opened the show strongly, wowing all four coaches with his performance of Sam Cooke's 1964 hit 'A Change Is Gonna Come'.

Providing a few 'thrills' on Team Jessie, meanwhile, was stylish 23-year-old Alex Buchanan - his energetic performance of 'Don't Wake Me Up' won over the quartet, but are his vocals strong enough to win The Voice?

It was love at first sight for Danny when Nadeem Leigh walked on stage, impressing the coaches and the audience with his mash-up of 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For' and 'The Blower's Daughter'.

A smitten Danny threatened murder to keep his mitts on Nadeem and even promised to text U2 - has The Voice found what it's looking for in Nadeem?

'Candy', meanwhile, was an apt song choice for sickly sweet lovebirds Smith & Jones - who may or may not have been a couple. We're not sure - the topic wasn't really addressed.

The winsome twosome charmed Danny - can they go further than Matt and Sueleen and actually win the thing?

'The Voice' UK coach will.i.am



Just one successful spin for will.i.am this week, but a strong pick. Les Mis star Liam Tamne - who dedicated his performance of 'This Woman's Work' to his late grandmother - blew away all four coaches before opting to join up with the dope one.

A lovestruck Jessie was devastated to miss out on Liam, and his vocals are undoubtedly powerful - he's certainly a strong contender to go all the way.
