Singers ejected from 'The Voice UK'07/05/2012 - 09:56:10
Hannah Berney and Ruth Ann St Luce are the latest contestants to be booted out of 'The Voice UK'.
Five artists from mentor Jessie J’s team sang on last night’s live show, along with five performers from Danny O’Donoghue’s team.
Three were saved by public vote and automatically went through to the next round. It was then up to Jessie and Danny to choose which of their own two acts to save.
The Script singer Danny said none of his contestants deserved to leave the competition but chose to save Max Milner, 21, who sang Tom Petty’s 'Free Fallin’, over 21-year-old Hannah, who sang the Justin Timberlake hit 'Cry Me A River'.
After hearing the news Hannah, from Chepstow, nodded before hugging Max and saying: “This has probably been the best year of my life, I turned 21, I’ve sung for the Queen, I’ve done live television. I know what I’m doing with my life.”
Jessie opted to get rid of Ruth Anne, who performed a version of 'Promise This' by Cheryl Cole. She chose to save 34-year-old Toni Warne, from Great Yarmouth, who sang Tina Turner’s 'Proud Mary'.
Ruth Ann looked dejected when she heard the news, saying: “It’s been a crazy rollercoaster doing this show, I’ve learned so much from Jessie – in fact from all of you guys, some of the comments you’ve made and said to me have been life changing. This is not the end.”
The show also featured a guest performance from Brit Award-winning singer Emeli Sande, who sang 'My Kind of Love'.
Next week, the acts mentored by mentors Will.i.am and Tom Jones will compete again and and two people from either team will be eliminated.
Both coaches will also take their teams for a special group performance.
