The Voice UK’s coaches had to make some tough decisions this evening during this year’s final knockouts. In tonight’s instalment on ITV, it was time for Sir Tom Jones, will.i.am, Olly Murs and Meghan Trainor to decide which of their remaining acts they wanted to send through to the semi-finals.
The first coach up was Tom who had to choose between ShezAr, Elly O’Keefe and Lois Moodie.
ShezAr took to the stage first and performed her rendition of Joe Cocker’s With A Little Help From My Friends.
Elly then added her own signature folk twist to Beyonce’s emotional ballad Halo.
The third and final performer was Lois who blew the coaches away with Jordin Sparks’ Battlefield.

When the three singers had performed, Tom admitted to the other coaches: “I thought I knew what I was doing.”
Host Emma Willis brought the three singers together on stage to signal it was time for Tom to make a decision.
“Three great singers,” the Welsh crooner remarked. “I don’t know what to do.”
“It is tricky but it is time for you to make that decision,” Emma said. “Tom, can you please give me the name of the singer that you want to take through to the live semi-final?”
However, The Voice UK coach admitted he was torn between sticking with an initial choice or changing his mind at the last minute.
“I don’t know whether to change my mind, they say don’t change horses in the middle of the stream,” he shared.
“I’m going to stick and it’s Lois,” he revealed as his eyes filled with tears and Emma checked to make sure he was okay.
“Are you alright, Tom?” Emma asked but Tom couldn’t answer and remained speechless.
