Emma Willis hosts the final night of live knockout rounds, and it is time for Gavin Rossdale's team to sing for a place in the quarter-final. Gavin and the other coaches - Jennifer Hudson, Sir Tom Jones and will.i.am - all take their places in the infamous red chairs, but it is now down to the public to decide who stays and who goes home. Only three acts can go through and the two acts with the highest number of public votes get a place, leaving Gavin to save one other act from his team. The three acts that make it through will be one step closer to the chance of winning a recording contract with Polydor Records. will.i.am gives a very special performance live in the studio.
Hosted by Emma Willis and Marvin Humes, the show features four musician coaches: will.i.am, Boy George, Paloma Faith and Ricky Wilson, who will coach only the most talented vocalists. The show's innovative format features three stages of competition: the first begins with the blind audition, then the competition enters into a battle phase, and finally, the live performance. The show's casting team is working with the music industry and searching the country for the best singers to bring to the blind audition process.
During the blind auditions, the decisions from the coaches are based solely on voice and not on looks. The coaches hear the contestants perform, but they don't get to see them - thanks to rotating chairs.
