Originally due to take place earlier in the year, but put on hold because of the pandemic, Emma Willis hosts the semi-final of the spinning-chair singing contest. Celebrity coaches Will.i.am, Meghan Trainor, Olly Murs and Tom Jones all hoped their act would claim victory. Now all eyes will be on the nine remaining acts to see who goes through to the series nine final.
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.
