Sam and Sophie get the boot on The Voice
Monday 30 April 2012
We don't know about you guys but we are loving The Voice! Not sure if that has something to do with the amazing talent or the fact that we get to see Danny's cute little face ever weekend!
Anyway, last night saw the very first elimination and it wasn't pretty. It's never nice when contestants get the boot but it felt particularly harsh this time round. Maybe because the first girl to go was just 17!
Saturday night saw the guys and girls from Team Tom and Team Will.i.am fight for their place on next week's show. It was the first time on the programme that the decision was down to the general public. After three from each team were saved, we were left with Sam Buttery and duo Matt & Sueleen on Tom's team while Sophie Griffin and Joelle Moses were left on Will.i.am's team.
It was then up to their mentors to choose which of their own acts to save with Sam Buttery and Sophie Griffin losing out.
On hearing his mentors choice, Sam said: "I've just loved working with Tom, he's just been amazing. Matt & Sueleen gave a great performance.
"I'm just lucky for the time that I've had, to grow on the show. I'm pretty gutted and it feels like my heart has been ripped out. But I'm still happy, a little bit."
Will.i.am called both of his acts 'amazing talents' but opted to save Joelle. Sophie said: "This has been the best experience of my whole entire life.
"I've learnt so much and I've worked with some of the best people in the whole entire world. I'm really gutted, but thank-you so much for everything.
"I couldn't have had a better coach, it's been a dream come true. He's just let me be myself and I love him. He's been amazing."
Will managed to cause more controversy during last nights show when he admitted that ha had 'never really liked talent shows.' He made the untimely confession just before choosing which act to send home as well as tweeting during the crucial eviction hour.
Veiwers were left annoyed after the judge was filmed several times with his phone in his hand and critisied him heavily with one user saying: ‘It looks like your bored.’
Another added: ‘Using your phone during Jaz came across as incredibly rude!’
Will replied via twitter: ‘If you saw me on my phone I wasn't being rude... I was connecting to people watching.'
'TV, phone, laptop, & tablet.. its a new day...if I dont tweet during live tv Im not connecting to people watching in the new way #thevoiceuk.'
