Emma Willis and Gavin Rossdale believe this weekend's final of The Voice UK is the strongest yet and each of the finalists has what it takes for a big career in music
The Voice UK host Emma Willis and coach Gavin Rossdale believe each one of this weekend's finalists can have a successful recording career.
Emma told What's on TV at a launch for the final: "I think this is one of the strongest, if not the strongest final we've ever had. I think every single one could absolutely do something, have a career and be successful."
She also felt she knew who was going to win: "Instead of going with an act, I went with a team because I didn't want to seem to be picking favourites with the contestants... So I picked the coach that I thought had the winner, rather than the winner."
She gave a big clue when she added she thought 'Jennifer's team is s***hot.'
Gavin's two semi-finalists Truly Scrumptious Ford and Max Vickers were eliminated in the semi-finals.
"Weirdly enough, everyone was quite sensitive to me, but I felt worse for them," said Gavin. "But at the same time, Truly and Max, my semi-finalists, they were so good. This was an incredible platform for them, they had an amazing time. Maybe the stars just didn't align that night. But that doesn't mean to say they're not at the start [of a big career] and they've got all the potential in the world. It's not the last time we've heard them sing."
The Voice UK final screens on ITV this Saturday and Sunday.
