It was the LIVE Final of The Voice UK on Saturday night and yes, it was an INCREDIBLE show full of unforgettable performances and classic Coach moments!
Kicking off the show it was all about Olly Murs, will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson and Sir Tom Jones as they took to the stage one last time to sing ‘Gimme Some Lovin’!
Then it was all down to the four finalists to sing their hearts out, as they proved to the audience why they deserve that recording contract...
Ultimately it was X who took home the Winner title, and we couldn't be more proud of them! We can't believe it's over for another year *tears*
