Singing teacher Andrew Bateup’s vocal control was undeniable as he took to the stage with his version of ‘How Am I Supposed To Live Without You’ by Michael Bolton, but it was his heartfelt chat with the Coaches that reduced everyone to tears! An epic pitch from both Tom and Olly saw our reigning champion Mr Murs take the 31-year-old for his team.
Andrew took the term ‘power ballad’ to a whole new level against fellow musical theatre maestro Matt Croke in the Battles. Their note-perfect version of Jon Bon Jovi’s ‘Always’ knocked our socks off, and the ever-gracious Andrew was humbled to take his ticket to the next round.
Andrew was given an even bigger song by Olly in the Semi-Finals, and yet again he stepped up to the plate. This note perfect version of Bryan Adam’s huge hit ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It For You’ was both powerful and beautiful.
