The Voice comes to an end tonight - it's on now as I type - and how much more entertaining has it been this series, thanks in no small part to Ricky Wilson and Kylie Minogue taking over from the not very lamented Jessie J and Danny O'Donowho? and better hosts in Emma Willis and Marvin Humes.
Let's face it, whilst it's entertaining enough as a TV show (though a trifle overlong and drawn out) the show's commitment to find a viable new recording artiste is second fiddle to the coaches and the show as a whole. Especially so when they turn away what was clearly the show's best hope in harp playing Scottish elfin cutie Anna McLuckie, who wowed at the blind auditions with her unique and beautiful version of Daft Punk's Get Lucky before being sent home by will.i.am in the quarter finals and the most wtf moment this year.
But for now, my money's on Sally Barker, Tom Jones' singer. She's already an established artiste and folkie, and I even have one of her albums in my collection - when she played alongside Kate Rusby in the all woman folk group The Poozies.
