Nescot student to appear in The Voice talent show

A Nescot Music student will be performing on BBC talent show The Voice on Saturday (February 21) in the last round of 'blind' auditions. 

Charlotte Turnbull, a second-year Music Practice student, will be singing Gecko (Overdrive) by Oliver Heldens to judges Rita Ora,, Sir Tom Jones and Ricky Wilson.

Charlotte, 18, performed the song at Nescot’s Further Education awards at Christmas, and has also sung at college open evenings and September’s welcome event for new students.

She also won Nescot's Got Talent in November, a show organised by Business students that raised more than £540 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Speaking on Friday, Charlotte said: “I love the song I chose, but I’m pretty nervous about seeing myself on TV. The Voice is a huge competition.”

The Voice is aimed at finding new musical talent based on ability rather than appearance.

Singers perform to the judges in ‘blind’ auditions, with the panel facing away from the stage and making decisions solely on the person’s vocal ability.

Each judge chooses 12 acts from the auditions to go through to a series of battles and then live shows with a public vote, with the winner receiving £100,000 and a record deal.

The Voice is on BBC1 at 7pm on Saturday.
