The Voice

The Voice has returned to film in Media City today for its tenth series – and Belle Noir singer Jasmine Gur has recalled her experience of auditioning in Salford last series.

Gur reached the Battle Rounds of The Voice this year with her band Belle Noir. After receiving turns from Jones and Murs, the group opted to be part of Team Olly.

On auditioning in Salford, Gur said: “We loved the area, auditioning there was like being in a little world where everything is buzzing and it was all compact!

“Looking over at the ITV studios where Corrie is filmed, being in the same studio where Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is filmed was very cool.”

Gur commented that the most nerve-racking part of the audition process was how much was riding on it. This was especially with the nation watching at home.

She added: “It was honestly the most exciting thing we’ve ever done. The whole thing felt like a dream or like I was watching it from a screen!”, Sir Tom Jones and Olly Murs will all be joined by new coach Anne-Marie for the blind auditions that will be filmed in the Dock 10 studios.

Due to current restrictions and guidelines, there shall be no studio audience for the auditions. However there shall be a virtual audience, made up of fans watching from home.

Filming of the ninth series was halted because of lockdown. The series is due to be back on screen for its final rounds later this year.

On the future of Belle Noir, Gur said: “We’ve been cooking up some very exciting shows that we’re hoping to take internationally.

“We love the buzz of being onstage and creating new content so this year has certainly been challenging. However we’re currently working on new content that we’re so excited to share. Watch this space!”

The Voice will air its tenth series in early 2021.
