Who is on Team Olly Murs on The Voice 2019?
The former X Factor star knows what it’s like to be part of a singing competition.

Jimmy Balito – Stolen from Tom
Jimmy, 23, is a pop/soul singer-songwriter from Sussex hoping to take his singing to the next level on The Voice 2019.
He auditioned for The Voice in 2018, singing Concrete by Tom Odell.
Unfortunately he didn’t make it through, but when he returned this year he sang Higher Love by Steve Winwood.
His performance won him a place in the next round of the competition.
He joined Team Tom but was stolen by Team Olly.
Molly Hocking – Stolen by Jen
Molly, 17, is from Cornwall and currently works in her mum’s shop in St Ives.
In her blind audition she impressed the judges by singing Take My Breath Away by Eva Cassidy.
Olly turned his chair around a few seconds after Molly started to sing followed by Jennifer Hudson and Tom Jones.
She opted to join Team Olly after he said she “took his breath away”.
Connie, 18, is a Brit School student from Woodbridge, Suffolk.
She sang Demi Lovato’s Skyscraper in her blind audition.
Both Olly and Tom turned their chairs around.
But in the end Connie chose Olly to be her mentor who said: “You’re current, young and I think you’ve got huge potential to go on and be a star.”
The Flat Pack – Eliminated
The Flat Pack are a trio from Brighton formed of Duncan, 43, Nathan, 36, and Jamie, 39.
The boys are one of the first trios to perform on the show after the rules were altered in 2019.

The group joined Team Olly after he was the only judge to turn around.

He is a multi-instrumental singer who is just as comfortable with a piano as he is with a guitar.

Two out of four judges decided to turn their chairs for him – with Harrisen choosing Olly over Jennifer Hudson.
Callum Butterworth – Stolen by will.i.am
Callum is an aspiring 17-year-old singer from Halifax.
He picked Mercy by Shawn Mendes for his audition.

But it was ultimately Team Olly that she decided to join.
