And it seemed ITV viewers were thrilled with the episode last night as they tuned in in their millions.
Ratings have since been revealed and The Voice pulled in a massive 4.8 million viewers.
Last week, ITV’s talent competition bagged 4.7 million viewers meaning it picked up an extra 100,000 fans.
What’s more, it triumphed again over The Greatest Dancer, which aired on BBC One between 7.35pm and 8.50pm.
The dancing talent show brought in 3.4 million viewers.
Although less than The Voice, it was still a positive score for the BBC’s offering as it remained the same from last week.
Over on The Greatest Dancer, the acts were whittled down ahead of the final.
BBC viewers decided James and Oliver, Ellie, KLA and Harry and Eleiyah would perform in next week’s thrilling finale.
Dance Captains, Cheryl, Oti Mabuse and Matthew Morrison were all left emotional at the results.
Meanwhile, The Voice UK judges, will.i.am, Tom Jones, Olly Murs and Jennifer Hudson filled up their teams.
In a turn of events, will.i.am was the first to pick his singers and as a result, took to breaking some loosely-held rules instead.
The Black Eyed Peas front man decided to switch things up for him a bit.
He went out into the audience and sat next to some unsuspecting viewers.
will.i.am sat there and watched Ayanam, who thankfully joined the show after the judges turned for him.
will.i.am said: “My team is so full so I wanted to see what it wad like from the audience’s perspective and it was really powerful.”
But fans weren’t happy with the change of format and flocked to Twitter to comment on the scenes.
One viewer fumed: “#TheVoiceUK This is breaking the rules if you’re going to break format inform us first.”
“That’s a bit unfair. Will becomes the focus when he sits in the audience, when the focus should be on the acts. #thevoiceuk,” posted another.
The Voice continues next week on ITV at 8pm and The Greatest Dancer concludes at 7.10pm.
