The Voice coach Will.i.am has revealed that he would have regretted not putting his contestant Gevanni Hutton through to the final.

The upcoming last episode of The Voice, which airs tonight, will see Will.i.am’s act Gevanni, Meghan Trainor’s Brooke Scullion, Olly Murs’ Blessing Chipata and Sir Tom Jones’ act Jonny Brooks, battling it out in a bid to be named winner of the ninth series.

After a seven month hiatus thanks to the pandemic, The Voice returned last week for series nine’s long-awaited semi-finals, where the remaining nine acts were whittled down to just four.

Speaking ahead of the final, the Black Eyed Peas singer told Metro.co.uk why he picked Gevanni.

‘It’s my heart that got me out of my ghetto life so I follow my heart,’ he began.

‘I would have had regrets. (if I didn’t pick him) it would have affected me emotionally if I didn’t listen to my heart.’

‘I really truly believe that Gevanni has great talent and a lot to offer and he reminds me of my path,’ he added.

During the semi-final knock-out rounds, Gevanni had viewers and even Jesy Nelson in tears after his emotional performance of People by Birdie.

He had some stiff competition in the battles as he was up against Claudillea Holloway and Baby Sol, but in the end, Will picked Gevanni.

The Little Mix singer joined Will as a guest mentor to help the acts during their rehearsals.

Speaking about his performance Jesy said: ‘‘Gevanni literally has my whole heart, that’s just something really vulnerable about him and I just want to give him a cuddle.’

‘I don’t think there are many singers that can make you feel every word they are singing, he could sing Ba Ba Black Sheep and he could make me cry,’ she added.

The Voice final airs on Saturday at 8.40pm on ITV.
