Tom showed strong enthusiasm for her response and reminisced on how he sang the hit in the summer.

It was on hearing of his interest in the song that his co-judges, as well as the audience and Bethzienna, encouraged him to give it a try.

And so it began one of the most exhilarating moments on the show. He had a splendid start to the song, and his unique baritone voice echoed across the hall.

Bethzienna herself was equally impressive. One would expect the impromptu performance to startle her, but she handled it perfectly and delivered one of the most beautiful moments on The Voice UK.

It didn't take long for the audience and the rest of the judges to get on their feet and dance.
