A Hainault singer who performed in front of Kylie Minogue and will.i.am in last night’s episode of BBC One’s The Voice, has unfortunately not made it through to the next round of auditions.
Ryan Green, 17 from Hainault, sang Don’t Go, by Wretch 32, while playing the piano, in the opening episode of series three of the popular talent show.
The series begins with blind auditions, which sees more than 100 acts sing for judges Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, will.i.am and Ricky Wilson, who each have their backs to the performers.
If a judge hears a voice that appeals to them, they press a button indicating they want that person for their team, once they have pressed the button, they are free to turn and see the act for the first time.
Ryan, who now attends The Brit School of Performing Arts, which counts Amy Winehouse and Adele amongst its alumni, described the experience as “a real eye opener”.

“The whole thing has been such a great experience,” he said.
“The judges gave me some great feedback and it was nice to hear them say they had made a mistake in not turning around- they said they didn’t realise it was me playing the piano.

“I was nervous playing in front of such big names. If I got through, I would have liked will.i.am to have been my coach. I’ll definitely be watching the rest of the series. I would like Lucy Closier to win.”
Ryan hopes to make a career in song writing and credits his parents for his life-long love of music.
