A singer from Cannock has made it through to the next round of ITV's The Voice.

Georgia Bray wowed audiences at the blind auditions, aired on Saturday night.

The 21-year-old sang her own version of Katy Perry's pop hit 'Firework' and joined judge Olly Murs' team for the next round.

Murs was the only judge from the line-up of Jennifer Hudson, Will.i.am and Tom Jones, to press his button for Georgia, leaving it right up until the last few seconds of the song to do so.

Now, Georgia will go on to the battle phase, where she will sing against a fellow member of Olly Murs' team, and if she is successful she will move onto further knockout rounds and then the live shows.

The winner of The Voice 2019 will release their debut single alongside a record deal with Polydor Records.

Previously the winner was also handed £100,000 but that has been scrapped since the show moved from BBC to ITV in 2017.

Since the show was aired on Saturday, Georgia has tweeted about her experience on the show, she said: "Last night was the most magical experience of my life! I am so grateful to be given this amazing opportunity and I can’t thank Olly enough for pushing his button.

"I’m going to make him and all the Yam Yams proud I promise."

She has also been vocal on other social media platforms, urging her followers to watch the show and also posting pictures and video on Instagram of her dancing alongside friends wearing Olly Murs masks.

Olly Murs himself also tweeted a video summing up the acts shown on Saturday's programme, also mentioning Georgia.
