After Donel gave a stunning audition, coaches will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson, Sir Tom Jones and Olly Murs set about pitching for him.
The 16-year-old wowed the judges with his rendition of Justin Beiber’s Cold Water in which he mixed Zimbabwean lyrics with English ones.
Will, 42, promised the youngster a career outside of The Voice, explaining that he had his backpack with him full of technology to go and make a hit there and then.
However, Jennifer, 36, clearly was a fan of his style and stood in front of her chair asking any of her fellow coaches to “fight her” for the youngster.
Newcomer Olly seemed up to the task, and joked that he would take her on before dramatically falling to the floor.
As the scene unfolded, will.i.am stayed cool and merely picked up his phone and pretended to call someone.
Shocked Jennifer snapped: “Will what are you doing? Get off your phone!”
The cheeky Black Eyed Peas rapper responded that he was “calling a record label” at which the Spotlight hitmaker picked up hers and attempted to do the same.
It seemed that Donel had his heart set on one coach however, as he decided to go with will.i.am.
The Voice UK continues on ITV next Saturday at 8pm.
