Jen & Liv had a different start to the competition, as presenter Emma Willis was given the opportunity to turn will.i.am’s chair during the blind audition, in which she turned for Jen & Liv, as they performed Doja Cat’s Woman. 

But Emma wasn’t the only one to turn as Anne-Marie, Tom Jones, Olly Murs all turned for the duo, with will.i.am backing Emma’s decision also.
