The blind auditions are over and 48 popstar wannabes have made it through to the next stage of The Voice.

Among them is 24-year-old north Londoner Vangelis Polydorou who landed a spot on Boy George’s team with his rendition of Do You Really Want To Hurt Me.

We found out more about the half Greek, half Scottish singer.

Where do you live?

I was born in Archway, but live in Hornsey so close to Crouch End with my mum and sister.

Which schools did you go to?

I went to St Joseph’s Primary School in Highgate then secondary school I went to Finchley Catholic High School and then college City and Islington where I studied music.

What’s your day job?

I used to work at Cook, which makes handmade frozen food. I gave my notice in three weeks ago though so I’m currently unemployed, let’s hope the competition goes well haha.

When did you start singing?

I started singing from the age of four but I started gaining a bit more confidence when I was 11 and knew I wanted to be a singer. I’ve worked hard on my voice.

Where you have performed locally?

I haven’t really performed locally if I’m honest. I did a competition for N21’s got talent and I won! Woohoo...but I’m not actually from N21 either so that was a bit of a cheat!

How you feel to have made it through the blind auditions?

It feels amazing, I never thought this would happen to me even though I dreamed of it happening. Hard work and perseverance is the key. Don’t let no be an answer.

Who or what is the biggest influence on your singing?

I think that I always try and better myself and be the best I can be. It can be really hard because I’m such a perfectionist and have a hard time letting go but I have something within me that doesn’t want to rest on having natural talent. My favourite male and female singers that have influenced me are are Celine Dion and Elvis.

The Voice airs on BBC One on Saturday at 7pm.
