TEENAGE singer Frances Wood has been eliminated from BBC One’s The Voice.

Frances, 18, of Wrenthorpe performed the club classic Show Me Love live on the talent show on Saturday night.

She was one of four competitors from team Will.i.am singing to win the public vote and secure her a spot as one of the final eight in the competition.

Her team mate Jaz Ellington received the most votes and was sent automatically through.

It left a tense Frances up against Joelle Moses and Tyler James for the final slot on Will.i.am’s team.

But her team coach and Black Eyed Peas rapper, Will.i.am, decided he would have an all male team and chose Tyler as the other contestant going through to the next stage of the show.

Frances, a student at The Cathedral Academy of Performing Arts, made it from through from 28,000 acts to be one of the last 16 in the show.

And during Saturday’s appearance on The Voice she sang a medley of I Got A Woman, Gold Digger and Just Can’t Get Enough alongside Will.i.am, in front of 5.6 million viewers.

The overall winner of the competition will land a record contract with Universal Music.
