Episode 26: Cuban Spanish Singer & Songwriter Lucy Calcines (The Voice UK – Semi Finalist 2020)




Finlay speaks to The Voice UK 2020 Semi Finalist Lucy Calcines. In 2020, she became a contestant and semi-finalist of the television show The Voice UK, reaching over 16 million views on her blind audition alone. Performing her own remix of the Latin hit “Mi Gente” by J Balvin & Willy William, she achieved a four chair turn by superstar coaches Meghan Trainor, Sir Tom Jones, Olly Murs, and will.i.am. Lucy proceeded to join will.i.am’s team leading her to being mentored by the producer and member of The Black Eyed Peas.

Lucy Calcines quickly became the most watched contestant in the shortest period of time up to date in the history of The Voice UK. Being a bilingual artist, singing in both Spanish and English makes her versatile and allows Lucy to stand out in different genres from Pop to Trap and Reggaeton. Her sound is characterised by incorporating Latin music elements into nowadays commercial Pop, blending different genres and creating a new sound she calls “Popton.”
