Peterborough’s singing twins have vowed to bounce back and make a name for themselves after missing out on the next round of The Voice.

Hannah and Naomi Moxon, known as Classical Reflection, were in the team of Kaiser Chiefs front man Ricky Wilson.

However, they were knocked out at the battle stage after singing ‘The Living Years’ by Mike & The Mechanics alongside Emmanuel Nwamadi.

The 19-year-old music teachers from Longsthorpe were left disappointed when Ricky decided to send Emmanuel through to the knockout stage instead of them.

And the disappointment was compounded as the other judges on the panel - Rita Ora, Tom Jones and Will.i.am - had no spaces left on their teams to bring them in, or ‘steal’ them.

Will.i.am admitted that he would have brought the twins on to his team if he had a space left.

He said: “I think you guys are awesome. You are wonderful kids.”

Tom was also full of praise, saying: “That was so good I did not want it to end.”

To the twins he added: “Your voices are angelic.”

Reflecting on Classical Reflection’s time on the BBC One show, Hannah said: “It was such a valuable experience. It was a sense of achievement when we finished the song. It was very overwhelming.

We will work to get a record out and I hope we can still become a success story.

“We felt we worked well together and did the song justice.

“We said whoever went through we would be happy for the other. We could definitely in the future see us work with Emmanuel.”

Hannah added: “It gives us confidence knowing that we could have been stolen if we had been on earlier.

“This is definitely not going to make us stop. Lots of other great acts have suffered the same fate.

“We will work to get a record out and I hope we can still become a success story.

“It’s a shame to go off but it happens. We wish everyone good luck.

“And thank you to everyone for the lovely comments we have received”

Wisbech resident Vanessa Hunt (27) was also in the battle round.

Vanessa, who sells loo roll for a living, lost out to Liss Jones in her battle in a fiery contest after Rita decided to keep Liss in the competition

Rita said: “I love both of you and how you both sing and the energy you bring to a song.”

Vanessa, though, impressed Tom enough for him to remark that he wished he had a steal left to bring her on to his team.
