The Voice Kids - Jess (13) from Essex sings 'Ain't Got Far to Go' (Jess Glynne) (video)
Continues Saturday 17 June at 7.30pm on ITV
The Voice Kids comes to the UK for the first time this summer as ITV launches the search for Britain’s best young singer.
Fresh from his stint on The Voice UK, global music star will.i.am returns to his big red chair alongside pop princess Pixie Lott and McFly frontman Danny Jones on the three-coach panel.
Presented by Emma Willis, the new series is open to talented young soloists between the ages of seven and 14.
The show kicks off with the Blind Auditions, with each coach needing to fill a team of 12 singers.
The youngsters perform to a live band headed by music director David Tench – but can they persuade the coaches to hit their buttons?
After each performance, all the coaches’ chairs turn so they can give feedback and encouragement, even if they didn’t press their buttons.
The Battles see three acts sing off for one place in the semi-final, although there are no steals on The Voice Kids – and no second chances for the coaches.
The final four acts in each team then sing in the semi-final for a spot in the spectacular live finale – with viewers choosing the winner.
