The Voice Kids comes to the UK for the first time this summer as ITV launches the search for Britain’s best young singer.
 
It's the start of The Battles on The Voice Kids. Coaches will.i.am, Pixie Lott & Danny Jones will be placing their singers in trios to do battle and sing for their place in the semi-finals of the competition.
 
Now there is direct competition will the kids stumble or shine as only one of the trio can make it through…let Battle commence.
 
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.
