The Voice Kids

Published: Mon 25 Jun 2018

The Voice Kids is back on ITV – and this year the search for Britain’s best young singer will air every night across one week as an exciting TV event.
 
Last year’s first series of The Voice Kids was the most successful entertainment launch of the summer pulling in an average 4 million viewers - and the second series promises to be just as exciting.
 
Our coaches – global music star will.i.am, pop princess Pixie Lott and McFly frontman Danny Jones - return to their big red chairs while Emma Willis is once again hosting.
 
Can Pixie – whose singer, 14-year-old Jess, triumphed on last year’s series – make it two years in a row or will one of Will or Danny’s teams take the title?
 
Open to children aged between 7 and 14 years old, the young singers will first off perform in the Blind auditions where they try to nab one of 12 spots on each coach’s team.
 
Each singer will perform to our great live band headed by music director David Tench in the hope that one of the coaches will push their button and give them a turn.
 
Those who don’t make it through still get advice and words of encouragement from our coaches as all their chairs turn at the end of each audition.
 
After the Blinds, the youngsters move on to the Battles, where three singers from each team link up to perform together for each spot in the Semi-Final.
 
As there are no Steals on the Kids show it means there are no second chances for the coaches.
 
Four singers from each team then appear in the Semi-Final before viewers at home get to choose the winner in our spectacular live final.
 
The winner will once again scoop a £30,000 bursary towards their musical education plus a dream family holiday to Disneyland Paris.
