The big entertainment show for the freshest new talent gets bigger this summer when The Voice Kids returns for a new series in June 2019. The stage is set and now there are four iconic red chairs in position. Original Voice Kids star coaches will.i.am, Danny Jones and Pixie Lott are all back and there’s a new kid on the block as the multi-platinum selling singer Jessie J joins the panel.
 
Emma Willis is again hosting the show and, throughout the Blind Auditions, cheering on from the wings as she joins with the hopefuls’ founder fan club members - their friends and families.
 
Each coach has nine places on their teams to fill as they head into the Blind Auditions searching for the next generation of superstar singers.
 
This year the competition is opened up to duos for the first time. Both solo singers and double acts, aged seven to 14, are eligible to come and sing their hearts out in a bid to get a coveted chair turn. After each performance, regardless of whether they’ve won a place with will, Danny, Pixie or Jessie, all four coaches will turn to give the singers words of advice and encouragement.
 
With the teams complete, the coaching begins as the youngsters work hard in the hope of making it through The Battles. Each Battle will see three acts per team sing off for a place in the semi-final. There are no steals for the coaches in this competition so the youngsters will be going all out to make sure they’re one of just three acts their coach will put through to the semi-final.
 
At the semi-final, those singers will be singing to impress their coaches for one last time as each coach selects just one act per team to make it to the live final and then the ultimate decision will be in the hands of the viewers at home.
 
The final four will perform in the live final in the hope of winning the public vote. Win the competition and they’ll secure a £30,000 bursary towards their musical education as well as a family holiday to Orlando courtesy of Universal Studios and Norwegian Air.
 
The Voice Kids is an ITV Studios production of a Talpa format.
