In Pictures: The First 2021 Battles!

We knew the Battles would blow us away, but what a mighty bout the first round proved to be! We had power, we had soul, we had notes we didn't know existed... and three sensational Steals from our Coaches! Take a look at all the pics.

Our Coaches were looking sharp in their new outfits - ready for Battle!

And of course no Battle would be complete without the guidance of our wonderful Emma Willis.

First up was Lauren Drew and Wayne and Morgan, who brought the party with their performance of Aretha Franklin's 'Respect'.

Wayne and Morgan were blown away to win the round!

But it's not over for Lauren, as will.i.am used his Steal to take her through to the Semi-Finals!

Next up, Jeremy Levif and Kezia battled it out with their version of Coldplay's 'Clocks'.

Will picked Jeremy to keep in the competition.

We got a serious dose of soul as Sami Nathan and Hannah Williams performed a mind-blowing version of 'Cry Me A River' by Dinah Washington.

The shock was clear for Hannah when Tom picked her as the Battle winner!

Olly's youngest Acts, Nathan Smoker and Leah Cobb sang way beyond their years with a performance of 'Stop This Flame' by Celeste.

20-year-old Nathan was won happy chappy when he was picked as the Battle winner.

But the dream continues for Leah Cobb too, who impressed Sir Tom so much she got his precious Steal and makes her way to the next round!

The swag entered the swag when Chanel Yates and Sweeney performed 'Close' by Nick Jonas and Tove Lo in a bid to keep their place in Team Anne-Marie.

Dancer Sweeney was made up when he was put through to the Semi-Finals!

We got a supercharged dose of rap from Brokenpen and Benjamin Haycock, who tore up the studio with their performance of 'Hall Of Fame' by The Script - featuring none other than their Coach will.i.am. No pressure!

Both the boys pulled out epic performances, but it was Brokenpen who was declared the winner.

Olly gave Alex Harry and Joseph Topping an almighty challenge - putting a gorgeous acoustic twist on Celine Dion's hit 'Think Twice'.

Joseph Topping couldn't believe what he was hearing when he got his ticket to the Semi-Finals!

Next up for Team Tom was Benjamin Warner vs brothers 2ché, who brought so much style and class to their version of George Michael and Aretha Franklin's iconic track 'I Knew You Were Waiting For Me'.

And the journey continues for Benjamin Warner, who was announced as Tom's winner.

We reached new heights and new notes when Stephanee Leal and Nadia Eide left us blown away by their performance of Pat Benatar's 'Love Is A Battlefield'.

Opera singer Nadia was thrilled to be given a place in the Semi-Finals.

And Stephanee was stunned when Anne-Marie hit her button, using her Steal to keep her in the competition!

Our last performance of the night was nothing short of epic! Tascha Jerawan and Jordan and Wesley took on Adele's 'Hello' and knocked our socks off with their incredible harmonies.

The brothers were totally shocked to find out they'd be heading to the Semi-Finals!
