The Voice 2013 UK battle rounds: Round 1 pairings and songs revealed!

Katie Benbow (The Voice 2013)

Here’s a run of the first Voice 2013 battle round pairings and song choices, as the first twelve acts prepare to enter the ring.

In the Battles each Coach must pair up their acts to sing against each other in a vocal showdown to decide who will progress to the next stage.

After each Battle, the Artists’ own Coach must decide who will progress to the next round and who to send home.

But this year, there’s an extra twist.

After each Battle, it’s not quite over for the losing Artist. In a dramatic new change to the format, the Coaches can “Steal” a losing Artist for their own team. So if they missed out on an Artist they loved during the Blind Auditions, now’s their chance to finally grab them for their team.

The battle rounds will air over this weekend and next weekend, with shows on both Saturday and Sunday.

On tomorrow night’s first show, here’s who’s singing against who…

Team Will
Jordan Lee Davis v Matt Henry
- Do I Do by Stevie Wonder

Nu Tarna v Cleo Higgins
- Finally by Cece Peniston

Team Danny
Andrea Begley v Alice Barlow
- People Help The People by Birdy

Team Jessie
Katie Benbow v Sarah Cassidy
- ET by Katy Perry

Ash Morgan v Adam Barron
- I Won’t Let You Go by James Morrison

Team Tom
Jamie Bruce v LB Robinson
- When Love Comes to Town by U2

The Voice UK airs Saturday at 8:35PM on BBC One.
