PICTURES! The Voice 2013 UK teams ready for the battles

The Voice 2013 battles kick off this weekend and here's a look at the very happy teams before they head into the ring!

48 acts remain in the competition, but they'll be halved over the battle rounds which will see them go head to head with their teammates in some singing duels.

Only one performer in each duet can win, and it'll be their coach who has the uneviable task of splitting the two.

But there may be a second chance, with four 'wildcard' acts getting the chance to win their way back into the competition through the new steal twist.

Each of the coaches will be able to pitch for one of the rejected artists from their three rival teams to join their own group of performers.

It's sure to make for a dramatic show this weekend, with a double episode on Saturday and Sunday night on BBC One.
