PICTURES! The Voice UK Kids 2018 first auditions as children face the coaches

The Voice Kids UK first look

The Voice Kids 2018 UK returns this Saturday night for series 2 and here's a first look.

Fresh from his stint on The Voice UK, global music star returns to his big red chair alongside pop princess Pixie Lott and McFly frontman Danny Jones on the three-coach panel.

Presented by Emma Willis, the new series is open to talented young soloists between the ages of seven and 14.

Just as with the main show, the show kicks off with the Blind Auditions, with each coach needing to fill a team of singers.

The youngsters perform to a live band – but can they persuade the coaches to hit their buttons?

As always, if a coach decides to press their buzzer, they'll secure that act for their team, although if more than one coach turns it'll be the kid that picks which team to join.

And even if no coaches press their buzzer, they'll still turn at the end of the performance so they can give feedback and encouragement, even if they didn’t press their buttons.


So who's on the very first show tonight?

This evening's episode sees the first ten acts hoping to get a spin from one of the trio of judges.

Those performing are Natasha, Drew, Lilia, Jude, Jacob, Shaney Lee, Daniel, Isaac, Lucia and Sienna-Leigh.

The Voice UK Kids starts at 8PM on ITV Saturday night.

For 2018, there will be a brand new format: The show will air over the space of just 8 days, with new episodes each night.

The series continues on Sunday night running nightly up until the final live next Saturday night on ITV.

The winner will once again scoop a £30,000 bursary towards their musical education plus a dream family holiday to Disneyland Paris.
