PICTURES! First look at The Voice UK 2019 knock out rounds

Here are all the pictures from Saturday night's first knockout round on The Voice UK 2019.

As things stand, six acts remain in each of the four teams, led by mentors Will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson, Olly Murs and Sir Tom Jones.

However by the end of next weekend, just eight finalists will be left in the live shows.

In the knockouts, each singer will perform once for the coaches and a live studio audience.

But first, each gets a spot of coaching with a guest mentor. Years & Years’ Olly Alexander will join Jennifer Hudson, Anne-Marie will work with Olly Murs, James Arthur will team up with Sir Tom Jones and Nicole Scherzinger joins Will.i.am.

After the contestants sing, the panel will all offer up their views on who was best, but the power over who goes through is solely in the hands of each mentor.

In Saturday's episode, three singers from each team will perform before their coach must pick one to go through to the live shows.

Performing on Team Tom are trio Equip To Overcome consisting of Gabrielle (20), Yolanda (20) and Shalom (20) from Kent, 43-year-old Paster from London Roger Samuels, and 23-year-old Deana from Liverpool.

Those in the knockouts for Team Will tonight are trio Nxt Gen made up of Cian, Sonny and Joel, all aged 21, 16-year-old Gabriel Dryss from London and 17-year-old student Callum Butterworth.

Singing for Team Jennifer are trio 34-year-old Sarah Tucker from Essex, 27-year-old singer-songwriter Moya from Jersey and 17-year-old student Connie Lamb from Suffolk.

And competing for Team Olly are 26-year-old Harrisen Larner-Main from Weston Super Mare, 16-year-old student Eva Campbell from Dublin and 23-year-old Jimmy Balito from Sussex.

The remaining trio in each team will perform next weekend, where the coaches will each select a second finalist for the live stages.

However this year will see a new 'wildcard' twist on The Voice UK. Viewers will get the chance to vote an extra act through to the live shows from the contestants eliminated at the knockouts.

The Voice UK 2019 airs Saturday night from 7:30PM on ITV.
