Nine acts made The Voice UK final 20 last night, and here's a picture recap of the action as the battles got underway!

18 singers went head to head, as coaches Jessie J, Danny O'Donoghue, Tom Jones and Will.i.am decided which to take through to the live shows.

There were some surprise choices, as favourite Jessica Hammond was eliminated and Danny pitched Max Milner and Bill Downs against one another.

In the end, it was Max who won, and joined [tag]Joelle Moses[/tag], [tag]Tyler James[/tag], [tag]Jaz Ellington[/tag], [tag]Bo Bruce[/tag], [tag]Vince Kidd[/tag], [tag]Toni Warne[/tag], [tag]Sam Buttery[/tag] and [tag]Ruth Brown[/tag] in the live shows.
