The Voice Kids UK: 14-year-old Zena wows with Jessie J song

The Voice Kids UK: Zena

14-year-old Zena from Dublin wowed the coaches on The Voice UK Kids this week.

It was the second episode of the new series, which is open to children aged 7 to 14.


Pixie Lott, Danny Jones and are the coaches in the spinning red chairs, mentoring the youngsters as they compete for a £30,000 prize and a family trip to Disneyland Paris.

Just like the main show, The Voice Kids kicks off with the Blind Auditions, with each coach needing to fill a team of 12 singers.

The youngsters perform to a live band headed by music director David Tench – but can they persuade the coaches to hit their buttons?

Well Zena had no problem as she belted out her audition song, Mamma Knows Best by Jessie J.

Pixie hit her buzzer within seconds of Zena starting her performance, winning the teenager for her team.

After two weeks of blind auditions on The Voice Kids UK, Team Pixie and Danny both have a total of six acts while Team Will has the five.

More of those who won spots on the teams in Saturday's show included 14-year-old Amaria from Hackney who auditioned with A Change Is Gonna Come by Sam Cooke and 11-year-old Jack who performed Free falling by John Mayer.


We also met Jake from Wigan who performed All Of Me by John Legend, 14-year-old Perry from Norwich singing Stay With Me by Sam Smith and 13-year-old Jess from Essex belting out Ain't Got Far To Go by Jess Glynne.

The Voice UK Kids continues next week at 7:30PM on ITV, Saturday night.
