The Voice Kids UK: 13-year-old Francesca stuns with Alicia Keys cover

The Voice Kids UK: Francesca

13-year-old Francesca impressed on The Voice Kids UK this weekend after covering Alicia Keys.

The talented teenager from Buckinghamshire performed If I Ain't Got You by Alicia Keys to get all three coaches turning around.


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

Danny Jones, Pixie Lott and are 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.

Francesca's voice had Pixie hitting buzzer within seconds before Will quickly followed and then Danny also spun around.

After the audition, Will told Francesca: "You have an incredibly old soul. So much richness, maturity in your tone and I'd like to work with you to bring that out more."

Pixie branded the performance "absolutely incredible" and Danny told the youngster: "I had to turn to see where that amazing voice came from. I believed in every word and every note you were singing."

It was then over to Francesca to decide which team to join, opting to go for Team Will much to Pixie's disappointment.

After three 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 12-year-old Sophia from South Wales who performed Purple Rain by Prince, 13-year-old Nathan from Northern Ireland who belted out Old Time Rock N' Roll by Bob Seger and 14-year-old Juno who sang London performs Chasing Pavements by Adele.

The Voice UK Kids continues next week at 7:30PM on ITV, Saturday night with the final round of blind auditions.
