After the seventh round of The Voice UK 2020 auditions, here are the contestants in the teams for the battle rounds.
The search for a new vocal super star continued this weekend as The Voice 2020 returned to ITV with its ninth series.
will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones and Olly Murs are back in the spinning red chairs as this year’s coaches, joined by newbie Meghan Trainor on a brand new quest to uncover the best vocal talent that Britain has to offer.
As always, the first stage was the blind auditions where the contestants had to hold their nerve as they performed to the backs of the coaches. If any of the four liked what they heard, they hit their buzzer to spin around and select that artist for their teams of ten.
If more than one spins then it’s up the act to pick which team to join but if no coaches turn it’s the bus back home.
From the very first show we’ve seen the coaches using every trick, name drop and boast they could to secure the best acts for their teams.
Here’s how the teams look for the battle rounds after the final weekend of blind auditions…

How The Voice UK works
After the blind auditions comes the battle rounds where each coach will cut their teams in half by setting their artists against one another in a series of music duels which only one act can win.
However, as always, each coach has a ‘steal’, allowing them to pinch an artist let go by one of their rivals for their own teams, so you can be sure the above line ups will chop and change in the near future!
Acts will then face the head to head knockout rounds before making the live shows where viewers will ultimately crown the winner.
The Voice UK 2020 continues Saturday nights on ITV.
