Here’s a full recap of the second week of battles on The Voice UK 2020.
Coaches will.i.am, Meghan Trainor, Sir Tom Jones and Olly Murs were back on Saturday for the ninth episode of this year’s series.
They partnered up the acts in their teams against one another in a series of musical duels that only one can win.
In each battle, the two acts shared the same stage and song as they performed together in front of all the coaches, plus a live studio audience.
After each performance, all the coaches offered up their opinion on who was the better performer but it was the contestants’ mentor alone that declared the winner, with that act going through to the knockouts.
However there was a second chance for the losers with the steal twist back giving each coach the power to pick one (and only one) of the singers rejected by their rival coaches.
In the first week, Meghan and Will had used their steals meaning only Olly and Sir Tom with had chance to rescue an act going into tonight’s episode.
