Here’s a full recap of the third 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 tenth episode of this year’s series.
They partnered up the remaining acts in their teams against one another for the final round of battles for 2020’s competition.
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 gave their view on who was the better performer but it was the acts’ mentor alone that decided the winner, with that act going through to the knockouts.
However there was a second chance for those that lost out with the steal twist back giving each coach the power to pick one (and only one) of the singers rejected by their rival coaches.
After the first two rounds of the battles, it was only Sir Tom who had the chance to rescue an act going into tonight’s episode.
Recap the battle performances and results from The Voice UK this week (March 7) below..
