will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones and Olly Murs are joined by new coach Anne-Marie for the new series.

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 like what they hear, they hit their buzzer to spin around and select that artist for their teams of ten.

They then went forward to the battles where acts faced off in a series of duets in order to win a place in the semi-finals.

Here's how the teams look for the semi-final rounds after the battles were completed...
