The winner of The Voice Kids UK 2021 has been crowned this evening.
The Voice Kids UK’s new series aired over three episodes Monday-Wednesday this week on ITV.
This year’s series of The Voice Kids welcomed new coach Melanie C alongside returning coaches Pixie Lott, Danny Jones and Will.i.am in the spinning red chairs.
Tonight saw sixteen acts from the blind auditions take part in a series of battles before four went head-to-head in the final.
Who won The Voice Kids 2021?
As voted for by the show’s virtual audience, it 14-year-old Torrin from Oxfordshire on Team Melanie C won the the show.
Torrin beat Team Will’s 14-year-old Leo, Team Danny’s 14-year-old Aishling Mae and Team Pixie’s 13-year-old Savannah in the final.
Torrin reacted: “It just feels totally incredible and thank you for Melanie because I wouldn’t be here without you.”
Speaking about Torrin, Melanie C said: “Torrin for me was an instant chair turner. She just has this incredibly unique quality about her, in her voice and then getting to know her personality as well she’s very, very special.
“She’s really unique. I always talk about wanting to be touched, wanting to feel a connection and emotion when somebody performs and she has that more than most. I’m so excited for her future.
“She’s a singer/songwriter, she has that quality but the riffs are so soulful. She has like a Celtic feel and then these soulful riffs. It’s like nothing I’ve ever heard. The control and the emotion – she’s so special.”
The prize for the winner of The Voice Kids this year was a special family holiday to Disneyland Paris for its 30th Anniversary.
However in the final host Emma Willis announced that all four of the finalists would be flying out to the resort.
