The Voice UK 2013 to allow coaches to steal one another's singers!

The Voice UK

Next year's series of The Voice will feature a knockout stage that will allow the coaches to steal one another's acts.

Bosses in the US have moved the spinning chairs into the battle rounds, and it will see the coaches fight once more over the singers.

Ratings for the new reality series fell in the UK and elsewhere once the show moved on from the auditions to the live shows.

In hopes to bid ratings in the later stages of the format and to keep viewers hooked, producers will be rejigging how the coaches get their acts.

Mark Burnett, executive producer of the US version, revealed: "In season three, the DNA of the show is the same, but for the battle rounds, the torso of this format, we need to make a couple tweaks. It's like fantasy football. You become incentivised to watch the entire league as opposed as to your own team.

"When the coaches have their battles and select one singer to stay with them, another coach can buzz in and steal the singer the other coach sent home."

The first series of The Voice UK was won by Leanne Mitchell earlier this year.
