The Voice UK 2013 to air Saturdays and Sundays from next weekend

The Voice UK 2013 - Jessie J

The Voice UK 2013 will be airing on both Saturday and Sunday from next weekend, as the Battle Weekend's begin!

For the past six weeks, Saturday nights have seen the blind auditions which concluded last night.

From here out, it's a case of double episodes as the show will air on both the Saturday and Sunday for the battles.

Before the performances however, the Coaches along with trusted fellow pop stars and music industry veterans - their Battle Advisors - will dedicate themselves to developing their Artists, sharing the secrets of their success and making their team’s voices the very best they can be.

In the Battles each Coach will pair up their acts to sing against each other in a series of sure to be exciting vocal duets, which will decide who will progress to the next stage.

After each Battle, the Artists’ own Coach must decide from each pairing who will progress to the next round and who to send home.

But this year, there's an extra twist.

After each Battle, it’s not quite over for the losing Artist. In a dramatic new change to the format, the Coaches can “Steal” a losing Artist for their own team. So if they missed out on an Artist they loved during the Blind Auditions, now’s their chance to finally grab them for their team.

Each Coach can only Steal one Artist during the Battle Rounds, so they’d better make that Steal count. If more than one Coach tries to Steal the same Artist, then they have to pitch to the Artist once again to persuade them to join their team, in the same way as the Blind Auditions.

By the end of the Battles, each Coach will each have seven Artists remaining on their team and from now on, there are no more second chances.

The Voice UK Battle Rounds begin on Saturday at 8:35PM and continue on Sunday at 7PM.
