The Voice 2013 coaches: Danny O'Donoghue is up for a fight with Jessie J!

The Voice UK 2013 - Jessie J

The Voice 2013 battle rounds kick off tonight and Danny O'Donoghue is itching for a fight with Jessie J!

This year the coaches are able to steal an act from their rivals, and Danny has revealed he's got his eye on one singer from Team Jessie.

The Script frontman admitted that he has been waiting for the Laserlight hitmaker to slip up so he can swoop in.

He said: “Then I get to fight with her and steal her act — and hopefully rub it in her face too.”

Jessie on the other hand reckons that the battles are a fair portrayal of the music industry.

"The battles are a reflection of the industry," she said. "There’s always someone ready to try and take you down.”

Meanwhile, Will.i.am warned the acts that they should remember to focus on the singing and shouldn't get too involved in battling.

He advised: "The best thing about the battle rounds is fighting for dear life — but at the same time trying to keep some type of respectful face on.

“You don’t want to be disrespectful and remembered as the bitch.”

The Voice UK airs tonight form 8:35PM on BBC One.
