Another Saturday night means another set of The Voice UK blind auditions, so here's your early sneak peek at tonight's show...

Hosts Emma Willis and Marvin Humes kick us off tonight by introducing the coaches, who all talk of getting more and more competitive after last weekends night's opener.

First to try and win over the panel was 19-year-old mummy's boy Jamie Johnson. The teenager's cover of Ne-Yo's So Sick had Kylie dancing in her chair followed by a press of the buzzer, along with Ricky Wilson and Sir Tom Jones. The teenager took a while to decide before eventually opting to join Team Kylie.

Former Voice of Ireland hopeful Mairead Conlon was next out onto the stage, saying beforehand that she'll give into pressure from her parents to go to college if it's a no from the coaches. The youngster wowed with Purple Rain to get all but, deciding to join Team Tom because the Welsh legend reminded her of her own dad.

Two similar artists were then pitched together by the show's editors with Lewis Clay first out, singing Areosmith hit Cryin'. No one turned for the budding performer, with Will criticising the performance for being "flat", but Lewis insisted he had no regrets.

Meanwhile painter and decorator Jimmy Weston played Eagles hit Desperado and got a much better reception with three coaches turning around. The 39-year-old controversially chose to join Team Kylie over Team Ricky, with the latter admitting: "I thought I had him."

A familiar face hits screens afterwards in the form of ex Emmerdale actress Kelsey-Beth Crossley. The former child star sung Fell In Love With A Boy for the panel, saying she always wanted to be a singer ahead of an actress. Kesley-Beth's performance prompted a bidding far between Kylie and Ricky, with the Kaiser Chiefs star finally winning his first act of the night.

55-year-old Bob Blakeley is one of this year's oldest competitors and the experience arguably helped as he effortlessly performs Cry Me A River to get the audience on their feet, but no judges turned around.

From one of the oldest artists to one of the youngest as 17-year-old "vintage fan" Sophie May Williams was next to sing to the backs of the coaches. Performing Time After Time, the teen teased out the return of Sneaky Willy, who waited until the last possible second to press his buzzer

21-year-old Miles Anthony reveals he had originally been set to audition last year but had to back out at the last minute due to his niece becoming ill. Back for a second shot, Miles' performance of I (Who Have Nothing) impressed with the production but the poor vocals saw no chairs spinning.

Closing the show was music and politics fan Jermain Jackman who belted out Jennifer Hudson hit And I'm Telling You. Once again, Will played it tactically by only spinning at the last possible note to win the teenager for his growing team.
