The Voice UK is now no longer about the voice

Will.i.am (The Voice 2014)

It's The Voice battle rounds tonight but it's no longer about just being a good singer.

The remaining 48 acts are now being judged by the coaches on "the full package", the, err, 'X factor' if you will.

In tonight's show, Ricky says: "It's not actually about the voice any more."

He warns the twelve singers in his team: "You're all good but it's not about being good anymore it's about being great."

Sir Tom Jones says: "The blind auditions were great all around, we know who can sing now we've got find a complete package."

Kylie Minogue teases before the battles begin: "The blind auditions were incredible. I just think the battles are doing to be electric."

And Will.i.am says: "[The blind auditions] were cool, but now it's battle time."

He raps: "The bells going to starting ringing, ding, ding, who's going come out swinging? Get ready to slice, dice and do everything nice, it's time for the battles."

The Voice UK airs tonight from 7PM on BBC One.
