The Voice 2014 spoilers: Preview tonight's final battle rounds!

the-voice-2014-battles-2

The final battle rounds of The Voice UK 2014 are here and so is our weekly spoiler-filled preview.

It's another marathon show this evening with 12 more performances which will see 13 acts (Kylie Minogue still has her steal) going through to the knockouts.

Kicking things off for us are Team Ricky as Chris Royal and Jamie Lovett face off in a battle over Adele's Rolling In The Deep. It's a case of falsetto v "Rock n Roll roar" as the pair compete for a spot in the next round. Ricky finds it hard to sum up the performance but Will is on hand with a suggestion, comparing it to trying to split Spagetti-os and Ramen, obviously.

Next we see Kylie Minogue clash with her own acts Rachael O’Connor and Amelia O’Connell as she pits the two sixteen year olds against each other. With the girls both members of Team Kylie there's no steal available and it leads to the pair wanting to out-do each other, much to Kylie's frustration. The Aussie star tells them that weren't being "sensible" and should be "choosy" when it came to showing off their voices.

The Voice

Kiki deVille and James Byron faced off next on Team Will and the Black Eyed Peas is star after "Amazingness, vulnerability and confidence"... so, not too much then. Fortunately the pair both impress their mentor with a "flawless and immaculate" performance but it leaves Will having to run backstage to avoid making a decision.

The first battle for team Tom tonight is Vicky Jones and Melissa Gill who prepare to sing Keep Me Hanging On, only for Sir Tom to change the song to Pink's Just Give Me A Reason after five minutes in rehearsals. In the battle of Rock versus Retro there's plenty of coloured hair sharing the stage with some big voices.

We're back to Ricky next with trainee lawyer Myles Evans singing off against judo hunk Max Murphy with a classic track by The Beatles. Ricky's left feeling a little "weird" when Myles reveals he's not too sure of the song but fortunately both boys end up making the Kaiser Chiefs singer beaming like a proud father with their ultimate performance.

The Voice

There's a jazz battle next with Sophie-May Williams facing Cherri Prince on Team Will.i.am as freshness takes on experience. There's scatting, long dresses and big hair as the girls sing The Lovecats by The Cure in a bid to make it through to the knockout rounds. Mentor Will plays with words as he stalls actually making a decision between Sophisticated Sophie and Cherry-on-top Cherri.

Joe Keegan tries to out-sing Jamie Johnson on Team Kylie afterwards as the boys sing One Republic's Counting Stars. With no steals available there's an all battle going on between the two friends and it all ends in tears for mentor Kylie as she has to decide which of the pair are going home for good.

On Team Will and there's a battle between favourites Iesher Haughton and Femi "looks a bit like Barack Obama" Santiago. The pair's performance of Stop, Look, Listen leaves Will regretting the pairing, Sir Tom name dropping and host Emma Willis in one of the coaches' chairs.

Now while bitchiness isn't uncommon between the acts in the battle rounds - put on for the cameras or otherwise - we didn't quite expect to see it between Georgia Harrup and Laverne Scott-Roberts - what would Adele think!? The pair are given 22 by Taylor Swift to sing ('cause it makes even Sir Tom feel 22 again, apparently) but bicker over who gets to sing which lines.

The Voice

In the final battle of the night for Team Kylie it's duo Gemyni and another favourite in the form of Jade Mayjean Peters. These 'trio' battles always feel a bit awkward and it's no different this time with even the twins themselves struggling to co-ordinate things as the group prepare to perform Britney hit Baby One More Time. There's a tense silence as Kylie ponders her winner which is eventually broken by the biggest scream of the show yet from the victorious act.

As the battles wind down we turn to Team Tom for his last competition with music teacher Gary Poole facing Elesha Moses, who is performing at the battles for the second time. Will reckons Elesha was better by herself this time around but both he and Kylie appear to be left disappointed with Sir Tom's decision on who to take through.

The Voice

The last battle of the night - and of the series this year - is on Team Ricky and between Luciee Marie Closier and Jazz Bates. The two young singers both have very unique voices and we've not tried to hide that we're rather big fans of Jazz. The duo compete this evening in a Bruno Mars duet that sees all the coaches wanting to steal the loser.
