The Voice 2014 live shows to start Saturday 22 with results the same night

The Voice UK 2014

The start date for The Voice UK live shows has been confirmed.

New hosts Emma Willis and Marvin Humes will present the first live round of the singing contest on Saturday, March 22.

The live show will see the then 12 remaining acts perform for a place in the semi-final.

If the competition follows last year's format, then after all three acts in each team have performed, Kylie Minogue, Tom Jones, and Ricky Wilson will choose one to progress straight through to the next round - leaving the remaining two on each team to go head to head in a public vote.

One will then be eliminated in each team to leave 8 acts for the following weekend's show.

The live show is currently scheduled to begin at 7PM on Saturday, March running until 8:40PM.

A short 10 minute break for the National Lottery Draw sees the results air from 8:50PM through until 9:25PM.

The Kaiser Chiefs and Shakria are both set to perform on The Voice UK live shows this year although it's not been confirmed who will be the guest star for the first live show.

Currently 28 acts remain in the competition with this weekend's knockout rounds seeing the final 12 revealed as each coach cuts their teams of seven down to three.
