This evening was the first half of the knockout rounds as Ricky made his choices from the final eight in his team.

"This is a very emotional part of the show and I fought for you all in very different ways. None of you tonight have let me down," Ricky said before making his picks for the live shows.

"Life's full of tough decisions, this isn't one of them," Ricky said as he picked Chloe to be the first member of his team in the live finals.

Ricky's second decision was Kevin Simm, who he had stolen from Paloma Faith back in the battles, saying: "I'm rooting for them, really deeply, I think they deserve it."

The third and final act through was Jolan, who previously auditioned back in 2014, with Ricky saying that he "showed me his soul when he sings".

But the result mean that we said goodbye to Brooklyn Richards, Kagan, Mia Sylvester, Rachel Ann and Aliesha Lobuczek.

KEVIN SIMM

The Voice - Episode 4

​Audition song: ​'Chandelier' - Sia
Battle song: 'Spotlight' - Jennifer Hudson against Faith Nelson
Knockout song: 'Wings' - Birdy

Age: ​35

35-year-old Kevin has had a taste of success having even won a BRIT Award when he was a part of Liberty X.

After the band split in 2007, Kevin signed a solo deal but things didn't go to plan.

"I signed with a label and recorded my own album. At that point, I was like, 'This is going to be awesome, I'm going to be massive'. Then it just got shelved, pretty much," he said back at his audition. "What can you do? It puts you off music a little bit. It did knock my confidence a lot."

While Kevin has continued to sing, he's also gone on to start a family and it's his kids who have spurred him on to audition for The Voice UK.

Admitting to having "nightmare" about no one turning in his blind audition, Kevin got all four coaches spinning with a cover of a Sia track.

In the battles he lost to Faith Nelson on Paloma Faith's team but was snapped up by Ricky Wilson who took him through to the live shows on his team in the knockouts.
