The Voice 2016: Ricky Wilson picks his finalists for the live shows

The Voice

The Voice UK 2016 finalists for the live shows in Team Ricky Wilson have been confirmed tonight.

The now veteran coach made some REALLY difficult calls this evening in the knockout rounds.

All eight of Ricky's acts took to the stage together as they made a bid to get through to the live finals of this year's show.

One at a time, each artist stepped forward into the spotlight to perform their own song choice, hoping to prove to Ricky that he should take them through to the live stages.

All the coaches offered comments but only Ricky had the responsibility of picking which three acts to take through to the The Voice UK live shows 2016 on 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 choices 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, saying: "I'm rooting for them, really deeply, I think they deserve it." Kevin, who was stolen from Team Paloma, was overwhelmed and described the night was one of the best of his life.

The third and final act through was Jolan because "they show me their soul when they sing". "I honestly had no idea this would ever happen," a near speechless Jolan said.

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