The Voice UK 2017: Public to vote for who makes live shows in new twist

The Voice UK coaches

Viewers will decide who makes the live shows on The Voice UK 2017 tonight, it's been revealed.

It's the latest twist to the show now it's on ITV, with the knockout rounds also airing live for the very first time.

Over two weeks, the line up for the live finals will be decided with shows on both Saturday and Sunday this weekend and next.

A total of six acts have made the knock outs in each team: The five battle winners in the teams and each coach's battle round steal.

Each Knockout round will focus on one coach, starting with Team Jennifer Hudson and Team Sir Tom Jones this Saturday and Sunday night respectively. Will.i.am and Gavin Rossdale's teams will be in the spotlight next weekend.

In each knockout episode, the six remaining acts in the team will be slashed to three as they sing for their mentor and fellow coaches, as well as a live studio audience and viewers at home.

It will then be down to the public to vote for their favourites in that team.

The two acts with the most votes from viewers will go straight through to the live quarter-final.

The team's coach will then be able to pick one of their four remaining acts to also make the live shows.

The three acts that make it through will be one step closer to the chance of winning a recording contract with Polydor Records.

As well as the knockout performances plus public vote and results, the Knockout shows will also see musical performances from the coaches themselves.

The Voice UK knock outs air tonight (Saturday) at 8:30PM and Sunday at 7:45PM on ITV.
