Donel Mangena wowed on The Voice UK once again this Saturday night.

Last week saw the start of the knockout rounds and they conclude this Saturday evening.

At the beginning of the knock outs, six acts remain in each of the four teams, led by mentors Will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson, Olly Murs and Sir Tom Jones.

In the knock outs each act has just one song to prove they should be in the live shows.

All the coaches will offer their views but only the acts' mentor will decide who goes through to next weekend's semi-final.

In the latest episode on Saturday night, Team Will's Donel Mangena opened up the show.

The 16-year-old student from Southampton performed Finesse by Bruno Mars.

And Will.i.am went on to pick Donel for his team in the live shows starting next weekend.

Donel joins Team Will alongside 18-year-old Tai, who made the live shows in last week's knockouts.

Meanwhile, currently left on Team Tom are 20-year-old Lucy Milburn, 18-year-old student Ruti Olajugbagbe, 46-year-old Choir Master Wayne Ellington and 29-year-old Chantelle Nandi, stolen from Team Will.

Contestants on Team Olly in the knockouts are 18-year-old student Kirby Frost, 29-year-old musician Jamie Grey, 27-year-old student Lauren Bannon and 21-year-old Shane McCormack.

Finally in Team Jennifer as things stand are duo Belle Voci - made up of ppals 26-year-old Sophie from Norwich and 25-year-old Emily - 33-year-old Jason Nicholson-Porter, 16-year-old music student Gayatri Nair and 20-year-old Rhianna Abrey, stolen from Team Will.

Those who make it through the knockouts will be one step closer to the chance of winning a recording contract with Polydor Records.

They'll next perform LIVE for the first time in the semi-final on Saturday March 31.

The Voice UK 2018 continues Saturday nights on ITV.
