The Voice Kids 2019: Meet the contestants in tonight's first blind auditions

Ave & Alfie perform.

Here's a run down of the first set of acts hoping to impress on The Voice Kids tonight.

The Voice Kids returns for 2019 on ITV this evening, Saturday June 8 at 8PM.

This year there have been a few changes, with Jessie J joining the coaches.

She sits in the spinning red chairs alongside original Voice Kids star coaches will.i.am, Danny Jones and Pixie Lott.

In another switch up, this year the competition is opened up to duos for the first time. Both solo singers and double acts, aged seven to 14, are eligible to come and sing their hearts out in a bid to get a coveted chair turn.

After each performance, regardless of whether they’ve won a place with will, Danny, Pixie or Jessie, all four coaches will turn to give the singers words of advice and encouragement.

Emma Willis is again hosting the show and, throughout the Blind Auditions, cheering on from the wings as she joins with the hopefuls’ founder fan club members - their friends and families.

Meet tonight's first set of hopeful contestants below and tune in to The Voice Kids tonight to watch their auditions and see who gets a spin.

The Voice Kids, Saturday 8 June, 8PM on ITV.
