The Voice UK 2020 results: First finalists in the live shows confirmed - knockouts recap!

The Voice 2020 recap! Who's in the live shows? First knockout results!

Team Tom: So Diva, Jonny Brooks and Zion.

The Voice UK 2020's first contestants in the live shows have been confirmed after tonight's knockouts.

Ella Eyre, Ellie Goulding, Shania Twain and Little Mix star Jesy Nelson all joined Meghan Trainor, Olly Murs, Sir Tom Jones and will.i.am respectively as their guest mentors for The Knockouts.

In the knockouts, each superstar coach will select two of their acts to go through to the live semi-final which means 16 acts will be knocked out of the competition.

However, one lucky singer or trio can now be saved with the introduction of the Lifeline vote, allowing the public to vote to put their favourite into the semi-final.

Following the second Knockouts show (Saturday 21st March) the vote will open via the official app for the public to have their say on which of the 16 performers set to leave the contest to offer The Lifeline to.

Here's a full recap of all the results from this weekend as the coaches each chose their first act for the live semi-final...
