The Voice UK Top 20: Our predictions from the battle rounds!

The Voice UK

This weekend The Voice UK Top 40 will become a Top 20, as the coaches each choose five artists to take through to the live shows.

The panel will pitch singers against one each other in a round of battles, with one singer in each pair progressing, and another missing out.

Here are our predictions on the outcomes of the matters, and who will make the Top 20.

Be sure to tune in this Saturday at 7.00pm and Sunday at 7.30pm to see the actual results!

Team Will.i.am

Heshima Thompson vs. [tag]Tyler James[/tag]
- We loved Heshima's take on Dynamite, but we reckon Tyler James has the advantage here.

[tag]Joelle Moses[/tag] vs. Jenny Jones
- Joelle Moses had all four coaches turn around for her, and we're sure she'll make the live shows

Frances Wood vs. [tag]Kate Read[/tag]
- By far the toughest battle to call in this group, with two very evenly matched teenager female singers, but we're hoping it goes in Kate's favour.

J Marie Cooper vs. [tag]Sophie Griffin[/tag]
- J Marie Cooper was a stand out from her first audition, but we love Sophie so much we're backing her to surprise us all!

Jay Norton vs. [tag]Jaz Ellington[/tag]
- While we're expecting some surprises, we'll be very shocked if Jaz misses out on the live shows.

Team Jessie J

Jessica Hammond vs. [tag]Vince Kidd[/tag]
- Another tough battle to call, but we tip Vince to have the edge on Jessica this weekend, despite her being one of the favourites.

David Faulkner vs. [tag]Cassius Henry[/tag]
- R&B star Cassius has the experience to win this one

[tag]Toni Warne[/tag] vs. Kirsten Joy
- As much as we love Kirsten, this battle is for Toni's to lose.

[tag]Ben Kelly[/tag] vs. Ruth Ann St Luce
- After her pitchy performance in the auditions, Ruth has a lot of work to do, so we tip Ben to come out on top.

Indie and Pixie vs. [tag]Becky Hill[/tag]
- We're backing (non-Scottish) singer Becky to win this female fight

Team Tom Jones

Adam Isaac vs. [tag]Denise Morgan[/tag]
- Denise should have the experience and vocals to out-sing her younger rival here.

Matt and Sueleen Fletcher vs. [tag]Lindsay Butler[/tag]
- We're backing Lindsay to outshine the double vocals from Matt and Sueleen, but we're still surprised the coaches turn around for them in the first place

Deniece Pearson vs. [tag]Ruth Brown[/tag]
- A tough battle that could easily go either way, and we're siding with Ruth after her monstrous note in the auditions.

Barbara Bryceland vs. [tag]Leanne Mitchell[/tag]
- Two female vocal powerhouses who have been trying for years to make it, it's going to be a tough one to decide and we're backing Leanne.

Aundrea Nyle vs. [tag]Sam Buttery[/tag]
- We reckon Sam has the voice and style to pull this one off.

Team Danny O'Donoghue

Bill Downs vs. [tag]Max Milner[/tag]
- We're tipping Max to edge out his rockstar opponent here, but it's going to be close.

[tag]David Julien[/tag] vs. John James Newman
- We think David will come out on top in this clash

[tag]Aleks Josh[/tag] vs. Emmy J Mac
- It's hard to compare these two singers, and while we'd love to see more of Emmy, we're expecting Aleks to win Danny's vote.

[tag]Hannah Berney[/tag] vs. Murray Hockridge
- Hannah has to win this!

[tag]Bo Bruce[/tag] vs. Vince Freeman
- Bo's unique spin on tracks is almost sure to help her beat Vince
