This year, ITV’s The Voice UK is back for its twelfth series, continuing the journey to find the next vocal sensation.

Coaches will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones, Olly Murs and Anne-Marie have returned to their iconic spinning chairs, ready to discover and nurture the UK’s finest singing talents.

The competition kicked off with the blind auditions, a nerve-wracking stage where contestants performed while the coaches faced away. Those that made it through faced the callbacks, where each coach selected a trio of acts to continue.

In the semi-final, the top three in each team were whittled down to just one to compete in the final.
