The Voice 2014 preview: First look at the battle rounds!

Here's a first look at the next stage of The Voice UK as the battle rounds get underway.

The blind auditions are complete and the four coaches - Will.i.am, Kylie Minogue, Sir Tom Jones and Ricky Wilson - have chosen 12 acts each.

Now begins the process of whittling them down by half for the live shows - and that means the return of the battle rounds.

Emma Willis and Marvin Humes host as the coaches are joined by four advisers - Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears, singer Katy B, award-winning rapper Tinie Tempah and Black Eyed Peas founder Dante Santiago - who give the acts the benefit of their experience, before pitting them against each other in head-to-head musical performances.

It's then up to the coaches alone to decide who to keep and who to eliminate.

However, it's not necessarily over for the losers as the coaches have a chance to `steal' a rejected artist for their own team, giving them a total of seven acts to take into the knockout rounds

The Voice UK airs this Saturday night at 7PM on BBC One.
