The Voice 2018 preview: Mark Asari and Loaded Sista do battle

Here’s a preview from The Voice UK’s first battle performances as Mark Asari and Loaded Sista face off.


Olly Murs,, Sir Tom Jones, and Jennifer Hudson are back on TV this Saturday night.

The coaches have had a change of clothes, ready for the battle rounds.

After seven weeks of blind auditions, the successful acts now face a brand new challenge.

The battle rounds begin on Saturday and here’s a first preview as Mark Asari and Loaded Sista sing off.

The Team Will singers will be seen performing Don’t Let Go by En Vogue.

But who will their mentor, Black Eyed Peas star Will, declare the winner and secure their place in the next round?


Ahead of tomorrow night’s show and results, you can watch a preview clip of their battle performance above.

In the battle rounds, each of the coaches will pair up the contestants in their teams in a series of head to head musical duels.

Both acts will share a song but only one of them can claim the victory.

After each performance, all coaches will comment but their mentor alone will pick one winner and potentially send the other home.

The loser’s only chance to stay in the competition comes from the other coaches.

Once again The Voice UK sees the return of the steals, allowing each coach to take an act through that their rivals reject for their own team.

Just as with the blind auditions earlier this year, if more than one coach wants the same act, it’ll be the contestant themselves who decides which team to join.


However the coaches can only pick just one act to steal, meaning they’re sure to be super picky with their decision.

By the end of the Battles Rounds, each team will have with just six acts going into the Knockouts, ahead of the live shows later this year.

The Voice UK’s 2018 battle rounds will air over three Saturday nights beginning this weekend.


The first round starts this Saturday night at 8:30PM on ITV.
