The Voice UK 2018 finalists: Who’s in the live shows REVEALED

The Voice UK contestants in the live shows

Who’s in the The Voice UK 2018 live shows? The finalists have been revealed after contestants faced the semi-final..


Last month saw the four coaches complete their four teams with Olly Murs, Sir Tom Jones, and Jennifer Hudson having each picked ten talented artists.

The battles then took place as the coaches cut their teams in half with a series of head to head musical duets that only one act could win.

However the steals were back, giving each coach the ability to pick up an extra acts that their rivals sent home, pinching them for their own teams in the knockouts.

In the knockouts the then remaining six acts in each team became two for the live shows.

This weekend saw the live semi-final where the public got their say for the first time this series. After all eight acts performed live, viewers voted for their favourite.

The four acts with the fewest votes went home while those with the most went into next weekend’s grand final.
