The Voice UK 2018 knock outs line up, songs, mentors and new twist revealed

The Voice UK 2018 knockouts contestants and song list

The Voice UK 2018 is approaching the live finals with just one stage to go, and it’s the Knock outs next.


After the battles concluded last month, 24 acts remain in the competition, six on each of the four teams.

It’s now time for the Knockouts as two acts make the live finals in each of the teams. Here’s all you need to know include in the line up and song choices.

When are The Voice UK knock outs?

The Voice UK 2018 knockout rounds will air over two weeks, and conclude tonight (March 24)

Each show will see half of the remaining 24 contestants singing.

The Voice UK knock outs finish tonight on Saturday at 7PM on ITV.

How do The Voice UK knock outs work this year?

In the knockouts, each singer will perform once for the coaches and a live studio audience.


Unlike last year, the show will NOT be live itself and the public will not get a say.

The panel will all offer up their views on who was best, but the power over who goes through is solely in the hands of each mentor.

In tonight’s episode, the remaining three singers from each team will perform before their coach must pick one to go through to the live shows.

The Voice UK guest mentors

Coaches Jennifer Hudson,, Sir Tom Jones and Olly Murs can pick only two acts from their teams to progress in the competition, so there are some tough decisions to make.

Helping the coaches make those decisions are very special guests Craig David, members of The Black Eyed Peas, Kylie Minogue, Leona Lewis and The Voice UK’s reigning champion, Mo Jamil.
