The Voice UK preview: Kade Smith sings for a spot in the live shows

Here’s a first look at this weekend’s The Voice UK 2018 knockouts as Kade Smith sings.


Last weekend saw the end of the battle rounds following seven rounds of blind auditions.

Currently six acts remain in each of the four teams, led by mentors, Jennifer Hudson, Olly Murs and Sir Tom Jones.

In the knockouts each act has just one song to prove they should be in the live shows.

All the coaches will offer comment but only the contestants’ their mentor will decide who goes through.

In this first preview we see Team Olly’s Kade Smith singing.

The 17-year-old Window Cleaner from Leicester performs Express Yourself By Charles Wright.
