PICTURES! The Voice UK Kids first auditions as children face the coaches

The Voice Kids UK first look

The Voice Kids comes to the UK for the first time this Saturday night and here's a first look.

Fresh from his stint on The Voice UK, global music star will.i.am returns to his big red chair alongside pop princess Pixie Lott and McFly frontman Danny Jones on the three-coach panel.

Presented by Emma Willis, the new series is open to talented young soloists between the ages of seven and 14.

Just as with the main show, the show kicks off with the Blind Auditions, with each coach needing to fill a team of 12 singers.

The youngsters perform to a live band headed by music director David Tench – but can they persuade the coaches to hit their buttons?

If a coach decides to press their buzzer, they'll secure that act for their team, although if more than one coach turns it'll be the kid that picks which team to join.

And even if no coaches press their buzzer, they'll still turn at the end of the performance so they can give feedback and encouragement, even if they didn’t press their buttons.

So who's on the very first show tonight?

Acts we meet on The Voice Kids this evening include Ryan who performs Hey There Delilah by The Plain White T's, Jessica who sings Somebody To Love by Queen and Adam who belts out When You Love Someone by James TW.

Charlotte performs The Greatest by Sia, Chi sings Oh Happy Day from Sister Act 2 and Lil' T performs Shutdown by Skepta.

More contestants include Jude who sings Treasure by Bruno Mars, Leah who's audition song is Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid and Riccardo who performs Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen.

Finally, Courtney performs Nutbush City Limits by Ike & Tina Turner.

The Voice UK Kids starts at 7:45PM on ITV Saturday night.
