How does the show work?

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

After each performance, all the coaches’ chairs turn so they can give feedback and encouragement, even if they didn’t press their buttons.

Those that make it through the auditions head into the battles. The Voice UK Kids sees three way Battles as the group of acts sing off for one place in the semi-final.

And there are no steals on The Voice Kids – meaning no second chances for the coaches.

The final four acts in each team then sing in the semi-final for a spot in the spectacular live finale – with viewers choosing the ultimate winner.

The prize is £30,000 towards the winner's music career and a family trip to Disneyland Paris.
