Battle Rounds 1

As The Voice UK's battles commence, the premise is simple: one song - two voices = one winner.

Superstar coaches Kylie Minogue, Sir Tom Jones, and Ricky Wilson are joined by their battle advisors - trusted fellow pop stars and industry executives who, alongside each coach, dedicate themselves to developing each artist and sharing the secrets of their success.

Kylie welcomes trusted friend and Scissor Sisters star Jake Shears. Ricky is joined by singer-songwriter Katy B. Sir Tom Jones is joined by Brit award-winning rapper Tinie Tempah, and is joined by friend and founding member of the Black Eyed Peas, Dante Santiago.

The first round of battles sees each coach pair up their artists to sing against each other in a competitive vocal showdown. The coaches and battle advisors mentor and train them through songs and rehearse with them. The two acts then meet in the boxing ring to sing their heart out. After each battle, the artists' coach must decide who will progress to the knockout stage, and who will be sent home.
