Blind Auditions 1

Music superstars Sir Tom Jones, Jessie J, and Danny O'Donoghue return to the famous red chairs in their mission to find the UK's next big vocal talent.

The Voice returns, as the search for the UK's next exciting vocal talent begins. Unconcerned with appearance, the auditions are about one thing and one thing only: the voice.

The series kicks off with a spectacular group performance by the four megastar coaches - Jessie J,, Danny O'Donoghue and Sir Tom Jones, and the first of the blind auditions.

The famous red chairs are back and turning as each coach carefully picks the voices he or she wants to work with, based solely on what they hear and their musical intuition - and with the chance to be personally mentored and taught by four music superstars, the artists will be hoping that at least one coach hits their famous button and turns their chair for them.

Each coach must form a team of 12 artists, and they'll use every trick, every name drop, every statistic to persuade the very best to join their team.

Once each coach has a full team, they will advise and train them through the remaining stages until one artist is named 'The Voice UK'.
