The second round of The Voice UK takes place this weekend.
With the blind auditions complete, superstar coaches Jessie J, will.i.am, Danny O’Donoghue and Tom Jones now each have ten artists on their respective teams.
But their mission to find the UK’s next great voice gets tougher as they must now divide their teams in to five pairs.
Trusted teammates become singing rivals as each pair tries to outdo each other in a battle duet.
Expect some tough decisions ahead as each coach must choose just one artist per battle duet to put through to the live shows. Who will be knocked out… and who will be left singing?
The teams are:
Team will.i.am: J Marie Cooper, Heshima Thompson, Frances Wood, Joelle Moses, Jay Norton, Kate Read, Tyler James, Jenny Jones, Sophie Griffin, Jaz Ellington.
Team Jessie J: Jessica Hammond, Toni Warne, Ben Kelly, Vince Kidd, David Faulkner, Cassius Henry, Kirsten Joy, Ruth-Ann St. Luce, Indie and Pixie, Becky Hall.
Team Sir Tom Jones: Samuel Buttery, Aundrea Nyle, Adam Isaac, Barbara Bryceland, Matt and Sueleen, Deniece Pearson, Leanne Mitchell, Denise Morgan, Lindsey Butler, Ruth Brown.
Team Danny O’Donoghue: Max Milner, David Julien, Vince Freeman, Aleks Josh, Murray Hockridge, Hannah Berney, Bill Downs, Bo Bruce, Emmy J Mac, John James Newton.
