Emma Willis hosts the first instalment of the singing competition's live final as the remaining four acts battle it out for that coveted record contract. At the end of the night, three acts will progress forward to tomorrow night's finale, but only one will be crowned the winner of The Voice UK. Jennifer Hudson, Sir Tom Jones, will.i.am and Gavin Rossdale can give their acts as much help and encouragement as possible, but ultimately it will be the voting public who call the shots.
Hosted by Emma Willis and Marvin Humes, the show features four musician coaches: will.i.am, Boy George, Paloma Faith and Ricky Wilson, who will coach only the most talented vocalists. The show's innovative format features three stages of competition: the first begins with the blind audition, then the competition enters into a battle phase, and finally, the live performance. The show's casting team is working with the music industry and searching the country for the best singers to bring to the blind audition process.
During the blind auditions, the decisions from the coaches are based solely on voice and not on looks. The coaches hear the contestants perform, but they don't get to see them - thanks to rotating chairs.
