The Voice Kids is coming to an end this weekend, with the latest crop of rising stars set to battle it out in the final.

The junior edition of the ITV show started earlier this month, with a group of talented hopefuls aged from seven to 14 showing off their vocals in a bid to win over the panel.

After two rounds of blind auditions, the remaining singers are set to go head to head to see who will be crowned the 2023 winner, with a seven night trip to Universal Orlando Resort in Florida also up for grabs.

The judges for the children’s version of the show are Pixie Lott, Ronan Keating, Danny Jones from McFly and Will.i.am, who is also known for being a coach on the grown up edition.

They have been sat in the show’s famous red chairs, while Emma Willis has been on hosting duty.

Willis said she’d spotted “loads” of future stars so far in the competition.

“They still have so much time ahead of them so I think we will definitely see a lot of them in the future,” she said.

“They just need to keep persevering and I have no doubt they will.”

Who are the contestants?

The celebs have their teams in place, with Jones coaching Abigail, Will, Alexandra and Oscar, who has already had a taste of fame as he played Neil the baby in Gavin And Stacey.

Chart star Lott is overseeing Hayla, Elyssa, Martha and Tiara Leigh, while Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.am has Andrea, Shanice, Theo, Elim and Tai’jah in his camp.

Twins Andrea and Shanice have taken the contest by storm, with the coaches fighting over them after they wowed with a rendition of the Stevie Wonder and Ariana Grande version of Faith.

Keating's singers are Danny, Niamh, Yazmin and Jarlaith, and he has said his contestants are “incredibly strong” and have “a diverse range of talent”.

He said the process has been “quite overwhelming at times and quite emotional”.

“I have kids the same age as some of the talent that stood on stage and to see these kids with such confidence and such ability at that age is mesmerising,” said the Boyzone star.
