The Voice UK 2022: who are judges with Tom Jones and Anne-Marie, who’s host Emma Willis, new series start date
ITV singing competition The Voice returns for its eleventh season, and Emma Willis is back as host
and live on Freeview channel 276
The series is returning for its eleventh season and will see the return of its panel of coaches and host Emma Willis.
This is eveything you need to know about the new season of The Voice UK:
How does The Voice UK work?
The audition stage of the competition sees contestants sing on stage in front of an audience, but the four judges have their backs to the singer.
If one of the judges likes the audtionee’s sound, they can press a big red button and their chair will turn around.
If just one judge has turned around during the song, the singer will automatically join their team, but if more than one judge has pressed the button, the singer will get to pick which judge she wants to work with.
Of course, in many cases, none of the judges will turn around, meaning the auditionee will leave the competition.
After the blind auditions, the successful artists progress to the battles, where the singers within each team compete against each other with the same song - their coach then chooses which of their singers will advance.
The next stage is the knockouts, where those in the same team are competing against each other, although this time they will each sing different songs.
The final round is the live shows which sees the top artists from each team compete until one winner is chosen.
Who are The Voice UK coaches?
When the show first came out in 2011 the coach lineup consisted of Tom Jones, will.i.am, Jessie J and Danny O’Donoghue.
