Six young singers are through to the final – tonight they perform live for viewers’ votes.

After a thrilling week of blind auditions, hard-fought battles and a nail-biting semi-final, the remaining six young singers will take to the stage tonight for the grand final of The Voice Kids 2018, with Emma Willis on hand to oversee proceedings (and comfort the disappointed).

The Voice Kids

The coaches work is over… now the audience decide

TV Times caught up with Emma to ask her what it takes to win…

‘You can’t call it, because it’s all down to the public vote. You watch the singers all the way through the competition thinking, ‘‘It’s gonna be them, it’s gonna be them’’. But then, on the day, it can all change at the last minute. So there’s no formula for what to do, apart from making the public like you. That’s it!’

And what of the fame that will follow…?

‘They shouldn’t be thinking, ‘I want to go on The Voice Kids and be famous’ – it should be about the experience,’ says Emma. ‘We’ve got to let kids be kids and protect them for as long
as possible.

‘
I think we should just nurture the talent they have, and make sure things happen at the right time and not too quickly,’ she adds.

Up to now our pint-sized performers have only had to impress coaches Danny Jones, Pixie Lott and will.i.am. But now they must sing live for the first time for viewers’ votes!

With a £30,000 bursary towards their music education, and a family holiday to Disneyland Paris up for grabs, who will be crowned champion of The Voice Kids?
