So the first Voice Kids on ITV was very cute! I must admit to being presently surprised at the level of the kids' voices. The ITV show features children aged 7-14. Here's our top 10 stars:


10 The fourth episode brought a stunning audition by Victoria from Bath. The 14 year old sung O Mio Babbino Caro, which brought chills into my room. It was a professional and delicate performance of the Italian classic. There was only a few opera kid singers who got the coaches to turn around, so bravo Victoria.
09 Another 14-year-old who stunned the coaches was Marby. Though the singing was incredible, it was her sheer confidence which really brought the roof down! Smiling and dancing as her lungs were on fire, the Kildare singer sung Slip, a pop song by Stooshe. A powerful vocal range impressed not only me, but the Voice Kids judge trio aswell.
08 Another powerful and brilliant audition came from 12-year-old Courtney from Hartlepool. The shy youngster sung Ike and Tina Turner's Nutbush City Limits. To my shock, only Danny Jones turned around to this energetic routine. Courtney has already featured on Teen Star and UK Open Mic.
07 Will.I.AM said before this audition that he had a good feeling. Will was right,  after a superb vocal performance the coaches had all turned around for 13 year old Buckinghamshire singer Francesca. The teenager delivered a rendition of If I Ain't Got You by Alicia Keys. Apparently Francesca used to get up every morning at 06:15 to practice singing.
06 Okay, so I am slightly biased about this - as I love Running Up That Hill by Kate Bush! Brooke from Milton Keynes delivered a perfect audition. She got two coaches buzzing and looked chuffed! The 13 year old has got a lot of attention, previously featuring on Michael McIntyre's Big Show and winning an award for upcoming female artist.
05 Norwich boy Perry delivered a faultless version of Sam Smith's tune Stay With Me. Despite his decent vocal range, it looked like nobody would turn around - until Will.I.AM buzzed and span at the last tone - with Perry showing dis-belief and delight!
04 Jess from Essex proved she was a star in the making with a superb tone, powerful sections throughout and confident rapping. Two coaches agreed. The thirteen year old began singing as a toddler and even appeared in a school show, acting as Alphaba from Wicked.
03 It's not often that you get two coaches spin the moment you sing, but that's exactly what happened to Adam from County Clare. He attempted When You Love Someone by James TW and shined bright from the off. He was the Bookie's favourite to win the show. Adam previously wrote and composed his own single 'Wish Upon a Star' in 2015.
02 One of the cutest auditions goes to Riccardo, singing Jennifer Hudson’s Hallelujah. He got a clean sweep of coaches after an emotional and powerful vocal which got a raw from the crowd. Riccardo's voice just got better and better as the song progressed. Brilliant.
1 When you pick a judge's song, you HAVE to be good. Lewis quickly got Pixie Lott's attention when he performed Cry Me Out. The star was smiling, swaying and dancing in her chair - before ultimately turning around for the 12 year old from Swindon. The singer's voice was powerful, and his confidence to perform the song infront of Pixie has to be admired. Making him my star pupil, well done Lewis!
