Niall Horan joins The Voice Kids coaches for live final performance

The former One Direction star will perform on stage as coaches Will.I.Am, Pixie Lott and Danny Jones find out which of their young stars has won the public vote


The first series of The Voice Kids will go out with a bang on Sunday night as former One Directioner Niall Horan and The Vamps take to the stage for special live performances.


The pop stars will join coaches Will.I.Am, Pixie Lott and McFly’s Danny Jones in a host of star-studded performances, as they bid farewell to the young hopefuls and crown an ultimate winner, who will go on to be the next Michael Jackson or, perhaps a little more realistically, the next Andrea Begley.

Meanwhile and The Voice UK winner Mo Adeniran will also be popping in to give the young finalists some advice.

Horan, the biggest coup of the bunch, is having a busy year: the Irish singer released his second solo single “Slow Hands” in May ahead of the release of his debut album, which has yet to be formally announced, and earlier this week he announced a large tour that will kick off in August, taking him through Ireland, the UK, Australia and Japan before finishing up in the USA.

The show shrugged off initial chatter of controversy surrounding the treatment of its underage contestants to become one of the highest rated Saturday night shows throughout its run, edging out newcomer Pitch Battle every week.

Tune in on Sunday evening to find out which of the contestants will land £30,000 to be put towards their musical education and, as a rather nice touch, a family holiday to Disneyland.


The Voice Kids Semi-Final airs on ITV on Saturday 15th July at 7.30pm while The Voice Kids Live Final airs at 7.10pm on Sunday 16th July.
