The Voice battle round one: results

Ricky Wilson and Sir Tom Jones use up all of their steals whereas Rita Ora and will.i.am play the long game in the first batch of battles

The gloves came off in The Voice tonight as each coach pitted their singers against each other in the first of the battle rounds.

The singers had to perform the same song and hope their coach would choose to save them, and the coaches were competing too: there was lots of stealing going on.

Sir Tom Jones, Ricky Wilson, will.i.am and Rita Ora are allowed to steal twice during the battle rounds, nabbing singers another coach has chosen to let go. Their “steals” will make up the eight acts they’ll take through to the next stage: the knockouts.

Ricky and Tom went for it straight out the gate, using up both of their steals tonight. Rita and Will.i.am have kept their powder a little drier, with one steal still in the bag for next week.

Here’s a quick guide to the singers that have gone home, been stolen and made it through to the next round. To relive live tonight’s high drama and tears, check out our review here
