The Voice Kids returns to ITV next year.
“I love kids, I love to sing and I love to share all I know about singing and performing. The idea of combining those three things again on The Voice Kids is a dream come true. I am grateful to have been asked back. I am so excited to share my experience with the young singers on the show, who are just starting to discover themselves as singers. I will be protective of their experience emotionally, as well as vocally. It’s a huge moment in their lives and I am happy I get to be someone to help and hold their hand. It’s a fun and awesome panel to be joining. I love Pixie and Danny and I can’t wait to be sitting alongside my friend Will. Let’s go!!” – Jessie J
Jessie J is returning to The Voice format however this time its the ‘kids’ version of the show, joining Will.i.am, Danny Jones and Pixie Lott in the big red chairs.
Production is underway on a third series, for transmission on ITV next year, and talented youngsters will now have four coaches to try and impress as they sing for the star panel. Also, for the first time, the contest is accepting duos.
Each coach will have nine spots to fill on their teams, for either solo singers or double acts who are all aged 7-14.

Fresh from completing a tour of the US, China and Europe, the multi-platinum selling star will, ITV say, be on look out for young stand out singers to be a part of Team Jessie.
“I absolutely love Jessie and I’m thrilled to have a girl joining me with the boys! We’ve performed at some of the same gigs in the past and I’ve always admired her voice. I’m going to be doing all I can to keep my unbeaten record next year. Two series and two winners for me so far and I want the winner again so bring it on, kids!” – Pixie Lott
