What parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Voice Kids is a spin-off of the singing competition The Voice. It features contestants between the ages of 7 and 14 vying for a chance to win money and publicity. There's nothing to worry about here, but contestants often sing popular (but age-appropriate) songs, and albums featuring their renditions are available for purchase.

What's the story?

This UK version of THE VOICE KIDS is a spin-off of the singing competition The Voice. Talented children between the ages of 7 and 14 perform blind auditions in front of three judges, will.i.am, Danny Jones, and Pixie Lott. If a judge hits the buzzer and turns around, the young singer has the opportunity to join her/his team and move on in the competition. If more than one judge turns around, the contestant gets to choose the team they want to be on. After the selection process, the singers move on to a series of rounds where they compete against each other. The winner is awarded cash and a major prize.  

Is it any good?

This British version of the internationally successful franchise offers the same format and upbeat vibe as the original series. Talented kids croon, anxious family members watch from the sidelines, and judges showcase their unique personalities to add some humor to the show. Meanwhile, host Emma Willis keeps the whole thing moving along. 

It's not particularly original, but it's the kindness of the judges, who celebrate all the young singers regardless of how successful they are throughout the competition, that make it a positive viewing experience. Grown-up fans of the original series may find it worth the watch, but The Voice Kids is an upbeat alternative for kids to enjoy. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Is there anything different between The Voice and The Voice Kids outside of the age of the contestants?
