Tiny talents win over viewers on The Voice Kids
The popular singing contest has a junior version.
A line-up of pint-sized performers has won over viewers of The Voice Kids with their vocal talents.
The first episode of the junior version of the ITV talent contest aired tonight and won rave reviews from those tuning in.
Judged by Will.i.am, Pixie Lott and McFly’s Danny Jones, the opening show featured a 12-year-old girl influenced by James Brown and Janis Joplin, a rendition of a Disney classic from The Little Mermaid, and a tiny rapper.
I'm amazed at the talent & ability of these young "kids". Incredibly confident too.— Alan Bull (@Grisham42) June 10, 2017

Watching The voice kids & I'm crying because these kids are so amazing but I'm also crying because it's a realisation that I have no talent😂— Harry (@harryscott1) June 10, 2017
Teon, a 10-year-old rapper who uses the stage name Little T, was a hit with his version of Skepta’s Shutdown.

The ten year old called 'Little T' rapping to Shutdown by Skepta on The Voice Kids is the highlight of my week— amy (@Amy_wxo) June 10, 2017
But viewers were uncomfortable with the auditions that didn’t result in a judge turning their spinning chair to take the child into the next round.

The young contestants are competing to win a Disneyland trip and a £30,000 scholarship, but no recording contract is up for grabs.
