The Voice Kids UK aired this year's semi-final tonight (July 20) and we have all the details on who got through and which songs were belted out.

First up was coach will.i.am's spectacularly gifted Raphael – who has a famous relative, don't you know? – with his own spin on Bruno Mars' dancefloor favourite 'Uptown Funk'.

Could he make it to next week's grand final? He had two other competitors to contend with first.

Next was duo David and Ammani, who were tasked with ripping up the stage via a head-bopping Red Hot Chili Peppers track, 'Can't Stop'.

After their performance, Pixie Lott beamed: "You guys are just so lovable."

The third of Will's performers was rapper Lil' Shan Shan, debuting her own original track, which is a first for the competition's semi-final.

Storming the stage while also jumping down amongst the coaches, this sensational vocalist was given some great feedback. Jessie J simply commented: "I am blown away," and Pixie added: "Lil' Shan Shan, I'm a big fan fan".

And as it turned out, Will loved Lil' Shan Shan's artistry enough to send her through to next week's final!

This meant it was time for Jessie J's group to stand up and be counted, with Keira (singing Hercules soundtrack hit 'Zero to Hero'), Amaree ('What the World Needs Now is Love' by Jackie DeShannon) and Pheobie ('True Colours' by Cyndi Lauper) shaking off the nerves.

It was an amazing trio of performances – particularly Pheobie's commanding rendition – but eventually Jessie decided on Keira as her finalist.

After her performance, Keira's coach reflected: "I've worked with adult artists that wouldn't be able to do that."

McFly's Danny Jones gathered his singers for the next batch of performances, firstly tasking Conor with the catchy 'Hey, Soul Sister' by Train.

Will seemed seriously impressed, later responding: "To have the aura of 'I've played like a thousand Glastonburys' was pretty awesome!"

Up next was 11-year-old Jocelyn with Sigrid's joyous tune 'High Five', but unfortunately for her, young musician Sam soon stole the limelight through his Cat Stevens cover and made it through to the final.

Meanwhile, Jessie informed him: "You're very, very, very special."

Last but certainly not least, with one of this year's strongest trios, Pixie brought whistle-toned Liam to the stage, as well as Gracie-Jayne and Chloe.

Viewers were offered fabulous versions of Mariah Carey and Demi Lovato tracks, but it soon became clear that there was only winner here tonight.

With one of the mentors claiming: "That was the best performance of the semi-finals," Gracie-Jayne was crowned Pixie's favourite, sending her through to next week's showpiece.

So there you have it, one more week to go until we find out who this year's winner of The Voice Kids UK is.

The Voice Kids UK returns next Saturday (July 27) on ITV.
