While I do love a bit of Junior Eurovision, realistically I didn't think I'd be able to get on board with this especially as I didn't bother with the adult version for the first time earlier this year. However I gave it a go and was really pleasantly surprised! Danny, Pixie and Will are an absolutely fantastic judging line-up, perfect perfect choices. I think one of my criticisms of the adult version is that the auditions seem to drag as coaches endlessly pitch for each singer. The fact that there is only three of them immediately reduced this, and the whole show felt well paced.

I have always been intrigued about a UK version of The Voice Kids, I know Lena (Eurovision 2010) has coached on Germany's version and quite a few Junior Eurovision contestants in recent years have come from the brand particularly in Australia. Looking forward to seeing Zena Donnelly who represented Ireland in Junior Eurovision last year, as she is due in a future episode!

Oh and this rated VERY well for an ITV summer weekend primetime show, around 4.2 million viewers. According to Digital Spy, if they can keep this up it will be ITV's biggest summer hit in quite a while which will be quite the surprise to many I imagine. I struggle to even remember what ITV have been showing in previous summers but I remember Primeval a few years ago dropped down to 1-2 million by the end of its run I think!

I enjoyed it more than I expected to as well and I'd probably say the pace had a lot to do with it. That girl singing Tina Turner was a bit of a nightmare, but there were some definite talents from it and it felt much more like easy watching than the main version. Probably because it doesn't have the whole "they need a hit" hanging over it, it's just kind of feel good, kids doing well for themselves TV.

I hope there isn't too much pressure and hype for the kids. Just saying.

Why did that irritating twat will.i.am say that As was a song by George Michael and Mary J Blige? Is MJB really better known than Stevie Wonder?

Really great winner in Jess, although I was expecting a younger-looking act to win (either Erin or most likely Jake) as they tend to do in the world of Junior Eurovision. Perhaps mostly adults voted as Jess was definitely the most mature of them all (alongside Gina), but The Voice Kids have got themselves a great first winner!

Jess was my 2nd favourite behind Erin, Erin was very much a young Diana Vickers! heart.gif
