Show favourites such as Jai Waetford, Cat Vass and Taylor Henderson made it through, while it was good to see Dami Im make the cut. Lucky for her the judges changed the rules from Over 25s to Over 24s last week or she would have been with the solo females and possibly lucked out.
It was a shame to see Vendulka miss out for the second year in a row, and teen act Straight Up was also cut.
Some judges such as Ronan Keating kept wondering if their acts were ready for the big time, but when the minimum age is already 14 how prepared are they expected to be? On The Voice Kids 14 will be the upper limit and they will be as young as 8 years old.
