WHO IS VICTORIA ALSINA?
Aged just seven, Victoria is one of the youngest finalists the show has seen.
She's being mentored by judge Will.i.am and sung Mariah Carey's Hero to secure her spot in the final.
Will announced his decision by saying: “My gut is split into three equal parts. The person I'm taking through is Victoria.”
WHAT DOES THE WINNER GET?
The youngster who triumphs on the programme will be given a £30,000 bursary towards their musical education.
It's intended to support and encourage the winner's musical ambitions – laying the foundations for future singing success as an adult.
This will help them to progress their music career.
But the prize doesn't stop there.
On top of that, they'll win a dream family holiday to Orlando, Florida.
WHO IS FINALIST GEORGE ELLIOT?
Danny Jones from McFly selected George to be his finalist for The Voice Kids 2020.
10-year-old George had performed Queen's Radio Gaga for the semi-final, which earned him a standing ovation.
Danny said the choice was one of the “hardest decisions” he's ever made.
All child acts are thought to have a good chance of winning, but Dara's last performance stood out to all the judges.
Viewers were Tweeting their support of the youngster, and to top it off, judge Danny said he had the best performance of the night – even above his own acts.
Finalist George also won over the judges as he interacted with the audience and asked them to sing back to him – something even mentor Danny was shocked by.
Will.i.am said: “Out of all The Voice performances, never has a performer sung a song and then told the audience to sing.”
Pixie Lott was also impressed, saying: “You're a different level for a ten-year-old, I properly loved it.”
Victoria and Justine also wowed the judges as they took on power songs by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey.
