Emma Willis is currently hosting The Voice Kids, and revealed that the younger contestants cry less than adults auditioning on the main show! The presenter opened up about comforting the children on the show, telling the Mirror: "A few of them did cry but not as many as I thought, which I was really surprised about. In fact, we have more criers on the grown-up show. The kids took it better than the adults. In the later stages there were one or two who were really upset. You put an arm around them and reassure them and remind them they have so much time ahead of them. I treat them as I would my own kids."

Emma revealed that children cry less than adults in the competitions

She added to the Daily Mail: "On Voice Kids we were always so conscious to really take care of the kids and their families throughout the process. But to be honest the kids took it more in their stride… I guess because for most of the kids they have so long to develop so this isn't their last shot at a career like it is for some of the grown-ups. That takes the pressure off."

One of the show's judges, Pixie Lott, also opened up about working with kids in the talent competition. She told HELLO!: "I love working with kids… when they do get up [on stage] and are amazing and taking all the directions you give them, it does make you feel like a proud mama. It makes me so happy". She added that she'd be happy for her future children to go into the music industry, adding: "I think, it all depends on the kid, with The Voice Kids you can tell the passion just comes from them… so only if they really wanted to do it and they had a talent. Then if that's what they want to do, I'd 100% support them."
