VIEWERS will finally be able to voice their opinions on The Voice for the first time tonight.

Seal's finalists from the battle rounds will take on Delta Goodrem's talented six pack in the first episode of the show's live finals.

The competition turns inwards as the singers on each team compete against each other to stay in the running for the top prize.

Husky-voiced blues singer Karise Eden, from Team Seal, and blind teen Rachael Leahcar, from Team Delta, are expected to receive plenty of public support.

Sportsbet has Leahcar as the safest bet at 3.75 and Eden is tied with Lakyn Heperi, from Joel Madden's team, at 4.5.

But 17-year-old Ben Bennett, from Team Delta, is tipped to be a dark horse after winning over the audience in his battle round.

Bennett's odds currently sit at 9.0 and he is likely to be supported by a group of loyal young fans.

The public vote, which will be revealed next week, will determine the top two singers from each team.

The coaches will then choose two more singers they want to continue working with, and the bottom two singers from each team will be eliminated.

Sportsbet currently has Team Seal as the favourite coach to win the series at 2.9 odds.

He is closely followed by Joel Madden on 3.0, Goodrem on 3.75 and Keith Urban is the longshot at 5.5.

Viewers can vote for their favourite singer an unlimited number of times via SMS and phone ($0.55 per call or text), or once every 24 hours for free on Facebook.

Downloading a singer's track on iTunes also counts as two votes.

To see a video of Team Delta's live show rehearsals go to The Voice website.

The Voice live show starts tonight at 7.30pm on Channel 9.
