“The Voice” is a vocal competition series modeled after Holland’s
top-rated vocal talent discovery show, “The Voice of Holland.”
Hosted by Carson Daly, the show features four musician coaches:
Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton,
who will coach only the most talented vocalists.
The show’s innovative format features three stages of competition:
the first begins with the blind audition, then the competition enters
into a battle phase, and finally, the live performances. The show’s
casting team is working with the music industry and searching the
country for the best singers to bring to the blind audition process.
During the blind auditions, the decisions from the coaches are
based solely on voice and not on looks. The coaches hear the
contestants perform, but they don’t get to see them - thanks to
rotating chairs. If a coach is impressed by a contestant’s voice,
he/she pushes a button to select the contestant. At this point, the
coach’s chair will swivel to face the contestant selected. If more
than one coach selects the talent, the power shifts to the
contestant, who may choose which coach they want to work with
throughout the competition.
Once the teams are set, the battle is on. Coaches will dedicate
themselves to developing their singers, giving them advice, and
sharing the secrets of their success. During the battle rounds the
coaches will pit two of their own team members against each other
to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience. After
the vocal face off, the coach must choose which singers will
At the end of the battle episodes, only the strongest members of
each coach’s roster remain and proceed to the live stage shows.
In this final performance phase of the competition, the top
contestants from each team will compete against each other during
a live broadcast. The television audience will vote to save one
contestant on each team, leaving the coach to decide live who they
want to save and who will not move on. At last, each coach will
have his/her best contestant left standing to compete in the finale.
From these four, one will be named “The Voice” - and will receive
the grand prize of a recording contract and $100,000.
Several of the contestants on “The Voice” and various members
of the band have been seen wearing Red Chapter Clothing, and
