TV show description:      
This singing competition TV show attracts vocalists from across the country to compete in multiple rounds of eliminations with the winner ultimately landing a recording contract and a $100,000 cash prize.

The show’s format features three stages of competition: the blind audition, a battle phase, and the live performance shows.

During the blind auditions, the decisions from the musician coaches are based solely on voice and not on looks. The coaches hear the artists perform, but they don’t get to see the artist — thanks to rotating chairs. If a coach is impressed by the artist’s voice, he/she pushes a button to select the artist for his/her team. At this point, the coach’s chair will swivel so that he/she can face the artist he/she has selected.

Once the teams are set, coaches 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, singing the same song together in front of a studio audience. After the vocal face-off, the coach must choose which of his/her singers will advance.

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 the final performance phase of the competition, the top artists from each team compete against each other during a live broadcast. The television audience votes to save their favorite talent, leaving the coach to decide (live) who they want to save and who will go home. By the end, each coach will have one vocal artist left, ready to compete against the other teams’ finalists to be named the winner.

    CANCEL ‘THE VOICE’! IT IS A RIP OFF OF ‘IDOL’ and ‘X-FACTOR’ (that killed X-F’S chances stateside) and it doesn’t make stars, it just pads the hosts and MARK BURNETT’S bankrolls. And they had a serial sex offender (CEEL-O) on in the first years and then quietly dumped him! ONLY SIMON COWELL and his team can pick stars, and the polished belters that audition for ‘the VOICE’ are NOT stars!

    This show needs to be cancelled ASAP! It is a horrible rip off of ‘THE X-FACTOR’, and thanks to it SIMON COWELL’S original idea of a team mentor and his/her finalists going head 2 head, as in ‘X-FACTOR UK’ was ruined and only lasted 3 years!
    Now with ‘AMERICAN IDOL’ running it’s course, the ‘VOICE’ needs to go away, especially when they greedily had 2 SEASONS a year and really wore out their welcome early! The VOICE is all about the judges and NEVER makes a STAR like IDOL has, and instead it brings you ALREADY polished singers screeching to a the backs of chairs the turn around, (so SAD when they don’t) and then it turns into a run of the mill competition that is HO HUM! KILL THE VOICE and bring back more SIMON COWELL SHOWS in the US, SIMON is the one who can spot STARS, while ‘holier than thou’ MARK ‘GREED’ BURNETT and his dumb wife just make themselves money!

    We love this show seeing singers get a chance to make it and I am sure that some that do not win on the show get seen and picked up by some record labels!!
