The Voice

“The Voice” is a singing competition series that premiered on NBC in April 2011. The reality show features aspiring singers from across the country competing for the chance to win a recording contract. It’s an adaptation of the Dutch show “The Voice of Holland.”

Instead of judges, the show employs a panel of four celebrity coaches who select contestants to participate on their team for the season. The coaches then guide their acts to win the competition. The original coaches consisted of Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green. Aguilera and Green were replaced by Shakira and Usher in Season 4, before both returned for 5. Shakira and Usher then returned for Season 6, but left before Season 7. Pharrell Williams replaced Green in Season 7, while Gwen Stefani replaced Aguilera that same season due to her pregnancy. Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys joined the show for Season 11, replacing Aguilera. Stefani then returned for Season 12, alongside Keys, Levine and Shelton. It was later announced that Cyrus will be back for Season 13, and she’ll be joined by new coach Jennifer Hudson. The show was recently renewed for a fourteenth season, during which Kelly Clarkson will join the panel. Carson Daly has hosted the series since its debut.

The show also features a number of famous guest advisors who help one of the coaches mentor their team. Past celebrity participants have included Celine Dion, Cher, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Garth Brooks, Diddy, Selena Gomez, and many more.

The contestant selection process begins with “Blind Auditions,” during which the coaches will listen to an artist sing while their chair is facing the audience. If the coach is interested in having the contestant join their team, they push a button, which turns their chair toward the singer. In the “Battle Rounds” and “Knockout Rounds,” each coach pairs a member of his or her team to perform together, then chooses one of them to advance to the next stage. Viewers at home are then invited to vote each week on the top 12 contestants who make the finals until one winner is chosen.

The winners of the eleven seasons so far are Javier Colon (Season 1), Jermaine Paul (Season 2), Cassadee Pope (Season 3), Danielle Bradbery (Season 4), Tessanne Chin (Season 5), Josh Kaufman (Season 6), Craig Wayne Boyd (Season 7), Sawyer Fredericks (Season 8), Jordan Smith (Season 9), Alisan Porter (Season 10) and Sundance Head (Season 11).

The show has spawned two live tours, which featured two finalists from each team performing at venues across the country. A video game based on the series, titled “The Voice: I Want You,” was released in 2014 and allows players to perform songs from the show into a microphone. A British version of the show, dubbed “The Voice UK,” began airing on the BBC in March 2012.
