More about The Voice (from Wikipedia)
The Voice is an American reality talent show that premiered on April 26, 2011, on the NBC television network. Based on the reality singing competition The Voice of Holland, the series was created by Dutchtelevision producer John de Mol and is executive produced by Mark Burnett. It is part of an international series. The Voice proved to be a hit for NBC. The second season premiered February 5, 2012, immediately following NBC's broadcast of Super Bowl XLVI, and as of September 2012, the network is airing the third season.
The series is part of The Voice franchise and is based on a similar competition format in the Netherlands entitled The Voice of Holland won by Ben Saunders. The first American series was hosted by Carson Daly, with Alison Haislip serving as the backstage and social networkingcorrespondent. The winner received $100,000 and a record deal with Universal Republic Records (seasons 1-2), Universal Music Group(season 3). Daly and the entire judging panel returned for season two; however, Christina Milian replaced Haislip as the social media correspondent.
The series consists of three phases: a blind audition, a battle phase, and live performance shows. Four judges/coaches, all noteworthy recording artists, choose teams of contestants through a blind audition process. Each judge has the length of the auditioner's performance (about ninety seconds) to decide if he or she wants that singer on his or her team. If two or more judges want the same singer (as happens frequently), the singer has the final choice of coach.
Each team of singers is mentored and developed by its respective coach. In the second stage, called the battle phase, coaches have two of their team members battle against each other directly by singing the same song together, with the coach choosing which team member to advance from each of individual "battles" into the first live round. Within that first live round, the surviving acts from each team again compete head-to-head, with public votes determining one of two acts from each team that will advance to the final six, while the coach chooses which of the remaining three acts comprises the other performer remaining on the team.
In the final phase, the remaining contestants compete against each other in live broadcasts for the public's vote. The coaches have the power to save one contestant that had not received the public's vote that week. As of season two, these contestants would give a last chance performance to win their coach's save. However, in deciding who moves on to the final four phase, the television audience and the coaches have equal say 50/50. With one team member remaining for each coach, the contestants compete against each other in the finale where the outcome is decided solely by public vote.
