The much anticipated worldwide hit show has landed on Irish shores. Based on the international format that originated in Holland, The Voice of Ireland promises to be the most exciting show of 2012. Which is no surprise considering its number one show status in Holland and the US, 30 chart entries from The Voice of Holland (including two number ones), a number one single “Moves like Jagger” from The US Voice, 33 international versions of the show in production or currently on air and the chance to win a contract with recording contract with Universal Music. The first step to this coveted prize is the Blind Auditions.
During these auditions the Coaches are seated with their backs to the singers, and their decisions are based solely on voice. If a coach is impressed by the voice, they push the ‘I Want You’ button and their chair turns to face the singer. If more than one coach pushes the button, the power shifts to the singer and they get to decide which coach they want to work with. Once each coach has their team in place, the battle is on! Each team of singers will be mentored and developed by their coach. In the battles stage, each coach will have two members of their team battle against each other by singing the same song, with the coach deciding which team member will advance to the live shows.
