Nine’s new Reality series The Voice will premiere Sunday, April 15, at 6.30pm.
The local series of the high-profile talent quest sees judges Keith Urban, Seal, Delta Goodrem and Joel Madden, and host Darren McMullen.
April 15 is shaping up as a big night of TV. Nine premieres the series on the same night as the Logies, and potentially squares off against the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars. TEN may also be launching MasterChef -and is yet to schedule a season finale for The Biggest Loser.
The Voice is the quest to discover Australia’s best new voices, featuring three phases of competition: The Blind Auditions, The Battle Rounds, and the Live performance shows which will feature Australia’s very best undiscovered artists judged purely on their vocal ability.
The coaching panel is made up of four great musicians – Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden, international country music star Keith Urban, Grammy Award-winning soul singer Seal and Australia’s highest selling female artist of the decade, Delta Goodrem. These superstar coaches are four of the most influential names in music and they’re on a mission to discover and develop Australia’s next great voice. Host Darren McMullen has also had success in his own right with UK series The Magicians and Minute To Win IT, and the US series Love In The Wild.
The Voice will commence with The Blind Auditions. If a coach is impressed by a performer’s voice, they push a button to select the artist for their team of competitors. At this point, the coach’s chair will swivel so they can face the artist they have selected. If more than one coach selects the same artist, the power shifts to the artist who may choose which coach they want to work with throughout the competition. An artist is eliminated when they have not been chosen by one of our coaches.
Thousands of talented, undiscovered singers from around Australia submitted their auditions online in a bid to join a superstar team and ultimately be crowned The Voice.
