Based on the original The Voice of Holland and part of The Voice franchise, it aired for twenty-one seasons and aims to find unsigned singing talent contested by aspiring singers aged 13 and over selected through public auditions. Each season begins with “blind auditions” where coaches form their team of artists, whom they mentor until the end season. season.
During the performance of the artists, the coaching chairs are facing the audience; those who are interested in the artist press a button that turns their chair towards the artist and illuminates the bottom of the chair to read “I want you”. At the end of the performance, the artist either defaults to the only coach who turned, or chooses their coach if more than one coach shows interest. Season 14 introduced the “Block” feature, which allows one coach to block another coach from receiving a contestant.
In Battle Rounds, each coach brings two members of their team together to compete and then chooses one to advance in the competition. In each season, the coaches are assisted by celebrity consultants, who are different in each season. In the first season, trainers sit next to their advisors during the battle phase. However, as of Season 2, Advisors no longer join trainers during the combat phase. A new element was added in the third season; coaches were given two “steals”, allowing each coach to select two people who were eliminated during the battle round by another coach.
