The Voice Australia
ITV Studios' The Voice Australia is Australia’s most popular singing competition.
Originating in The Netherlands in 2010, this is now one of the world’s most successful formats, with more than 500 million viewers in over 70 countries.
It’s been described as the purest vocal talent competition ever, with the signature 'Blind Auditions' introducing the world to the drama of the rotating chair. It’s not how you look, it’s how you sound.
The first seven seasons of The Voice Australia have featured a who’s who of superstardom among the Coaches including; Delta Goodrem, Keith Urban, Seal, The Madden Brothers, Ricky Martin, will.i.am, Kylie Minogue, Jessie J, Ronan Keating and Joe Jonas who all put their ears and their passion on the line.
The Voice Australia is back for an enormous eighth series as superstar Coaches Kelly Rowland, Boy George and Delta Goodrem return to the famous red chairs, and are joined by new force on the coaching panel, Guy Sebastian and Sonia Kruger returning as host.
This season of The Voice will present artists with voices that will give you goosebumps, in the most intense blind auditions ever. In a Voice world first, the blind auditions welcome the All Stars, championed fan favourites who missed out on a chance to win in previous seasons.
Which artists will make the Coaches turn their chairs? And can 2018 winning Coach Kelly Rowland defend her title?
Season eight follows a highly successful seventh season, which saw millions tuning in to hear the amazingly unique sounds of Sam Perry as he took out the title of The Voice Australia, along with $100,000 in prizemoney and a recording contract.
THE VOICE FORMAT IN 2019
Blind Auditions: Here we meet the hopefuls who will audition for our Coaches for the chance to turn a chair and securing a place on one of the four teams.
Knockouts: The top 48 artists go head-to-head in groups of three as they perform a song their coach has chosen within a theme. There are two exciting “saves” for each coach to add artists to their team.
Battles: In this stage of the competition artists perform in pairs. One artist wins the battle and each Coach gets a wildcard to take through from the unsuccessful artists on their team, resulting in four artists per team moving into the finals.
Finals: The top 16 artists battle it out for a place in the Grand Final where the Top 4 will compete to win The Voice Australia 2019.
The winner of The Voice will receive the grand prize of a recording contracting with EMI and $100,000 in prizemoney.
