About The Voice
The Voice is back in 2013 for a second season of the show that took Australia by storm. With a few new faces and a few minor tweaks, it's shaping up to be bigger and better than ever.
This year, Seal, Joel Madden, Delta Goodrem and newcomer to the The Voice, Ricky Martin, are competing as coaches - each one hoping to discover and nurture Australia's next great voice.
During the blind auditions, each coach must select 14 artists for their team. With their backs to the stage, the coaches judge each artist based only on what they hear. If a coach is impressed, they push a button which turns their chair to face the artist and signals that they want them on their team. If more than one coach selects the artist, the power shifts to the artist who may choose which coach they want to work with throughout the show.
Once the teams are set, the battle is on. Coaches will dedicate themselves to developing their singers, giving them advice, and sharing the highs and lows of their careers. During the battle rounds, the coaches must pit two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience.
After the vocal face-off, the coach must choose which of his/her singers will advance. In a new twist each coach has the opportunity to save a member of another team who did not make it through. Only one artist may be saved from each team across the battle shows.
Each coach now has formed teams of eight, it's time for the showdowns where they must now each reduce their teams to four. Across two episodes all artists will perform and this time the audience will vote to help the coach decide who he or she will take into the live finals.
In this final performance phase of the competition, the top four artists from each team will compete against each other during a live broadcast. Each week, the combination of viewer and coach vote will determine who stays and who goes, until there is only one artist on each of the coaches' teams.
It is then that the coaches go head to head, to compete against the other teams' finalists to be named The Voice of Australia - the winner will receive the grand prize of a recording contract with Universal Music Australia, $100,000 and a Ford Focus Kuga
