Show Description

Hosted by Carson Daly, The Voice features aspiring singers being mentored by music's hottest artists in an innovative format with three stages of competition: the blind audition, the battle phase and, finally, the live performance shows. To start, the show's casting team works with the music industry and searches the country for the best singers to bring to the blind audition process. At the blind auditions, four famous musician coaches -- Grammy Award winners Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine and Grammy nominee and Country Music Award's Male Vocalist of the Year, Blake Shelton -- will each select singers to mentor into artists (in the event of a tie, the singer will decide which coach to work with). Once the star coaches have their teams, they will bring in their personal songwriters, producers and high-powered friends to help their teams evolve, dedicating themselves to developing their singers, giving them advice and sharing the secrets of their success. During the battle rounds, the coaches will pit two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song in front of a studio audience. After the vocal face-off, the coach must choose which of his/her singers will advance. Ultimately, the top artists from each team will compete against each other during a live broadcast, and America will decide which singer will be worthy of the grand prize: a recording contract and $100,000.
