The Voice is an American reality talent show. The series is part of the The Voice franchise and is based on a similar competition format in the Netherlands, The Voice of Holland. The show is hosted by Carson Daly, with Alison Haislip serving as the backstage and social networking correspondent. The winner receives $100,000 and a record deal with Universal Republic Records. Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Maroon 5 lead vocalist Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are the coaches. Each team of singers are mentored and developed by their coach. In the second stage, coaches have two of their team members battle against each other by singing the same song, with the coach choosing which team member to advance. In the final phase, the remaining contestants compete against each other in live broadcasts. The television audience helps to decide who advances. When one remains for each coach, the four contestants compete against each other in the finale.

The American series premiered on April 26, 2011 on the NBC television network.[1] The winner of the first season was Javier Colon, mentored by coach Adam Levine, the finale airing on June 29, 2011. It immediately proved to be a hit for NBC and the network renewed the show for a second season.[2][3]

Overview[edit]

The Coaches of The Voice (U.S.)

Christina Aguilera
Cee Lo Green
Adam Levine
Blake Shelton

The series consists of three phases: a blind audition, a battle phase and live performance shows. Four coaches, all famous musicians, choose teams of contestants through a blind audition process. Each coach has the length of the auditioner's performance (about one minute) to decide if he or she wants that singer on his or her team; if two or more coaches want the same singer (as happened with all but one singer in the premiere episode), then the singer gets to choose their coach. In the final 32 (live shows), Aguilera, Green, Levine and Shelton were joined by Sia Furler, Monica, music producer Adam Blackstone and Reba McEntire.[4]

Auditions[edit]

Contestant auditions were held in eight cities across the United States between mid-January and mid-February 2011: Chicago, New York, Miami, Nashville, Minneapolis, Austin, Los Angeles, and Seattle.[5] Contestants were also allowed to submit an online applications, which ended on March 1, 2011.[6][7] For the online auditions, contestants were required to sing one of ten preselected songs.[7]

Contestants on The Voice as revealed by airing of promotional advertisements or shows were Javier Colon,[8] Frenchie Davis,[9] Nakia,[10] Lukas Rossi,[11] Cherie Oakley, and Dia Frampton.[8]

Coaches, host, and social media correspondent[edit]

In late February 2011, NBC began announcements of the coaches for the series. First to sign on were Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine (frontman for Maroon 5).[12] Christina Aguilera came on board in early March 2011.[13] Blake Shelton was added as the final coach on March 7, 2011.[14]

Carson Daly was announced as the show's first host.[15] Alison Haislip was announced as the show's "backstage online and social media correspondent" during the live shows.[16]

The Battle rounds[edit]

After the Blind Auditions, each coach had eight contestants for the Battle rounds that aired from May 10 to May 31, 2011. Coaches begin narrowing down the playing field by training the contestants with the help of "trusted advisors". Each episode featured four battles consisting of pairings from within each team, and each battle concluding with the respective coach eliminating one of the two contestants; the four winners for each coach advanced to the live shows.

The trusted advisors for these episodes are: Adam Blackstone working with Adam Levine; Reba McEntire working with Blake Shelton; Monica working with Cee Lo Green; and Sia Furler working with Christina Aguilera

The Voice Live on Tour[edit]

In the final episode, Daly announced a summer concert tour. This tour had six stops across the United States, including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, Boston, Wallingford and New York. The tour featured the top two finalists from each team, including Javier Colon, Dia Frampton, Vicci Martinez, Beverly McClellan, Xenia, Frenchie Davis, Nakia, and Casey Weston.[25] Out of the six dates, the New York show was a sell-out.[26] However, as overall ticket sales were lackluster, the tour was cancelled in subsequent seasons.[27]

Contestant appearances on earlier talent shows[edit]

Reception and TV ratings[edit]

The premiere episode, in what was seen as a relative surprise, was the most watched telecast on the night it aired, garnering more viewers than high-profile competitors Dancing with the Stars on ABC (in persons 18 to 49; DWTS had more overall viewers) and Glee on Fox. The series debut garnered 11.775 million viewers from 9 to 11 p.m. It peaked at 10:45 p.m. with 13.398 million viewers (live+SD).[28]

Rolling Stone's Mallika Rao said of the show's premiere episode, "Could this concept be the best Dutch import since tulips and Eddie Van Halen?"[29] Despite a high viewership in its debut, the show has received mixed reviews on Metacritic, which holds at a 58.[30]
