How The Voice auditions work
The producers’ auditions
The Voice’s first audition stage is the producers’ auditions, which are not shown on television. Talent scouts across the UK search for singers to attend The Voice’s producers’ auditions, however you are able to apply for The Voice auditions too. Solo artists and duos can participate, however you must be aged sixteen or over.
The blind auditions
If successful at the producers’ auditions you will go onto the blind Voice auditions. During The Voice’s blind auditions the celebrity coaches sit in their chairs facing away from the stage, so they can’t see the artist during the performance. If a coach is impressed by what they hear and wants you for their team, they hit their red button, at which point their chair rotates and they can finally see you.
However, if more than one coach turns their chairs, the contestant takes all of the power and can choose which coach they want to work with. If chosen by one of the coaches the contestant will then go on to The Voice’s Battles.
