The Voice is a American reality singing competition show on NBC which mainly        focuses on an individual’s voice, and not on their looks.

Winners receive $100,000 and a record deal with Universal Music Group, and claimsthe name, “The Voice.”

The Voice first aired on April 2011, as a spring season TV program. The show later expanded into the fall cycle when season 3 premiered on September 2012.

The series has a panel of four coaches who criticizes the singer’s performances. Each coach leads their team of selected singers through the remainder of the season.

The coaches compete against each other, to ensure that their singer wins the competition, therefore making them the winning coach.

Each season begins with the “Blind Auditions,” where the coaches form their team of singers, whom they will coach throughout the rest of the  season.

At the end of the singer’s audition, an artist is either automatically selected to the only coach that turned for them, or selects their coach if more than one coach shows attention.

Once the coaches form their team of artists, they head into the “Battle Rounds,” where coaches pair two of their artist to perform together, then choose one to advance in the competition.

Coaches are assisted by celebrity mentors who may be different each season. The rules have change since the first season, however some have remained true to the first season.

After the battle rounds and the knockout rounds the remaining singers head into the “Live Performances,” where they perform weekly, and the public voting narrows down to the finalists and eventually a winner is declared.
