The Voice of Ireland is the ultimate talent show, seeking only people with true vocal talent. This is the show that starts where other talent searches end! Looks, age and appearance don’t matter, as the blind auditions ensure that the voice alone secures a place in the next round.
The Voice of Ireland consists of three phases: a blind audition, a singing battle and the live performance shows.
Four coaches, all established successful singers, will compete with each other to choose teams of contestants through a blind audition process. During these auditions the mentors will be seated with their backs to the singers, and their decisions are based solely on voice. If a coach is impressed by the voice, they push the ‘I Want You’ button and their chair turns to face the singer. If more than one coach pushes the button, the power shifts to the singer and they get to decide which coach they want to work with.
Once each coach has their team in place, the battle is on! Each team of singers will be mentored and developed by their coach.
Hosted by Kathryn Thomas and Eoghan McDermott, The Voice of Ireland will be offering a recording contract with Universal Music to the winning vocalist.
