The Voice Brasil is the franchise of Brasil from the most watched television reality show in the world known as The Voice. It was way back on September 23, 2012 when the very first season of The Voice Brasil was aired through the Rede Globo network. This show was actually created by Dutch television producers named John de Mol and Roel van Velzen. Moreover, it is under the direction of two high caliber directors named J. B. “Boninho” de Oliveira and Carlos Magalhães.
Just like the other franchises of The Voice in the world, The Voice Brasil also has the format from the audition up to the competition proper. The participants will firstly experience the Blind Audition. When they passed the blind audition, they will then proceed to the Battle Round. And when they successfully pass this particular round, they will then proceed to the Live Performance Shows, where they will be saved through the votes of the viewing public.
Any The Voice franchise in the world will start from the Blind Audition where the judges will be in about-face position of the auditionees. Meaning to say, the judges will just mainly judge the participants with their voice alone, because there is no way they will be able to see the face and physical appearance of the person who is singing behind them. When the judges like the auditionee’s performance, they will turn around and the auditionee will then choose his or her coach. Even so, if there is only one judge who turns around, then the auditionee will be automatically joined the judge or coach’s team.
After passing the Blind Audition, the auditionees will get to go through the Battle Round, in which they will be facing each other. But before they will be on a head to head singing battle, they will be coached by their chosen coach and practice singing the song that is assigned to them. It is like you will be fighting with the other member of the team where you are in. After the battle performance, the coach will then choose one who will proceed to the next round.
In this particular round, there will only be 9 participants who will be competing each other. Of course, they still have their chosen coach with them who will mentor them all throughout the singing competition. The entire live performance shows will last for 5 weeks until the last one standing is declared to be the winner. The basis of determining the winner of The Voice Brasil is the number of votes that the participant is getting from the television show viewers. The higher the votes, the higher the possibility that the participant will win.
The Voice Brasil has already produced 4 seasons and it is currently airing its 5th season.
