There are four coaches, who are all famous in the music industry. During the blind auditions these coaches will turn around in their chairs when they hear a performer they want in their team. If there are more coaches who want a performer, he or she gets to choose who they want as their coach. During the battles there will be two or three contestants from the same team up against eachother, performing the same song together. The coach then has to choose one of them to get through to the live shows. Written by immevangorp

The Voice UK is better than the other ones.
31 December 2017 | by Imme-van-GorpSee all my reviews

I, personally, like the Voice UK a lot better than all the other Voices. I'm from The Netherlands, which is the country this talent show is originally from (although I just read a review that made it seem like this show was a lame version of the Voice USA, which I thought was very peculiar since it doesn't originate from the USA), but I prefer watching the Voice UK as well, because the coaches are so much more fun to watch than the coaches from other countries.

Will.I.Am has been a coach since the very first series and is, in my opinion, what makes the show this great. Sometimes he doesn't really say a lot, but when he does, he's almost always witty, entertaining and funny.

Sir Tom Jones, who has been a coach for multiple seasons, makes the show respectable with his flair and wisdom. I think we can all agree that when he was replaced by Boy George, it was a big mistake. Boy George just didn't have that same impact on both the contestants and the coaches as Sir Tom did. He wasn't as much respected and acknowledged. I must say I wasn't sad at all when it was announced that Sir Tom Jones would be back, now that iTV started airing the show instead of the BBC, who fired Sir Tom.

There is always one female coach though and that role seems to change a lot. We've had Jessie J, Rita Ora, Kylie Minogue, Paloma Faith and Jennifer Hudson. My favorite female coach was probably Jessie J or Kylie Minogue. The other ones just didn't quite live up to their standerds.

In the first two series we had Danny O'Donoghue, who I thought was very entertaining and I was rather sad when he left the show, but when we were introduced to Ricky Wilson in series three, I instantly got over the loss of Danny and fell in love with Ricky's way of coaching and judging, particularly the way he really cares about the contestant.

Long story short, I would definitely recommend watching this version of the Voice, even if you're not from the UK.

8/10. -Imme van Gorp
