Storyline and cast
The Voice is an American reality TV singing competition in which talented singers compete for a chance to win $100,000 and a record deal. An adaptation of the Dutch show “The Voice of Holland”, and a part of a hugely popular international franchise, the American program is produced by United Artists Media Group. The Voice has been airing on NBC since its initial debut on April 26, 2011. The current 11th season premiered on September 19, 2016.
Each season begins with blind auditions in which coaches form their teams of aspiring artists based solely on voice, not on looks. The coaches then mentor the contestants throughout the remainder of the show. Once the teams are formed, the battle is on and team members are pitted against each other in a true survival of the best voice. After each battle, coaches must choose who will advance to the next round of competition. The Voice permits one coach to save the losing artist and add them to their own team.
Top-notch ratings and possibility of renewal
Season 11 of NBC`s hit The Voice is the first to see two female judges on the panel – Miley Cyrus was promoted from an advisor position to a full-time coach in the current season, as NBC is hoping that she`ll bring in a younger following, which is the desired demographic. She has joined Alicia Keys and franchise veterans Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.
Voice has lost some ground ratings-wise, debuting this year with one million fewer viewers than in the preceding season, but still remains a top-rated program, and a hands-down leader on the night of its broadcast. Season 11 premiered with 12.1 million total viewers, an 18-49 demo rating of 2,7, and a share of 10. In 2016 the multiple award-winning series has added another Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Reality Competition program to its list of accolades. With reception like this there really isn`t much doubt as to the series` fate, so please stay with us and we will inform you when the network announces what everyone already knows – the renewal of The Voice for its twelfth triumphant season.
