Show info and idea
The Voice UK is a British talent competition television series airing on BBC One since March 24, 2012. The concept is based on the Dutch show The Voice of Holland, and was created by John de Mol. The show, which is a part of the larger The Voice franchise, is produced by Wall to Wall along with the Dutch Tulpa Productions. The Voice is in its fifth series that launched on January 9, 2016.
The format of The Voice is a rather complicated one and consists of five stages: auditions by producers, blind auditions, battle phase, knockouts and live shows. The artists come from public auditions, and begin contending for a cash prize of £100,000 and a Universal Republic recording contract.
Viewer reception and the move to ITV
The current fifth season of The Voice will be the last one airing on BBC One, the network announced in November 2015. As it turned out later that month, ITV had acquired the rights to the singing contest for three additional series, as well as possibly for two series of The Voice Kids. In fact, ITV originally competed with BBC for the right to broadcast the show, but in 2012 BBC won that bidding war. How will The Voice change with its move to ITV? Its current popularity, with approximately 7 million viewers tuning in to watch the competition, warrants an assumption that it will be a success regardless of where it goes. There has been no announcement from ITV as to The Voice`s release date, so please stay tuned for the news on the series` return.
