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 10th season premiered on February 29, 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 set, 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 (or the impossibility of cancelation?)
The tenth season welcomed the return of Christina Aguilera as a coach, alongside Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Pharrell Williams. The open call auditions for this season were held in Detroit, Michigan, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, NYC, New York and LA, California. The Voice is not losing any ground ratings-wise, and premiered this season as the top-rated show of the night, with 13,33 million total viewers, 18-49 demo rating of 3.5, and a share of 11. The most recent mid-March episode also led the night with a 2.7 demo rating and a share of 9, although it was second to NCIS in total viewership. With rating like these 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 eleventh triumphant season.
Updated March 28, 2016: Season 11 of NBC`s hit The Voice will be the first to see two female judges on the panel when the show returns in September 2016! Miley Cyrus was promoted from an advisor position to a full-time coach for the next season, as NBC is hoping that she`ll bring in a younger following, which is the desired demographic. She will be joining Alicia Keys and franchise veterans Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. The news were confirmed via the show`s official Twitter account. Pharrell Williams, Shakira, Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera are all on the back burner for season 11, but may return at any time afterwards. There`s every reason to believe that the next season will be just as compelling as the rest, so stay tuned for a premiere date.
