La Voix is a francophone Canadian reality talent show as part of the international television series franchise The Voice, based on the original Dutch version of the program created by John de Mol. The series is part of The Voice franchise and is based on a similar competition format in The Netherlands entitled The Voice of Holland. The series is structured as three phases: blind auditions, battle rounds and live performance shows. In 2016, La Voix also launched a separate series for younger contestants called La Voix Junior.


Producers' auditions and blind auditions

La Voix Canada's first stage are the producer's auditions, which are not shown on television. The first televised stage are the blind auditions, where the contestants sing in front of the coaches. The coaches have their backs to the singer and if they like what they hear; they can press their button to turn around and recruit them to their team. If more than one coach turns the power shifts to the singer, who then decides which team they would like to be part of. Each coach must recruit 12 singers to their team in the blind auditions to progress onto the battle phase.

The Duels

The Duels oppose two participants from the same team. To prepare, participants are helped and advised not only by their coach, but also by mentors. After the duet performance, the coach determines the participant who will move on to the next stage. The other coaches will be able to steal an unsuccessful candidate. They can only use this privilege twice. At the end of the Duels, each team will have 8 participants.

The Chants de Bataille

Among the eight artists composing their teams, the coaches will choose five participants who will go directly to the Directs. The other three will have to go through the Chants de Bataille stage to access Directs. Only one will succeed.

The Directs

At the four Directs, from the quarterfinals to the Grand Final, the audience and the coaches determine who will continue the competition.


At this stage, there are only 4 participants left to become the big winner of the series. The public will have the choice, and it is he/she alone who will vote to determine La Voix.
