The Voice (Channel One)

The Voice (Russian: Голос) is a Russian singing competition television series broadcast on Channel One. Based on the original The Voice of Holland, it has aired six seasons and aims to find currently unsigned singing talent (solo or duets, professional and amateur) contested by aspiring singers, age 17 or over, drawn from public auditions. The winner is determined by television viewers voting by telephone, SMS text, and The Voice App. The winners of the seven seasons have been: Dina Garipova, Sergey Volchkov, Alexandra Vorobyova, Hieromonk Fotiy, Darya Antonyuk, Selim Alakhyarov, and Petr Zakharov.

The series employs a panel of four coaches who critique the artists' performances and guide their teams of selected artists through the remainder of the season. They also compete to ensure that their act wins the competition, thus making them the winning coach. The original panel featured Dima Bilan (seasons 1–3, 5–6), Pelageya (seasons 1–3, and 6), Alexander Gradsky (seasons 1–4, and 6), and Leonid Agutin (seasons 1–3, 5–6); the panel for the current seventh season features Basta (seasons 4 and 7), Ani Lorak (season 7), Sergey Shnurov (season 7), and Konstantin Meladze (season 7). Other coaches from previous seasons include Polina Gagarina (seasons 4–5) and Grigory Leps (seasons 4–5).

The Voice began airing on October 5, 2012, as an autumn-winter TV season programme. The show proved to be a hit for Channel One. The series premiered its seventh season on October 12, 2018.

Conception

An adaptation of the Dutch show The Voice of Holland, Channel One announced the show under the name Голос (The Voice).

In each season, the winner receives ₽1,000,000 (≈$16,000) and a record deal with Universal Music Group.

Selection process and format

Blind auditions

Each season begins with the "Blind Auditions," where coaches form their team of artists (12 artists in season 1 and season 7, 14 artists in seasons 2–6) whom they mentor through the remainder of the season. (There was a rule in seasons 3–5 that coach who complete his/her team firstly can add to his/her team still one artist). The coaches' chairs are faced towards the audience during artists' performances; those interested in an artist press their button, which turns their chair towards the artist and illuminates the bottom of the chair to read "Я выбираю тебя" ("I Want You"). At the conclusion of the performance, an artist either defaults to the only coach who turned around or selects his or her coach if more than one coach expresses interest.

Battles

In the "Battle Rounds," each coach pairs two of his or her team members to perform together, then chooses one to advance in the competition. In season 1, coaches were assisted by celebrity mentors. In the first season, coaches sit alongside their respective advisors in the battle stage. A new element was added in season two; coaches were given two "steals", allowing each coach to select two individuals who were eliminated during a battle round by another coach. However, in the seventh season (just like in the first season) each coach can't steal artists.

Knockouts

In the Knockout Rounds, a pair of artists within a team are selected to sing individual performances in succession. They are not told until a few minutes prior to their performances who their partner is. At the conclusion of the performances, coaches would decide which one of each pair gets to advance to the next round. Starting with season two each coach pairs three artists into one knockout with two contestants from the trio advance to the next round. However, in the seventh season only one contestant from the trio advance to the Top 12. But the coaches were given one "steal" (just like in the previous seasons' Battles).

Live shows

In the final live performance phase of the competition, artists perform in weekly shows, where public voting and coaches' decision s narrow to a final group of artists and eventually declares a winner. In season one the coaches have the power to save one artist that had not received the public's vote in the Quarterfinal. In later seasons artists were saved by Votes' summa (Public's vote + Coach's vote). In deciding who moves on to the final four phase, the television audience and the coaches have equal say. With one team member remaining for each coach, the contestants compete against each other in the finale, where the outcome is decided solely by public vote. One contestant from each team would advance to the final four.

Addition

Since season 7, alongside the determining of the winner, television viewers vote for the best season coach using The Voice App and HbbTV option in their TV sets.
