The Voice Senior (Channel One)

The Voice Senior (Russian: Голос. 60+) is a Russian singing competition television series broadcast on Channel One. Based on the original The Voice Senior, it has aired one season and aims to find currently unsigned singing talent (solo or duets, professional and amateur) contested by aspiring singers, age 60 or over, drawn from public auditions. The winner will be determined by television viewers voting by telephone, SMS text, and The Voice App.

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 Leonid Agutin, Pelageya, Lev Leshchenko, and Valery Meladze.

The winner of the first season is Lidia Muzaleva.

The Voice Senior began airing on September 14, 2018, as an autumn TV season programme. On April 16, 2018, Channel One renewed the series through its first season. The series premiered on September 14, 2018.[1]


An adaptation of the Dutch show The Voice Senior, Channel One announced the show under the name Голос. 60+ (The Voice. 60+).

In each season, the winner receives ₽1,000,000.

Selection process and format

Blind auditions

Each season begins with the "Blind auditions," where coaches form their team of artists (4 artists with season 1) whom they mentor through the remainder of the season. 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.


In the "Knockout Rounds," each coach pairs two of his or her team members to perform solo, then chooses one to advance in the competition. Two artists from each team would advance to the Final.


In the final live performance phase of the competition, artists perform in live show, where public voting narrows to a final group of four artists and eventually declares a winner.


In each season alongside with the determing of the winner, television viewers vote for the best season coach using The Voice App and HbbTV option in their TV sets.
