“The Voice of Afghanistan” is a reality TV singing competition based on the original format “The Voice of Holland” that will feature Afghanistan’s most famous music artists who will serve as coaches to train the countries next generation of talented singers.
The show will feature Afghanistan’s most famous artists who will serve as coaches to train the countries next generation of talented singers.
The show's innovative format features 4 stages of the competition:
1. The Blind Audition
2. The Battle Phase
• The Battle
• The Timeouts
• The Steals
3. The Knockouts
4. The Live Performance
1. The Blind Audition:
During the blind auditions, the decisions from the coaches are based solely on voice and not on looks.
The coaches hear the artists perform, but they don't get to see them - thanks to rotating chairs.
A coach impressed by an artist's voice pushes a button to select the singer for his/her team.
At this point, the coach's chair swivels so that he/she can face the artist selected. If multiple coaches push their buttons for a singer, the power then shifts to the artist to choose which coach he/she wants to work with.
If none of the coaches pushes the button, the contestant is eliminated from the competition.
2. The Battle Phase:
The Battle: Once the teams are set, the battle is on! Coaches will dedicate themselves to developing the artists on their team, giving advice, sharing the secrets of their success and getting help from their celebrity advisers.
During the battle rounds, the coaches will pit two team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience.
Final decision is made by the coach.
TIME OUTS: The battle phase now also features the rotating chairs; the coach’s advisor no longer sits next to him; he/she now sits behind the coach. If the coach finds it difficult to decide, he or she can once again press the well-known buzzer and the chair will turn round to face the advisor.
Advisor and coach will then discuss who should win the battle.
The Steals: After the battle, the coach must choose which of the two singers will advance to the next round of competition.
The losing artist is available to be stolen by another coach.
Each coach has two steals available during the battle rounds.
This new element stops very good candidates leaving the show at an early stage, which is generally what happened in the original version of the format.
3. The Knockouts:
At the end of the battles, only the strongest members of each coach's roster remain and proceed to the knockout rounds.
The artists will be paired again with a team member, but this time they find out only minutes before performing against whom they are competing.
The artists each select their own songs and perform individually while their competitor watches and waits. They are competing for their coach's confidence and decision to take them to the live shows.
Their coach will choose the winner and the artist not selected will be sent home.
4. The Live Performance:
In the live performance phase of the competition, the top artists from each team will compete against each other every week during a live broadcast.
The television audience will vote to save their favorite artists and the two singers with the lowest number of votes will be sent home each week.
In the end, one will be named "The Voice" and will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.
