Promotion[edit]

On 21 December 2013, the first trailer for the series premiered following the final of Strictly Come Dancing at 21:50. The trailer features all four coaches dressed in different medical costumes. They overlook a hospital ward, as many babies cry behind them. Then, the sound of a beautiful voice is heard from the direction of the babies, and stops all the crying. The voice captures the attention of Minogue and Wilson, who both turn around to see who is singing. will.i.am and Jones then turn, as the voice is revealed to be one of the babies, prompting the tagline "A Star is Born". On 1 January 2014, a new edition of the trailer aired, where another baby sings, in a more R&B style, also impressing the coaches.

As part of BBC One's promotion of its 2014 schedule, The Voice UK aired the first clips of the Blind Auditions, featuring a male artist walking to the microphone, a mother being reunited with her daughter following her performance, Emma Willis with a family watching a performance, the coaches' opening performance, and Minogue opening the trailer saying "This waiting, it's killer. And the anticipation", and she also tells an artist (unknown to the viewer), that they have "done the thing which is the thing that we [coaches] are waiting for."

On 6 January 2014, the series had its press launch at Broadcasting House. All four coaches were present, as were the two new presenters.[13] The coaches spoke to members of the press, and in the week leading up to the premiere, the show was highly publicised by the British media, with coaches giving interviews in the Radio Times,[14] The Metro,[15] Digital Spy[16] and The Telegraph.[17] Later that day, will.i.am and Kylie Minogue appeared on the new-look One Show, where they talked about the show and last years finalist, Leah McFall.

Reception[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

Following lukewarm responses from the British media after the first two series of the show, the response to the third series premiere was largely positive. Ed Power from The Daily Telegraph gave the series premiere 3 stars,[28] praising Minogue for being "glamorous, agreeably giggly [and] a card-carrying national treasure". Power said that she "was a natural" and that she had "spontaneity to go with sass". He also complimented Wilson for being "chipper and unforced". Catriona Wightman from Digital Spy was very positive about the premiere,[29] claiming that despite "reservations about whether Kylie would really manage to break through the nice girl mode" she was "brilliantly watchable", and that "Kylie's definitely a hit". The second blind audition continued to receive positive reviews from critics, receiving 4 (out of 5) stars by Michael Hogan from The Daily Telegraph, who commented that the "two new coaches add verve to The Voice UK and the newly confident singing contest seems to have found its feet" and that the new series "is a leap forward and the franchise has finally hit its stride."[30] However, the Battle Rounds were criticised, with Gabriel Tate from The Daily Telegraph stating there were "few stand out moments" in the second battle round. He also said that "after such a promising start to the third series, it's a shame to see that The Voice falling foul once again of slack editing and familiarity of format." Keith Watson of The Metro gave the second battle round two stars, stating that the show was full of "overambitious [artists] being made promises of stardom that will never come true".[31] The final received more positive reviews from the press, with Ed Power from The Daily Telegraph giving it 4 out of 5 stars, stating that the "tension was terrible" and it was a "drama soaked final". He also answered whether or not the addition of Kylie Minogue on the show would be successful, by saying that "we needn't have fretted. Kylie, it was clear from the very first episode, was a natural in the coaches chair." He concluded that "series three was assuredly a triumph – after much smoke and noise, The Voice has at last achieved lift-off."[32]

Anna McLuckie's rendition of "Get Lucky" received much positive feedback particularly on YouTube, as the official BBC version of the audition received three million views only a month after it was released, and over ten million views up to now. Other users uploaded the video, each getting millions of views as well. This was particularly noted as none other from this series had achieved more than a million views yet, and had even surpassed videos from Series 1 and 2.[citation needed] When Anna was eliminated during the Knockout Rounds, her coach Will.i.am was subject to much criticism, particularly on Twitter and YouTube. Celebrities such as One Direction's Niall Horan even disagreed with his decision.[33][34]

During the live shows, the BBC released studio versions of the songs to iTunes. Christina Marie's rendition of Everlong reached the iTunes Top 40. This was particularly noted as the week prior to the live shows, she had been ill, and had rarely rehearsed it to preserve her voice.[citation needed]
