Chronology
  2012

The first season of the The Voice, the Australian reality talent show, premiered on 15 April 2012 and concluded on 18 June 2012, with Karise Eden being crowned as the winner.[1] This was the first and only season to have Keith Urban as a coach.

Overview[edit]

Format[edit]

The season is part of the The Voice franchise and is based on a similar competition format in The Netherlands entitled The Voice of Holland. The winner receives a recording contract with Universal Music.[2]

The season consists of three phases: a blind audition, a battle phase, and live performance shows.[3] Four coaches, all noteworthy recording artists, choose teams of artists through a blind audition process. Each judge has the length of the artist's performance (about one minute) to decide if he or she wants that artist on his or her team; if two or more coaches want the same artist (as happens frequently), the artist has the final choice of coach.

Each team of artists is mentored and developed by its respective coach. In the second stage, called the battle phase, coaches have two of their team members battle against each other directly by singing the same song together, with the coach choosing which team member to advance from each of six individual "battles" into the first live round. Within that first live round, the surviving four artists from each team again compete head-to-head, with public votes determining one of two artists from each team that will advance to the final eight, while the coach chooses which of the remaining three artists is saved.

In the final phase, the remaining artists (Final 8) compete against each other in live broadcasts. The television audience and the coaches have equal say 50/50 in deciding who moves on to the final 4 phase. With one artists remaining for each coach, the (final 4) artists compete against each other in the finale with the outcome decided solely by public vote.

Coaches[edit]

The Voice Australia coaches: Seal, Keith Urban, Delta Goodrem, and Joel Madden.

On 29 May 2011, it was reported in The Daily Telegraph that the Nine Network would broadcast The Voice in late 2011.[4] However, two months later, they reported that the show will now air in early 2012, and that the Nine Network are in talks with signing at least one international artist (especially an American) to lead its panel of coaches on the show, which were rumoured to be Christina Aguilera, George Michael, Usher, Pink and Gwen Stefani.[2] In September 2011, the Herald Sun reported that the Nine Network are planning to sign Australia's Got Talent judge Dannii Minogue as one of the coaches.[5] Anthony Callea, Vanessa Amorosi and former Pussycat Dolls member Ashley Roberts all publicly expressed interest in coaching roles,[6][7] however Delta Goodrem, Keith Urban, Seal and Joel Madden were ultimately confirmed as the four coaches for the first series.[8]

Additionally, Ricki-Lee Coulter (with Seal), Darren Hayes (Goodrem), Megan Washington (Urban) and Benji Madden (with brother Joel) will pair up with the coaches as mentors for their contestants.[9][10]

Hosts[edit]

Darren McMullen was announced as the host of the program in January 2012.[11][12]

Faustina Agolley was announced as the shows social media correspondent during the live shows in May 2012.[13]

Production[edit]

Filming for the blind auditions stage of the competition began on 19 February 2012 at Fox Studios in Sydney,[14][15] with 121 artists featured in this phase of the selection process.[16] The first day of filming resulted in hundreds of audience members being turned away from the studio due to overbooking of the event by an external booking agent.[15]

Filming for the battle rounds started in late March.[17]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Contestant Fatai Veamatahau's stage name was changed to 'Fatai V' from the Live Shows onwards.[21]
  2. ^ Contestant Carmen Smith was disqualified from the competition after appearing in a music video with singer Guy Sebastian for his song, "Gold". The Nine Network deemed the appearance as an "unfair advantage" over other contestants and it made a decision with the producers of the show to immediately disqualify her from the competition. This is the first disqualification of a contestant in the history of the show's format.[31]
