Voice (Channel One)

Golos (Russian: Голос; English: The Voice) is a Russian reality television singing competition broadcast on Channel One. Based on the original The Voice of Holland, the concept of the series is 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 five seasons have been: Dina Garipova, Sergei Volchkov, Alexandra Vorobyova, Hieromonk Fotiy, and Darya Antonyuk.

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. Members of the coaching panel include Dima Bilan (season 1–3, 5), Pelageya (season 1–3), Alexander Gradsky (season 1–4), Leonid Agutin (season 1–3, 5), Basta (season 4), Polina Gagarina (season 4–5), Grigory Leps (season 4–5).

Golos began airing on 5 October 2012, as a autumn-winter TV season program. The show proved to be a hit for Channel One. The series premiered its fifth season on 2 September 2016.

Conception[edit]

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

In each season, the winner receives ₽1,000,000 and a record deal with Universal Music Group.

Selection process and format[edit]

Each season begins with the "Blind Auditions," where coaches form their team of artists (12 in season 1, 14 in seasons 2–5) whom they mentor through the remainder of the season. (There is a rule with season 3 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 "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 "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 are assisted by celebrity mentors. 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.

In the Knockout Rounds three 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 partners are. The artists get to choose their own songs in this round, although they continue to get help and advice from their respective coaches. At the conclusion of the performances, coaches would decide which two of three artists get to advance to the next round.

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 1 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.
