The series consists of three phases: a blind audition, a battle phase, and live performance shows. Four judges/coaches, all noteworthy recording artists, choose teams of contestants through a blind audition process.
First Phase - The Blind Auditions
Each judge has the length of the auditioner's performance (about one minute) to decide if he or she wants that singer on his or her team; if two or more judges want the same singer (as happens frequently), the singer has the final choice of coach. Each team of singers (12 per team) is mentored and developed by its respective coach.
Second Phase - The Battle Rounds
In the second stage, called The Battle Rounds, 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 individual "Battles" into the first live round.
Third Phase - The Rescue
In the second season, it was added a new stage in which, coaches can save a member of their team that has been eliminated in the Round of Battles, in this new stage, each coach will select two eliminated contestants, they are assigned a different song and fight. In the end only one of them wins and continue on Live Shows.
Fourth Phase - The Live Performance Shows
Within the first live show, the surviving acts from each team again compete head-to-head, with public votes determining one of five acts from each team that will advance to the Final Eight, while the coach chooses which of the remaining three acts comprises the other performer remaining on the team.
In the final phase, the remaining contestants compete against each other in live broadcasts for the public's vote. The television audience and the coaches have equal say 50/50 in deciding who moves on to the Final 4 phase. With one team member remaining for each coach, the (Final 4) contestants compete against each other in the finale with the outcome decided solely by public vote.
