La Voz Colombia (Spanish for The Voice Colombia) is a reality television singing competition, originally from the Netherlands, that has become a worldwide phenomenon. Over 50 countries now have their own version of The Voice.


The Voice Colombia[edit]

La Voz Colombia is a singing competition looking to find the next great vocal talent in Colombia.

Participants attempt their shot at the competition in blind auditions, where the judges and future coaches, sit with their backs to the contestants. This format allows the participants to be judged solely on their singing ability and not on physical appearance. Judges can turn their chairs at the press of a button, indicating that they are interested in the performer. If more than one judge turns his/her chair, the contestant can choose a judge who will then become their coach as well. This format is based on the talent show The Voice. The winner of season 1 was Miranda Cardona and the winner of Season 2 was Camilo Martinez.

Due to a clause in the contract between Caracol and Talpa (producer that owns the format), the program is not broadcast internationally, with the exception of Spain and Ecuador, due to a special cause.

The first season of the show released a compilation CD, Lo Mejor de La Voz Colombia ("The Best of The Voice Colombia"), recorded by 12 of the contestants, and was put on sale in the country, where it was certified platinum.

Thanks to the excellent performance of The Voice Colombia in Ecuador, Ecuavisa aired the first season of' The Voice Colombia and was one of the only The Voice versions to be transmitted outside the originating country.[1]

The Voice Kids Colombia[edit]

The Voice Kids is a Colombian kids talent show, based on the Dutch competition The Voice Kids, broadcast by Caracol Television. Each season, 27 contestants, trained by one of the three judges, compete to win COL$300 million and a contract with Universal Music.


The first season premiered on Caracol TV on October 1, 2012. For the 2013 season, The Voice Colombia has a Second Screen TV Application, developed by Applicaster. The app offers an aggregated live feed of both broadcaster driven activities and social networks integration. The activities include a variety of gamification events, behind the scenes exclusive content, and various layers of information, to enhance primetime viewership. Show-related tweets and Facebook posts are integrated into the TV app feed during live primetime shows. Parlar TV, Caracol TV's app is available on the app store and on Google Play.

Coaches and hosts[edit]

In the first season Carlos Vives, Ricardo Montaner, Andrés Cepeda and Fanny Lu were the vocal coaches, while battle advisors were Maia, MR (Mau & Ricky Montaner), Amaury Gutiérrez, and Gilberto Santa Rosa.

For its second season, Carlos Vives announced that due to several tours and prior commitments he would not be in season 2, for which "The gentleman of salsa" Gilberto Santa Rosa became a member of the panel coaches.
