The Voice UK is the British version of The Voice of Holland, a television talent show, along the lines of The X Factor. This talent show was created by John de Mol and features four coaches looking for a talented new artist,[1] with the intent that a potential auditionee could become a global superstar. The show's concept is simple; the auditionee walks on to the stage with the judges' backs turned to them, rendering looks, personalities, stage presence or dance routines irrelevant, and starts singing.[2] If the judges like what they hear, they will turn around, indicating intent to coach them.[3] If more than one coach turns round, power falls into the hands of the singer.[3] Once all four teams are complete, the live shows begin and the singers sing songs chosen for them by the coaches.[3]

The Voice UK has been referred to as a "big, exciting and warm-hearted series" and a "new generation in its genre" by The Guardian.[4] It began its eleven-week run on 24 March 2012 on BBC One[5] and its second series began on 30 March 2013.[6] The judging panel was Danny O'Donoghue, Jessie J, Sir Tom Jones and will.i.am,[7] while Reggie Yates and Holly Willoughby presented;[8] however, after series 2, Jessie J, Danny O'Donoghue, Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates left[9][10] and were replaced by Kylie Minogue, Ricky Wilson, Emma Willis and Marvin Humes.[11] In 2015, Minogue left due to commitment with her world tour and was replaced by Rita Ora, who then left after 1 series to join X Factor. For Series 5 (2016) - the final series on BBC - Boy George and Paloma Faith joined the panel, replacing Ora and Sir Tom Jones. It is produced by Shed Media's Wall to Wall as well as Dutch production company Talpa Productions.[12]

The Voice UK's discography includes seven top 40, twelve top 75, seventeen top 100 and twenty-six top 200 hit singles on the UK Singles Chart and five top fifty albums on the UK Albums Chart, including one top 5 single and two top 10 albums, not including singles and albums released during artists' former careers.
