The Voice of Germany is a German reality talent show created by John de Mol, based on the concept The Voice of Holland and its international series. It began airing on ProSieben and Sat.1 on November 24, 2011.
There are five different stages to the show: producers' auditions, blind auditions, battle rounds, sign offs, and live shows. There have been ten winners to date: Ivy Quainoo, Nick Howard, Andreas Kümmert, Charley Ann Schmutzler, Jamie-Lee Kriewitz, Tay Schmedtmann, Natia Todua, Samuel Rösch, Claudia Emmanuela Santoso, and the latest Paula Dalla Corte.
The show was originally presented by Stefan Gödde. Since 2012, Thore Schölermann has presented the show. From 2015, Schölermann together with Lena Gercke hosted the show. In 2020, Annemarie Carpendale replaced Gercke as the new host, for the first stages. The coaches for the tenth season were Mark Forster, Nico Santos, Yvonne Catterfeld & Stefanie Kloss and Samu Haber & Rea Garvey. Other coaches from previous seasons include Nena, The BossHoss, Xavier Naidoo, Max Herre, Michi Beck & Smudo, Andreas Bourani, Michael Patrick Kelly, Alice Merton and Sido. In the ninth season, Nico Santos was featured as an off-screen fifth coach for Comeback Stage contestants. Michael Schulte took over as the Comeback Stage coach for the tenth season.
The eleventh season has been announced and will begin airing on October 2021.
On April 5, 2013, the kids version of the show premiered on Sat.1 and has since continued for eight seasons. In 2020, The Voice Kids was renewed for a ninth season, which will begin airing on 2021. On December 23, 2018, a seniors version of the show premiered on Sat.1. Two seasons aired before the show was canceled.
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. 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 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 four individual "battles" into the first live round. Within that first live round, the surviving four acts from each team again compete head-to-head, with public votes determining one of two 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 (Final 32) 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 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.
In Season 2, the battle format was extended into the live shows. The eight contestants in one team competed in battles until one finalist is left. The winner of these battle was selected by a 50%-mixture of a coach and televoting.
In Season 3, the live show battle format was abolished after it was criticized that popular contestants had to compete against each other. The number of live shows was reduced from six to four. The knockout round where contestants who succeeded from battle rounds compete for live shows was introduced in this season. It was first seen in the third season of The Voice US. The Cross-battle was also introduced in season 3 and was extended to season 4. In season 5, four contestants received the highest vote from the public advanced to the Live Finals regardless of what team they are from. But from the sixth season onwards, only one contestant from each team who received the highest vote out of their teams' top 3 was sent to the finals.
From season nine, the show added a brand new phase of competition called The Voice: Comeback Stage by SEAT that was exclusive to thevoiceofgermany.de. It was shown for the first time in the fifteenth season of the American version. After failing to turn a chair in the blind auditions or eliminated from battles and sing offs, artists had the chance to be selected by fifth online-coach to become a member of his person team. The two winners will compete in the live shows against the talents of the main coaches live on TV and so they can The Voice of Germany win.
In April 2011, ProSieben announced its intention to bring an adaptation of The Voice of Holland to Germany. In July 2011, ProSieben began announcements of the coaches/judges for the series. The first season aired in 2011-12 network television schedule. After a successful Season 1, Prosieben and Sat.1 decided to run another season in 2012. After the successful ratings in the blind auditions in Season 2, Prosieben and Sat.1 announced a third season in 2013. In December 2013, it was announced a fourth season, which began airing in October 2014. In June 2015, Prosieben and Sat.1 announced the fifth season for the 2015-16 network television schedule.
In the final of the fifth season, it was announced the sixth season for 2017. During the seventh season, it was announced that there would be an eighth season in 2018. In the final of season 8, it was announced by the presenter the ninth season. On November 3, 2019, it was announced the tenth season or the anniversary season which will premiere on 2020. On June 16, 2020, Sat.1 announced that the anniversary series of the casting show The Voice of Germany will have more episodes than before.
