The Voice of Holland, also known as TVOH, is a Dutch reality television competition, created by John de Mol, airing on RTL 4. Since its first season in 2010, it has been hosted by Martijn Krabbé and Wendy van Dijk.

One of the important premises of the show is the quality of the singing talent. Four coaches, themselves popular performing artists, train the talents in their group and occasionally perform with them. Talents are selected in blind auditions, where the coaches cannot see, but only hear the auditioner.

Format[edit]

Blind auditions[edit]

The first televised stage is the blind auditions, where auditionees sing in front of the official coaches. All coaches will be sitting on a chair that is turned back from the stage. The coaches will first judge and only judge by the power, clarity, type and uniqueness of the artists singing prowess. If they like what they hear and want to mentor the artist for the next stage, they will push a button by their chair that would turn the chair around to face the stage for the first time and also see the artists for the first time after they sing to avoid any undue bias according to characteristics and personality. If more than one coach turns around, the power to pick goes to the artist who will be given the chance to pick his/her coach of choice. If no coach turns his/her chair the auditioning artist's journey ends. At the end, each of the coaches will have a certain number of artists in his or her team who will be advancing to the next round.

The Battle rounds[edit]

The second stage, 'the Battle rounds', is where two artists are mentored and then developed by their respective coach. The coaches of the team will "dedicate themselves to developing their artists, giving them advice, and sharing the secrets of their success in the music industry". Every member of their team battle against another member from their team. They sing the same song simultaneously, while their coach decides who should continue in the competition. The coaches have to choose from the four individual "battles" to take artists to the live round.

The Knockouts[edit]

The third stage is the Knockouts. The format has varied from the early seasons where two artists each sang one song with one advancing to more recent years where all artists performed and the coach would select three to send to the Live Shows.

Live shows[edit]

The final stage, dubbed as the 'Live shows', is where the surviving combatants perform in front of the coaches, audience and broadcast live. Each coach will be having four artists in their team to begin with and the artists will go head-to-head in the competition to win the public votes. These will determine which artist advances to the final eight. The remaining three artists' future in the show will be determined by the coaches, choosing who will progress.

The final eight artists will compete in a live broadcast. However, the coaches will have a 50/50 say with the audience and the public in deciding which artists move on to the 'final four' phase. In the latter, each coach will have one member who will continue. The final (the winner round) will be decided upon by the public vote. Throughout the final the coaches will frequently perform with their artists. The winner will be crowned The Voice of Holland.

Coaches and hosts[edit]

The coaches were not yet known during the show's establishment announcement, but Gordon, Marco Borsato and John Ewbank were rumored to be participating. None of them eventually ended up in the original line-up. The coaches were announced on 17 June 2010: Roel van Velzen, Nick & Simon, Angela Groothuizen and Jeroen van der Boom.[1] In the first season, Roel van Velzen could not attend all live shows because of planned concerts. Martijn Krabbé hosted the show, with Wendy van Dijk joining him in the live shows and Winston Gerschtanowitz in charge of hosting the "Red Room".

Marco Borsato replaced Jeroen van der Boom in the second season, as Van der Boom left the show to become the head judge of The Winner Is[2], whereas Wendy van Dijk became the full-time host alongside Krabbé. In the third season, Groothuizen was replaced by Trijntje Oosterhuis, who had previously turned down the chance to join the show's first season.[3] On December 17, 2012, it was announced that Nick & Simon would not return as coaches in the fourth season.[4] On March 22, 2013, it was announced that Ilse DeLange would become a coach in the fourth season.[5] In January, Roel van Velzen announced he would not return as a coach for a fourth season and was replaced by Ali B.[6] The coaching panel remained unchanged for season 5 in 2014, but Winston Gerschtanowitz was replaced by Idols winner Jamai Loman.

On 15 January 2015, it was announced that Trijntje Oosterhuis and Ilse DeLange had left the show to focus on other projects, and would be replaced by Anouk and Miss Montreal frontwoman Sanne Hans.[7] Marco Borsato and Ali B returned as coaches for the sixth season. During the season 6's finale on January 29, 2016, Borsato announced he would not be returning for the seventh season, and his position would be filled by Guus Meeuwis.[8] Anouk originally signed to coach two seasons, but decided to skip the following season due to her pregnancy, therefore was replaced by Waylon in season 7.[9] Guus Meeuwis decided at the end of season 7 not to return for the eighth season. On June 9, 2017, it was announced that Anouk would return to replace Guus Meeuwis for season 8, along with returning coaches Ali B, Sanne Hans and Waylon.[10] During the season 8's finale on January 2, 2018, it was announced that for the ninth season Lil' Kleine would replace Sanne Hans, who had decided to leave for other commitments.[11]

In early 2019, Wendy van Dijk announced that she has moved from RTL 4 to SBS6 and therefore would not be able to return to the show as host.[12] On 22 February 2019, it was reported that the show will continue airing on RTL 4 for the next three years, and Chantal Janzen will replace van Dijk as host for the tenth season.[13] It has also been announced that Geraldine Kemper would replace Jamai Loman as backstage host.[14] Ali B, Waylon, Anouk and Lil' Kleine will all return for season 10 of The Voice of Holland. It was announced by the show's broadcaster, RTL 4, on their Facebook page.[15]
