Vocea României (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈvot͡ʃe̯a romɨˈni.ej]; English: The Voice of Romania) is a Romanian reality singing competition broadcast on PRO TV. Based on the original The Voice of Holland, the concept of the series is to find new singing talent contested by aspiring singers, age 16 or over, drawn from public auditions. The winner is determined by television viewers voting by telephone and he is entitled to a €100.000 prize and a record deal with Universal Records for winning the competition. There have been six winners of the show to date: Ștefan Stan, Julie Mayaya, Mihai Chițu, Tiberiu Albu, Cristina Bălan and Teodora Buciu

The Voice of Romania began airing on September 27, 2011, as a spring TV season program. The series employs a panel of four coaches who critique the artists' performances. Each coach guides their teams of selected artists through the remainder of the season. They also compete to ensure that their act wins the competition, thus making them the winning coach. The original coaching panel consisted of Smiley, Horia Brenciu, Loredana Groza and Marius Moga. In season four, Brenciu was replaced with Vama lead member Tudor Chirilă. In season seven, Moga was replaced with Vița de Vie lead member Adrian Despot.

Format[edit]

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.

The series consists of four phases:

  • Blind audition
  • Battle round
  • Knockout stage
  • Live performance shows

Blind audition[edit]

Four judges/coaches, all famous musicians, will choose teams of 12, 14 or 16 contestants each through a four-episode-long blind audition process. Each judge has the length of the auditionee's performance to decide if he or she wants that singer on his or her team; if two or more judges want the same singer then the singer gets to choose which coach they want to work with.

Battle round[edit]

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 six individual "battles". In the first three seasons, at the end of the battle phase, there is a sing-off between two contestants of each coach, singing their audition songs. The coach chooses which one of them will join the other artists into the first live round. Within that first live round, the surviving acts from each team again compete head-to-head, with a combination of public and jury vote deciding who advances onto the next round. A new element was added in season three; coaches were given two "steals", allowing each coach to select two individuals who were eliminated during a battle round by another coach.

Knockout stage[edit]

The third stage of the competition is the 'Knockout stage'. It was first introduced in the sixth series (2016). The four coaches will enter this stage with nine team members each; eight winners of the battle phase, and two stolen members. Artists perform a 'killer song' of their choosing and the coaches each pick three members of their team to go through to the live shows, creating a final 12 for the public vote.

Live performance shows[edit]

The final stage, 'Live shows', is where the artists perform in front of the coaches and an audience, broadcast live. Each coach will have 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. In season four, the proportion was changed to 40/60. Season five changed the system completely and introduced "crossed duels": each of the eight contestants battles one from another team. The winner qualifies for the final. This opens the possibility of coaches ending up with 0, 1 or 2 contestants in the final

The final (the winner round) will be decided upon by the public vote.
