Plot Synopsis

With the help of musical coaches, singers try to survive three elimination stages -- blind audition, battle phase, and live performances -- as they vie for the grand prize of a recording contract with Universal Republic and $100,000. During the blind audition, the coaches hear the singers perform but they are unable to see them. If impressed by the contestant's voice, that coach pushes a button to select the singer for his/her team. If more than one coach selects a competitor, that contestant gets to choose which coach to work with. During the battle phase, coaches develop their team of eight singers and then pit two of them against each other in front of a studio audience in a vocal face-off, where both competitors sing the same song and one is eliminated. When each coach is left with only four potential singing stars, the live performances begin, during which the TV audience votes to save one talent on each team, leaving the coach to decide live who they want to save and who will not move on. At last, each coach has his/her best contestant left standing to compete in the finale, where one singer wins the grand prize and is named "The Voice." Previous winners include: Javier Colon (Season 1); Jermaine Paul (Season 2); Cassadee Pope (Season 3); Danielle Bradbery (Season 4); Tessanne Chin (Season 5); Josh Kaufman (Season 6); Craig Wayne Boyd (Season 7). Sawyer (Season 8); Jordan Smith (Season 9); Alisan Porter (Season 10); Sundance Head (Season 11); Chris Blue (Season 12); Chloe Kohanski (Season 13); Brynn Cartelli (Season 14).
