The Voice is a reality television singing competition franchise. It is based on the reality singing competition The Voice of Holland, which was originally created by Dutch television producer John de Mol. Many other countries have already adapted the format and began airing their own versions since 2011. It has become a rival to the Idol franchise, and The X Factor franchise.

Contestants are aspiring singers drawn from public auditions. The show's format features four stages of competition. The first is the blind auditions, in which the four coaches listen to the contestants in chairs facing opposite the stage as to avoid seeing them. If a coach likes what they hear from that contestant, they press a button to rotate their chairs to signify that they are interested in working with that contestant. If more than one coach presses their button, the contestant chooses the coach he or she wants to work with. The blind auditions end when each coach has a set number of contestants to work with (such as 14 or 15 in Indonesian version, 13 in the Philippine version, 12 in the UK version (10 in the first season), 12 in the U.S. version, 18 in the U.S. Spanish version or 16 in the Dutch version). Coaches will dedicate themselves to developing their singers mentally, musically and in some cases physically, giving them advice, and sharing the secrets of their success.
