What is The Voice of the Philippines
The series is part of The Voice franchise and is based on a similar competition format in the Netherlands entitled The Voice of Holland. The whole format features four coaches or judges searching for a batch of talented new artists, who could become the Philippines’ new singing superstar. The show’s concept is indicated by its title: The 4 coaches will only judge a singer hopeful termed by the show as “Artist” with only his/her vocal talent without prejudice to his/her physical bearing.
It’s with this concept that makes The Voice franchise rise above other known reality talent searches which airs in any known media platform such as The X Factor franchise, the Got Talent franchise or even the Idol franchise. The lucky Artists who have advanced from the audition round would be split into four teams, whom are coached/mentored by the 4 well-known personalities in terms of Singing which in the show, termed “Coaches” who in turn would collaborate with them and choose songs for their artists to perform. Only 16 years old and above can participate. (source:Wikipedia)
