The Voice Australia is an Australian reality and talent show that is part of the worldwide The Voice-franchise, which grew from the original Dutch version of the same name. In the show, a panel of four well-known recording artists takes on the roles of judges and coaches in their search for Australia's next recording sensation. The eventual winner of each season receives a recording contract with Universal Music. While the host of the show, as well as the panel of judges/coaches,? can very per season, the format of the show remains the same. It starts with the blind auditions, where the panel members create their teams, the battle rounds, where the teams compete in duets in order to get into the next round, and finally the live performance shows, where eventually the final four contestants will decide who becomes a professional artist.
