The Voice – Norges beste stemme (Norwegian for The Voice – Norway's best Voice) is a Norwegian reality singing competition and local version of The Voice first broadcast as The Voice of Holland. It started on 27 January 2012 and the final aired on 25 May 2012 on TV2.

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. Martin Halla from "Team Magne" mentored by Magne Furuholmen won the competition.

The series consists of three phases: a blind audition, a battle phase, and live performance shows. Four judges/coaches, all noteworthy recording artists, choose teams of contestants through a blind audition process. Each judge has the length of the auditioner's performance (about one minute) to decide if he or she wants that singer on his or her team; if two or more judges want the same singer (as happens frequently), the singer has the final choice of coach.

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 four individual "battles" into the first live round. Within that first live round, the surviving four acts from each team again compete head-to-head, with public votes determining one of two acts from each team that will advance to the final eight, while the coach chooses which of the remaining three acts comprises the other performer remaining on the team.

In the final phase, the remaining contestants (Final 24) compete against each other in live broadcasts. The television audience and the coaches have equal say 50/50 in deciding who moves on to the final 4 phase. With one team member remaining for each coach, the (final 4) contestants compete against each other in the finale with the outcome decided solely by public vote.

Season 1 (2012)

The coaches for the debut seasons are singer/songwriter Sondre Lerche, pop star Hanne Sørvaag, Madcon member Yosef Wolde-Mariam and former A-ha member Magne Furuholmen. Øyvind Mund is hosting the programme while Maria Bodøgaard shares hosting duties as the social media correspondent.

Season 2 (2012)

Due to the success of the inaugural season, a second season was announced for 2013. Sondre Lerche is the only judge returning from the inaugural 2012. All other three judges from that season, namely Hanne Sørvaag, Yosef Wolde-Mariam and Magne Furuholmen are being replaced. The three new mentors, are singer and songwriter Espen Lind, singer and former Aqua member Lene Nystrøm and rapper and music producer Tommy Tee.
