The Voice Kids is a Dutch talent-search television program produced by Talpa Productions and is broadcast on RTL 4. It is based on The Voice of Holland. Participation is only open to children between the ages of eight and fourteen years. Following the success of the program in the Netherlands, the concept was marketed worldwide.


The show consists of four phases: production audition, Blind Audition, The Battles and the final. The production auditions are not televised and only the good singers are selected. Like in Idols, Popstars, and The X Factor, they then audition for the judges, but in The Voice Kids, they do a blind audition, which is similar to the theater rounds in the previously mentioned talent shows. During the blind auditions, the coaches choose singers based on musicality and voice. Each candidate will have the opportunity to sing a song of their choice for about a minute. If one of the coaches decides to place the artist in his or her team, he or she must press the "I Want You" button. When two or more coaches want the same artist on their team, the artist may choose which coach he or she wants to go with.

When all the teams are full, the artists go to the next round with their coaches. These are "The Battles". Each coach groups three singers together to battle against each other together to sing a song chosen by the coach. The coach can only choose one singer from each battle. Whoever it is, decides the "Dream Team" in addition to the coach consists of one person. The act that goes directly go to the "Sing Off". Each team will have five acts in the Sing Off. All artists must sing the song from their blind audition. In each team, only two acts will be chosen to go to the finals.

After the Sing Offs, there are six finalists (seasons 1-6; eight in season 7). They sing in consultation with their coach. The audience at home can then vote on which act has to go home. The coaches decide together with the audience at home which act is eliminated; they each have half of the votes.

In the final stage, there's still one finalist per team. The winner will be named using televoting by the public at home to "The Voice Kids".

Coaches and hosts

The judges/ coaches Marco Borsato, Nick & Simon and Angela Groothuizen were published in 2011. Roel van Velzen could not participate in the jury because he would become a father during the shooting period. Angela Groothuizen was appointed by John de Mol to also participate in the jury during the second season. The host from the adult version, Martijn Krabbé and Wendy van Dijk, also appointed as host in the kid's version.

On April 17, 2015, Nick & Simon confirmed at RTL Late Night that they would quit The Voice Kids because they had many other projects which receive priority. From season 5, Nick & Simon and Angela Groothuizen were replaced by coaches from the adult show, Ilse DeLange and Ali B.

On the seventh season of the show, for the first time in the show's history, The Voice Kids would have its fourth coach.[1] Douwe Bob would serve as the fourth coach on the seventh season.[2]. However, Douwe Bob would be replaced by Anouk in the eighth season.[3]
