The Voice Kids was a Dutch 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 six and fourteen years.


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 in his or her 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 audition. In each team, only two acts should 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 to go home. The coaches decide together with the audience at home that act is eliminated; they each have half of the votes. In the second season was only which act was eliminated at home by the public.

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

The judges / coaches Marco Borsato, Nick & Simon and Angela Groothuizen published in 2011. VanVelzen could not participate in the jury because he would be during the shooting father. Angela Groothuizen was appointed by John de Mol to also participate in the jury during the second season.

On April 17, 2015 said Nick & Simon at RTL Late Night quit familiar with The Voice Kids, because they have many other projects which receive priority.

For the first time in the show's history, The Voice Kids will have its fourth coach.[1] Douwe Bob will serve as the fourth coach on the seventh season.[2]
