The Blind Auditions

The show starts with the Blind auditions. In this stage the coaches, all noteworthy performing artists, have their chairs faced away from the stage as the contestant sings. The coaches have the duration of the contestant's performance(90 seconds) to decide whether they want the contestant on their team and turn. If one coach turns, the contestant defaults to that coach but if more than one coach turns, the contestant has to choose who he/she wants to work with. In the end of the blind auditions, each coach will have twelve "Talents" on their teams.

The Battle Rounds

The next stage is the battle rounds. In this stage, the coaches pair their talents in twos and give each pair a song to perform. After the performance the coach chooses one to advance while the other goes home, or is stolen by another coach. Each coach has two steals. The coaches advance with eight talents each at the end of the battle rounds.

The Live Shows

After the battle rounds comes the Live Shows. In this stage, each of the talents perform a song given by their coach, and the coach saves one out of every four talents while the rest are left to public votes. Public votes save one talent out of each team every week while the rest are evicted. The talents are cut from 32 to 16 to 12 to 8 of them who qualify for the finals. From the Top 8, the winner and runner up are decided by the public votes.[1]
