The Voice Nigeria is back with Season 3. The singing competition is returning with the strongest vocalists from across the country invited to compete in the blockbuster vocal competition show.
The competition which makes use of Celebrity musicians as coaches will return with two new exciting additions to the coaches.
How The Voice Nigeria Season 3 is Structured
The show’s innovative format features four stages of competition:
- The first begins with the blind audition
- The battle round
- The brand new knockouts
- The live performance
During the blind auditions, the decisions from the musician coaches are based solely on voice and not on looks. The coaches hear the artists perform, but they don’t get to see them — thanks to rotating chairs. If a coach is impressed by the artist’s voice, he/she pushes a button to select the artist for his/her team. At this point, the coach’s chair will swivel so that he/she can face the artist he/she has selected. If more than one coach pushes their button, the power then shifts to the artist to choose which coach they want to work with. If no coach pushes their button, the artist is eliminated from the competition.
Once the teams are set, the battle is on. Coaches will dedicate themselves to developing their team of artists, giving them advice, and sharing the secrets of their success along with the help from their celebrity advisers. During the battle rounds the coaches will pit two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience.
After the vocal battle, the coach must choose which of his/her singers will advance to the next round of competition, while the losing artist is available to be stolen by another coach. Each coach has two steals during the battle rounds.
