The Voice is an American television series featuring talented contestants who showcase their talents to four coaches and the audience. The lucky winner will receive US$100, 000 and will be partnered with Universal Music Group.
During the performances, the coaches’ chairs are facing the audience. Those coaches who are interested with the performers would press their button and turns their chairs towards them with the signage at the bottom of their chair stating “I Want You.” After the performance, the performer goes to the only coach who turned to him/her. If more than one coach shows great interest in his/her performance, the contestant would have the chance to select his/her coach.
