JOE JONAS JOINS KELLY ROWLAND, BOY GEORGE AND DELTA GOODREM FOR THE BIGGEST SEASON OF THE VOICE YET
The Voice is set to launch on Sunday, April 15, at 7.00pm on Nine and 9Now, bringing some world-first additions to the format in the most surprising season ever.
Season seven of the award-winning entertainment blockbuster will premiere over three huge nights on Sunday, April 15, Monday, April 16, and Tuesday, April 17, with the biggest lineup of Coaches ever.
Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum recording artist Joe Jonas will be filling the fourth red chair on this season of The Voice. After rising to fame as one-third of the award-winning Jonas Brothers, the DNCE frontman is best known today for the breakout smash hit Cake By The Ocean, which has amassed well over a billion streams around the world.
“I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of a massive show like The Voice, especially getting to do it all in Australia where the fans are amazing,” Jonas said. “I had a taste of the show in the US last year, so now I have the knowledge to take #TeamJoe all the way in 2018.”
Joining Jonas are returning Coaches Kelly Rowland and Boy George, both back by popular demand after winning over the hearts of fans around the nation in season six.
Delta Goodrem, the reigning winning Coach of The Voice Australia from seasons five and six, will be looking to make it three in a row in 2018.
Sonia Kruger returns as host for The Voice.
The talent across Australia is at an all-time high in 2018, and season seven will feature the most four-chair turns in the history of The Voice Australia.
This season also sees the addition of the world-first Wild Card format, which promises to create the most thrilling Battles to date on The Voice.
THE VOICE FORMAT IN 2018:
BLIND AUDITIONS: Here we meet the hopefuls who will audition for our Coaches in the hope of turning a chair. This season there will be the most four-chair turns ever.
KNOCKOUTS: Artists go head-to-head in groups of three as they perform a song their Coach has chosen within a theme. There are two thrilling “steals” per Coach up for grabs this season.
BATTLES: In a world-first, the Battles this season will grant each Coach a one-time use of a Wild Card save. This allows each Coach to give one of their final six artists a second chance at success, with the public deciding the fate of the four Wild Card artists and sending one to the Live Shows, turning the Top 12 into a Top 13. This will also afford one Coach an advantage of having four artists heading into the Live Shows instead of three.
LIVE SHOWS: 13 artists will ultimately take part in the Live Shows. As the artists perform, a live public vote remains open on The Voice app throughout the show, determining which artist will go home the following week. Special guest performances by international artists will also be featured in the Live Shows, with more details to be announced soon.
The winner of The Voice will receive the grand prize of a recording contract with Universal Music Australia and $100,000 in prizemoney.
The Voice Australia is filmed at Fox Studios in Sydney and produced by ITV Studios on behalf of Channel Nine.
