What are the blind auditions?
If you are successful in the producers’ auditions you will go onto the blind auditions. During The Voice UK’s blind auditions the celebrity coaches sit in their chairs facing away from the stage, so they can’t see the artist during the performance.
If a coach is impressed by what they hear and wants you in their team, they hit their red button, at which point their chair rotates and they can finally see you.
However, if more than one coach turns their chair, the contestant takes all of the power and can choose which coach they want to work with. If chosen by one of the coaches, the contestant will then go on to The Voice UK’s Battles.
