La Voz

Mexico was the first Spanish-speaking country to adapt this format and the first among 6 globally. The series' first episode scored a rating of 28.2/47.1, surpassing Spanish-language TV series La Academia rating of 9.6/17.[2][3]

The last series produced by Televisa had Lele Pons as host and Maluma, Anitta, Carlos Rivera and Natalia Jiménez as jury. In 2019, the license of The Voice format was acquired from Televisa to TV Azteca. A new edition was announced for this season under a different title (La Voz instead of La Voz... México)[4] with the leadership of Jimena Pérez[5] and with Ricardo Montaner, Yahir, Belinda and Lupillo Rivera as coaches.[6]

ProgramEdit

The official website says of the program:

(The Voice... Mexico) is a television program that sets aside the appearance of any competitor, that matters is finding a new voice to the end the program. The Voice... Mexico tries to find candidates with real vocal skills. And for that, four major music stars, are responsible for finding and training the next great Voice of Mexico. "[7]

This program has already become a very famous, because unlike other programs so far, this is divided into three parts and the artist do not have to be locked up almost half a year with teachers in a school.[7]

FormatEdit

The series consisted of three phases: Blind audition, Battle phase, and Performance shows. Four judges/coaches, all noteworthy recording artists, choose teams of contestants through a blind audition process (12 members in season 1-3 & 5-7, 16 in season 4, 51 in season 8 and 42 in season 9). After being acquired by TV Azteca in season 8, the show featured the Blind auditions, Knockouts, Battles and Performance Shows.

First Phase – The Blind AuditionsEdit

Each judge has the length of the auditioner's performance (about one minute) to decide if he or she wants that singer on his or her team; if two or more judges want the same singer (as happens frequently), the singer has the final choice of coach. In the seventh season, the block button was featured where a coach could prevent another coach from getting a contestant.

Second Phase – The KnockoutsEdit

In the eight season, the second phase was changed from the Battles to the Knockouts. In this phase three artists from the same team sing an individual song and their coach chooses the winner. The two losing artists are available to 'steal' by the other three coaches.

Third Phase – The BattlesEdit

The Battles were moved to the third stage after season 8. The Battle Rounds remained the same with coaches having two of their artists battle against each other directly by singing the same song together, with the coach choosing which artist advances to the Performance Shows. The losing artist is available to 'steal' by the other three coaches.

Fourth Phase – The Performance ShowsEdit

In the Performance Shows, each artist competes to receive their coach’s and public’s vote. The artists with the highest votes from their team advance to the next round. This repeats throughout the show until the Finale, where one artist per team is voted as the Top 4. In the Finale, the highest voted artist wins the title as their country’s The Voice, along with their coach.

Coaches and hostsEdit

The show premiered on September 11, 2011 with Espinoza Paz, Alejandro Sanz, Lucero, Aleks Syntek as coaches and Mark Tacher as host. For season two, Jacqueline Bracamontes was announced as the replacement of Tacher. Jenni Rivera, Miguel Bosé, Paulina Rubio, and Beto Cuevas were announced as coaches. On August 2013, it was announced that Marco Antonio Solís, Alejandra Guzmán, David Bisbal and Wisin & Yandel would be the coaches in the third season. For the fourth season, Yuri, Julión Álvarez, Laura Pausini and Ricky Martin took over the coaching panel. For season five, after a three season absence, Sanz returned as coach alongside new coaches Gloria Trevi, J Balvin, and a doble chair for the frontmen of Los Tigres del Norte. For the sixth season Pausini and Yuri returned after a one-season absence joined by Maluma and Carlos Vives which premiered October 15, 2017.[8] After five seasons as host, Bracamontes was replaced by YouTube figure Lele Pons for season seven. Maluma was announced to return for his second season, and was joined by new coaches Anitta, Carlos Rivera, and Natalia Jiménez.[9]

In December 2018, TV Azteca acquired the show's rights. The first coach confirmed was Belinda, followed by Yahir, Ricardo Montaner and Lupillo Rivera. Season eight premiered on March 13, 2019 on the new channel with Jimena Peréz as host. On January 21, 2020, it was announced that Belinda and Montaner would be joined by María José and Christian Nodal to coach the participants in season nine. A month later, Eddy Vilard and Sofía Aragón were confirmed as new hosts, replacing Jimena Peréz. Filming for the tenth season started February 2021, revealing María José as the only coach returning, alongside Miguel Bosé who coached in season two, and debuting coaches; Edith Márquez, and Jesús Navarro.
