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: a blind audition, a battle phase, and live performance shows. Four judges/coaches, all noteworthy recording artists, choose teams of contestants through a blind audition process. After being acquired by TV Azteca in season 8, the show featured the Blind auditions, Knockouts, Battles and Live 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 Knockout RoundsEdit

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 Live Shows.

Fourth Phase – The Live Performance ShowsEdit

In The Live 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 of Live Shows. This repeats throughout the shows until the Semifinal were only one artist from each team advances to the Finale as the Top 4. In the Finale, the highest voted artist wins the title as their country’s The Voice, along with their coach.

CoachesEdit

The show premiered 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 the coaches. For the third season, the coaching panel totally changed again. On August 2013, it was announced that Marco Antonio Solís, Alejandra Guzmán, David Bisbal and Wisin & Yandel would be the coaches. For the fourth season, Yuri, Julión Álvarez were announced as coaches alongside Italian singer Laura Pausini and The Voice Australia coach, Ricky Martin. After a three season absence, Alejandro Sanz returned as coach alongside new coaches, Gloria Trevi, J Balvin, and a duo chair composed of the frontmen of Los Tigres del Norte for season five. For the sixth season Laura Pausini and Yuri returned after a one-season absence joined by Maluma and Carlos Vives which premiered September 7, 2014.[8] Maluma had previously coached the kids version. 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 with new coaches Anitta and Carlos Rivera.[9] Natalia Jiménez former coach of La Voz Kids USA was announced as the fourth and final coach. Season seven was the last season produced by Televisa after the shows’s rights were acquired by TV Azteca. Season eight premiered March 13, 2019 on the new channel with Jimena Peréz as host. Belinda was tapped as the first coach, followed by Yahir, and Ricardo Montaner. Lupillo Rivera, whose sister also served the same role in season two, was later announced as the final coach. On January 21, 2020 it was announced that Belinda and Montaner would return for their second season as coaches, alongside María José and Christian Nodal who joined the panel. A month later, Eddy Vilard and Sofía Aragón were confirmed as the new hosts replacing Jimena Peréz.
