ABOUT LA VOZ KIDS:
The show’s innovative format features three stages of competition: the first begins with the Blind Audition, then the battle round, and finally, the performance shows. During the Blind Auditions, the decisions from the musician coaches are based solely on voice and not on looks. The coaches have their back to the participants and hear them perform, but they don't get to see them – thanks to rotating chairs. If a coach is impressed by the participant’s voice, he/she pushes a button to select the participant for his/her team. At this point, the coach’s chair will swivel so that he/she can face the participant he/she has selected. If more than one coach pushes their button, the power then shifts to the participant to choose which coach they want to work with. If no coach pushes his or her button, the participant is eliminated from the competition.

Once the teams are set, the battle is on. Coaches will dedicate themselves to developing their team of participants, giving them advice, and sharing the secrets of their success along with the help from their celebrity advisers. During the battle rounds the coaches will pit three of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience.

In the final performance phase of the competition, the top participants from each team will compete each week against each other. The television audience and the Coaches will decide who will stay in the competition. In the end, one will be named "La Voz Kids" and will receive the grand prize of a recording contract and a scholarship.

“La Voz Kids” is a presentation of Talpa Media USA Inc. The show is created by John de Mol, who will executive-produce along with Stijn Bakkers and Katrina Fernandez.
