The famous singing competition open to all ages. Since the creation of The Voice in the Netherlands by John De Mol in 2010, telecrochet has conquered the whole world. In France, the program hosted by Nikos Aliagas continues to make the best hours of French television.
After ten years of existence, the program The Voice: The most beautiful voice in France has allowed the public to discover several talents of French variety. Among the outstanding candidates, winners like Kendji Girac, Slimane or finalists like Louane and Amir shone in their respective careers. If the last defended the colors of France with his tube I sought at Eurovision 2016, winning sixth place, the three became coaches with young prodigies.
Since 2014, The Voice Kids has made it possible to open its casting to candidates aged 6 to 15. The opportunity for coaches to discover the talents of tomorrow, as talented as their elders. Thanks to the TF1 competition, several of them have been revealed and have pursued a career in a group (Kids United) or solo at Eurovision Junior (Angelina, winner of season 4, Carla Lazzari ex-DALS, not to mention Valentina and Lissandro, the only ones to win the trophy in the European music competition).
These extraordinary destinies could inspire the next candidates who participate in the ninth season broadcast on July 4, 2023 on TF1. “We will have around sixty candidates, girls and boys”, confided the emblematic host during a press conference on June 12, which Planet was able to attend, in the presence of Nolwenn Leroy, Patrick Fiori, Kendji and Slimane. .
If this new edition reserves incredible performances, surprises and emotion (according to the first images), another telecrochet format could perhaps see the light of day… You dream of passing the auditions blind, but do you think you are too old to participate? Nikos Aliagas has an idea in mind.
Facing the journalists present until the end of the presentation, the flagship face of Star Academy and former host of 50 minutes Inside submitted the idea of opening the casting exclusively to seniors. “I would like to talk about The Voice Senior one day. I’m serious,” he said. “Me, I would love, I tell the channel and the production, that one day, we do a season with real seniors, just to get out of tea dancing. I’m sure we’d be surprised”. If a handful of candidates (aged 60 and over) have marked the history of the competition without ever winning in France, a few countries have already adopted the senior version.
Born in the Netherlands in 2018, the Dutch version of The Voice Senior crowned four winners. Subsequently, other countries have adapted this format abroad such as Italy, Belgium, Spain, as well as Poland, Finland or even Brazil and Peru.
