The Voice of Ireland is back for a third series and producers are looking for Ireland’s most exciting, fresh and unique talent.
The RTE show reached an excess of 700,000 viewers for series two and this platform presents an amazing opportunity for budding or established singers to get a real insight into the music industry, with the winning contestant securing a recording contract from Universal Records.
The series, which will be aired on RTÉ in January 2014, will see the four famous chairs turning for a new wave of talent and the application process is now open. You can apply online through www.rte.ie/thevoice by submitting an MP3 recording, video or Youtube clip, soundcloud or any digital format that showcases your voice.
Produced by Screentime ShinAwiL the third series promises to build on the success of previous years. The show will continue to follow the nail biting format where contestants are judged solely on their voices as the celebrity coaches sit with their backs to the stage – only turning around to see the person behind the voice when they are sure they want them on their team.
RTÉ presenter Kathryn Thomas, who will reprise her role as host said: “I’m delighted the Voice is back for its third season. There is so much musical talent in this country, I have no doubt the standards are going to be even higher this time round. I'd encourage anybody who is even half thinking about entering to stop thinking and just do it. This is a huge platform for any artist. The coaches line up will be interesting too. There are so many rumours flying around about who is returning and who's not. Either way, I can't wait to get stuck in.”
"I'm very excited to bring this hugely successful series back to RTE. It's a firm favourite with viewers and series two was one of the most popular programmes on Irish Television this year. This show offers singers a great platform to showcase their talent and the winning act a life changing opportunity. The best of luck to everyone who applies," said Bill Malone of RTÉ.
‘We have had some amazing talent come through the doors of the Helix the last two years and we want this series to be even better. We are looking for people who have been singing for years but need an extra helping hand to get a foot on the ladder and of course we want to see the untapped talent which Ireland has an abundance of," addocdring to Larry Bass of Screentime ShinAwil.
Applications are open until Tuesday the 3rd of September. If you’re over 18 and think you could convince a coach to turn for you in the Blind Auditions, then you can apply at rte.ie/thevoice .
