Storyline

There are four coaches, who are all famous in the music industry. During the blind auditions these coaches will turn around in their chairs when they hear a performer they want in their team. If there are more coaches who want a performer, he or she gets to choose who they want as their coach. During the battles there will be two or three contestants from the same team up against eachother, performing the same song together. The coach then has to choose one of them to get through to the live shows. Written by immevangorp

Do you like spinning chairs?
3 June 2012 | by studioATSee all my reviews

For years the BBC have watched as ITV have had hit reality show after reality show and now they've decided to ditch half their comedy programmes in favour of spending loads of money on this reality show.

The gamble nearly paid off, the initial auditions did well in the ratings but this was purely based on novelty factor - judges in spinning chairs with their backs to the audience. It was something we hadn't seen before so people watched it.

Then they put the contestants in a boxing ring for a 'battle'. This again was something we'd never seen before so the ratings were still good.

But then the show just became like every other talent show and after being touted as something 'totally different that would change the music industry' we realised that no, this was just a talent contest like the many others we've seen come and go.

Nice gamble by the BBC but the ratings tell the story.
