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.
