Holland's hit show, "The Voice of Holland", by reality creator John de Mol, who is the executive producer with Mark Burnett, is set to hit American coasts accordingly in May 2011, so it probably won't compete with any rival show, as X Factor ignagural season in the continent will premier in September, and Idol ends in May. Still, since I love both formats, I'll cover both of them, as well as XF UK, Australia and possibly New Zeland. So that are 5 shows, will I be able to do that? I'll try hard at least.

Continuing with "The Voice", which name was intended to be "The Voice of America", having to ditch that last part cause it's the name of a federal brodcaster, the show is all about, as stated in the name, the voice. So Idol/X Factor failed contestants who have a great voice but not exactly the look, this is the show for you!! The innovative blind auditions make it possible for any good singer to advance, as the contestants sing to the back of the judges, who may opt to select those singers, only then facing them. If more than one judge wants the contestant, it may choose his/her favourite judge. By this, the judges may form teams, which will compete against each other. We'll focus on the format later. Contestants may be 18 or older to apply and be US legal residents. Visit the show's site for more info on the auditions and to download the application form.
