The Voice: new coach, rules of the game… everything that will change in season 11

the essential
A few weeks before the broadcast of the eleventh season of “The Voice”, TF1 unveiled the changes awaiting viewers.

Here is “The Voice” again! While the last season, an “All stars” version brought together talents who had already participated in telecrochet, TF1 is preparing to broadcast a new season. Already the eleventh edition of “The Voice”. This new season was detailed by Nikos Aliagas, the four coaches, the director of TF1 streaming programs and the producer of ITV studios France. The broadcast date has not yet been announced.

A surprise coach

The four coaches of the eleventh season will be Florent Pagny, Amel Bent, Vianney and Marc Lavoine. A fifth coach will join the cast: Nolwenn Leroy. The ex-winner of the “Star Academy” will have a new role: she will be “surprise coach”. She will be able to pick up four talents among the fifty or so candidates eliminated from the blind auditions. The four main coaches were unaware during the filming. Once his talents have been selected, Nolwenn Leroy will be able to organize two battles. The winners will then be able to join the main coaches.

A new rule of the game

Between the blind auditions and the live broadcasts, candidates will have to go through several stages. The “battles” test, a face-to-face between candidates, will be followed by the “cross-battles” which are a confrontation between candidates from different teams with a public vote on the set. New this year: there will be a new stage called the “super cross-battles”. At the end of this final confrontation, the survivors will reach the semi-finals. The “KO” test, launched in December 2018, is completely abolished.

An “extraordinary and different” cast

Can “The Voice” still find nuggets of the song? Yes, according to the director of flow programs for the TF1 group. Rémi Faure promises “an extraordinary and different cast”. The candidates will be aged 16 to 71, a father-son duo, groups, from very different worlds.
