After the successful 2021 season and The Voice Generations, The Voice is coming back to our screens.

Beloved judges Keith Urban, Rita Ora, Guy Sebastian, and Jessica Mauboy are also returning to mentor some of Australia’s most promising singers.

Last year’s season was a smashing success.

Once the chocolate wrappers are thrown away this Easter weekend, look forward to tucking in on the couch to catch The Voice’s premiere on Monday, April 18.

Fans got their first look into the upcoming season in early March, and the incredible talent featured in the trailer instantly had us hooked.

In disbelief, a contestant can be heard musing, “To go from singing in my living room to singing on The Voice stage…”

After witnessing a memorable performance, Keith said in the video: “That’s got me sitting forward. I’ve never heard anything like that.”

Hosted once again by Sonia Kruger , this is the 11th season of the show with over 60 talented individuals trying to turn the coaches’ red chairs during the Blind Auditions.

She’s back! Sonia Kruger will return as host.

In celebration of the upcoming season, Keith told Seven, “What will get me the most is when I feel something; when there’s a truth in their voice that speaks to me beyond the sound of just their vocal, and I’m able to feel it deeply.”

“Listening for passion,” added Rita. “I want to hear how much the person loves to sing and their passion for their artistry.”

Jess is interested in storytelling: “I want them to make me jump out of my chair to learn more about them as an artist.”

While last year’s winning coach, Guy, told Seven, he’s searching for a “special voice.

“I don’t know anything technical about music, but I’ve always been singing in the car.”

“It is worth fighting for as a coach when you hear it.”

If that wasn’t exciting enough, our first contestant Robbie Dolan, a jokey and dad-to-be, has been revealed.

Ahead of his national TV debut, he told Seven, “I don’t know anything technical about music, but I’ve always been singing in the car, on the way to the races and in the shower.

“I’m not too sure if I can even sing well enough for something like this. I just know that I love singing, it’s definitely from the heart.”

Catch The Voice on Monday, April 18, on Channel 7 and 7plus.
