How to get tickets to attend the recording of The Voice of Ireland

The VoiceThe wonderful Audience Researcher from Screentime Shinawil has been in contact and would love if Brian's fans can make it along to some of the recordings of The Voice of Ireland.

Below is the information you will need to get your tickets. Good luck!

Based on the international hit format, The Voice of Ireland is looking for the best singing talent that Ireland has to offer. The Voice of Ireland will consist of three phases: The Blind Auditions, The Battles and The Live Shows.

The Blind Auditions
Four coaches (Brian, Sharon Corr, Kian Egan and Bressie) will compete with each other to choose teams of contestants through a blind audition process. During these auditions the coaches will be seated with their backs to the singers, and their decisions are based solely on voice and not on looks. If a coach is impressed by the voice, they push the ‘I Want You’™ button and their chair turns to face the singer. If more than one coach pushes their button, the power shifts to the singer and they get to decide which coach they will work with.

The Battles
Once each coach has their team in place, the battle is on! Each team of singers will be mentored and developed by their coach. In the battles stage, the coaches will have two of their team members battle against each other by singing the same song, with the coach choosing which team member will advance to the live shows.

The Live Shows
In the final stage the series will go live for nine weeks and the contestants will compete to hold onto their place in the show. The live shows promise to be an un-missable weekly entertainment event that will feature not only the contestants, but performances from the coaches and special musical guests. The television audience will help to decide who stays until one team member remains for each coach, where the contestants will compete against each other in the final. In the end, only one will be crowned The Voice of Ireland and go on to win a recording contract with Universal Music.
