The BBC is reportedly planning to make each performance on the UK version of The Voice available for download each week.

The Voice was confirmed to air on BBC One in 2012, after becoming a success on NBC in the US.

The BBC will release every performance on the show as either a free download or with proceeds going to charity for seven days, before it is then released commercially, according to Music Week.

ITV's The X Factor last year released every finalist's performance as a paid download. However, the tracks were not made eligible to enter the official charts, and it was unknown how many downloads each track sold.

Sky's Must Be the Music also made tracks available for download, resulting in Top Ten hits for Pepper and Piano and Emma's Imagination.

BBC One controller Danny Cohen confirmed that The Voice will not air at the same time of year as The X Factor.

Cheryl Cole, Robbie Williams and Dannii Minogue have all been linked with a mentoring role in the BBC One series. Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green mentor the contestants in the US version.
