The BBC yesterday invited solo singers and duos to begin applying to attend open auditions, from which chosen hopefuls will advance to perform for and work with the four - still unknown - coaches.

While only the "very best singers make it through to the televised auditions", they will then have to impress the panel during three stages, 'The Blind Auditions', 'The Battles', and the 'Live Shows'.

As with the US edition, the auditions will see the panel face away from the singers as they perform. If impressed, they will hit their button, making their chair rotate so that they can see the act. If more than one judge is impressed, the singer then decides which one they want to work with.

Once each of the four coaches has completed their team, they will then "dedicate themselves to developing their artists, giving them advice, and sharing the secrets of their success in the music industry".

'The Battles' will see the members of each team go head-to-head, as they perform a duet in front of a studio audience. Immediately after the sing-off, their mentor will choose which singer to bring through to the live shows.

The successful singers will then advance to the final stage of the competition, where they will perform not only to impress their mentor, but also the audience at home. Each coach will have one artist left to compete in the final - with one of them being named 'The Voice' and signing the deal with Universal.
