The First Group of Contestants in Search of the Coveted Title and the Epic $200,000 Cash Prize is Ready to Perform for Coaches Luis Fonsi, Alejandra Guzmán, Carlos Vives and Wisin
Contestants That Are Not Chosen Will Have a Second Chance to Return to the Competition Through El Comeback Stage on Telemundo.com
MIAMI – January 17, 2020 – Coaches Luis Fonsi, Alejandra Guzmán, Carlos Vives and Wisin will kick-off the Blind Auditions with the first group of contestants of the second season on Telemundo’s "La Voz," premiering this Sunday, January 19 at 9pm/8c. This season, the U.S. Spanish-language edition of NBC's "The Voice” will also debut El Comeback Stage, an innovative digital series that offers those contestants that are not chosen during the Blind Auditions a second chance to rejoin the competition and compete for the coveted title and $200,000 cash prize.
During the premiere, viewers will witness the first group of “La Voz” contestants perform for the coaches as they face away from the stage. If a coach is impressed by a contestant’s voice, he/she presses their red button to rotate their chair. If only one coach turns, the contestant is automatically on his/her team. If more than one coach presses the button, the contestant has the full power to choose his/her coach, which leads to a battle amongst coaches to convince contestants to join their team. If no coach turns, the contestant is eliminated from the competition and may have the opportunity to enter El Comeback Stage. Once the four coaches complete their teams of 12 during the Blind Auditions, 48 contestants will move on to the second phase of the competition, “The Battles.”
El Comeback Stage will premiere exclusively on Telemundo.com/LaVoz during the Battle Phase. Running parallel to the TV show, this digital series will offer the coaches the opportunity to bring back six of their favorite contestants who they did not turn their chairs for. Singer-songwriters and Latin pop duo Mau y Ricky, who will serve as the fifth coach of “La Voz”, will prepare these talented voices musically for fans to choose who will ultimately enter the final phase, the “Live Shows.”
During the “Live Shows,” all remaining contestants compete against each other in a series of spectacular individual on-stage performances. This is one of the most exciting phases of the competition where viewers vote for their favorite contestants and decide who will be crowned as the second season winner of “La Voz,” receiving a $200,000 cash prize, doubling last year’s prize of $100,000 compliments of Pepsi, and a recording contract with Universal Music Group to produce, record and commercially release a single.
