NBC reality show ‘The Voice’ to hold auditions in Phoenix this week
PHOENIX — Do you think you have what it takes to be crowned the winner of “The Voice”? Good news: The NBC reality show is hosting auditions in Phoenix on Sunday.
That’s right, Phoenix-area singers can show off what they’ve got at the Gila River Arena, where auditions will be held starting at 7 a.m. The Valley is one of four cities where auditions will be held for this season.
Prospective artists will have to fill out an “artist account” online before stepping up to the plate. This account will ask you for your name, e-mail, audition city and more.
And for those who cannot make it to an in-person audition, video submissions can also be posted online at anytime.
But for those who will attend an in-person audition, you will be asked to print an audition pass, which you must bring with you — along with a photo ID — on Sunday.
Organizers are asking participants to have two songs prepared for their auditions, which cannot be performed with a background track, accompaniment or other instruments.
According to the website, the songs can be from any artist and any genre, as long as they “fit your voice and best represent the artist you are.” Artists should also “come dressed in a style that represents you as an artist.”
In addition, family members, friends, managers, vocal instructors, etc. will not be allowed at the audition. However, if you are under 18, one parent or guardian will be permitted to be at the audition.
And those who require special accommodations should contact the show’s casting team before their audition.
If performers are given a red card at their audition, that’s good news: That means you have a call back. If so, producers will give you a scheduled a time and date to return, which you will then perform at least two songs — one with accompaniment and an instrument and one without.
But if you are hoping to catch a glimpse of Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, Alicia Keys and Adam Levine — who will all serve as coaches on this upcoming season — you’re out of luck: They will not be at either of the auditions.
The 14th season of “The Voice” will premiere on NBC on Feb. 26.
