Cape Town - After weeks of hype and tease South Africa's newest singing reality show The Voice SA makes it's big TV debut.

On Sunday, 31 January at 17:30 M-Net viewers will be able to see how Kahn Morbee, Lira, Karen Zoid and Bobby van Jaarsveld take their seats in the soon-to-be iconic red chairs. 

These four seasoned performers, who all have massive followings and loads of accolades behind their names, are the four coaches in the local version of the singing contest that originated as The Voice of Holland and has been a huge hit in more than 60 countries across the globe. 

"The Voice South Africa is taking singing contests to the next level," says M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard. "In this feel-good, proudly South African show it’s all about ‘the voice’; the singers are all extraordinary talent who can sing; and the competition between the coaches to nab the best of this talent for their teams results in emotional roller-coaster rides. Get ready for some heartfelt moments, great tension, unexpected drama and a few tears."

There are three phases to the competition. 

It kicks off with seven episodes of blind auditions during which the coaches sit with their backs to the talent in order to make decisions based on the performers’ vocal ability. 

Originally, these blind auditions shows would have been 60 minutes long and screened between 18:00 and 19:00, "but the quality of performances was so extraordinary that we decided to extend the blind audition episodes to 90 minutes," says Lombard. 

Host, Lungile Radu gives you a taste of what to expect.
