The Voice UK logoEven while series 2 of the television talent show The Voice continues, the search is on for contestants to appear in a third series, now commissioned by BBC executives.

Students at the Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) in Guildford, who wish to apply, were asked to prepare two covers to perform either with a backing track, a cappella or with accompaniment in order to show off their voice on the show which seeks to find the next big unsigned vocal talent from across the UK.

Francesca Palmer, Producer of The Voice said: “The Voice is always on the lookout for talented singers and welcome anyone and any genre to apply for the show. Before the open auditions we travel around the UK to meet potential singers who would be interested in auditioning for the show. We decided to come to ACM as they have a fantastic reputation for producing brilliant performers.”

ACM 1 470To date, the ACM has been represented on The Voice by vocal alumni Kirsten Joy, Indie Murton and Pixie Highley with other contestants Becky Hill and Kate Read visiting ACM to consider studying a full time course.

Commenting on the auditioning process ACM Student Olivia Boyle said: “I think nerves are something every musician has to deal with when approaching an audition. However, I was instantly put at ease by the Industry Link staff and felt their encouragement and enthusiasm which helped me carry out a confident audition in a relaxed, yet professional environment”

The Voice UK talent show is based on the concept The Voice of Holland. It was first broadcast in March 2012 on BBC One.
