NBC Readying a Children’s Version of ‘The Voice’

April 15, 2013  •  Post A Comment

NBC has a project in the pipeline that is a version of its hit singing competition "The Voice" for kids, aimed at featuring singers age 8 to 14, the New York Post reports.

While casting calls went out last week, the network placed the project on hold a few days later, deciding to tape the series at the same time and on the same stage as "The Voice,’ the story says. "The Voice Kids" has been a hit in other countries such as Germany and Holland.

A source close to the project reportedly said producers hope to begin production by the end of this year.

A young version of "American Idol" debuted in 2003, but "American Juniors" failed to catch on and was canceled after one season.

  1. I like the Voice because they are pre-selected before the coaches hear them. A few teenagers get through the opening rounds, but don’t survive against those with more experience. Just like mothers entering their daughters in single digit ages to beauty contests, this is ridiculous. There are less than a dozen (if that many) under 20 professional singers and most of them work on a variation of Annie. Give it up.

  2. Not seeing a problem with this , I just checked out some posts on Youtube of the Dutch show, and it could work.
    As for when I would show it? I would put it on Sunday at 8pm, and go after the Family Demo.
