The Rai studio in via Mecenate in Milan is preparing to welcome the competitors for the penultimate appointment with the Blind Auditions, or the famous blind auditions. During this new session, the coaches choose the singers who join the 9 already selected during the first episode.

The mechanism is the same as always. The singers appear on stage and start the performance. The four coaches have their backs turned and cannot look at who is performing. It must be the voice that strikes them, the voiceand therefore to show appreciation they can only press the red button in front of them.

Once pressed, the chair they sit on turns and each of them can talk to the aspiring singer. Above all, whoever turns around has the right and duty to take him into their team. If more than one coach turns around, a nice back-and-forth begins, which ends with the competitor’s decision. The only one who can choose which team to be part of.
