SLIDESHOW: On-song at Cask for The Voice audition
Undiscovered talent from across Doncaster turned out in force to take part in a singing competition with one of the top prizes in show business up for grabs.
Cask Corner hosted an audition for ITV’s The Voice with successful entrants winning the chance to appear in front of millions of viewers and celebrities including will.i.am.
Whilst this stage of the competition wasn’t televised we could well see the best Doncaster crooners on our screens next year if they impressed the talent spotters who were hidden in the crowd that attended.
A spokesman for The Voice told the Doncaster Free Press: “It was a great night with lots of talent and we were excited by the voices we heard.”
For anyone not familiar with the television programme, The Voice is a reality singing competition franchise.
It is based on the reality singing competition The Voice of Holland, which was originally created by Dutch television producer John de Mol.

The show’s format features a number of stages.
The first is the blind auditions, in which the four coaches listen to the contestants facing away from the stage to avoid seeing them.
If a coach likes what they hear they press a button to signify that they are interested. The contestants who successfully pass the blind auditions proceed to the battle rounds, where the coaches put two of their own team members against each other.
After the vocal face-off, the coach must choose only one to advance.
