One of the important premises of the show is the quality of singing. Four coaches, themselves popular performing artists, train the contestants in their groups and occasionally perform with them. Talents are selected in blind auditions, where the coaches cannot see, but only hear the contestants.
Selection process and format
O Ses Türkiye consists of four judges and a presenter. The competition includes five rounds in total.
The coaches' chairs are faced towards the audience during artists' performances; those interested in an artist press their button, which turns their chair towards the artist and illuminates the bottom of the chair to read "O ses sensin" (You're that voice). At the conclusion of the performance, an artist either defaults to the only coach who turned around, or selects his or her coach if more than one coach expresses interest.
The second round is called "Duel". Each coach pairs two of his or her team members to perform together, then chooses one to advance in the competition.
If the contestants are chosen for the 3rd round of the competition, they will be eligible to move to the next round and their performances will be broadcast live. In this round, each team's remaining contestants will compete against three or four competitors every week. After the live performances of the competitors, the results will be determined through the SMS votes. In each team, the person with the most votes is eligible to contest in the following week. The fate of the last two remaining contestants will be determined by the judges. The judges' votes give one of the competitors the right to contest in the next level. This round continues until the remaining two people from each team are determined.
In the semi-final round, a total of two contestants from each team will compete in eight phases. After contestants sang their songs, the judges score their performances. The results of SMS voting will be added to the judges' score and the ones who reach 100 points will be eligible to compete in the final round.
In the final round, the remaining four contestants compete against each other. After the elimination of the fourth one, the remaining contestants will sing their songs again, and the third place will be decided according to the results of a new SMS voting. The final phase is between the two competitors whose performances will be rated through the votes, and as a result the competitor with the most votes in the contest will become the champion of O Ses Türkiye, and his/her judge's team will be chosen as the champion team.

O Ses Çocuklar
O Ses Çocuklar was the Turkish version of The Voice Kids, designed for children of age from 7 to 14 years old. O Ses Çocuklar shares the same format with the adult version O Ses Türkiye but has some differences. In the midst of preparations for the 2016 edition, it was reported that RTÜK threatened to cancel the series, stating that the format "contains content that could harm the physical, mental, or moral development of children". As of August 2019, it is unknown if the show will be rebooted in the near future.
