How to Watch

Watch The Voice Monday, September 25 at 8/7c and Tuesday September 26 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

Over the course of its 21 seasons, The Voice has helped discover and launch the careers of hundreds of singers. And those singers vary in genre, race, gender, and age. That last descriptor is what we're diving into today. Just how old do you have to be to audition for The Voice? We have the answer for you, below. Read on. 

What is The Voice age limit to audition?

The Voice's age limit is 13+. For Season 22, airing this fall, you must be at least 13 years old by October 1, 2022 to audition.

Auditions are now done virtually.  "I actually think some of the virtual has been really great for us," Michelle McNulty, the supervising casting director for McNulty Casting, Inc., told NBC Insider. (Her team is responsible for finding the talent who ultimately competes on The Voice.)   "Because when we were going out and traveling, people were having to spend so much money on getting to us. Now, people can actually just do this from the comfort of their home. It's really helped us find some people that might not have had the money or the means or the ways to get to one of our audition cities."

She continued, "If you’re going through our open call process or even if my team reaches out to you, what’ll end up happening is: Somebody from my team will contact you. From there, we’ll ask to have them send multiple songs. If we like what we hear from there, we’ll send them to a casting interview where we kind of get to know them a little bit more. And then from there, there’s a potential of us asking for additional songs or an additional interview. From there, we have to ultimately present to the producers and network executives. There are definitely cuts along the way. And then after that, we give them a call and say, 'Congratulations, you made it to a Blind Audition.'" 

Auditions for The Voice Season 22, returning this fall, are currently closed.
