The spectacular launch episode was watched by 2.14 million Australians nationally, including time-shift viewing and over 226,000 on 7plus, giving the singing competition its biggest launch since 2015 and Seven its biggest entertainment show launch since 2016.
With the megastar line-up of coaches Keith Urban, Rita Ora, Guy Sebastian and Jessica Mauboy, the first episode also smashed records on 7plus to become the biggest entertainment show launch on the streaming service ever, and the #1 live streamed entertainment show launch in Australia in 2021.

The incredible new season of The Voice on Seven is the best yet. We knew the global mega-hit format would captivate Australian audiences with its strongest ever line-up of superstar coaches and world-class artists, and we’re thrilled at the record audiences on television and 7plus. With more electrifying performances and spinetingling chair-turning moments to come, the new season will only get better.Angus Ross, Seven’s Network Director of Programming
