The people who created the show are John de Mol and Roel van Velzen. When Erland Galjaard, the director of RTL4, was already very excited about X-Factor, also a talent show. TVOH would be also a show where social media will be involved, this was a first. The show was nominated in 2011 for the ‘Gouden Televizier-ring’. And in 2012 the show was nominated for the ‘Beeld en geluid award’. the first edition of TVOH was a great success and therefor children wanted to participate in the show.

Jeroen van der Boom participated for one season and became 4th with Leonie Meijer. I don’t think Jeroen van de Boom is a great coach, because he always had an angry face and smiles rarely.
Angela Groothuizen participated in two seasons and ended in both seasons 3rd. In the first season she became 3rd with Shary-An Nivillac and in the second season with Erwin Nyhoff. She was a great coach, she was always smiling and had a lot of energy.
Nick & Simon participated in three seasons and in all of these seasons they became 2nd. The 1st season they became 2nd with Pearl Jozefzoon, in the 2nd season with Chris Hordijk and in the 3rd season with Johannes Rypma. They were quite nice coaches, but to me, they should have had more energy.
Roel van Velzen also participated in three seasons. One time he ended on the 1st place, one time on the 2nd place and one time on the 4th place. The first season he was 1st with Ben Saunders, the second season he became 4th with Paul Turner and the third season he became 2nd with Floortje Smit. He was very funny and had lots of energy even though he was very small.
Marco Borsato was the longest sitting coach, he stayed 5 seasons. He also had the most successes. He ended four times on the 1st place and 1 time on the 4th place. In his he became 1st with Iris Kroes. The 3rd season he became 4th with Ivar Oosterloo. But in his 3rd season he came back in 1st place with Julia van der Toorn. Also in season 5, he became 1st with O’G3NE. In his last season he also became 1st with Maan de Steenwinkel. This was a nice ending for him. He’s one of the best coach I’ve ever seen. He recognizes talent, he actually always wins, he has lots of energy and he supports you after the voice of Holland.
Trijntje Oosterhuis participated for 3 seasons in TVOH: season 3, 4 and 5. In season 3, which was her first season, she became immediately 1st with Leona Phillipo. In season 4 she became 4th with Wudstik. In her last season she ended on a 3rd place with Emmaly Brown. Personally I do not like her, because she’s too lazy to get out of her chair, but she had lots of energy and I respect that.
Ilse de Lange only participated 2 seasons, season 4 and season 5. In her first season, season 4, she ended 2nd with Mitchell Brunings. In her last season, season 5, she ended 4th with Duncan de Moor. I like her accent, it sounds really funny and she is really nice. But when she sings, I don’t like her voice.
Ali B joints TVOH since season 4 to season 7, which is on tv now. In his first season, season 4, he ended 3rd with Jill Helena. In season 5 he ended with Guus Mulder on a 2nd place. In his 3rd season, season 6, he ended 3rd with Brace, an old friend of him. I see him as the best male coach of TVOH, because he’s so funny, cheerful, cool and has so much energy and he sings amazing.
Anouk only participated 1 season, season 6. In season 6 she ended on a 4th place with Jennie Lena. She was also one of her backing vocals at her own concerts, so they already knew each other. In my opinion, Anouk is really arrogant. However I think she has a very good voice and does have beautiful songs.
Sanne Hans is now participating for the 2nd time, season 6 and season 7 (which is on tv now). In her first season, season 6, she ended 2nd with Dave Vermeulen. She is a great person and I think she is the best female coach of TVOH. In fact she is very funny, has a great voice and she recognizes the real person in people.
Guus Meeuwis only participates in season 7. I cannot tell anything about him, because the show is still on TV now. I don’t know much about him, but I know that he writes great Dutch music and that he has a powerful voice.
Waylon also participates since the latest season, which is on TV now. I think he’s the best coach TVOH has, because he has an amazing voice, he recognizes talent, he’s honest, he really understands people and he challenges his candidates.
The show consist of several rounds. It begins with the production audition. This is a preselection with no cameras. After the preselections the blind auditions will follow. During the Blind Auditions candidates will sing a 1 minute song of their own choice. The coaches sit backwards to the stage, so that they can only judge on musicality and vocals. When a coach want the candidate for his or her team, they have to push the ‘I Want You’ button. The coach’s seat rotates in the direction of the stage. When two or more coaches have pressed the button, the candidate chooses the coach which he or she wants to continue with.
