PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea (PNG Post-Courier, May 8, 2014) – Papua New Guinean’s sensation and music star Samantha Clarke will appear in Australia’s reality talent show – The Voice tonight. The Voice will be aired by Imparja live tonight including local TV station EMTV.

The reality show which has seen stars rise from nothing to making million dollars of albums sales has proved match maker for many talented Australian singers. And now PNG’s very own talented Ms Clarke is just about to stand into The Voice.

The 21-year-old beautiful is from Australia mix Trobriand Islands. Ms Clarke will become the first Papua New Guinean singer to compete in a highly rated reality TV show. This is history in the making.

Ms Clarke is not new in singing. She has won the local Digicel Stars because her voice was exceptional. Tonight she will stand in front of a much different crowd and much bigger crowd than she is used to. More than 1,000,000 viewers around Australia get to watch this popular show.

The reality competition show sees celebrity artists chose paired up with teams of singers that they will coach and mentor until the very best of best remains standing in the end.

The first series of the The Voice, premiered on 15 April 2012 and concluded on 18 June 2012, with Karise Eden being crowned as the winner. The series consists of three phases: a blind audition, a battle phase, and live performance shows.

Four coaches, all noteworthy recording artists, choose teams of artists through a blind audition process. Each judge has the length of the artist's performance (about one minute) to decide if he or she wants that artist on his or her team; if two or more coaches want the same artist (as happens frequently), the artist has the final choice of coach.

Each team of artists is mentored and developed by its respective coach. In the second stage, called the battle phase, coaches have two of their team members battle against each other directly by singing the same song together, with the coach choosing which team member to advance from each of six individual "battles" into the first live round.

Within that first live round, the surviving four artists from each team again compete head-to-head, with public votes determining one of two artists from each team that will advance to the final eight, while the coach chooses which of the remaining three artists is saved.

In the final phase, the remaining artists (Final 8) compete against each other in live broadcasts. The television audience and the coaches have equal say 50/50 in deciding who moves on to the final 4 phase. With one artists remaining for each coach, the (final 4) artists compete against each other in the finale with the outcome decided solely by public vote.
