This franchise has moved to the newer format of The Cut which simply does what it means to cut a coach’s team in half. Brutal, but this is close to real-life auditions made in many venues. Messy yes, expect many tears and frustration to surface.
starts with exciting episodes of Voice Matters! The competition progresses to a new stage in The Cut, where each coach drops three singers from his team, while some get into duels along the passing lane.
In duels, there will again be hijackings of new teams and only half will make it to the Knockout stage. In the four live broadcasts in the spring, you will be able to see which of the 12 contestants will sing their way to the victory of The Voice of Finland!

Here is the latest round of performances released today.
Lilja Stahlberg – Writing’s On The Wall
Bad song choices from Anna yes, this one is good but didn’t make it to the sequel
Alina Kolehmainen – Fly Away
I cannot, for the life of me, understand how THIS got to the finals and Janika Rissanen was left out. Unbelievable. This was absolutely [a bad adjective], through and through. Janika was brilliant.pundewhee
Eemeli Nissi Siks Kai Ma Oon Sun
The guy capped the atmosphere, like we sometimes used to secrets a treehouse by candlelight or nowadays some of our first crush with a cell phone backlight. The moment is like a disney movie happily ever after where everyone’s favorite person walks into the scene at the end, saying just the right words for what each person’s longing needs.Jarkko Markus
Ianika Rissanen – Still Loving You
Janika and Antti were the best of the evening. Sound, interpretation, stage presence.. Both have the whole package in a pile. Alina shouldn’t have gone on.

Mona Savojifar – my future

Song 2 – Elsa Rusi VS. Mikael Arvaja | Kaksintaistelu | The Voice of Finland 2023
Full points to both acts for the extraordinary enthusiasm for this performance from start to finish. Some of the lyrics were shouts for the rendition everything was loud for this! Nevertheless, rock on Finland! No winner is known.
Ain’t No Mountain High Enough – Mona Savojifar VS. Kenni Ta | Kaksintaistelu | The Voice of Finland
Team Anna on show this battle. Youthful ness hits this old classic, with a good effort from both. I felt Mona had a stronger vocal and did more with her solos than Kenni. No winner is known.
Cover Me In Sunshine – Daisy Bolt | Kaksintaistelu | The Voice of Finland 2023
Team Anna. Watch this performance and enjoy the rendition. I can speculate why she sang solo but maybe a viewer can confirm the reason.
Daisy’s couple reportedly fell ill and were not allowed to sing according to one YT post. It is safe to say she won!
Nämä ajat eivät ole meitä varten – Aku Keinonen VS. Otto Ikonen | Kaksintaistelu | TVOF 2023
Team E. The opening harmonies were something special to hear. Their individual solos were flatter and less energetic then back came the enthusiastic climax. No winner is known.
Pikkuveli – Eerika Häggqvist VS. Aino Norrintytär | Kaksintaistelu | The Voice of Finland 2023
Team Toni and Sige. A native language performance and neither outshined the other. A draw.
Sata salamaa – Sirpa Sola VS. Marjo Eriksson | Kaksintaistelu | The Voice of Finland 2023
Team Maija. Another native language performance with many good harmonies and enthusiasm made up for vocal control at some points. No winner is known.
New This Week 6
Highlights for me were Tino and Arto giving their 100 percent effort on stage! Opposites in many aspects make for fascinating television at the moment.
Honourable mentions Emmi, Erika, and Kirsi. Unfortunately, no results had been posted on the source at this moment. Follow along with us to see where the journey takes us all.
Linnea Hirvensalo vs Liro Hynninen
Team Toni and Sipe. This performance was in the native language with both competently covering the notes successfully. The tone for me was with the male performer. The result is not known.
Emmi Saunders vs Aini Vehvilainen
Team Maiji presented two young females in this classic anthem by Gwen Stefani. For me, Emmi won due to her full-on breathing and ability to cover all the notes. May be nerves from Aini. I could be wrong about who Maiji chose. No result at this time. Congratulations to both acts.
Erika Nystrom vs Timmy Tattari
Team Elastinen. She outshined him nearly all the way in this battle. He was flat and off the rhythm for me. No result is known.
Kirsi Mantysaari vs Alina Kolehmainen
Team Anna. Another native language song for the audience in this battle with Kirisi opening the song. Alina responded with good vocals and it was a true dual for both back and forth until Kirsi went with the vocal growls with extra enthusiasm that drew me into her. Result unknown.
Tino Portno vs Arto Pesonen
Team Maiji. Arto opened with his low registry vocals into this battle with Tino responding. in his middle registry. This was a fight of the epic vocals in so many different ways, the stand out was the total high energy both acts gave to the song performance. WOW! Congratulations to both.
Lilja Stahlberg vs Sara Paakkari
Team Elastisen. This has to be one of the hardest songs to vocally cover anywhere on the planet. Full credit to both Lilia and Sara, it overall was both playing it safe, and the harmony parts were good, yet the solos were left wanting or absent standout points. In other words very close to one another matching each other. Maybe Lilja? The result is not known.
Heikki Poyhia v Marju Kauppinen
Sweet Child of Mine was on the table and both went after the battle with full vocals. This was a very close differentiation between the two. In other words very hard to call. Both were winners. Result
Dani Hyytianinen vs Velo-Pekka Vaari
Team Maija. I felt this was the wrong key for both of them, maybe an octave lower. To pitchy and breathy for my taste.
Sara Mannisto vs Nella Kontiainen
Native language vocal in this battle. Team Elastinen. The presentation was a well-balanced vocal and musical level for all of us to enjoy as these equally talented battled it out. Result
Eemeli Nissi vs Kati Saarilampi
Team Anna presented this native language vocal. I enjoyed the harmonies and solo parts of this performance. Another hard one to call. Result.
Pinja-Riikka Karvonen vs Rela Ware
Team Maija. This battle was closer as they progressed, as their vocals opened and relaxed for me. Result.
Julia Suursalmi vs Elisa Kosta
Team Elastinen. Almost perfect harmonies are presented by both acts in this battle. I hope both moved on! Best battle of the night! Result.

Week 6 Auditions
Highlights include Timmy moving all four chairs this week. Emmi Saunders was another highlight of this episode. Bravo to Marju for persevering with the audition in the end.
Timmy Tattari Elastic Heart
Two coaches turned for his unique vocal, then 3, his voice cracked in to move the 4th coach chair! A very good audition from Timmy.
Marju Kauppinen Sing For Absolution
She sang flat on many of the opening vocals or something that caused her to do so. In the second half, the upper range was stronger and rewarded with two chairs. Happy she kept going and backed herself.
Emmi Saunders The One That Got Away
Her vocals were strong from the opening, rich in tone, and has the skills and experience to be successful this season. Block. I hate the block, tell me how is it positive for the contestant aka artist?
Good luck Emmi will follow your journey this season.
Rina Januzi I’d Rather Go Blind
Rina took control of this performance from the opening with a strong vocal and growl. Two coaches moved for her. Well done Rina. Good luck with the show.
Katrina Masalin Anteeks
A native language song was performed in her audition. Two coaches turned for Katrina with this strong vocal for the viewers and coaches. Good luck Katrina.
Week 5 Auditions and Part 2
Highlights this week include Sara and Matt with four chairs in 35 seconds and three chairs in the final seconds of their respective auditions. Follow Sara on her journey. Repeat her audition below.
The second highlight was Elisa Kota below!
Elisa Kota My Mind
by 18 seconds all 4 coaches had turned for her vocals in this well-controlled and executed audition. She is one to watch this season. The boys were blocked and the nonsense continues in the franchises all over the world. Why deny the auditioner an opportunity?
Tino Portnoj Lost Boy
Another ballad for the coaches, his vocals were clean and crisp for most of the audition with only one chair turn.
Mikko Kesaniemi Thank You for the Demon
His rock vocal-orientated song was solid loud and powerful. One chair turns to watch.
Reeta Rinkkala Before The Dawn
Another ballad vocal with her rich soft tone, three chair avalanche happened at the climax. Watch.
Tiia Vento Ma mietin sua
Her ballad soft vocals won an early turn and the others remained turned away.
Kati Saarilampi Almaz, onnen lapsi
A native language ballad vocal from her was worthy of two female coach turns.
Otto Ikonen Missa koti on
Native language vocal was a little flat at times and still won a coach turn.
Mona Savojifar – You Don’t Own Me
This was a full vocal sexy arrangement to draw everyone in including the coaches. It was not perfect, breathing, flat on some notes, but she gave it all. Three coaches turned and that is impressive. Good luck Mona.
Sirpa Sola Paivani ilman sinua
A native language rendition audition from her with her vocals on key. One turn.
Matti Halmetvaara Pettavalla jaalla
Another native song from this auditioner with vocals to draw you in. A surprise reaction from Matt ends this good audition. Three coaches all turned at the end! Congratulations!
Mohamad Maksouma Ya saek el hegen
Another native audition who draws two sets of coaches immediately! WOW Strong vocals, well done.
Elena Chalova Piece of My Heart
This classic rock audition highlighted the strength of her powerful vocals. She deserved more than one chair for that rendition. Well done Elena.
Tuomo Saarenpaa Fool For You Loving
Another rock anthem from this auditioner and strong vocals. One more turn for Tuomo. Well done.
Sara Paakkari Wicked Game
The Cello arrangement just draws everyone into this audition followed by the sold clear vocals from within her presence. All coaches turned within 35 seconds of the start. Clearly, Sara ticks all the boxes and has to be a real threat to win. Congratulations Sara! Follow her on this journey.
Week 4 Auditions Parts 1 and 2
Sara Mannisto – Majakanvartijat
Kirisi Mantysaari – Puhun pienilla kirjaimilla
Marjo Eriksson – Poika
Kelly Koger – Bound To You
Santeri Kotamaki – Hysteria
Rela Ware – Dinosauruksii
Ben Borges – This Love audition
Ben Borges, 32, Helsingistä esittää The Voice of Finlandin 12.
Four chairs awaited Ben for this rendition of the song “This Love”. Plenty of grit and rhythm in this audition for him to have the choice of four/five coaches. At his age all signs point to his experience and control showcased tonight. Watch his journey. Good luck Ben.
Aini Vehvilainen – Seventeen audition
Aini Vehviläinen, 21, Helsingistä esittää The Voice of Finlandin 12. The band was very loud in the production which overpowered her unique vocals. If you listen carefully you will hear her move her range quickly. It was far from perfect, yet intriguing winning one coach to turn.
Eemeli Nissi – Hallla ja etelauuili audition
Eemeli Nissi, 27, Joensuusta esittää The Voice of Finlandin 12. Three chairs all turn by 20 seconds, including the dreaded block for this native language rendition. The fourth coach turned for this audition by 48 seconds approximately. Strong controlled vocal and checks most of the boxes indeed.
Enni Hakala – Warum audition
Enni Hakala, 45, Valkeakoskelta esittää The Voice of Finlandin 12. This operatic performance attracted some surprised facial expressions on the faces of coaches. I assume she has been performing in the genre for a while and this rendition was not flawless but good enough for the two coaches to turn. Opera is a wonderful genre and deserves a place in this competition.
Antti Alatormanen – Roxanne audition
Antti Alatörmänen, 37, Tepastosta esittää The Voice of Finlandin 12. Auditioned with this anthem classic and seemed a little behind the band at some point, to nerves may be or technical issues.
Again the band was loud in this rendered version, which was distracting to the vocals. And right in the queue one coach turned at the end. Congratulations Antti you got through that overproduced music mash.
Week 3 Auditions
Hetken tie on kevty – Eerika Haggqvist auditioned with this ballad, Maija turned, two-seater joined her. Controlled, a mix of vocals, appealing, and received two turns.
Tummilla teilla – Iiro Hynninen auditioned and turned all four chairs!
Killing Me Softly With His Song – Nella Kontianen auditioned with this classic two-chair turn with a loud squeal from Nella! and all four turned for this exciting rendition.
Bella Ciao – Mikko Tormala auditioned with this classic to engage the panel, audience, and guests.
7 Years Daisy Bolt
auditioned with this recent hit, she had the vocals to carry it, into the chorus, and broke down when one coach turned. Congrats to Daisy and the coach.
The best audition was Linnea who received four chairs – yet the block play robs an act of the chance to work with a coach of their choice!
Break My Heart Again Linnea Hirvensalo auditioned with this ballad and the boys blocked one coach…four chair turn and she deserved the opportunity to select the other coach. Hate the block. It needs to go! It does not help the contestant, it limits opportunities and is easily forgotten by the audience a week later. No more blocks, please.
Million Years Ago – Sofia Suuronen auditioned and received one chair turn in the clip. Plenty of raw vocals and work to do.
Mustarastas laulaa – Sini -Mia Poikkimaki audition with a strong rich vocal with only one chair turn.
The Winner Takes It All – Sarlotta Soininen showcased her range with this classic Abba song, with three chair turns and one holdout. Should have been four chairs from me. Well done.
Kurjuuden kuningas Petri Tulppo ballad guitar audition received one chair within 10 seconds, well-controlled vocals and played.
Don’t Stop Me Now Mikael Arvaja audition was full of energy and vocals appealed to two coach turns.
Helvegen – Aino Norrintytär | Ääni ratkaisee enjoys her performance internally, then at the end of her audition, things suddenly change from no chairs, to a coach chair turns. Look at her excitement and relief has to be one of the best reactions! A very purposeful and heartwarming result!
Week 2 Auditions
The Highlights this week were Jami, Heikki, Selma, and Janika all attracted big reactions from me. You may have a different opinion and you are invited to add them in the comments.
Heikki Poyhia with “From Out of Nowhere” Blind auditioned with a heavy metal solo turned all the coaches and left the stage with nothing in the gas tank.
Janika Rissanen sang “One and Only” in rich tones, fueled by a powerful voice, on point strong well-controlled audition with all four chairs turning! Congratulations Janika!
Lilja Stahlerg sang “Easy On Me” 18, Kuopiosta hit the notes in this soft rendition of the song. It was good enough to turn two coaches.
Emil Pohjanen sang Tylevaisuuteen attracted three chairs with this lively somewhat monotone rendition.
More Than Words sung by Jami Kontturi check all the boxes for this audition, voice, tone, control, engagement, and rhythm, and is rewarded with all four chairs turned. I want to hear more, please. Good luck Jami!
Leendalie Light sang Sous le Vent
A controlled yet sometimes pitchy audition, that turned two coaches. Well done.
Someone Like You – Selma Lepistö | Ääni ratkaisee She auditioned at 17, Porvoosta esittää, and won four chairs. A sweet tone and range now have the opportunity to advance and learn. Well done Selma.
Veli-Pekka Vaari, 28, Helsingistä esittää The Voice of Finlandin 12 full-on rock with three chair turns.
Dani Hyytiäinen, 33, Jönköpingistä esittää moved both female coaches with this rendition.
Julia Suursalmi, 24, Kuopiosta esittää earned a one-chair turn for this rendition
Kenni Ta, 24, Vaasasta esittää and you have to wait until the last second to see who turned. He has a good voice but sounded nasally on my side.
Kiia Purontaka, 30, Kokkolasta two chairs early for this rendition.
Earlier week 1
Alina Kolehmainen “Million Dollar Man” audition attracted the four coaches with this rendition.
Arto Pesonen Blaablaa (En kuule sanaakaan) audition, he opened his lungs and blew the second part of this song for one turn from a coach!

Simeoni Julkunen “I’m With You” auditioned for a contemporary song choice playing his guitar and turned one coach.
Pinja Riikka Karvonen “Hard Place” Audition nerves and some breathing issues at the front end, growing into the audition in the second half. Another one-chair turn!
Aku Keinonen “Vincent” Audition a classic song choice, blocked coach, and four chair turns had the coaches from the beginning on point throughout the audition.
