The first season averaged an impressive 4.1 million viewers and a 19% share, scoring +13% above channel average. The Voice Senior was the most viewed show each week. 

In Belgium the show was leader in all targets every week, making it the best scoring show for four weeks straight in the Friday prime time slot. The series averaged 1,175,900 viewers and a 39.6% market share for the key demo, +61.6% above the slot average of VTM.  Also in Spain, where the second season is currently on air on Antena 3, the talent show is reaching new heights.
