2014 will be a make-or-break year for The Voice and the BBC’s idea of boosting those ratings and turning things up a notch is by replacing Jessie J with yet another famous female face…
Kylie Minogue has been confirmed as the new coach on The Voice.
Following Jessie J’s and Danny O’Donoghue’s departure from the talent show, the BBC and the pop minx herself confirmed yesterday (September 11th) that she will be joining the panel.
“I’m very excited to become a coach on The Voice UK,” Minogue said.
“I love the concept of the show and have been an avid viewer of both series.”
She continued, “The search for new talent is such an important aspect of the music industry and The Voice UK gives us all a part to play in that. Will I be competitive? Probably more than even I imagine! Watch this space!”
Will.i.am and Tom Jones have also verified their return to the singing contest.
The rapper said,
“While I will miss Danny and Jessie, I’m excited to be returning for season three and to work with Kylie and Tom. Together we will mix it up and bring new energy and ideas to the show.”
Tom Jones added, ”I’m really looking forward to series three of The Voice UK and although I’ll miss Jessie and Danny, Kylie and the fourth coach will be a welcome addition to the line-up. She is a true pop icon and her longevity in the industry is testament to her creative and musical ability.”
BBC have reportedly moved series three of The Voice to January. This takes it away from its burdening competition with Britain’s Got Talent. The fourth coach is yet to be unveiled.
The Voice over its two-series run has received nothing but criticism. Will Kylie’s position on the panel save the show? Will she enlighten the prospect of The Voice? Because right now its got a bleak shadow cast over it what with Andrea Begley winning the previous series and not Leah McFall…
Kylie’s got a lovely personalty and her 25-years in the charts validates her greatness so she could be what the show’s been missing….
So does The Voice have a bright future what with Kylie being the third coach or is it a doomed show with no chance in hell of survival? Vote below:
