Three in, two out. The Voice is back for another season.
The Voice Australia, a talent show about singing that infamously said having a good voice “wasn’t enough to win”, is back in 2015. There’s only one small problem: Two coaches have been dumped.
Guys, don’t worry. Ricky Martin is coming back.
But if you were #TeamKylie or #TeamWill last season, you’re going to have to pick a new side to back this season.
Coming all the way from America, we’ve got Nicole Richie’s husband, joined by Cameron Diaz’s husband – because two people make one when it’s The Madden Brothers. And yes, they’re bringing back that horrible double chair from The Voice Kids. Apparently two minds also make one when it comes to these two.
“Double the chair, double the fun,” they said – because they can’t speak separately – in a press release. That should be enough to make you change teams.
Next we’ve got… Delta Goodrem. She was unceremoniously replaced by Kylie Minogue so The Voice could one-up The X Factor who have Dannii Minogue. But now that the star power has worn off, Delta’s allowed to come back and Kylie is “off on tour”…. Believable.
And finally, we’ve got the only team worth backing – other than #TeamRicky – led by British singer Jessie J. If you don’t know who she is, open a new tab, click ‘play’ on one of her songs and continue reading while having your life changed by her voice. Definitely not an exaggeration at all.
Jessie J was a judge on The Voice UK – the successful one – and says she’s pretty keen to be coming to Australia. “I’m so excited to get back in the red chair! I love Australia and I can’t wait to see what voices I might discover.”
We’re calling it: #TeamJessieJ is the one to watch this year.
