I am obsessed with E! news, it takes over my Sky+ and I have the biggest girl crush on Catt Sadler. So thanks to daily watching due to unemployment last year, I discovered The Voice, America’s talent show where it is all about, you guessed it, the voice! If you haven’t seen it (where have you been?) hopefuls take to the stage and sing their hearts out, hoping for one of the judges to turn their chair around (judges can’t see the singers at first as this is a talent show not based on appearance). It proved such a success in the States that the BBC fixed up and bought the rights to make an English version, YAY!!
I think The Voice is amazing, it’s refreshing to have really good singers on a show and not ones that are there just because they provide good entertainment (Jedward anyone?). Taking on the judging role for us is the legend that is Tom Jones, Jessie J, Will.i.am and Danny O’Donoghue. An interesting mix, personally I don’t see why Will.i.am is a judge. Yes he writes good tunes and knows the right people but he’s a bit too friendly with auto-tune for my liking. I wonder if he even knows how to do an inflection or trill. Danny (The Script) has had many people talking wondering why he was chosen. I think he’s a good choice, he has a beautiful voice and has written some of my favourite songs. I have every faith that he will turn people’s opinions around once the show starts.
I will most certainly be watching when it comes to our TV screens March 24. It has a lot of hype to live up too and I do hope it doesn’t disappoint.
