Now that the third season of “The Voice” UK has wrapped up, it is time for what has become a frequent tradition: Sitting around and debating whether or not the on-air talent is going to return. Giving that this show has already went through multiple coaches and hosts, it is a fair assumption that some more change could occur.
For the time being, though, the coaches are staying quiet … though Ricky Wilson told The Sun that the producers would be “idiots” to change up the panel now. Ratings wise, the show was down around 600,000 viewers from one year to the next, but 6.6 million viewers is still a decent number for British television. There’s no real concern about whether or not the show will return, but people like Kylie Minogue and will.i.am have a flurry of other job opportunities out there that they can take advantage of.
Personally, we feel like it is very likely that the entire group will be back, mostly because this is a sweet gig for all of them to have. You can film a ton of the blind auditions in just a couple of weeks, and the only dates that you really cannot be flexible with are the lives … and with “The Voice” UK, there are only a few of those a year. Given the money and the extra promotion that this provides, it’s a job that even surpasses “The X Factor,” which forces you to travel and be available significantly more thanks to its live results shows.
