On Saturday, January 10, the latest season of “The Voice” UK is going to be premiering on BBC One, but we have the first photo today featuring the entire coaching panel for this year!
So what is different this time around? It really is as simple as swapping out Kylie Minogue for Rita Ora. The good news for the show with this change is that Rita is extremely current, and could draw in some of the younger voice. (We don’t entirely get covering her face in the promotional photo, though.)
As for what we would be a little more worried about right now, it is as simple as that Kylie undoubtedly had generations of fans, and Ora by comparison is relatively new to the business still. We know she’s been around for a little while, but still.
Regardless, the biggest problem with this show is that it has not shown itself to be anything other than a television show. There have been zero stars produced through the show so far, and we also have not felt like the right person won during any of the seasons that have been on so far. Will.i.am is the reigning champ among the coaches; Tom Jones won the first season, and they are the only two active winners on the panel.
Could this be Ricky Wilson or Rita’s year? It’s possible, but what we are more curious about here is first and foremost whether or not there are any good contestants still out there in the United Kingdom. Also, we wonder if the show will actually do more to help them after the fact.
