Don’t you love it when the public, or even the press, tries to make a meal out of something that is really just a leaf of lettuce? That is what is going on here with some recent talk regarding “The Voice” and Miley Cyrus, who is poised to be a coach on the show for the eleventh season this fall. Apparently, there are some people out there clamoring that she is somehow going to change this show and make it something that is incredibly shocking or inappropriate, something different than its status right now as a “family” show.
In response to that, the question we have for these people is this: Didn’t any of you see Howard Stern on “America’s Got Talent”? Say what you will about Cyrus, but the one thing that she has shown to be time and time again is savvy. She’s been on countless network shows and understands what her limitations are depending on her crowd. The same Miley you see on TV this September won’t be the same one you see at one of their concerts. Do you think that the other coaches never swear a day in their life?
Anyway, all of this was corroborated precisely by what NBC reality chief Paul Telegdy said recently at the Hollywood Radio and Television Society’s “State of The Industry Panel” address (per Broadcasting & Cable), stating that she will be “appropriately dressed at all times.” The only time they really have to worry about her flying off the handle is during the live shows, and she’ll even have limited screen time there since there is too much other stuff to get to.
Ultimately, if you’re really worried about this the one piece of advice we can hand down is to take a deep breath: It’s all going to be okay, and we don’t think the show will be that different.
