In the next season of The Voice UK the show will be so much diffrent to the last series.
Jessie J one of the judges on the show has annouced that she is leaving and now we are hearing that Tom Jones Might go too.
Tom Jones might follow!
Back in June we heard Jessie got a nice
little big bonus to siup for the second season of the reality competition, but now she reportedly quit because of a scheduling conflict with her upcoming tour.
While that’s the official explanation, insiders say she simply angered executives with diva-esque behavior which included a refusal to do publicity along with toting around a hefty entourage.
Sir Tom Jones may be following suit as sources are also reporting that his manager is advising against taking part in another season. Here is what the winning mentor from last season had to say on a talk show recently:
“I think I will do another series. We are talking about it now. But there are a couple of things that need to be ironed out. One of the things I said I need to know is who the other coaches are, because I don’t want to be sitting there with somebody that I don’t admire or particularly like… there are a few of them! Hopefully, we will have the same four coaches.”
We still do not know whats going to happen with other judges wil.i.am and Danny O’Donoghue!
Its the talent show that searches for a new singing star but it seems there has already been one winner of The Voice: record label Universal, which stands to make huge sums at licence fee-payers’ expense.
Three of the shows ‘coaches’ are signed to Universal, and have seen album sales rocket as a result of the exposure on primetime TV.
The company is said to make millions and whoever wins the show, get £100,000 and a record deal with Universal Music Group.
But the losers don’t miss out as they will be signed to Universal-owned management firm Twenty First Artists.
Yesterday a MP attacked the BBC for spending £22million of licence fee-payers money to secure the rights to The Voice, which he described as nothing more than an ‘expensive advert’ for Universal.
Philip Davies MP Said:
‘The BBC has paid a fortune for The Voice. This now looks to be a very expensive advert for the record company which not only gets a heavily promoted winner but also a boost for its existing artists on the show.
‘The BBC also appears to be using this format as a spoiler to sabotage ITV’s success with Britain’s Got Talent. On both of these counts I don’t think this is what the BBC should be doing.’
The ‘coaches’ of the show are Jessie J, Sir Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Danny O’Donoghue who play are good at their job on the show.
It is estimated the coaches are seen on screen for two-thirds of each 75-minute audition episode – the equivalent time in advertising on ITV would cost £5.9million.
