The Voice – Will The Producers Also Be Blindfolded?
Channel 9 and Shine Australia have the rights for the new hit reality show The Voice. The concept is a singing show where the judges are blindfolded so they are judging on the singing voice alone, looks and personality don’t come into it.
The show which was created by Endermol, the creators of Big Brother. The US version which has Christine Aguilera in it has been huge in a crowded talent show market.
According to the Sunday Telegraph they are currently trying to sign a big overseas name for the show. Names mentioned have been George Michael, Pink, and Christine Aguilera. It is on the TV schedule for 2012. Also no news on who will host the show. The hosting and judge positions will be highly coveted.
I love the concept, but one thing I would like to know is will the producers be blindfolded as well?
With all these big shows there are preliminary auditions where the huge numbers who turn up sing for the producers or talent scouts. They then put people through to audition for the judges at a later date.
Will they have their eyes covered or will they be seeing what the singers look like and will this influence who they put through. Personally I think for the integrity of the show they should be.
Also who do you think should be the judges and host of the show?
