The Voice Australia – filming begins!
Nine’s new singing comp The Voice Australia has begun filming at Fox Studios in Sydney this week, but there have been claims that audience members are being turned away because of a ticket stuff-up.
As Daily Telegraph reported:
Our phones rang hot with some claiming more than 200 weren’t allowed into one session of the Nine singing search, but booking agent Applause Store insisted ticket holders were told it was “first come, first served.
With the blind auditions starting this week, the news of judge Delta Goodrem’s breakup with American teen star Nick Jonas has hit the papers today with her manager confirming the split. Now, we don’t know exactly when the pair parted ways, reportedly due to their separate careers, but the news has certainly come out at the right time with the start of filming this week. While the open auditions for a rival singing search commences next month, The Voice Australia definitely has enough momentum for a big launch in April.
I’m very interested to see newcomers Seal and Keith Urban on the judging panel alongside Joel Madden and Delta Goodrem. Both Joel and Delta have appeared on Australian Idol as guest judges in the past and with Joel even appeared on The X Factor Australia as a mentor during the overseas week.
