Ricki-Lee is proving you can have a career in reality TV as she pops up again on The Voice soon to be seen on Channel NINE.
It was announced today in the Telegraph that the former Australia Idol contestant and co-host, will assist judge, Seal with the singers he picks. Also Darren Hayes will team up with Delta Goodrem, and Megan Washington will be a mentor with Keith Urban. Also Benji Madden will mentor with twin brother Joel.
The mentors and coaches/judges will all be releasing new recording material when the show is on air.
Ricki-Lee Coulter told the Telegraph she has the experience to help these contestants:
Coulter, whose career was given a kickstart when she contested the second season of Australian Idol in 2004, said she had the experience to give aspiring singing stars the right advice when the series begins next month.
“I have friends who have sung in my band and have now auditioned for the show – so they are going to get the shock of their lives,” Coulter said.
Coulter hasn’t met her coaching partner, Seal, yet.
“I have been doing this for eight years and I believe he wanted someone who knows everything there is about the market here,” she said.
The Voice is one of the more anticipated reality shows on to commence on TV this year. It will be shown on Channel Nine later this year.

Props to Ricki-Lee Coulter for doing a lazaurs like return to the lime light with news she has signed a huge record contract overseas.
The Daily Telegraphreports the former Australian Idol star has signed a worldwide singing contract with EMI.
RICKI-LEE Coulter was about to turn her back on her music career when an American hit-maker convinced her she had the goods to keep going.
Now the formerly independent artist has signed a worldwide deal with major label EMI and will relaunch her chart fortunes with a “world-class” pop song Raining Diamonds.
Coulter’s love affair with music began again after she emailed American producer and songwriter Billy Mann, who has penned hits for Pink, Ricky Martin, Kelly Rowland and dozens of pop stars.
Mann checked into Coulter’s background and invited her to New York to work with him and his producer protege BoyBlue.
Coulter said Raining Diamonds, one of the first songs they wrote together, is her ticket to take Australian pop to the world and demonstrate our artists can match it with the American superstars.
“I’m enjoying challenging myself,” she said. “I want to raise the bar and set a new standard for Australian pop artists. I respect Beyonce and Gaga because they push the limits and set the standard. No one in Australia really sings, dances, writes and is so entrenched in the whole music creation process. I want to up the ante and prove we can be that good as well.”
Single-minded about her return to music after stints in television and radio, Coulter said her pop career is now her priority.
“Raining Diamonds is all about knowing your value and not settling for less than what you believe you are worth,” she said.
The single is on iTunes now.
Also if you click the links to The Daily Telegraph you are able to listen to the song it is down the bottom of the article.
Good luck to her I have always been a fan.

Ricki-Lee Coulter has been one of the few Australian Idol alumni’s to have a long and diverse career after the show. However has the very spunky Ricki-Lee killed her career and potentially her endorsement deals by losing 25 kgs.
In fact the only deal she has left is with a shape wear brand.
I like Ricki-Lee so I hope she does continue her media career. Her new manager should consider trying to get her on Celebrity Apprentice which Channel Nine has confirmed they will be producing next year.

Former Australian Idol co-host Ricki-Lee Coulter has spoken out about the controversial Marie Claire cover of Jennifer Hawkins. You know the one where Jennifer was not photoshopped, but still looked flawless.
The article said:
While remaining complimentary of Hawkins, Coulter said that there was “a big divide” between the model and the average Australian woman.
“Jen looks beautiful on the cover and I applaud any woman who is appeared to appear in print without airbrushing.
But I love the photo of Bianca Dye that shows her sexy killer curves. I think a lot of women will look at her and think this is what a real woman looks like.”
Coulter also said that while being in the spotlight as a size 14 woman can be challenging, she loves her “hourglass figure”.
“I love my body because it’s what I’ve been given. Being too thin is just as unhealthy as being obese.”
And I would have to agree with her, and for the record Ricki-Lee’s photos for the Woman’s Day shoot were untouched.
