Not sure if there's a topic on this already, but thought I'd get one rolling seeing as the Blind Auditions launched this week in Manchester.

As we all know, The Voice UK makes its move from the BBC to ITV in 2017 with Series 6 looking like this so far:

Presenters: Emma Willis (main show), Cel Spellman (V Room/social media)
Judges: will.i.am, Tom Jones, Jennifer Hudson, Gavin Rossdale

- As well as soloists and duos, trios are now going to be allowed to enter.
- If the judges don't press their buzzer to see the acts that they won't even get to see the acts at all (A feature I believe which has been carried over from other countries' shows).
- The winner will sign to label Polydor UK.

I've enjoyed the show since it started, but I'm hoping ITV revamp it somewhat to make it even more worth watching.

Lmao Gavin Rossdale. All he's ever done is given Gwen Stefani reason to moan about her divorce for column inches...

I think it was Sony before? Hopefully Polydor does better at marketing acts to make one of them a success rather rhan basically being a glorified entertainment karaoke show laugh.gif

I had a google of Gavin Rossdale to find out who he was and other once being with Gwen, i couldn't find much. Surely there's loads of people they could have gotten instead?

Not the best replacement for Ricky, I would have preferred someone like Dave Stewart (Eurthymics)... and Tom Jones back ohmy.gif I was getting warm towards Boy George at the end of the last series, I would actually would have loved to see Kim Wilde replacing Boy George/Tom Jones.

Jennifer Hudson is a good one, but apart from will.i.am, who#s arguable, it's a shame they haven't got anyone who's doing well in the charts today.

So the coaches are :-

An American;
Another American;
A Welsh singer who lives in the USA;
A British singer who is almost unknown in the UK, but who had some success in the US in the 1990s.

So much for The Voice UK.

Haven't bothered with this for a few years now seeing as though the BBC didn't invest/gave zero f***s about their winners. Hopefully ITV will and I'm loving the new judging panel biggrin.gif

Gavin Rossdale is definitely a pisstake, Bush had one top 10 in the 90s and their last album didn't chart at all... I mean surely it's a tad awkward if the winner outpeaked most of Bush's singles? And I can't see any of the acts really going "OH MY GOD GAVIN HAS TO BE MY MENTOR" either laugh.gif For the first series off the back of a really hyped move, they could have at least got someone who was big in the 90s or 00s, ideally someone who is big now but someone who was never big in the first place is a bit shit :/

Yeah Gavin Rossdale is such a ridiculous choice. I'm glad they chose Jennifer Hudson though, she will be brilliant! I really thought they'd try to get Rita back and have two females or at least gone with Tom Odell who was rumoured not long ago.

I think only Willy Moon and Natalia Kills are more embarrassing picks for a TV show judging panel than Gavin Rossdale. They could literally have a potato as a judge and it would generate the same initial pre-show viewer interest as him and I doubt he's got an amazing personality that would make him a talking point when the show actually airs.

There's surely hundreds of acts who are both more successful than him and more entertaining that would be willing to do it? I'm really confused about how he got the job and who thought it was a good idea.

Even if he does prove to have an amazing personality, it will be too late for the blind auditions.

It sometimes seemed as if a lot of the contestants in the last series didn't pick Boy George because they didn't know who he was. At least that gereally only applied to the younger contestants. There is no generation for whom Gavin Wotsisname is a big name. Even people who vaguely remember Bush as a much-hyped act who were only successful in the USA probably couldn't name a single member. Come to that, I doubt many could name any of their songs.

Will.i.am, the return of Tom Jones and the addition of Jennifer Hudson seem like they work together and Jennifer is a great addition. It's a shame Ricky or Paloma didn't stay, would of worked far better as a more interesting set of Judges. I've never even heard of Gavin whatever his name is and by that trailer, he doesn't make me want to. Happy Emma is still presenting but I hope this series isn't a snooze fest like it's past season, I never seem to make it past the blind auditions.
