Report: Seal, Keith Urban, Joel Madden Joining ‘The Voice Australia’
Keith Urban, Joel Madden, Seal, and Australian pop star Delta Goodrem are rumored to be among the judges on Oz’s upcoming version of The Voice.
The American version of The Voice premiered on NBC earlier this year, but if you missed it, the show basically puts a spin on the traditional “singing competition” format: The judges choose the singers in blind auditions, without seeing what they look like.
The judges’ teams then go head-to-head, X Factor-style, till a winner is decided. Charttoppers Christina Aguilera, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, country music singer Blake Shelton, and Cee Lo Green judge the series Stateside. Lenny Kravitz is being courted to star in a British adaptation of the talent show.
No one’s signed any contracts yet, but word is Black Eyed Peas member Will.i.am is also in talks to be a judge.
The Australian version of The Voice will premiere on the Nine Network in early 2012.
