Start growing back those '80s mullets.

I'm sure TEN will be trying to secure him for a judge or mentor role.

Story in the Daily Tele. The judges will have their backs to the singers and judge only on their voice, not on looks.

Not suprised if this is true. This show has been huge in the US. It is the number 2 show on the air behind idol in 18-49 (which is the only figures that are counted in the US) and it airs 10pm tuesdays on NBC. It was number 4 or 5 in total people as well. Though I think Ten would have to get some big name judges, the US version has Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine (Maroon 5). This show has the potentail to be huge for ten in there key demo and it has a slight wow factor that idol and xfactor dont, the best pure signers get through cos the judges cant see them (in the audtion stages). Dicko would definately be on tens list. Darren Hayes, Delta Goodrem, Tina Arena have all done great jobs on idol as guest judges and Vanessa Amarosi was good on popstars. The other 2 awesome guest stars that idol had (brian and guy) are now on seven so they are out. Maybe Ten can try snare Nat Imbuglia after she left Xfactor. Would love to see Dillon Lewis and Ruby Rose host

Awesome news. Success will depend on right mix of judges though. Now they just need to announce the return of big brother and I will be a happy camper!!!!
Looking forward to Oh Six!

Wouldn't TEN's dream come true be John Farnham? THE Voice?

These types of shows really rely on the credibility of the competition. Like Idol Season 1 and Masterchef, if TEN/Shine can manage to recruit really credible judges and deliver a credible prize (not just money but real-world gigs like supporting a world-class act or even a major John Farhnam tour etc), and wrap it all up in heart, it will deliver.

Some background:

So is American Idol, it doesn't however always translate to success here.

At least Ten have had the foresight to try something new here and be active in the market for new programming. Where is Nine in all of this? They have nothing new coming and are not actively pursing anything of value to build a schedule around.

At least this show sounds better than that Don't Stop Believin bullshit ten tried to get off the ground.

Heres the format breakdown:

The series consists of three phases: a blind audition, a battle phase, and live performance shows. Four judges/coaches, all famous musicians, will choose teams of contestants through a blind audition process. Each judge has the length of the auditioner's performance (about one minute) to decide if he or she wants that singer on his or her team; if two or more judges want the same singer (as happened with all but one singer in the premiere episode), then the singer gets the final choice of coach.

Each team of singers will be mentored and developed by their coach. In the second stage, coaches will have two of their team members battle against each other by singing the same song, with the coach choosing which team member to advance. In the final phase, the remaining contestants will compete against each other in live broadcasts. The television audience will help to decide who moves on. When one team member remains for each coach, the contestants will compete against each other in the finale.



So there the obvious singing competition element, judges become coaches which is ripped straight from X Factor but with the twist being "blind" auditions and battles within each team.I don't know exactly how new and exciting that is since the main point of difference wraps up when auditions are over. Then it becomes another singing contest.

It has done well in the US but they have really only had American Idol. More recently we have has The X Factor and a Idol franchise put out of its misery. Seems like a risk but could pay off big time if they get it right.

This will be a great pick up for Ten if it is confirmed. How will it fit into Ten's schedule assuming the 7.30pm line-up does not change (The Biggest Loser Families on Sundays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays; Glee on Mondays and Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation on Tuesdays)? Can it be a 8.30pm or 9.30pm show?

What if they went the way of NBC and had it later on in the evening ?? Alternatively performance show Monday through to 9:30 (I dont think Ten should stretch it out for 2.5 hrs like Seven.)

The Voice might end up the same way as that did. :tongue:
