Talent show judges seem to be getting bigger and better as the years go on, don’t they?
The latest star to sit in a judging seat is red hot Rita Ora who has just signed on for The Voice, replacing pint sized diva Kylie Minogue. The rest of the coaches – Will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones and Kaiser Chiefs’ Ricky Wilson are all returning.
“Sir Tom Jones is our rock, Ricky is awesome and it’s our pleasure to welcome the very talented Rita Ora,” Will.i.am said. “Rita is sweet, spicy and sassy – she’s going to be a great addition to the Coaches team.”
Here, here! We have to admit that Kylie did a cracking job as a judge and really held her own against the other boys, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t excited to see Rita Ora come in and really mix things up. Between her edgy yet contemporary fashion sense and ground-breaking music, we think she might just be the best – and most relevant – judge yet!
Bring on the new series!
