Season Six of the award-winning entertainment blockbuster is back, with one of the biggest coaching lineups in Voice history.
Kelly Rowland and Boy George join previous champions of the big red chair, internationally renowned singing sensation Seal and Australia’s sweetheart and reigning champion Delta Goodrem, as Coaches to bring Australia the most exciting season of The Voice yet.
This season The Voice producers have mounted the biggest talent search in the show’s history, reaching into the farthest corners of Australia. Thousands of people from all walks and stages of life auditioned before the list was cut to the lucky 100 who made it to the Blind Auditions.
MEET THE COACHES
Five-time Grammy Award winner & multi-platinum-selling artist Kelly Rowland will join the lineup of megastars coming to The Voice in
2017. As a member of Destiny’s Child, one of the best-selling groups of all time, Kelly Rowland has been honoured with five Grammy Awards, 16 Billboard
Music Awards, 15 Soul Train Awards, four American Music Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards, a BRIT Award and a Star on the “Hollywood Walk of Fame”.
“I am so excited for Australia to see this series of The Voice. I have had such a great time working with Seal, George and the beautiful Delta,
and we have experienced some really special moments,” Kelly said.
Throughout her solo career Rowland has also enjoyed global success, releasing the Grammy Award-winning hit Dilemma featuring Nelly, Like This featuring Eve, Breathe Gentle featuring Tiziana Ferro, and the worldwide smash When Love Takes Over, featuring David Guetta. “I’ve
been a fan of The Voice for years and I’m super excited to join the family, especially in Australia. It’s going to be an amazing experience
and I can’t wait for this season to begin,” Rowland said.
Boy George, universally acclaimed as one of the most influential artists in music, is joining The Voice Australia in 2017. A vocalist, producer, author, DJ and frontman of hit group Culture Club, Boy George will join The Voice as a Coach on season six of Australia’s Logie Award-winning, most outstanding entertainment program.
Boy George’s career spans more than 30 years, accumulating worldwide sales in excess of 150 million albums and singles, both as a singer and songwriter with Culture Club and as a solo artist in his own right. The Grammy Award nominee has created a worldwide presence that transcends age, race, colour, nationality and even religion. Touring the globe extensively throughout his career, Boy George recently played a string of sellout shows in Australia with Culture Club, and to keep up with demand he has returned to our shores for another national tour, cementing his popularity down under.
“I am super excited to be doing The Voice in Australia, because I know they can take a bit of banter and I won’t be holding back. The UK season was a warm-up and I am ready to sprinkle some pop-tastic glitter dust all over the show,” Boy George said. Boy George is no stranger to The Voice, having occupied a red chair in season five of the UK version alongside fellow Coaches Will.i.am, Paloma Faith and Ricky Wilson.
Delta has had a blockbuster year, releasing her fifth studio album, Wings of the Wild, which debuted at No.1 on the iTunes and national ARIA charts, with the album peaking within the top five spot in five countries and the top 20 in another nine countries. Delta is currently playing to sold-out arenas across Australia on her Wings of the Wild tour.
Returning for her sixth series after leading Alfie Arcuri to victory on The Voice 2016. Delta said: “I can’t wait to be back with my Voice family for season six. It’s always been such a passion of mine to find and nurture Australian talent on the platform this incredible show provides. A huge welcome back to my friend Seal. Here’s to a great season.”
He has sold over 30 million records, won four Grammys, three Brit Awards – and in 2017, music superstar Seal will return to Australia to defend his title of the most successful Coach on The Voice. After guiding 2012 and 2013 winners Karise Eden and Harrison Craig to victory, Seal will be back for season six of The Voice with his sights set on unearthing Australia’s next vocal star. “I cannot wait to return to The Voice to claim back my title. I am hugely looking forward to finding some new Australian talent. Bring on 2017!” said Seal.
The Voice Australia, hosted by Sonia Kruger, will return to Channel Nine in 2017. The Voice is produced by ITV Australia on behalf of Channel Nine.
