First judge is confirmed for The Voice and The Voice Kids
Singer, songwriter and producer Will.I.Am is the first judge to confirm he will coach on this year’s The Voice and The Voice Kids.
Next year’s The Voice will be broadcasting from its new home on ITV; The Voice Kids is a new series which will also begin in 2017 and will see young children compete to be crowned champion.
I’m delighted to be continuing The Voice UK on ITV and being a voice of direction and guidance for the usual suspects, and I’m thrilled to add The Voice Kids to the mix…I know The Voice switched to ITV, but I’m not going to BREXIT The Voice UK. I’m happy to make ITV my home now. I love the UK.
Whilst Emma Willis has been confirmed as the host for both shows, no other judge has been confirmed. Will.I.Am was joined on the last series of the show by Boy George, Ricky Wilson and Paloma Faith.
Auditions for the 2017 series are currently ongoing.
