    We need a new thread for the new series due to start in a months time if only to get rid of the silly title for the thread for the last series. This is from DigitalSpy.

    The Voice UK has confirmed details of its new format for series two.

    The BBC talent contest - which again features will.i.am, Jessie J, Sir Tom Jones and Danny O'Donoghue as coaches - has introduced a 'steal' twist to the battle rounds and a new 'knockout' stage prior to the live shows.

    The 'steal' will give judges the option to recruit losers of the head-to-head battles to their teams after being snubbed by the coach they sided with in the blind auditions.

    Following each battle round, the losing act will be given the chance to pitch to the coaches why they deserve to stay in the competition. Coaches will then have an allotted period of time to decide whether to press the buttons on their spinning red chairs and 'steal' the singer.

    As with the blind auditions, if more than one coach attempts to 'steal', the power will shift back to the artist to decide whose team they want to join.

    Each coach can only steal one artist during the entirety of the battle rounds, meaning they will have to choose wisely.

    The coaches will then head into the 'knockout' stage with seven team members each - the six winners of the battles between the 12 they recruited at the blind auditions, plus their one stolen contestant.

    In this round, artists will perform a 'killer song' of their choosing and the coaches will each pick three members of their team to go through to the live shows, creating a final 12 for the public vote.

    The Voice UK is expected to launch on BBC One in mid-March, with Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates returning as hosts.

    It all seems to be panning out as I predicted with Leanne's album being launched to coincide with the start of the new series.

    Yes, you do!

    Why silly?
    Because it doesn't agree with your rose tinted view of all things Cohen?

    I makes me weep everytime the originl thread appears on the front page, to see my name attached to this appallng waste of a huge amount of money.

    Thanks for that.

    NO, NO, NO!!! I like Danny apart from when he jumps up and down like a hysterical schoolgirl. But I can't bear to listen to Tom Jones. He doesn't have anything constructive to say in a cohesive sentence. He just repeats the same old, same old every time. I for one won't be watching this series. Life is just too short.......

    You can't have better publicity than winning The Voice. Any publicity generated by a single would be superfluous. No Leanne's album will coincide with the second series of The Voice and I suspect singles will be released then.

    The start date for The Voice series 2 is rumoured to be Easter Saturday 30th March. Coincidentally this is the start date for the resumption of the current Dr Who season and this will presumably precede The Voice which no doubt will help the latter's audience figures.

    Justice has nothing to do with it, it is whether people watch it. There were big audiences for the chair spinning stages last year and there are more of them this year plus a few tweaks to pique people's interest. If there is a third series don't blame the BBC blame the viewing public.

    Does anyone know who the judges will be this year?
    The "coming soon" ads are appearing showing Tom Jones and Danny ??, will it be the same judges
    Thinking about the judges and who they are, Can anyone actually remember who won the competition last year? It made such an impression on me, I recon that was £20million well spent. It could have been spent on either actually entertaining us the public or going towards the chairman's bonus for this year. What a waste.
    These types of show appear to produce very little output in terms of music to listen to. Did the winner actually release anything ? I can't say I have seen much from last Years x-factor winner either ( not that I would be any)

    As you say doesn't appear good value for money. 

    Leanne Mitchell is releasing her second single soon and an album to coincide with the start of the second series.

    While I enjoyed the 'turning around in chairs bit', the rest of the series was just boring, the rest of it was the same old recognised format from every talent show on TV.

    I think the BBC commissioned/bought this series when the X-Factor seemed to be pulling in so many viewers, and their hope was obviously to do the same.

    However, looking now at how the X-Factor was haemorrhaging viewers week by week in the last series, it doesn't look like they made a good choice, as viewers seem bored by the whole 'let's find, a make a global pop star' story.
    Plus, and being brutally honest here, their winner, though a very talented girl for sure, was very unlikely ever to become a huge star.

    It is a very expensive show to produce, so very little value for licence payers there at all.
    I can't believe that the BBC gave up much of Formula 1 to help pay for this. Yes, another debate altogether......smiley - winkeye

    I would much prefer a good drama series to be screened on a Saturday night, although I do believe there is a new fantasy series due to be screened at some time in the future?
    I'll keep my fingers crossed that it's a winner.

    The problem with movies on TV at a set time is that you have to watch what the broadcasters decide which may not be to your taste. These days it is easy with DVDs to make your own choices something that was not possible in the past.

    You may be right, time will tell, but you are ignoring the fact that the ratings were very high during the spinning chairs phase and only went down in the live phase. Guess what, this year there are more spinning chairs and a shorter live phase.

    There is only one judge on the whole panel worth listening to with regards to singing in this program the voice, and that is tom jones.
    The man has done it all just about and has experience, along with a fantastic voice himself.

    So if the program is about the "voice" why not just ditch all the other judges and just have tom jones telling the people like it is either they can sing or they can't then leave it up to the public to vote.

    Or get in some quality singers on equal footing as tom jones that has real form not just failing pop screetchers trying to rekindle their popularity, and then we can see some real talent come through instead of the usual garbage being pumped out on the tv nowadays.

    Tom jones, Shirly bassey, Dorris day, Bill withers or a whole hoste of wonderful artists that they could have chosen from all very well respected in their field and all with great voices.

    But they chose only one with a voice worth listening to or that has real credibility as a singer.

    Yes the others can perform but no they don't have a voice, the only one that actually knows what they are actually talking about when it comes to a voice is tom jones, in this program.

    So perhaps that is why so many people simply switch off after a short time, because they know that the judges have not got a clue what they are talking about.

    It's just a thought and it's not the judges fault that they are not as good as the people they judge, with the exception of tom jones of course, but it does seem a bit on the rediculous side when someone that has to use a computer to keep their voice in tune tries to tell someone with a great voice that they aren't up to it.

    What era is that??? You would never get any youngsters watching the programme if you did that!!! I thought Tom Jones was awful on the last series. I love his singing but he just constantly said you have a good voice and sing nicely and nothing else! Nothing constructive at all!!! Sorry - but this whole programme needs to be shelved, Tom Jones and all.....................................

    Dorris day brought out an album only two or so years ago, shirley bassey is still singing, and bill withers is still drawing huge audiences.

    Youngsters aren't that bothered with programs like this anyway, unless they have mates taking part doing their hip hop ramblings shouting words about how terrible life is for them ha.

    The program is called the voice so presumably it is about people that have a voice following a long tradition of using it to sing, it is not about performing it is whether they can sing, now the last program had a lot of very good singers, some kicked off the program way too early which kinda ruined it.

    If you kick your best off the show first then why would anyone bother to watch.

    When I buy music I don't buy shouty stuff I buy because I like the sound of the people making the noise, it is a pleasant noise the people can singe or play their instruments, and if they need a computer to keep them in tune I don't want their music because it is not there's.

    I like to listen to the sound of good quality voices, and good quality instruments played and sung by people that have a passion for their talent, not people that are looking to push any old crud onto me in order to rip me off due to their lack of ability or talent.

    Tom jones has a voice a wonderful voice, that gives him the right to judge, he has a tremendous amount of talent even at his age still amongst the best, the other judges can perform but have no voice their talent is that of a performing clown, nothing wrong with that as their performance provides something that some people want, but the programms name is "the voice" which means it is not about the performing clowns it is about people that have a voice.

    That's the problem with the program the name says bring your voice the judges says dance and jig about.

    No don't dance and jig about sing your heart out and let tom jones and other top singers judge you, not dancers.

    I equate it to letting a car machanic tinker with a 767 jet engine, I ask you would you want to fly after a car mechanic had serviced a 767 jet engine?

    If we want the best voices we have to have the best people who know what they are talking about judge, if you want to be sure you will arrive at your destination you want to be sure you have a jet engineer work on the jet who knows what they are doing.

    This program will always fail until they realise that people ie the audiences are not stupid, they go to listen or they switch on to listen to good voices because the program is called the voice, then they switch off because the program is about old boys networking where the best get pushed aside.

    It's not called xfactor where you have to look a certain way and appeal to little girls or boys trying to get them to spend their easily come by pocket money, it's a program aimed at adults who know what they like to listen to when they spend their hard earned cash, and as an adult you want good quality sounds that are appealing to the ears.

    Apart from Sex Bomb I dont know any other Tom Jones song!
    His voice is ok, but nothing special - Jessie J has a really distinctive voice I have heard her sing live and she really was excellent.

    No - we don't need Doris Day or Tom Jones. There are plenty of young talented singers with a Voice who don't shout. I suggest you watch and listen to Laura Mvula. Gorgeous, young, seriously talented and can sing without any accompaniment whatsoever. That's a true voice........

    I think Tom Jones gave up the tight trousers a while back! smiley - smiley

    You can find out more about Tom Jones's material on the BBC website

    There are links to a few tracks from his recent album on there, as well as some older well known ones.

    The newer material tends to show his extensive vocal range off a bit better, so have a listen to the new album track clips.

    www.bbc.co.uk/music/...

    I had the pleasure of sitting in on a live Tom Jones studio session when I was at BBC 6 Music - his voice up close is really quite incredible!

    Tom Jones had to change his style of singing and control his voice during the sixties because his agents/managers wanted him to be more "pop". He has only recently (well in the past twenty years or so) started to sing the blues and soul music that he really wanted to do at the start of his career. IMO he would know the music industry well.
    Jessie J IMO is a good singer. I enjoyed her performance at the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games.
    I had never heard of The Script or the young man from that group who is a judge but then I am a bit of an old fogie.
    I saw Will.i.am perform on the X Factor but didn't really like it (see end of last sentence)
    So, a cross-section of judges, although it might be nice to have another "older" judge (but please God, not Cilla)
    It doesn't matter whether contestants have fantastic/unusual voices because they will end up doing what the programme directors want them to do, and with all the new technology, will end up sounding nothing like they originally did!

Gorgeous, young, seriously talented and can sing without any accompaniment whatsoever. That's a true voice........   Well ok that's fine, if they can sing without the need for computers to keep them in tune and their voice sound good as well then I don't see a problem with that either.

    But the point is they need people that can actually sing juding, tom jones can sing and his voice is fabulous, the others can't, unless they have a computer fixing it for them.

    There is a difference between sounding ok and having a great voice, some of the contestants had great voices and got kicked off.

    If a program is called the voice then it should be all about the voice, not how beutiful they are or how black or white they look, or how fat or thin they are, or how well dressed or how their make up is done, it is about how good their voice is.

    I wonder how many people would bother with a program about cars if the people presenting it or judging it couldn't actually drive themselves, or how cheated would people feel if every soccer match depended on people that didn't know anything about soccer had to judge the final outcome of the game.

    Can you imagine the kind of comments they would make trying to sound like they knew what they were talking about.

    Oh he wore nice shorts, and his boots matched the colour of his eyes, and the laces had a nice shimmer to them.

    Oh and the ball had a nice round look today.

    Well that seems to be the voice it has a nice round ball look.
