After many years of them ‘from across the pond‘ borrowing our tv ideas, the pendulum has eventually swung the other way…. BBC’s new Saturday night entertainment show, The Voice, has been a hit, so far. OK, the American version of the show was copied from the country that gave us Big Brother, but we’ll not hold that against the Dutch.
The Voice has trampled all over Britain’s Got Talent in the tv viewing figures, so much so, that Simon Cowell has been hitting the editing room in an attempt to give BGT a fighting chance.
The format of The Voice is simple… Entrants have one song to get the judges on-side in a blind audition. The judges cannot see who is singing and only when the judges hit a button does their chair turn and they get to see the act perform. If more than one judge likes an act, then it is with the contestant to choose who they’d like to mentor them for the next stage of the show.
From the two blind auditions shows, so far, 18 acts have made it through. There are two more blind autions before the show enters its second phase and that’s when betting on The Voice really begins to matter.
Current, The Voice, betting favourite is 17 year old, Belfast girl, Jessica Hammond who chose Jessie J after all four judges turned their chair during her blind audition. David Julien is close behind according to the bookies after he wowed judge Danny with his own song ‘Man That Can’t Be Moved’.
Personally, Vince Kidd has been the stand-out so far. Although Betfred disagree with my musical tastes as you can get betting odds of 20/1 from Betfred on Vince Kidd winning this singing competition.
