Kylie Minogue Quits The Voice UK
Kylie Minogue has announced that she will quit the BBC show The Voice UK as a judge at the end of the
current series. This announcement has come as a shock to the show organizers who were hoping that the
Australian pop sensation who resides in London would take The Voice UK to new TRP heights. Incidentally,
the show is embarking on its live stages with the first quarter-final about to kick off soon.
Kylie Minogue’s Performance on The Voice UK
Kylie Minogue was signed on to be a judge on the BBC show for a whopping sum at the start of this year. But
she proved that the investment on her was worth every penny. Although she has been on the once-floundering
show for only one season, she has already had its TRP ratings soaring to stratospheric heights. In recent times,
The Voice UK has trounced popular shows like ITV’s Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway to climb up the
charts. So it is indeed a pity that she will not be there in 2015.
Kylie Minogue’s Decision to Quit not Surprising to Many
Kylie Minogue’s decision to quit The Voice UK, however, does not come as a surprise to many. After all,
Kylie had recently announced the dates of her upcoming European tour of her album Kiss Me Once during the
autumn. She has clarified that she enjoys being a part of the show, but her touring commitments are equally
taxing. Besides, she finds some parts of the musical reality show too emotional.
Kylie Minogue has also revealed that she will also be a part of the Voice Australia show. So with live tours and
a spot on the Australian show, it is only natural that Kylie will find it hard-pressed for time to commit to the UK
But it seems that the BBC officials are not willing to let go of Kylie so soon. A spokesperson said that the
Aussie singing star is a “fantastic addition to the coaching lineup.” Kylie is not only popular with the viewers
but is also a favorite of the contestants. So it did not come as a surprise when BBC announced that they are
willing to reschedule shooting dates for The Voice UK to accommodate Kylie’s other commitments. But Kylie
has also not confirmed that she could be back even if the dates didn’t clash eventually. It seems that she has
priorities other than being a judge on The Voice UK.
