Kylie Minogue Quits The Voice UK

March 22, 2014 8:46 pm

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.
