As an avid The Voice Australia watcher, I was nothing short of surprised to hear that Big Brother Australia host Sonia Kruger is coming onto The Voice Australia for a co-hosting gig.
Now, can someone please explain to me why The Voice Australia needs a second host? Nothing against Kruges’…the woman does a brilliant job hosting BBAU (though I will put my hand up and say I do miss the Gretel Killeen days) but as for The Voice host Darren McMullen needing a helping hand….he seems to be doing fine with the workload involved with the job.
The news have offered up some mixed reviews from viewers, some even suggesting this hammers in the final nail in BBAU’s coffin for any chance of a return to our screens this year..
Kruges’ joining The Voice AU is just another step in shake-ups for the show with Kylie Minogue and Will.I.Am stepping down from the big red chairs, replaced with Jessie J, the return of Delta Goodrem and the addition of Joel Madden’s twin brother Benji.
The Voice AU returns later this year on Channel 9.
