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.

Kylie and Will.I.Am Out – The Voice Australia 2015

Well in no surprising news, it’s bye bye to Kylie Minogue and Will.I.Am for the 2015 season of The Voice Australia, replaced with one new face, one returning face and one addition to an existing team.

It’s not so confusing once it’s all spelled out.

Ricky Martin is back on board along with fellow judge Joel Madden who this year, will be joined by brother Benji (as one coach), Jessie J (It’s not about the money money..we don’t need the money money…) is this years newest face and the returning coach?  Well, it’s none other than our favorite Aussie songstress, Delta ‘Delts’ Goodrem!

We all knew when Kylie announced her Kiss Me Once Tour for 2015 that she’d be a no show…Will.I.Am?  Perhaps it came down to a work clash as he’s just started season three of The Voice UK (and not the utterly horrible decision he made by getting involved in 2014 winner Anja Nissen’s winners single – god awful by the way).

The addition of Benji Madden was a no brainer.  The two are hugely popular here, have a great following and their work together on The Voice Kids made for great viewing.  Jessie J’s addition too was predictable but wise.  J has a strong following here offering up a string of hit singles plus her double season stint on The Voice UK gives her plenty of knowledge and ammo to come into our version with.

Ricky.  We all love Ricky Martin.  Nuff’ said.

Delts.  Must admit, I was very surprised by her addition (or re-addition) to this years coaches.  Bumped for Kylie last year and relegated to The Voice Kids, Delts is back on board for the 2015 season.
