Kylie (Minogue. It’s sometimes hard to narrow it down) has reportedly been offered £1million to be a coach on The Voice, the BBC’s alternative to X Factor.
We find this to be oxymoronic. Emphasis on the moronic.
The Voice, you see, is supposed to be about the voice. And not just any old voice, either. A voice that doesn’t strip tarmac. How they came up with the title is beyond us but really, they do insist the show is about the voice.
And Kylie is lots of things – like small – but she’s not about the voice. Which is phoned in at the best of times.
If this is true, as opposed to false, then the show has lost all integrity before it has even begun. And gives carte blanche to all contestants to use the following phrases:
‘This coming from Kylie?’
‘This coming from Kylie Minogue?’
‘This coming from Dannii’s sister?’
‘This coming from that bird off Neighbours?’
