The Voice 2013: Bosses to introduce a new round where Danny O’Donoghue can steal singers from Will.i.am
Things are going to be kicking off when The Voice returns to our screens next year.
In the first series of the BBC talent show, coaches often got into arguments as they tried to win talented singers for their teams and who can forget Danny O’Donoghue’s row with Will.i.am over who got to work with Bo Bruce.
Moments like these could occur more frequently when the series returns in 2013, as bosses have reportedly revealed that the new run will feature a brand new knockout stage.
In a bid to spice things up and keep viewers interested once proceedings move past the initial auditions, the BBC producers are following in the footsteps of the American version which added an extra battle round and also gave coaches the opportunity to steal contestants from one another.
Explaining the new format, Mark Burnett – executive producer of the US version – said:
”In season three, the DNA of the show is the same, but for the battle rounds, the torso of this format, we need to make a couple tweaks. It’s like fantasy football. You become incentivised to watch the entire league as opposed as to your own team.”
”When the coaches have their battles and select one singer to stay with them, another coach can buzz in and steal the singer the other coach sent home.”
Star magazine claims that the Beeb are planning to move down the same route and want to spice things up in a bid to improve their ratings, which dropped dramatically once the live shows started earlier this year.
Series one of the UK show saw Tom Jones, Jessie J, Danny and Will.i.am going head to head with their teams of talented singers.
O’Donoghue has confirmed that he will be back, as has Will.i.am, however Jessie J has reportedly stepped down from the panel and insiders say Tom won’t commit until he finds out who will be replacing the ‘Domino’ hitmaker.
