During recent auditions for The Voice, the judging panel formed a bit of a supergroup and took to the stage to perform together for the first time.
The picture above shows Danny O’Donoghue, Will.i.am, Tom Jones and Jessie J singign the hit Black Eyed Peas song ‘I Gotta Feeling,’ as penned by Will.i.am and footage of the performance will be aired on BBC One when the talent show launches on 24th March.
One audience member who saw the performance being recorded in January 2012 previously said:
“It was incredible to see such big names in music perform together. Hopefully this has set the bar for the rest of the show.
“Everyone was jumping out of their seats and dancing along. It was really exciting. The whole concept seems to be very different from The X Factor, which will be very refreshing.”
A preview for the brand new series will also get it’s first airing during The One Show on Monday, and will be introduced by new presenter Holly Willoughby.
She will be a guest on the nightly chat show, though her co-host Reggie Yates will not be present.
However, the BBC may be feeling the effects of hiring four such big named stars for their new show, as it has been reported that all four celebrities have been acting like divas on set.
During the audition and call back stages, it is claimed that Tom Jones has been demanding regular massages along with a juicing machine to make his healthy daily smoothies.
Jessie J needs regular Nandos takeaways, while Will.i.am needs a constant supply of coconut milk for WIll.i.am. The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue isn’t half as healthy and likes his helpers to bring him McDonalds meals each day.
A source told The Daily Star: “It’s like we’ve got four Mariah Careys on the show!”
The Voice will go head to head with Britain’s Got Talent and the shows will overlap for 20 minutes on the Saturday evening.
Which will you be watching live and which will you record and catch later? Bookies seem to think that BGT will win the ratings war on launch night, but that The Voice will draw in more than ten million viewers all the same.
