As ITV's X Factor dips to a new level of edited drivel, BBC's The Voice reveals their new judges line up for 2016.
As we know Tom Jones has been axed from the show and Rita Ora now resides on the X Factor. It has been revealed Boy George and Paloma Faith will now take a turn in the spinning chairs.
Ex front man of Culture Club and DJ Boy George has said 'I'm thrilled and excited to be a coach on The Voice UK. I'm a huge fan of the show and have watched and engaged with it from series one.'
Singing sensation Paloma is to take Rita Ora's chair after she jumped ship to be involved with the X Factor. Paloma Faith said 'I'm really excited about working with creative people who are there not just to be singers, but also innovative personalities and performers,'
Much has been made of Sir Tom Jones exit from the program and Sir Tom himself was not pleased with the way in which this process was done. He allegedly got notification a day before the news was released in the press.
The 75 year old mega star said he's all a program moving with the times and new judges are all part of that, but it was the way he got dumped that didn't sit right. The BBC have defended their decision by saying no judge is guaranteed their place on one of the spinning chairs from one year to the next and Tom Jones is no exception.
Boy George and Paloma Faith will join Will I am and Ricky Wilson on The Voice Panel while there is no change to the presenters with Emma Willis and ex JLS star, Marvin Humes taking center stage.
The Voice blind auditions are in full flow at the moment and the new series will air on BBC1 in January 2016.
