Keith Urban To Star On The Voice Australia
A version of The Voice, down under? Its closer to happening than you may think. [lastfm link_type=""]Keith Urban[/lastfm] will star on the Aussie version of the series when it begins later this year.
Structurally, the show is very similar (if not identical to) the NBC version starring [lastfm link_type=""]Blake Shelton[/lastfm]. Keith says: ”It’s all about the voice, and I love the fact that we get to connect with that before everything else,” he says. “I can’t see what these people look like, same as when I hear a song on the radio by a new artist, I don’t know what they look like.”
It’s not clear when the series will begin, but I hear that it’s coming in 2012. Urban also said: ”It’s authenticity, that’s the thing I’m listening for.” ”It’s that pure believability that I feel like this person is speaking to me.” The ‘Without You’ hitamker just recently flexed his own voice, perforimg for the first time since undergoing surgery on his vocal chords to remove a polyp. His next show is Feb. 10 in Austin, Texas.
