Kylie Minogue Says The UK Version Of ‘The Voice’ Didn’t Suit Her – It’s Icy And Cold

June 27, 2014

The 46-year-old Aussie star was speaking about her role as a mentor on the BBC talent show “The Voice”. She made a comparison between the UK and Australian version of the show and talked about the two teams and the facilities.

She quit UK’s “The Voice” after only one season and said “We were in Manchester in a nice studio, but it’s smaller and it’s darker and it’s 4pm, icy cold,” said Kylie. She’s clearly not used to British cold and rainy weather.

That she prefers Australian climate, the singer confirmed by saying: “When we started to film the blind auditions in Australia it was January, so it was a beautiful day. It’s a blue sky, everyone’s happy, you’re walking around in your songs.”

“Apart from being at home, here it feels much more of a commercial show, more spectacular, almost gladiatorial. It’s kind of bigger and glitzier,” Kylie continued, “with a much smaller population we do it much bigger and I have to say the quality of the contestants is pretty extraordinary.”

However, she did have some positive comments about the British production. She said UK’s version was more emotional with more tears and some auditions even made members of her security crew cry.

“I don’t know that it’s scripted that way, it’s just the atmosphere or maybe I have a particularly sensitive security guy in England,” she joked.

When asked about her plans for “The Voice” 2015, she admitted she was a bit undecided.

“I don’t know, I really don’t. It’s a big commitment to do the show and I’m loving it, but we are yet to have our first (truly) live show. I’m trying to plan my year next year and that is one of the things that would be in question but I honestly don’t know.”
