^ i would agree it will b tight and rushed. x factor uk has done 16 over 2 hours before and it does feel rushed.
i personally dont really watch any of the voice formats because it just feels like a total conveyor belt .... for all the pantomine staged theatrics and fluff of the x factor at least one contestant leaves most weeks. and u can feel more invested in who u like or dont like. the voice seems to chuck them way too quickly... and the aussie format strikes me as particularly rushed.
i think this is one reason why the voice wont stand the test of time. it hasnt gelled as well as past formats in the uk and ireland anyway. the novelty of the blinds is the big draw and even that will get old. it is still rating fairly healthily in australia though isnt it. even with the drop... those numbers look decent.
Actually we do know that it wouldn't have been add successful without the voice. The song was released on the Friday and climbed to around 20,v after her Logies performance it rocketed up to #2 and then due to her Voice exposure and consequently her relationship with Channel Nine, there were moments where the song was revived because of her being on The Voice - State of Origin performance, 60 Minutes story, the final week of The Voice (after over two months of release) the exposure helped it climb on radio. There was no way she could have got that level of support for one single after being absent in the music industry for 5 years.
And I can guarantee you that when she goes over to the US and the UK, they will mention her as coach on the Australian version of The Voice which speaks volumes of how she is an established success in Australia, especially when they mention the high calibre of the other coaches (Keith Urban, Seal, Ricky Martin and Joel Madden).
I'll admit Delta's team didn't make the most of The Voice in launching COTU. But if they did, it would have done really well and we wouldn't be having this discussion. If they use the show now, Delta is afforded a great opportunity that she won't be able to replicate until next year if she does another season. You seriously under value the importance of being on such a well loved influential show that has made Delta completely relevant when so many people would rather write her offand forget about her.
to be fair... sototw prob wouldnt have had the longevity it did without the show but i still think Delta's role on the show is a waste of time now... the first season,it was worth trying... the second season was ill advised but im guessing she personally felt she had something to prove by coming back..... but i just dont believe a third season makes sense... it will b nothing more than an easy pay cheque... she doesnt seem to want to use the show to promote her music...so why bother... it isnt advancing her music for sure. its consuming her time.
i honestly dont believe people are gonna be interested worldwide. these shows are ten a penny now. maybe if the show aired internationally and there was general awareness of the specifics of the show and the controversies etc then it could be a discussion point but not when this version is unknown in such places.
honestly..i always sound like a broken record on ere but im convinced her role on the show has achieved v little for her and any further involvement will only consume precious time and open her up to continued hate
sure she has achieved some exposure ... but v little else positive has come from relying so heavily on a show like this to b relevant.
time to be brave and bold and bust a gut worldwide promoting her music. otherwise how and when can it ever happen
Sunday: 1.92m (good)
Monday: 1.57m (lowest ever)
Tuesday: 1.59m (nice considering up against highly promoted House Rules that only got 800K but still low).
I think the Sunday programming works for a reason. I don't know if Monday night is a great idea. And no results show when they really could milk the ratings doesn't make sense either.
Don't get me started on the 16 contestants in one show. That will feel way too full on.
But I think the show will finish strongly. As for Delta releasing the single and announcing a tour it seems unlikely. Seal is meant to have written a song called Let Yourself or something before this season started and the Madden Brothers have an album to release too. I naturally assumed they'd release it in time to make the most of the exposure from The Voice. They have a little over a month. Ricky seems to be the only one to benefit through his greatest hits collection
are the songs just 2 mins long in Australia? ... 2 mins x 16 contestants leaves you with really 32 mins of performances and lots of room for coaches views, breaks, recaps and results..
it's obvious that once it gets down to the final 4, there will be one person from each team remaining.
Well duh... that's how the show works.
I do know the Voice Ireland didn't work under the premise that every coach lost one contestant per show and there was no guarantee that every judge would have a finalist... I think the Uk format was similar..... I guess different territories are working the format differently
