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
