TV Talent Shows? We all know what they are and they've been around in their current form since the beginning of the millennium. Popstars gave us Will Young, Popstars The Rivals gave us Girls Aloud and then came the X Factor spawning many stars including Leona Lewis, Matt Cardle, Olly Murs and of course One Direction. All the successful TV singing talent shows have been on ITV.

All of the these shows have judges from the music industry whether it be Geri Halliwell (Popstars The Rivals) or Kylie's sister Dannii Minogue (X Factor). But Kylie herself has never put her bum in the judges chair before. Of course she has helped mentor Dannii's team on the X Factor and performed numerous times on the show. In an interview on Channel 4's 'Alan Carr Chatty Man' in 2012 Kylie said she wouldn't be interested in the X Factor stating at that point it was 'a million per cent no'.

In 2012 the BBC launched their own singing talent show, 'The Voice UK' after it's success in other countries. The concept of the show is very different to the X Factor. There are no judges but four 'superstar coaches' who sit with their backs to singers. If they like what they hear they can turn around and that singer goes onto their team .... unless more than one coach turns around then the singer decides whose team they want to go on. The four coaches end up with a team of twelve singers and through various rounds they get whittled down until only one singer from each team remains and the winner of the live final is declared 'The Voice.'

In 2012 and 2013 the four coaches were Sir Tom Jones, Black Eyed Peas member will.i.am, Jessie J and The Script singer Danny O'Donoghue. For 2014 Jessie & Danny pulled out due to touring commitments. Rumours soon abounded that Kylie was being offered the role of coach for third series after she had initially turned down the role for the first series. In September it was confirmed that Kylie had agreed a contract and she was to join Sir Tom, will.i.am and Kaiser Chief's frontman Ricky Wilson for 2014. will.i.am was reportedly so keen for Kylie to sign he gatecrashed her meeting with executive producers and being able to talk to will was enough for Kylie to sign on the dotted paper.
