Keith Urban is getting ready to begin his stint on the Australian version of The Voice. Below is the first commercial for the musical series, which will be shown down under.
Keith has always shown respect and sincere interest in the talents of others, and he’s very intrigued by the show’s concept. “It’s all about the voice, and I love the fact that we get to connect with that before everything else,” he explains. “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.”
He’s joined by other coaches Seal, Good Charlotte‘s Joel Madden and Australian pop-star and actress Delta Goodrem. The show is set to begin later this year.
The Voice — both the U.S. and Australian versions — consists of three phases: the blind auditions, the battle phase and live performance shows. When choosing their teams, the coaches cannot see the singers, concentrating only on their voices.
In the meantime, Keith, who is closing in on the top of the country charts with “You Gonna Fly,” will take his own voice to Austin, Texas February 10th.
