Most of the recent talent shows that we have seen in Australia and overseas, while uncovering some talent, have tended to rely on ridiculing the hopes and dreams of wannabe singers. Many recruited judges specifically for that purpose. Simon Cowell who devised the format was substituted by Dicko and Vile Sandilands in Australia.
The Voice does not go in for that sort of put down. All of the artists who have auditioned so far can sing and the judges are even supportive of those that they do not pick up for the next rounds. For this reason alone I think this puts it in a class above Australian Idol. I can not speak for the local version of X Factor and Australia's Got Talent as Channel 7 insisted on including Vile Sandilands on the panel for both and he is enough reason to avoid any program, on TV or radio. Which I did.
So best of luck to The Voice and I hope that it continues in the vein that it has started.
