Two new coaches for The Voice UK have been announced, and they are…



We’re like, SO excited!


British singer-songwriter Boy George was the lead singer of band Culture Club (karma-karma-karma-karma-karma-chameleonnnnn) and has made countless albums as a solo artist since 1987 and over the last three decades.

Speaking of his new venture, Boy George said: "I'm thrilled and excited to be a coach on The Voice UK… I'm a huge fan of the show and have watched and engaged with it from series one.”

They all say that though, don’t they?

"If I can help someone to win I will be delighted. What a wonderful opportunity to share my experiences and help someone move forward with their musical career. I can't wait to sit in that chair!"

We might try and audition just to get close to him.

And then there’s Paloma – what a babe! The singing talent rose to fame in 2009 with her debut album called Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?

Maybe she’ll use that line on the show?


Faith said: "I'm really excited about working with creative people who are there not just to be great singers, but also innovative personalities and performers.

"I have a long history of helping break artists as in my club nights I booked Kate Nash, Adele, and The Noisettes before they hit the big time and four of my band members have gone on to pursue successful solo careers. I'm really looking forward to getting my teeth into something that cultivates the talents of another person and takes the focus off myself for a bit."

The two new judges will be replacing Rita Ora – who left to be a judge on rival talent show The X Factor – and Sir Tom Jones, who had previously been with the show since it’s first series in 2010.

Even though we’re so excited to see Boy George and Palamo Faith join and Ricky Wilson as coaches, we’re sooo upset Sir Tom is leaving.
