Will.i.am admits The Voice may not make great TV
Will.i.am has admitted that The Voice may not make great TV but that it will produce great artists.
The Black Eyed Peas star, who was speaking ahead of tonight’s final, said he is pleased that the BBC show has been more about the talent than any backstage drama:
“This show is different. I want to see every single person who walked off the stage proud, not battered and bruised. That is why I like this format.
“Maybe it doesn’t make great TV but it is going to make great artists. All around the world you are seeing the same ratings drop for The Voice live shows – in America, Australia.
“But which one do you want – great TV, or artists who are going to go and perform for people and make people forget about their problems?”
The 37-year-old, who this week unveiled the video for his new single, ‘This Is Love,’ went onto reveal that he still considers the show to be a success:
“If you were to compare this show to the music business, we had a big hit and the hit was 12million viewers. To sustain that, that is when things start getting scripted and fake. But this isn’t.”
