The four new judges of ITV’s ‘The Voice’ have come together for the first time, as the blind auditions for the new series get underway.
However, while the new team were gushing about their new roles just weeks ago, it’s fair to say that as they posed together on their way into the auditions they looked rather… how can we put this?
New additions Gavin Rossdale and Jennifer Hudson were seen posing with will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones ahead of the first round of blind auditions for the new series, although the ‘Dreamgirls’ star was pretty much the only one who looked happy to be there.
Thankfully, Gavin then managed to bring a bit of energy to the proceedings, though Jennifer looked less than impressed in that moment.
Come on, guys. All at once. Give us a smile…?
Hmmm… yeah. That’ll do.
Gavin said last month: “I am so thrilled to be joining The Voice UK. I have always been extremely proud to fly the flag for British rock music and I can’t wait to join this incredible panel and help discover some new talent.”
ITV confirmed that they’d acquired ‘The Voice’ UK earlier this year, after five series airing on the BBC.
From the most recent series of ‘The Voice’, only will.i.am will be returning, with Ricky Wilson, Boy George and Paloma Faith all confirming at varying stages that they wouldn’t be back.
While Gavin and Jennifer will make their debut on the ITV reboot, Sir Tom previously served as a coach on four series, before he was axed by the BBC in 2015, a move which he famously hit out at on numerous occasions.
