Given that he’s one of the most opinionated and outspoken men in the world of pop, it’s surprising that it’s taken TV producers this long to snap up Boy George to judge a talent show.
Over the years, his witty asides, catty one-liners and pearls of wisdom have become as famous as the music he's made, both as a member of Culture Club and as a solo artist.
Last week, it was announced that George would be joining the panel of coaches on the new series of ‘The Voice’, alongside fellow newcomer Paloma Faith, and familiar faces will.i.am and Ricky Wilson.
Speaking about his new job, he 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.
“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!”
Admittedly, it’s bad news for fans of Tom Jones - who has voiced his disdain for having been replaced with just 24 hours’ notice - but we have a feeling that George could be just what the ‘The Voice’ needs.
