Boy George reveals all after being axed from The Voice Australia

Boy George reveals all after being axed from The Voice Australia

Boy George has opened up about being axed from The Voice Australia and revealed he even took a pay cut to appear on the show this year.

The British singing sensation was set to appear on the show again in 2021 but that came to a halt when it was announced Channel 7 had secured the rights to the show.

“Truth is, I kindly took a pay cut from @TheVoiceAU because of the corona,” Boy George tweeted this morning. “I am also decent, and they agreed to have me next season. If I had known they would swap networks I still would have taken a financial hit because I’m decent and I never burn bridges!”

The Voice is set for a shake-up on Seven with the network’s Director of Programming, Angus Ross, saying in August: “Our plans to supercharge the format are well underway”.

The new format will see a change in the coaching line-up with TV Blackbox reporting Aussie singers Tones and I and Ricki-Lee Coulter will both join the show.

It seems unlikely Boy George and Kelly Rowland, who recently announced her pregnancy, will return.

Guy Sebastian and Delta Goodrem have so far refused to comment about whether they’ll be involved.
