It has finally been confirmed that Danny will join Will.I.AM on The Voice Kids next year!! Can’t wait to see him on the telly finding a new superstar!
The Voice Kids has put the finishing touches on will.i.am’s star-studded coaching panel.
With blind auditions beginning next month, the Black Eyed Peas star will be joined in the spinning chairs by McFly’s Danny Jones and pop sensation Pixie Lott.
Together, the trio will be on the lookout for talented kids between the ages of 7 and 14 to win a “life-changing grand prize”, which will be announced in the months ahead.
Pixie has three UK number-one singles to her credit, and also recently delighted West End audiences as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany.
“I can’t wait to join The Voice Kids and help discover the next big star,” Pixie said in a statement. “I have such a passion for talented young people and I know the UK will have lots – I can’t wait to hear them!
“I’m looking forward to getting started and working alongside my fellow coaches will.i.am and Danny Jones.”
Danny is fresh off his own successful McFly reunion tour, where the boys played each of their hit albums in sequence for fans across the UK.
“I’m pumped about joining The Voice Kids team,” Danny said of his new gig. “There are so many talented kids out there, they just need to be heard and this is a great platform for them.
“I’m looking forward to finding some fresh talent and coaching them. You never know, there might be a mini McFly out there!”
At the centre of this new coaching panel is will.i.am, who is making the move to ITV with The Voice following several successful series over on BBC One.
“Doing The Voice Kids with Pixie and Danny is going to be dope and I’m really excited to discover just how talented British kids can be,” the Black Eyed Peas frontman commented.
Ahead of the spinoff show, will.i.am is reuniting with Sir Tom Jones to join newcomers Jennifer Hudson and Gavin Rossdale as coaches on The Voice UK.
Emma Willis makes the jump from the BBC too when The Voice UK premieres on ITV next January.
