Fans everywhere have been raging about the decision to bring Miley Cyrus on the next season of ‘The Voice’ – raging in support and against the choice, but in a new interview one of the show’s bosses goes to bat for the singer and explains why she was the perfect fit.
Whether you love Miley or ‘love to hate’ Miley the next season of NBC’s ‘The Voice’ is moving forward with her as one of the coaches and the show’s executive producer, Mark Burnett, explains why the choice was great for them.
“It’s always a jigsaw puzzle,” He explains about the show’s casting. “People also have touring schedules, and that’s why I say ‘The Voice’ is so complicated.”
The upcoming 11th season of ‘The Voice’ will feature Blake Shelton and Adam Levine as the longstanding coaches with their brotherly antics, and feature two female coaches for the very first time – Alicia Keys and Miley Cyrus.
Cryus, known to cause a stir with antics of her own is a well-respected and masterful musician in her own right. She’s truly one of the most talented vocalists this generations of singers will ever be blessed enough to hear, but for some people, that’s not enough.
“All four coaches are current touring artists,” Burnett says explaining how the show is so complicated. “But these turned out to be fantastic choices.”
“Miley is like 10,000 volts….and is super-smart,” Burnett continued. “I think a lot of people who aren’t Miley Cyrus fans are about to be.“
Burnett also says that he’s expecting a boost in ratings because of the talent and focus on singing – and the fact that his show is now the only mainstream singing competition doesn’t hurt either.
The 11th season of ‘The Voice’ will officially premiere on September 19th, but Burnett and his team have set up an early sneak peek this coming Sunday, immediately following the closing ceremonies of The Olympics.
