He’s been a coach on The Voice for the past three years, even winning the most recent season with Bella Taylor Smith as his contestant, but Guy Sebastian admits that there’s one thing that he still gets nervous about on the singing competition.
The Choir hitmaker spoke with Yahoo Lifestyle all about the upcoming season of the reality TV show and what it’s been like filming with his fellow coaches Rita Ora, Keith Urban and Jessica Mauboy once again.
“It's amazing, it’s been really great. I've just been loving the chemistry,” he said.
“Every year we think, Bella was pretty incredible last year, how are we going to get more talent? That's the thing I get the most nervous about. And then there we go, we’re slamming the button down, turning for someone else incredible.
“I don't know what it is, I guess it's maybe access to the internet and YouTube, but people are just getting so insanely talented at a young age.”
Guy went on to gush about his co-star Keith Urban, saying that “there isn’t a nicer man” than the four-time Grammy winner.
“I can't even tell you how much I adore that man,” he remarked, with his wife Jules Sebastian adding, “It’s a bromance!”.
“I just love him,” Guy continued. “What you see is what you get and he’s kind to everyone he passes, doesn't matter who it is. That means a lot to me when I look at people do that, and he’s a huge world-famous rockstar!
“We were shooting today all the overlay things on The Voice and we’re in these fancy little light sets and stuff, and he’s just rocking out on his guitar and doing all these silhouettes. And I had to get in there and I was like, ‘I can’t out-Urban him!’”
Guy’s comments come as Channel Seven dropped a brand new trailer for the upcoming spin-off series, The Voice Generations, which will air in 2022.
The global-first special event will see the nation’s greatest voices from different age demographics, including families, friends, neighbours, students and teachers, coming together to perform in The Voice arena.
While it takes place over one massive week only, the show’s format will still feature Blind Auditions, a Battle round and an epic Grand Finale.
“Expect show-stopping performances, tears and triumphs as the power of music connects generations like never before,” Channel Seven said in a statement.
