Boy George has been confirmed as the third judge on The Voice Australia next year.
A vocalist, producer, author, DJ and frontman of hit group Culture Club, Boy George will join global recording artists Seal and Delta Goodrem as a Coach on season six of Australia’s Logie Award-winning, most outstanding entertainment program.
Boy George’s career spans more than 30 years, accumulating worldwide sales in excess of 150 million albums and singles, both as a singer and songwriter with Culture Club and as a solo artist in his own right. The Grammy Award nominee has created a worldwide presence that transcends age, race, colour, nationality and even religion.
Touring the globe extensively throughout his career, Boy George recently played a string of sellout shows in Australia with Culture Club, and to keep up with demand he has returned to our shores for another national tour, cementing his popularity down under.
“I am super excited to be doing The Voice in Australia, because I know they can take a bit of banter and I won’t be holding back. The UK season was a warm-up and I am ready to sprinkle some pop-tastic glitter dust all over the show,” Boy George said.
Boy George is no stranger to The Voice, having occupied a red chair in season five of the UK version alongside fellow Coaches Will.i.am, Paloma Faith and Ricky Wilson.
The fourth judge who will make up the judging panel is expected to be announced soon
