Mark Owen For The Voice?
November 6, 2011 by staff
The singer is reported to have been offered a deal by the BBC to appear as a judge on forthcoming talent show The Voice, which has been a big hit in the US with Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green on board.
Jessie J has already been signed as one big-name judge/mentor and it is now claimed that producers have got Mark at the top of their list.
An insider told The Daily Star Sunday: “Getting Mark to sign up would be a huge scoop for The Voice. The format has been a massive success in America and the BBC are determined to make sure they get the highest quality of judges possible.
“Gary has been a big hit on The X Factor and Beeb bosses love the idea of getting one of his bandmates to go head-to-head against him on a rival show. Ideally producers want a huge international name but they also want a home-grown megastar.
“Although Jessie J is big right now, she’s relatively new. Mark is perfect because he’s not only had a hugely successful 20-year career, he’s also relevant now. And signing him up to be a rival to Gary is even more of an incentive.”
Kylie Minogue had been mooted as a judge, but was ruled out becuase the corporation reportedly couldn’t afford the amount she was asking for.
