Keith Urban gearing up for talent show’s battle rounds
Melbourne: Keith Urban, who faces the battle rounds in ‘The Voice’ with his team next week, has said that it’s time to get real about what it takes to be a star. Despite how he chose his team, the country music superstar now recognises that the rest of the series is as much about the contestants’ presentation as it is about their voice.
“It would be a beautiful world if it was only about the way people sounded but it’s not; it never will be now,” a website has quoted him as saying.
“Even Adele said ‘I make music for the ears, not the eyes’ but she still has to maintain a particular way of looking, of presenting herself when she appears on the Grammys or makes a music video.
“That is the sad reality and this show, once it moves past the blind auditions, does move into that reality where they have to know how to present themselves,” he said.
