Queen’s co-founding member who is considered as one of the most legendary guitarists of all time, Brian May, was recently interviewed by ‘The Mirror’ to promote his recently released badger-scented perfume, and he also shared his thoughts on ITV Talent Show: ‘The Voice’
The Voice (also known as The Voice UK) is a long-time going talent show that aims to find the United Kingdom’s little-known talents to make them a famous star all over the world. The show was created by John De Mol in 2012 and premiered on BBC One in the same year. Some of the stars you may remember from the series were Leanne Mitchell, Andrea Begley, Jermain Jackman, and Stevie McCrory.
In his latest interview, Brian admitted that he’s not a fan of the talent shows because it simply does not work. May thinks that those kinds of shows isolate a voice from the face, body, and soul of the performer.
Here is what he said:
“We make music and it is all about music but the packaging is vital as it is the first thing people see. It is like an album cover, the picture on the album cover. That is the whole definition of people’s first impressions. You want to hold it and touch it. For me, it is a big part of it. I think this is true of humans too.
With a performer, you could say it is all about the voice but it is not just about the voice. It is about the whole body, the face, and the soul which is why I really hate this program called The Voice because it does not work. You can’t just isolate a voice and think that is what it is all about.”
