Recently, Simon Cowell did an interview with BBC Radio 4 and brought up one VERY good point about his shows’ competition, The Voice — all while adding more fuel to the fire!
According to Simon, if the show is “all about the voice, then what’s the point of looking at them?” LOLz…we suppose he’s right!
Cowell went on to say that he thinks the show should be on the radio, rather than TV!
Hmm…that'd be interesting!
The Voice UK had been quite the rival for Cowell’s Britain’s Got Talent — beating out Cowell’s competition show in a full-on ratings war this past season!
While many have drawn comparisons between The Voice and Simon’s other show, The X Factor, Cowell viewed his rival’s competition as a time to “roll your sleeves up” and bring it!
"Suddenly I'm watching it [The Voice] a week, two weeks ago. It's the same as X Factor. You know, they've got dancers behind them. They've got graphics, lights. Same show."
But a little healthy competition is good, right?
According to Cowell, while The Voice was beating BGT, he took it as a chance to try to make HIS shows better!
As for what Simon thinks about his future in competition reality shows?
"I'll know when it's time A, for me to leave the shows or B, not to make these shows anymore, simply because people won't be interested. I'm not going to self-destruct."
At least in America, although The Voice is moving to the fall for its third season, The X Factor USA will NOT be going head to head with the show!
The Voice will be airing Mondays and Tuesdays, whereas The X Factor will air Wednesdays and Thursdays this fal!
Phew! That could've been a close one! It'll be interesting to see, though, which show will win out in ratings each week!
