The Voice, as its name suggests, is all about the contestants’ voice (supposedly, at least). The very thought of Cheryl Cole being involved from the outset makes us giggle, but this video shows exactly why the former Girls Aloud star would be a bad choice for the new BBC series...
You see, not only are the mentors on the voice coaches to their contestants just like The X Factor, but they're also expected to lead by example. Over in the US the likes of Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green didn't just sit back and criticise the acts, they got up on stage and performed with them!
We just can't image cacophonic Cheryl Cole doing this; let alone someone like Louis Walsh!
More reasonable (but admittedly less likely) names tipped to judge on the show include Take That star Robbie Williams, Welsh crooner Tom Jones, George Michael and Adele
