So last night saw the return of The Voice. And things have changed…
Not only do we have two new hosts, Emma Willis and Marvin Humes (that one from JLS), we also have two new judges in the form of international pop goddess Kylie and Kaiser Chief’s Ricky Wilson. Here’s what Twitter had to say about the series premiere…

Really enjoyed The Voice UK last night. I think the newbies are an excellent addition to it. Especially Kylie.

Though some people were missing former judges Jessie J and Danny O’Donoghue:

Others didn’t seem bothered by the change in judges and were focussed on the contestants themselves. Only right really. It is supposed to be about the voices, you know…
I wasn't going to carry on watching The Voice, but then Harp Girl happened.

The little kid on #TheVoiceUK was the best thing ever 🙂

This little girl's interaction with the judges is the best thing of #TheVoiceUK so far. And it didn't involve singing. Enough said?

In general, there was a lot of positivity about the new run of the reality show…
Even further into #TheVoiceUK now, and overwhelmed by how much better it is this series. And Leo the Lion is on it now! Ffs!

Worked out why BBC waste so much Licence fee money. 'The Voice UK' is example. z grade reality junk. Talent scouts need rockets in rectum.

#thevoiceuk – the only way to watch this programme is by recording it, fast forwarding until someone sings and ignore the rest.

#thevoiceuk – Another singing contest that we'll look back on like "yeh, they basically used 2put a village talent show on prime time"
