"The Voice Australia" 2017 premiered on April 24 on Channel Nine with some flamboyant addition to the show's lineup of coaches, Boy George and Kelly Rowland. Coaches Seal and Delta Goodrem return this year.

The singing competition's fifth season finale aired on July 10 a year ago. Alfie Arcuri, the first blind audition of the season, gave Delta her first victory ever in her four years with the show (she skipped Season 3). In contrast, Seal has never lost a season (he had been away from 2014 to 2016). He won the first two seasons with Karise Eden and Harrison Craig, respectively.

George is no stranger to “The Voice,” since he was the coach of the UK version of the reality singing show with, Paloma Faith and Ricky Wilson. In addition, the Australian audience has shown him and Culture Club a lot of love over the years, so expectations are high this season.

In a recent interview, George talked about his youth and how he started late in the music industry. The brilliant artist opened up to the Herald Sun about how he never thought of becoming a musician. The English singer and fashion icon said he never dreamt of being a singer as a kid. The 55-year-old reminded readers that he did not start his music career until he was 21.

Though George had aspirations of being a famous singer, he never thought it would actually happen since he came from a “working-class background.” He never anticipated that a person like him, who spent his initial life in suburbs, would become famous one day. So what is George's advice to the aspiring singers who are going to perform on "The Voice" Australia?

"Fame is one of those weird things where it can just be about having the right haircut, where you are at certain point in time [and] how you walk into a room. A lot of it [is influenced by] luck, it's about the stars aligning. If we knew how to bottle it, we'd all be doing it," said the musician, who has so far spent three decades in the music industry.

George, a rebel in the 1980s when he wore make-up and flashy clothes like women, said that “holding on to your own sense of identity has been essential” in his life.

"The Voice Australia" 2017 (Season 6) aired at 7.30 p.m. on Monday on Channel Nine with blind auditions. The first episode revealed that there may be chances of a rivalry between Seal and George. Stay tuned for the recap.
