Those rumours about electro-pelvis Puerto Rican Grammy winner Ricky Martin replacing Keith Urban‘s spot on the judging panel of The Voice Australia are actually TRUmours.
Channel Nine have indeed cast Ricky Martin to fill the Nice Guy Family Man With Well-Attended Hair space left empty when Urban announced he had defected to American Idol. Martin, who will give the show the large gay following that it totally already has, was confirmed as the new panel member by fellow Voice judge, Joel Madden, who tweeted the news during the ARIA Awards telecast last night.
Welcome to the neighbourhood, Ricky! Ole ole ole.
