Kaiser Chiefs Born To Be Chilled Sessions

The frontman of the Kaiser Chiefs is to join Kylie Minogue as the new judge on the Saturday night talent show.

Ricky Wilson, frontman with the Kaiser Chiefs, is to become the new judge on TV's The Voice.

The 35-year-old singer is to replace The Script's Danny O'Donoghue on the talent show next year.

Wilson told the BBC: "Who doesn’t want to spend their Saturday night with Kylie Minogue? I spent last winter yelling at The Voice, and both Sir Tom Jones and will.i.am are total superstars.

“I’m just lucky the Kaiser Chiefs have rubber-stamped my temporary loan.”

The band released their greatest hits compilation, Souvenir, last year and headlined Radio X's Winter Wonderland in 2011.
