There is no long game with The Voice - it's about the auditions and that's about it. Was a bit of a joke seeing Tom Jones pitch to a contestant last night about going to him because he'd bring out a versatile side to her and show off other areas of her talent, yet when they only have two live shows they just don't have the opportunity to do that at all.
Talking of live shows I think we're seeing The Masked Singer is a show which actually benefits from being pre-recorded. I just think it would be so much harder to keep the secrets if it aired live in a weekly slot.
Being live would make the judges look farcical when identities are guessed by loads at home and that fact gets well reported but they continue to say names which don't fit the clues.
Through some of the Judges comments might be scripted - Davina mentions Tom Daley then a truth or lie is do I get wet. Panel think the Duck is a spice girl then a truth or lie is was I in a famous girl group.
It also be easier to rule out people due to known commitments on airing dates and rule out a lot of people who cant commit to two months of filming but could do the two weeks it takes to make a series.
