The Voice to have Singapore/Malaysia edition
Aspiring singers can now rejoice as the popular reality television singing competition The Voice will soon be having a Singapore/Malaysia edition!
Singapore’s mm2 Entertainment, a wholly owned subsidiary of mm2 Asia, has recently came into agreement with licensor Talpa Global to gain the rights to produce and broadcast the show which is famous for its bling auditions format, The Straits Times reports.
“Given the strong historical and cultural bond between the two countries, the Singapore/Malaysia version is a great way to extend this iconic format to this part of the world,” said Melvin Ang, Chief Executive Officer of mm2 Asia.
