Rumours are swirling that The Veronicas will become new judges on The Voice Australia in 2021 when it moves to Channel Seven.

But not all viewers are thrilled with the possibility of the Brisbane-based twins Lisa and Jessica Origliasso, 35, taking up red chair residency on the program.

Fans have taken to social media this week to plead for the network to consider other singers for the coveted TV role.

Channel Seven confirmed that its version of The Voice Australia in 2021 will be a ‘more efficient and cost-effective production’ than the show produced by Nine.

It’s believed next year’s judging panel will not feature any international stars, and will instead consist solely of local musicians. 

When reports surfaced this week that Seven were potentially considering The Veronicas, some fans of the show were less than impressed.

‘The Veronicas, seriously?’ one fan wrote, as others pleaded: ‘please not the Veronicas!’

‘It’s gone from bad to worst (sic),’ one viewer claimed of the proposed changes to the popular singing contest, as others insisted they felt bad for long-standing judge Delta Goodrem. 

Meanwhile, other frustrated comments suggested there must be ‘better options’ available for the network to approach.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted The Veronicas and Channel Seven for comment.

Seven is yet to confirm what will happen to incumbent Aussie judges Guy Sebastian and Delta Goodrem.

Delta, 35, is the longest-serving coach on The Voice Australia, having joined the line-up for its debut season in 2012.

It was reported last month that Nine had ‘failed to renew its contract’ for the 2021 season of The Voice, and Seven jumped on the licence ‘very quickly’. 

Channel Seven’s CEO, James Warburton, described the acquisition as ‘a coup’.

Warburton already has big changes in mind for the show, including cutting the number of episodes and having a tighter production schedule.

‘We have a whole new more efficient and cost-effective streamlined production and roll-out schedule which will concentrate the format over less episodes and shoot over a much shorter time frame,’ he said.
