The couple formed by Angela Brambati and Angelo Sotgiu join the team of coaches (they take over from Orietta Berti) together with the confirmed Loredana Berté, Gigi D'Alessio and Clementino.
On the contestants, the hostess reveals: "We auditioned 3,000 people, I'm the only one who knows some details about their stories, the judges know nothing - there will be many women and there will be an 89-year-old senior, the most adult of all the editions , but also a man in a skirt and one in a tunic.But not only will we also have a colonel.
People who have approached the stage and who have not been successful, then ordinary people who have always had music as the only great love in their life". The show was presented to the press in Milan by the presenter with the judges together with Stefano Coletta and Raffaela Sallustio, Prime Time Entertainment Director and Deputy Director. And Marco Tombolini of the Fremantle production company. Coletta underlined "Since the beginning of my mandate, I have strongly wanted to bring Antonella Clerici back to the prime time of Rai 1, she has managed to revitalize the midday flagship network.
Furthermore, with The Voice Senior you managed to implant a third brand in Rai after Dancing with the Stars and Tale and Which Show". Clementino says: "Quest'
year I went to New York and there I discovered the Italians in the USA have followed the program with affection.
But I want to say right away that I want to win". Loredana Bertè: "The beauty of this show is that it combines music with wonderful stories.
In this edition the bar is even higher than in the past.
I hope to repeat last year's victory". Gigi D'Alessio: "Last year I had Claudia Arvati in the team, a great talent who reached the final.
Unfortunately I knew about her illness.
She is now she is a voice of angels, everyone loved her she has worked with great artists.
As for the next season, the beautiful thing is the truth and that The voice wins, not me.
We do not know the identities of those who take the stage and, in auditions in the dark, we only turn around if we feel a particular panache.
I Ricchi e Poveri (Angela Brambati and Angelo Sotgiu): "We thank everyone. We are often abroad and, when we were outside Italy, we watched The Voice Senior on Rai Italia. In addition to voices, we are interested in human stories, it is It's nice to be here, we feel like family."
Clerici on the stories of the protagonists of this edition says: "We favor the human side very much. Seniors, who obviously know how to sing, do not come here to aspire to a future as pop stars. When it is possible we choose to bring human events to the stage. Then it is up to the judges to express their opinions, free from any conditioning. In fact, they only judge the voice, not knowing the private side".
To the question of whether Italy is more a country for the old or for the young.
The presenter replies: "
I learn a lot from my daughter, who has very indie musical tastes.
Music, however, has no age.
It is neither a country for the young nor for the old.
Everyone has their own story". Regarding the rumors about The Voice Kids Stefano Coletta confirms: "We will surprise you.
We are working hard". To Gigi D'Alessio on any advice given to LDA to face the Sanremo Festival: "Recklessness plays in his favor.
He keeps telling me he's in a stellar cast.
More than advice, I give him recommendations such as not to get anxious or not be late at night". Clerici scolds Rai: "I see many commercials on many programs, but on The Voice Senior I have seen few promos". Loredana Bertè adds: " And they also cut us…". The Voice Senior is produced, in Italy,
