Bieber to guest star on The Voice
You know you’ve made it when Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale spend an afternoon making a fan video to your song. Kathy McCabe discovers that what has happened to Canadian singer/songwriter Carley Rae Jepsen since then is even more incredible
A little girl battling a rare type of brain cancer had her wish come true when pop star Justin Bieber paid her a visit.
Delta Goodrem, Joel Madden, Seal and Keith Urban judge Nine’s hot new talent search series The Voice Australia.
After successful runs in the UK and US, ‘The Voice’ is making it’s Australian debut this Sunday with hosts Delta Goodrem, Keith Urban, Good Charlotte’s Joel Madden and international singing star Seal.
JUSTIN Bieber is among international artists said to be in talks with the producers of The Voice about making an appearance on the show in upcoming weeks.
While the program’s format currently doesn’t provide an opening for celebrity appearances, Confidential hears that format is set to change as the series develops and the contestant numbers thin out between now and late June.
Yesterday a Nine Network representative confirmed producers are looking at “opportunities for guest artists” but stopped short of confirming Bieber was booked on a plane to Sydney.

“The format has opportunities for guest artist performance in a show down the track,” a Nine spokeswoman said last night. “Producers are in discussions with a number of people about who that might be.”
There were widespread rumours that Bieber would be flying into Australia last week to start his 2012 Australian tour but for reasons unknown that tour has not got off the ground despite a massive groundswell of support for the young singer.
Industry sources said the young Canadian is still hard at work on a new album and suggested his Believe tour would happen later in the year. Universal Music representatives were not contactable yesterday.
“A trip to Australia in the next two months could serve as a nifty promotional tour ahead of the actual tour,” the source said. “It would be a smart move.”
TV insiders said The Voice is a program for which the ratings typically decline after the initial excitement fades.
And those massive ratings are an intoxicating enticement for any music industry executive who is looking to promote some overseas talent locally.
“Bieber is a tonic for any television show. Look what he did for Sunrise on Seven. The Voice‘s producers know that,” they said.
