Since Keith Urban is stepping down as coach to join S12 of American Idol, there's a spot left on The Voice Australia's judging panel. Seal, Delta and Joel are all set to return for a second season. Today, November 29th, it has been announced that Puerto Rican pop singer and actor, Ricky Martin will be joining the series, in what sounds like a weird addition to the panel. I was hoping they went for Kylie, since she's arguably Australia's biggest star but she probably declined the offer. That means Delta is the only Australian judge, with Seal being British, Joel American and now Ricky, who's Puerto Rican. What do you think of the new addition? Are you excited for S2 now?
