Kylie Minogue's Judging Chair On 'The Voice' Modified To Make Up For Small Stature

The singer is just over five foot tall

Kylie Minogue has had her red spinning chair on 'The Voice' adapted to make up for her lack of height.

It has been reported that steps have been installed at the foot of her judging chair so that she doesn't appear too short compared to the other judges and so her feet aren't dangling in mid-air during filming.

"The block of steps is really quite cute. We thought about lowering the chair but that would have been a headache because we would have had to redesign all of them or hers would have looked out of place," a source revealed to The Daily Star.

"The block also gives her somewhere to rest her feet so they don’t dangle," they added.

The singer is just over 5 feet tall yet the alterations to her chair have made her height difference with the other judges barely noticeable. Also joining her on the panel are original judges Tom Jones and Will.I.Am and Ricky Wilson from Kaiser Chiefs will be replacing Danny O'Donoghue.

Hopefully, the new additions can turn the dwindling show around. The previous two series have had trouble maintaining ratings and it lost half of its viewers between the blind auditions and the final stages. Both winners have failed to set the world alight with their music offerings and disappeared from the limelight completely.

Kylie's new role was received with mixed reviews but one person who thinks she will be a good judge is former coach, Jessie J.

“Kylie will be able to teach them things that I couldn't. I think it's really important that it changes. I really, really am happy that they've changed it up a bit and there's new people to teach them new things," she revealed to Digital Spy.

"I'm very excited to become a coach on The Voice. I love the concept of the show and have been an avid viewer of both series. The search for new talent is such an important aspect of the music industry and The Voice gives us all a part to play in that," said Kylie upon the announcement of her new role.

The third series of The Voice starts on January 11.
