Voice host So­nia’s rel­ish­ing go­ing live

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE - JACKIE EP­STEIN

SO­NIA Kruger can’t wait to work to her strengths in prime time: do­ing live tele­vi­sion.

The co- host of The Voice said: “I re­ally feel some­times that I’m a bit rub­bish at taped shows. Some peo­ple are re­ally good at it, they can present the Get­aways and they can do the recorded pieces to cam­era. I ac­tu­ally feel like I need an au­di­ence and luck­ily with The Voice there is an au­di­ence, so we ac­tu­ally tape it as live.”

The Voice will start its live shows as soon as next week.

Kruger ( pic­tured) said she had met only one of the coaches, Delta Goodrem.

“Ricky is ac­tu­ally re­ally funny and I love Jessie be­cause she is what she is,’’ she said.

“She’s bol­shie and she’s up­front and she’s opin­ion­ated and I love all that about her. Delta is one of the most beau­ti­ful kind­hearted peo­ple you could ever hope to meet. Which is why it’s in­ter­est­ing they clashed pro­fes­sion­ally in terms of their opin­ions for cer­tain artists. Benji is just so sweet and you could tell he was so in love and he was miss­ing ( wife Cameron Diaz) so I hope he brings her out for some of the live shows.”

Kruger, 49, is jug­gling work as co- host of Morn­ings, The Voice and be­ing a mum to six- month- old Mag­gie.

“Be­ing a mum doesn’t feel like a job,’’ she said.

“It’s just so nice to see her lit­tle smi­ley face ev­ery morn­ing. And they don’t tell you this about ba­bies but when you see them first thing in the morn­ing they’re ( a) re­ally happy and ( b) they have a phys­i­cal re­ac­tion so their whole body squirms and there’s some­thing so nice about be­ing greeted like that in the morn­ing.

“She’s di­vine.”
