Magne turns down The Voice offer

Magne was recently approached by TV2, asking him to reprise his role as mentor on a second season of The Voice in Norway.

But he turned down the offer:

“I told them that my obligations were to the talents that I believe in, and that I will try to keep what I promised: doing my best to help them build a career in music.

So it was not an option for me to do another season before I’ve given it a real try. I don’t want to sit there and make promises to new contestants, without having followed through on my plans for the previous ones”, Magne tells Dagbladet.

Fellow The Voice mentor Sondre Lerche has also said he’s not interested in doing another season.

Instead of The Voice, TV2 will air a new season of Norwegian Idol next spring, although the channel claims this had nothing to do with Magne and Sondre’s decision.
