"Yeah after the voting starts, in the USA at least, you have to think in terms of who teenaged girls would vote for"

I can't imagine the winner of the Voice in the UK last year had much of a teenage girl fan base. The winning judge was Tom Jones rather than Jessie J or Will I Am or the other young guy - and the winning act just wasn't a teen idol as such. This has happened before on similar shows like PopIdol/X Factor when the likes of Steve Bernstein and Michelle McManus have won. Neither of those were ever going to sell much to a teenage girl audience. The producers of the shows right enough must love it if someone who can sell to a teenage audience wins rather than people who are going to get voted for by an older audience who often doesn't then go on to slavishly buy the music product itself.
