Iron Maiden Singer Rejects TV Show Offer

(Gibson) Iron Maiden frontman and metal vocalist extraordinaire Bruce Dickinson has turned down the opportunity to be a judge on a television singing competition. The Sun reports that Dickinson was offered a spot on the judging panel of the U.K. version of The Voice, set to air on the BBC.

"That show sounds so crap and demeaning to everyone involved, I took great delight in turning the BBC down," he said. "The X Factor is appalling enough, it's no better than Opportunity Knocks."

The BBC is attempting to rival The X Factor with The Voice, which was a hit show this spring for NBC. On the U.S. edition, the judging panel was made up of Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. more on this story
