Despite Chris’ certainty about Team Guy’s future on the show, he is less knowledgeable about the other coaches including close friend Delta Goodrem.
Although the father-of-one did agree it would be quite a change if the Solid Gold singer didn’t come back given she’s been involved from the first season, Chris admitted of her return: “No idea actually – I don’t know! I’ve got a gig with Delta in a week or two so I’ll ask her then but nah, not too sure.”
While Delta has been a long-time mentor on The Voice, kicking off her role in the inaugural Aussie season back in 2012, Guy was a later addition.
He joined in season eight, replacing Joe Jonas, and remained for season nine which aired earlier this year and previously admitted he and Delta have "had conversations" with producers about returning in 2021.
Guy shot to fame after winning Australian Idol way back in 2003 and brother Chris travelled a similar path, nabbing victory on The Voice in July’s grand finale.
And Chris divulged he wouldn’t rule out joining his brother on the new-look Voice should Channel Seven ultimately decide to give current coaches Boy George, Kelly Rowland and Delta the flick.
“Absolutely!” he replied when asked if he would say yes to the opportunity. “I loved the experience and I owe a great deal to [The Voice] as well so I’d be all for that.”
Chris added that he also wouldn’t necessarily say no to joining the Australian Idol reboot when it’s back on screens in 2022.
“I don't even know how that would work,” he laughed. “I love that though. I’ve been a vocal coach and mentor, that’s one of my day jobs for the last 10 or so years, so that whole thing I would love to do.”
Meanwhile, it’s been a busy week for another of the Sebastian brothers, Jeremy, whose wife is currently heavily pregnant.
“My younger brother is having a baby tomorrow,” Chris spilled.
“So Christmas this year is going to be an extra special one. I’ve got an eight-month old [daughter Ava] so it’s her first Christmas. And then yeah, Jeremy my younger brother will have a baby tomorrow. That will be the sixth grandchild for Mum and Dad.”
Chris himself has also had his hands full since his Voice victory. As well as welcoming a daughter, he’s been performing in a COVID-safe tour, has bought a house and is set to release a new single and album at the end of the year.
He is also teaming up with Johnny Ruffo and Natalie Bassingwaithe for Best & Less’ Bestest Virtual Christmas Carols which will stream via the brand's Instagram page.
The virtual Christmas event will be held on Sunday December 6 at 6.30pm in support of children’s charity The Smith Family.
“It’s definitely going to be a unique experience. Like in anything virtual, you’ve got to create your own atmosphere, you’ve got to create your own energy and all that kind of stuff but I feel like, especially after The Voice, having done it with no crowds and there’s no audience there, I feel like I’ve really figured out how to do that,” Chris said.
“I’ve done so many virtual events now since the show’s finished that I still feel really good about it, I still feel like I’m performing so hopefully that comes across to everyone watching at home.”
