SYDNEY, NSW – In an unexpected turn of events, the government has revealed its secret weapon in the ongoing campaign for a vital voice referendum: a special season of “The Voice” that will exclusively feature performances of Yothu Yindi’s “Treaty” or Christine Anu’s “My Island Home.” With this audacious plan, they hope to win the hearts and minds of the nation and secure overwhelming support for the historic referendum.

The popular reality TV show, known for its entertaining performances and heated judge banter, is set to take a patriotic turn. Contestants will be given a choice between two iconic Australian songs that have become synonymous with Indigenous culture. Gone are the days of diverse musical styles and boundary-pushing performances; the new season will focus solely on these two cherished classics.

Prime Minister Albanese himself made the grand announcement, exclaiming, “We are committed to embracing the unique aspects of our cultural heritage. What better way to showcase the incredible talent in our nation than by limiting their song choices to just two options? It’s a win-win situation.”

The panel of celebrity judges will consist of renowned figures from the Australian music industry. Rumour has it that Midnight Oil’s Peter Garrett, known for his passionate activism, is on board. The other seats will be occupied by Christine Anu herself and Bono from U2 known for his political activism. NBA star and voice proponent Shaquille O’Neal was suggested as a celebrity judge, but his schedule won’t allow him to participate.

The move has sparked both excitement and skepticism across the country. While some applaud the government’s effort to shine a spotlight on these iconic songs, others question the decision to restrict contestants’ choices. Critics argue that such limitations might stifle artistic expression and turn the show into a one-note spectacle and that perhaps only allowing Indigenous contestants would be a better plan.

However, the government remains undeterred, emphasising the importance of these songs in bridging cultural gaps and raising awareness about Indigenous issues. They believe that hearing these tunes repeatedly will inspire viewers to join the voice referendum cause and appreciate the rich tapestry of Indigenous heritage.

As a result of this endeavour, experts predict a significant spike in karaoke sessions, as everyday Australians desperately try to perfect their renditions of “Treaty” and “My Island Home.” Additionally, memorabilia sales for both Yothu Yindi and Christine Anu are expected to skyrocket, with T-shirts, coffee mugs, and bumper stickers becoming the new must-haves for the politically conscious.

Whether or not this unprecedented season of “The Voice” achieves its desired outcome, there is no denying the government’s commitment to creativity in pursuing its agenda. With Australia’s future hanging in the balance, the airwaves will be filled with the unmistakable sounds of Yothu Yindi and Christine Anu, inspiring viewers to sing along and think about how they will vote.
