The Voice UK: Anne-Marie reveals which singers she regrets not turning for

3 months ago 17

Anne-Marie has been smashing it as a new coach on The Voice UK this series.

Joining Tom Jones, Olly Murs and Will.i.am, she’s already made her mark as she builds up her dream team of talent – but she’s quick to admit that she’s made some mistakes.

In fact, the 2002 hitmaker regrets not turning around for a couple of singers, after some female rock musicians blew the roof off during their auditions, but didn’t make it through.

Chatting to Metro.co.uk with KSI for their and Digital Farm Animals’ new hit Don’t Play, she admitted: ‘There’s been a couple of rock chicks that I wish I’d turned around for. I think it’s really hard when you’re sitting in that seat because you only have a certain amount of spaces each day.

‘You have 10 spaces obviously, but you want to spread it out, and you get really nervous about having too many people in one day, so sometimes that messes you up and you’re like, “Ah, I wanna turn but I haven’t got enough spaces.”

‘So I feel like I should have – and I will learn from that I think, because those rock chicks were so cool and they sounded incredible. So I need to fix up on that to be honest!’

Last week, Rebecca Watkins belted out a rendition of AC/DC’s Back In Black, while previously, Kim Jennett stunned with her version of R.E.M’s Losing My Religion.

While neither of them were chosen by the coaches, they definitely made their mark on viewers.

With Anne-Marie brightening up our TV screens every Saturday, KSI – real name Olajide ‘JJ’ Olatunji – has teased that he could also be set for more small screen work very soon.

He’s most at home on YouTube, but last year provided us with his insights on the best of British TV (and his ridiculously contagious laugh) on Celebrity Gogglebox.

Keeping tight-lipped, he explained: ‘I’m sure I’ll do more TV stuff in future. Who knows, I might have already recorded some TV stuff already!’

But for now, the pair are over the moon with their new track Don’t Play.

Speaking about the message behind the song, JJ mused: ‘There will be heartbreak in your life.

‘You’re not always gonna be on top of the moon all the time but ultimately things do get better. That’s just life, there’s gonna be ups and downs and you just have to ride the wave.’

‘Woah that was lovely!’ Anne Marie added. ‘That was beautiful! I think for me as well, beyond the message, I think the vibe of the track and it being old-school garage, I feel like garage is coming back and all the kids are loving it.

‘And also people who grew up listening to garage are vibing with it too so as long as it makes people happy and feel good, then that’s the aim.’

Don’t Play by Anne Marie, KSI and Digital Farm Animals is out now. The Voice returns tonight at 8:30pm on ITV.
