James Arthur On Auditioning For The Voice UK: "I Liked Nothing About It!"

8 October 2013, 12:28

The 'You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You' star says he disliked the show when he auditioned two years ago.

James Arthur says he got down to the final 200 on The Voice UK in the past but liked "nothing about it" and didn't enjoy his time with the reality TV show.

The 'Impossible' singer has exclusively revealed to Capital that he didn't like the structure of the show, a rival to fellow talent show The X Factor UK, which he went on to win in 2012.

"Well I went to do it, well I got asked to come down, I made the last 200," James revealed on Capital Breakfast this week. "But it was just very apparent to me that they were just had had all these ex-TV stars that they had already decided on going through.

"How many of them was there? It was a bit of a fix for me," he claimed. "My heart wasn't in it, I didn't like the structure of it, I don't like the producers, I liked nothing about it.

"So I went and won a bigger show!" James added.

Earlier this week the Uk singer-songwriter announced plans to embark on a 20-date tour of the UK in January 2014.

James Arthur releases his self-titled debut album on 4th November.
