Five of the 11 acts on tomorrow night's (31.03.12) episode of 'The Voice' have already been involved in the music business with a popstar from the 80s, three 'X Factor' rejects and a West End star all auditioning
Five of the 11 acts on tomorrow's (31.03.12) episode of 'The Voice' are recycled singers.
The BBC One talent show - which features will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones, Jessie J and Danny O'Donoghue as coaches - will screen auditions from an 80s pop star, three 'X Factor' failures and a West End actress.
Denise Pearson from 80s band Five Star will compete with Heshima Thompson, Barbara Bryceland and Vince Kidd - who have all previously been rejected from ITV1's 'X Factor' - and Kerry Ellis from musicals including 'Wicked' and 'My Fair Lady'.
Meanwhile, 'X Factor' boss Simon Cowell's former lover and close pal Sinitta - who has appeared in the Judges' Houses stage of the ITV1 show in previous years - is at the centre of a row between the BBC and ITV after she revealed she loves 'The Voice' and was even invited to a taping of the show.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "It's more dirty tricks. There's clearly no ceasefire between the two channels.
"Bosses told her, 'Give us a shout if you fancy bum-shuffling down to one of the live shows. Danny might even give you a cuddle."
Sinitta responded: "If they threw in a cuddle with Sir Tom Jones, I might consider it."
