Ana Matronic was "blown away" to have the opportunity to work on BBC One talent show 'The Voice'
Ana Matronic shocked to be asked to take part in 'The Voice'.
The Scissor Sisters singer has joined the BBC One show as a mentor with coach Jessie J and while she was surprised to be approached about the gig she was blown away" by the talent of the contestants.
She said: "I was blown away by the experience. When they first asked me to be a mentor with Jessie, I was amazed as I don't consider myself a singer. I'm a performer - but I was chuffed to bits to be asked anyway. I had a feeling the artists would
be good, as I had seen the American version, so when I came in to listen to Jessie's team, I found them amazing. They didn't need any help with their voices but I was able to give them some pointers on keeping calm during a performance and how to connect with an audience."
Ana connected with the contestants immediately because she felt they were kindred spirits.
She explained: "Yes, definitely. I'm a sap! Anybody who has talent, and where there is some
adversity to overcome, then they're the people I identify with."
