Axed contestant Aleks Josh was warned to change his song on 'The Voice' this week

Aleks Josh was warned to change his song on 'The Voice' this week.

The singer left the competition last night (20.05.12) and admitted producers had advised him against singing Jack Johnson's 'Better Together' - which was slammed by the coaches as "boring" - but his only regret is not choosing his own tracks earlier in the series.

He said: "If I had my time again, I'd change the two first performances. The BBC wanted me to sing a different song but I put my foot down and said I wanted to do it.

"One of the producers said, 'I don't think you should sing that song' and I said, 'I'd rather fall on my own sword than yours'."

Despite his upset at leaving the show, Aleks is happy with the amount of female attention it has brought him - though he wishes they were more interested in his singing.

He added to The Sun newspaper: "I think I've got about 57,000 followers on Twitter and about a 100 of them are boys.

"It's nice to have female attention. Sometimes they don't even care about my singing. I wish they would care but it's nice to get little compliments.

"It's nice they think fondly of me. Very fondly sometimes."
