Danny O'Donoghue has slammed 'The Voice' winner Leanne Mitchell, claiming she shouldn't have won because she is not an exciting artist
Danny O'Donoghue has slammed 'The Voice' winner Leanne Mitchell.
The Script frontman - whose act Bo Bruce lost out to the singer in the final of the show - says she wasn't an exciting artist, though he admitted neither his contestant or fellow finalists Tyler James and Vince Kidd could match her singing abilities.
Asked if he was disappointed that Leanne's debut single 'Run To You' failed to make the UK top 40 singles chart, he told Gigwise: "She wasn't on my team so I can't feel that much disappointment. She won the show, you know, in the final she was technically the best singer. Was she technically the best artist? No. But that's just my opinion.
"She was definitely the best singer on the night, but it was unfortunate that other people didn't get a look in, ones that would have suited pop music better."
Danny doesn't believe fans would be willing to pay to see Leanne in concert and found the show "hard" because more exciting talents were lost earlier in the process.
He added: "She's got an amazing voice, but I couldn't see her exciting 80,000 people for an hour and a half. There were people like that on the show, but they got voted off, and it's quite hard."
