Jessie J and will.i.am had a furious row at the first 'Voice' auditions.
The 'Domino' hitmaker was furious with her fellow panellist after he tried to stop a contestant from joining her team.
Both Jessie and The Script singer Danny O'Donoghue had turned their chairs around, and the 'Price Tag' star was livid when will jumped in to urge the auditionee to join Danny's team.
Jessie fumed: "He never wants people to pick me, just so you know."
Fellow judge Sir Tom Jones intervened to try to calm the situation after the audition, but Jessie told him: "I think it's unfair to influence the artists on their decision."
The 'Delilah' hitmaker advised her "not to worry" about it but to keep fighting her corner.
A show source told The Sun newspaper: "Matters got heated. Jessie is already pitched against will and Danny with the whole series still to come."
Meanwhile, online trailers for the new series of 'The Voice' - which begins on Saturday (30.03.13) - have caught the interest of 'X Factor' workers, as they claim the promo clips, which are shot from the perspective of a hopeful backstage as they walk out to face the judges, are similar to ones they filmed for the 2010 series of the ITV show.
A source said: "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but you'd think they could have come up with something new instead of using our idea."
However, a 'Voice' source hit back, saying: "They are online clips we cut to showcase the singing, without showing who is auditioning."
