Simon Cowell has slammed critics who claimed Alice Fredenham faked her 'Britain's Got Talent' nerves.
The 28-year-old hopeful appeared super-confident when trying out for 'The Voice' in an episode which aired on Saturday (20.04.13), leading fans to speculate she feigned terror in order to garner support.
However, the music mogul believes her disastrous audition for the rival show - which was filmed first and saw none of the coaches turn round to choose her for the next round - made her lose confidence.
He tweeted: "Alice fredenham on the voice tonight. Confident and hopeful. Nobody turned round.
"Alice on bgt. She simply lost her confidence after that reaction and she did sound better on bgt
"But to call her a fake is unfair. I was there. She was terrified. And now I understand why. (sic)"
One Twitter user had slammed Alice, writing: "Alice Fredenham was a completely different person on 'The Voice' to what she was on 'BGT'."
During her audition for 'The Voice', Danny O'Donoghue told Alice her performance was "a bit safe".
Fellow coach Jessie J added: "It just felt like I was in a jazz bar or a restaurant and someone was playing and you were singing."
