Jessie J and Sir Tom Jones have a huge showdown on this week's episode of 'The Voice', falling out twice over the course of the battle round
Jessie J and Sir Tom Jones have a huge showdown on this week's episode of 'The Voice'.
The rival judges face off against each other twice during Saturday's (11.05.13) episode, first when Tom riles Jessie with his decision to axe one of his singers.
Jessie dumbfoundedly retorts: "What?" when Tom gives his shock announcement, to which the 72-year-old star replies: "I can see something the other coaches can't."
The pair then clash again when two of Jessie's acts both sing Katy Perry's'Alien'.
Tom enrages her by saying: "They are very similar in the way they sing."
The arguments are not confident to the judges either, as two of will.i.am's acts - Cleo Higgins and duo Nu-Tarna - fall out when rehearsing Ce Ce Peniston's 'Finally' for the battle round.
Cleo accuses Nu Tarna's Kelly Marie Smith of "having a habit of singing over everything."
will.i.am tells them: "Nu-Tarna and Cleo sound like pterodactyls coming from a fricking volcano."
However, the show is not all fall-outs, as fourth judge Danny O'Donoghue comforts former 'Hollyoaks' actress Alice Barlow when she wells up during her rehearsals for the battle round.
Alice is up against visually-impaired Andrea Begley for a rendition of Birdy's 'People Help The People', but after rehearsals, Alice says: "Andrea's voice is so pure and innocent. I'm not used to showing who I am in front of millions of people."
Turning to Danny with tears in her eyes, she tells him: "Andrea is so amazing at being able to do it with such feeling. I struggle because I'm used to putting on a persona and not being me."
