Brian May has launched an attack on "vile" talent show 'The Voice'.
The Queen guitarist has slammed the BBC singing contest - which is co-hosted by Reggie Yates and Holly Willoughby, and features pop stars Sir Tom Jones, Danny O'Donoghue, will.i.am and Jessie J on the coaching panel - as "dull, dumb and depressing" and claims the programme makes him feel sick.
In a rant on his website, he wrote: "Sorry, hate to be negative but The Voice is the dullest, dumbest, most depressing show on TV. It's the ultimate insult to music and to performers.
"Every time I catch a glimpse of young singers busting their guts trying to win somebody's attention, who is rudely sitting with their back to them... I feel sick."
The 65-year-old rocker has called for an end to the show, and admits seeing 'Delilah' legend Tom having such a prominent role on the programme makes him feel uncomfortable for the Welsh star.
He added: "I hate seeing the great Tom Jones shoehorned into this scenario.
"I hope this vile show dies a natural death very soon."
