'The Voice' star Leah McFall is feeling the pressure ahead of the final this Saturday (22.06.13).
The pop hopeful is the favourite to win the talent show but she has been suffering from terrible nerves in the build-up to the BBC One programme and has been having problems in rehearsals, apparently breaking down in tears as she struggled to decide which three songs to perform.
To try and ease her fears, on Wednesday (19.06.13) her coach will.i.am flew Leah - whose cover of 'I Will Survive' is currently at number eight in the UK singles chart - out to Cannes to allow her to relax before the big night.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Leah is really feeling the weight of pressure on her shoulders. She and Will have also had real trouble deciding what songs she should sing and have changed tracks several times. It all seems to be getting too much for her and she is really struggling. There have been a few teary moments. Will has been really worried and decided to treat her by taking her with him in his jet to a private party he was DJing at in Cannes. It was a total surprise and Leah was thrilled."
Although Leah has a song in the charts, it doesn't look like she will be performing 'I Will Survive' in the final, a decision which has been reached between her and the Black Eyed Peas star.
The source added: "Despite 'I Will Survive' already being a big hit, it doesn't look like she will perform it in the final."
Leah is up against Matt Henry, Andrea Begley and Mike Ward in the final - presented by Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates.
