Paloma Faith turned down 'The Voice' because she's too nice.
The quirky singer has revealed she was offered the chance to become a mentor on the TV talent show but she knew she wouldn't be able to cope with criticising the contestants.
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper: "Yes they did offer me 'The Voice' but I didn't think it was right.
"I don't like the idea of eliminating people because I don't feel confident enough about my own abilities to judge any body else."
Kylie Minogue accepted the chance to become a judge on the show after Jessie J left, and it has proven to be a great move by producers.
According to reports in The Sun newspaper, the 'I Should Be So Lucky' hitmaker has brought in an extra two million viewers for the current series and could be in line for a pay rise if she returns for another year.
A source said: "The Kylie effect is incredible - she's turned the show around.
"This could have been the final series but if the 'Kylie Effect' holds, it's a dead cert to come back.
"Thanks to her, it's finally looking like a serious rival to 'The X Factor.' "
