As we reported yesterday, singer Ryan O’Shaughnessy – who last night wowed the judges and the audience with his own song, No Name on BGT – could be in some trouble over the fact that he signed up for both BGT and The Voice of Ireland…
However, as we saw, Ryan sailed through his audition, and has apparently continued to impress on the show, and is therefore likely to make the live semi-finals, but only if he is “freed” by bosses at The Voice.
The Daily Star reports that Ryan said, “I was a bit naive signing with The Voice – in hindsight I should have done things differently.
“I never imagined I would get this far on either show. And now there’s no way around the contract. I’ll be careful what I sign in the future.
“I’m trying to sort it out legally so they release me to compete on Britain’s Got Talent…
“It will be terrible for me if they don’t. I’m trying to be positive about it.”
He added, “I applied for Britain’s Got Talent early on because I was songwriting. And my mum put me in for The Voice.
“I ended up doing well on both shows. So it’s two positives becoming a bit of a negative.
“The Voice have the option to sign me to their label, like they do with all the finalists.”
So with just a few weeks before the BGT begins its live shows, Ryan has sought legal advice as to what he should do next.
He added, “Britain’s Got Talent is the show I want to do – not The Voice.
“Britain’s Got Talent has a bigger following so that would be better for my career.”
