In tonight’s episode of The Voice, new coach Kylie Minogue will become tearful as the ramifications of the decisions she and fellow coaches Sir Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Ricky Wilson make on the lives of the wannabes who’ve tried out for the show…
We’re set to see Kylie weep as she tells one hopeful, “That was so moving. I need to hug you. Don’t beat yourself up.”
As the lad also burst into tears – after evidently fluffing his performance – she told him “We all mess up. I messed up not turning for you.”
Later on, having sent the dejected singer home, she’s heard saying, “I feel emotionally pummelled.”
However, other singers are set to do a whole lot better, and as we reported last night, former Emmerdale star Kelsey-Beth Crossley wows the coaches with her power-house voice.
Speaking to The Sun’s TV Biz about trying out for the show, Kelsey said, “I’ve always sung and after I left Emmerdale I got gigs.”
However, she went on to explain that she felt bullied into losing weight after receiving abuse from trolls on Twitter.
She said, “I will admit losing weight was a massive confidence boost to me. I feel healthier, sexier and I have more energy.”
The paper adds, “Kelsey-Beth makes no secret she is hoping that her idol Kylie spins her chair around for her.”
As we reported recently, coach Will.i.am told us that several of this year’s wannabes turned up to audition with the express intention of trying to get into Team Kylie.
But back to Kelsey, and she said of her hopes that she impresses the Princess of pop, “We are soap stars who sing. She knows what she’s talking about.”
Also performing tonight will be 21 year old Londoner Miles Anthony, Irish singer Mairead Conlon and jazz lover singer May Williams.
The Voice is on BBC One at 7pm, but for now, here’s a reminder of the coaches performing together…
