Axed Ruth-Ann Slates The Voice
Talent show reject blames bad editing for her departure...
The Voice on Sunday, has criticised the show and blamed bad editing for her departure.
The 18-year-old was sent home after a pitchy performance on Saturday's live show but claims many of the judges' comments were cut.
According to The Sun, Ruth-Ann said: "The comments of the judges play a big part in whether the public want to vote for you or not.
"In my blind audition and the battle round the last comments people saw of me were negative, but the judges had said positive things.
"I thought that was really unfair and didn't make any sense. It's unprofessional. They didn't show my full performances or my comments - everyone else had their comments shown."
The singer also claimed there were problems back stage, where her outfit was changed at the last minute, and said: "It was hectic. I hadn't eaten all day - two meals were cooked for me but I wasn't able to have them.
"All this stuff affected my performance."
Ruth-Ann continued her criticism, suggesting that people had told her their votes were not "getting through."
A BBC spokesman told the paper: "There were no reported issues. The vote was scrutinised and independently verified."
Former contestants J Marie Cooper, Ben Kelly and Emmy J Mac all criticised the show after being axed during the Battle Rounds.
