The Voice Danny Blames Leanne Mitchell For Failure
Talent show coach says last year's winner didn't work hard enough...
The Voice coach Danny O'Donoghue has declared that last year's winner Leanne Mitchell only has herself to blame for her failure to make it as a pop star.
The Script frontman spoke out in an interview with The Sun, when asked why he thought Leanne had only sold 500 copies of her album.
He replied: "That's not my fault, that's not the show's fault, that's not the BBC's fault, that's just her fault. You can take an artist like that and question their work ethic.
"I was told by Tom Jones, and by the label as well, that Leanne just did not want to work as hard as you have to work to be a popstar.
"She wanted to come on a show and win a singing contest. That's good for her, because she won the show.
"But it's not good for the premise of the show."
Four more contestants were eliminated from this year's show last night, leaving just eight for the semi-finals.
