Emily loses out on The Voice

Emmy J Mac.


SINGER Emmy J Mac lost out in her bid to win one of the biggest competitions in music, The Voice, on Sunday night.

But the Isle of Wight singer has already vowed to return with more music soon.

After a tense head-to-head battle with fellow contestant Aleks Josh, singing the James Morrison and Nelly Furtado song Broken Strings, judge Danny O'Donoghue chose her rival to go through to the next stage of the BBC One competition.

Fellow judge will i. am told Emmy, or Emily McGregor, that she had an amazing voice.

"You were walking around the stage like you owned it," he said.

Before announcing his decision Danny said: "Emmy J, I think you are further down the line than Aleks is, but I feel I still have a lot to show Aleks.

"I am going to base this decision on my role in this show, which is as a coach."

After her performance was broadcast on BBC One tonight, Emmy said on Twitter: "Well done Aleks Josh, although it didn't look like it, I was just disappointed, nothing personal.

"The Voice UK editors have made it seem as if I didn't like or respect Aleks Josh but that isn't the case. TV editing can be very clever.

"Onwards and Upwards, It's time to show the world the person I really am as The Voice UK didn't, a shame because I'm not bitter."

Responding to one fan she said: "Don't worry, I've got lots of new and exciting music in the pipeline! Keep your ears and eyes open! Thanks so much for your support."
