McElderry: The Voice is fantastic
X Factor winner Joe McElderry has admitted he is a big fan of rival show The Voice.
The Climb singer won ITV's singing contest in 2009, but told Heat magazine that he loves the BBC One programme.
When Joe, 21, was asked by the magazine if he watched The Voice, he said: "I love it. The blind auditions are fantastic - and scary.
"Walking out to silence and singing to four chairs... the acts have guts on that show."
But the series six winner still takes an interest in The X Factor, saying he would love to see Beyonce on the judging panel.
"That'd be pretty amazing. But I know Sharon Osbourne's rumoured to be coming back," he said.
"If Sharon gets the job, I think she'll really make an impact. I want to see her throwing water in Louis Walsh's face again."
The singer confirmed recently that he will be duetting with Dionne Warwick to mark this year's World Hunger Day on May 28.
Joe is also working on his fifth studio album, which is set to feature dance tracks.
He told the Daily Star: "I'm doing some more uptempo dance tracks which are really commercial and pop heavy."
