BGT star turned down by The Voice

Alice Fredenham auditioned for Britain's Got Talent and The Voice

Wannabe Alice Fredenham looks a world away from the shy hopeful with stage fright who featured on last week's Britain's Got Talent - when she appears on The Voice and talks about her "confidence".

The aspiring singer is seen on the rival BBC1 show, just a week after viewers saw her being told by Simon Cowell she had a voice like "liquid gold" on BGT.

And in contrast to her dressed-down, nervous slot on the ITV programme, she is seen talking about how she plays pub gigs and how her "confidence has grown" as she dresses in a tight skirt and vest.

The 28-year-old beauty therapist performs The Lady Is A Tramp but fails to get a single judge interested in her vocal talent.

It is a sharp contrast to her low key BGT appearance - recorded after The Voice - when she told of her battle with nerves and, wiping away tears, said: "Stage fright is something I've battled with. I'm just trying to take each time as it comes."

In The Voice, Fredenham says: "My confidence has grown loads in the last few years I think that just comes with age as well.

"I've done a few gigs in a few pubs around London and I've sung at a few weddings in my time, but singing to the audience today will be the biggest audience I've ever sung to."

But her performance is not enough to win over the coaches. Jessie J tells her: There's a huge difference in singing for singing, and singing to make people listen. It kind of just felt like I was in a jazz bar or in a restaurant, and someone was playing and you were singing."

Although she did not impress coach Danny O'Donoghue with his voice, he turns out to be an admirer of her looks. He tells her: "Stylistically for me I just felt it was a bit safe, that was the only reason I didn't turn around. By the way you're a gorgeous looking girl."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Responsibilities involving insurance, inheritances and taxes will command your attention. Don't put these matters off a moment longer. You may be busy with work and family, but these duties will never let up. If you continue to spend all of your energy on these things, you'll miss a golden opportunity. Ask colleagues and relatives for help with mundane errands while you focus on the long term financial future. If you don't protect your economic interests, nobody else will.More
