The Voice viewers have accused the show of staging the judges' spontaneous performances. Viewers at home are often treated to spur of the moment songs from Tom Jones, Olly Murs, Will.i.am and Jennifer Hudson in between the blind auditions. However, when J.Hud begun belting out Andy Williams' The Impossible Dream during this week's show, some fans were convinced that her performance may not have been as random as she wanted them to believe. While she called over to the band and asked them to play along with her, fans flocked to suggest the moment seemed a little too put together. Alongside a string of gasping emojis, one viewer sarcastically wrote: "OMG more spontaneous singing". Meanwhile, another added: "Well that wasn’t rehearsed at all. #TheVoiceUK".

He’d recently lost his parents but had a wife he loved, a child he adored and a new … [Read more...] about Talk to yourself with kindness… and teach the voice in your head to sing
