Deniece Pearson - The Voice UK
The Voice UK features a unique spin on other singing contests - coaches Sir Tom Jones, Jessie J, will.i.am and Danny O'Donoghue don't get to see the performer until they make their final decision. So what happened this week?
Deniece Pearson appeared with her siblings in family band, Five Star. In the 1980s they were, at one point, touted as 'the British Jackson 5' thanks to the fact that there were five of them, and they sang and danced. Deniece gave a rendition of Christina Aguilera's Fighter. Tom Jones was eventually won over. "The thing that hit me was the tone and the power," he said as he welcomed Deniece onto his team.

I don't get the point of the show at all....the judges are Tom Jones(too old),Jessy J(been in the business 5 minutes)Danny(I don't know who he is)and Will i am(the only one that seems to know what he wants).So what happens now when the acts have passed their auditions?
I find that after all the hype surrounding the show it is boring...sorry but that's my opinion!
you see, the only people who judge the the singers on their voice alone is the 4 judges and that's only during the auditions. as soon as they turn around it's back to the x-factor format.
the way the judges fight over the contestants, the name dropping, is just cringe worthy.
But most importnatly, we the audiende, the people who will lift up the phone to vote, we are denied the novelty of judging the contestants on their voice alone because before they sing we still have to endure their sob storys. I thought that was the point of the voice, No dramatic sob stories but they are even more emotional and OTT than on the xfactor!
another thing is, have you noticed how many contestant on The voice have either been in a chart topping band, on the west end stage or in another BBC production before?
mmmmh, I think the BBC is controlling things again.
The Voice leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Can't wait for the xfactor to come back.
Some of the things you say or are going to say are just repeats of last years comments, so lets try and guess what they are.
- Another year and another show featuring people trying break into show biz. Absolutely nothing wrong with that.
- It is yet another spin off from POp Idol / X Factor or whatever, Absolutely nothing wrong with that either.
- It all about making money? Well it is a business and that's what businesses do. In these hard times it is great that there exists businesses that do.
- She is a has been who should have stayed at home. - She has done that, but now wants to come back, absolutely nothing wrong with that.
This is simple, so listen carefully: You don't have to watch it. But you do, so stop complaining it was your choice. They cannot all be great singers, but even if they don't make it, they gave it a try. Some may even make it at a lower level and be happy with that.
Why do so many of you have nothing in your lives but the ability to criticise others? And some of you may grow up one day and God Forbid, hold a responsible Job? (Shudders at the thought?)
I think you should look in a dictionary to check whether you really meant MOURNING , LOL.
So, according to you we should all watch the programme and have no opinion at all about the singers. Surely that's the point of the programme. That's what the judges are doing as well.
We don't have to be wannabe singers to have an opinion or to know which acts are good and which aren't.
In my opinion Deniece Pearson ( an old has been who should've stayed home ) wasn't very good and much better singers were 'not wanted' by the judges. Well not wanted at the time, but will.i.am has now tried to sign one of the 'turned down' singers to his own record label . This show is all about making money ( just like Simon Cowell's shows) , & nothing else.
Five Star received some unwarranted bad press at the height of their success (as was common with some of the red tops against popular artists of the day). This was the beginning of their downfall. I met them whilst working at Capital Radio and they were delightful, open and warm and good fun too. I hope this works out for her. People don't forget good souls nor great talent and she is still has age on her side.
This programme knock spots off the other talent shows. It is slick and the judges know what they are talking about. I wish they would stop the razzamatazz showy sections as it looks old and copyist. I definitely won't get hooked but it's worth turning on just to help with the ratings against the other one.
Deneise was the heart of Five star and should have been a big Brittish star (like janet jackson ) after they split up. She not only sings but writes songs too. Check out her video on You Tube called 'Here I am' it is stunning.
Just cos you are a bit older or your career has fell off a bit does not mean you should not be allowed a second chance, I applaud her for having the courage to take on this show, it must be quite hard for her in light of the past success she had. I wish her well xx
deniece pearson maybe you are thinking mmmm i can make more money to pay for the life style i want from this, like i had before,
when you suggested it to your kids they probably said shut up mum are you mad, no thanks we don't need that crap thanks, we done ok out of it before, we are free to walk the streets and be normal, byeeeeee,
and danny can you stop saying to your contestants, you think you found a winner,
I don't get the point of the show at all....the judges are Tom Jones(too old),Jessy J(been in the business 5 minutes)You obviously know little of the child prodigy from America if you think she has only been in the business 5 minutes.
