The Voice's Kevin Simm fears 'the end' of career

Liberty X's Kevin Simm fears "the end" of his career if he fails on 'The Voice'.

The 'Just A Little' hitmaker was shocked when all four judges - Paloma Faith, Boy George, will.i.am and Ricky Wilson - turned their chairs for him during the blind auditions but thinks he has got a tough round ahead as he prepares for the battles.

He admits: "It is pushing me to my limit. I put a lot of pressure on myself in these sort of situations because when you're out there trying to prove yourself all over again, it is just tough. I've come in from a band. I felt a major pressure on me. My blind audition was a big sort of gamble.

"I had this worrying thing that if I didn't get any turns, that may as well be the end of my singing career so getting the four was amazing. I'm pretty confident that Faith [his rival contestant] will not slip up so I think I do have to be on my game and if I did screw something up then there's a good chance it will be the end of it for me."

And Kevin suffered a setback as an illness caused him to struggle with his vocals in rehearsals for the show.

Speaking on tonight's episode, Paloma said: "Kevin wasn't able to give 100%. I hope that's not something that he does in the performance because as they say in the business, the show must go on."

'The Voice' continues tonight (05.03.16) at 7pm on BBC One.
