The Voice Judge Claims Adele Would Have Struggled On X-factor

Adele would not have gotten through 'X Factor' competition, so claims one of the coaches on new rival talent show 'The Voice.' Danny O'Donoghue will be one of the voice coaches on the reality contest that's so far swept through Australia and the U.S. to mass acclaim and is now set to touch down in Britain to provide the UK's version of 'X Factor' some real competition. The concept for the show sees judges with their backs to the auditioning contestant - being forced to make their decision through hearing their vocal alone.
Speaking to the UK's Metro newspaper, O'Donoghue commented, "We need to take the music industry by the scruff of the neck and get it back out of, 'Everybody needs to be in this mould and if you're not in this silhouette of that's what a pop star should be then you're not getting in'."
Turning his attention to the multi-million selling 23 year-old artist, he then said "There's artists out there that are breaking the mould. Adele's a perfect example. Six Grammys. If she'd have probably gone on one of those shows, maybe they would have taken her at face value and gone 'uh-oh'. Not on The Voice.'" Joining O'Donoghue as voice coaches on the show are Tom Jones, Jessie J and WILL.I.AM.
