Jessie J accused of fixing The VoiceJessie J and Danny O’Donoghue have come under fire for allegedly rigging the outcome of The Voice.

According to reports the two judges decided before filming how they would vote on Saturday night’s show.

During the next round of the ‘Battles’ viewers saw Jessie, 25, deciding between her two acts Letitia Grant Brown and Alex Buchanan. However it appears that she had already arranged with Danny that he would take Alex to be part of his team.

A source said: ‘Jessie took Danny to one side before the show and said she preferred Letitia’s voice, but didn’t want to see Alex leave. So the pair agreed she would take Letitia through and Danny would save Alex.’

The insider also added: ‘Viewers were led to believe Jessie was facing a decision between the artists based on her battle, but it was already a done deal. It makes a mockery of the idea that a singer’s fate hands on how they perform on the night.’

And it’s not just the judges who are proving to be a headache for BBC bosses. The Voice is also facing plummeting ratings with Saturday nights show bringing in 1.5 million less viewers than the week before.
