The Voice 2013: Cleo Higgins reckons she took down Nu Tarna!

Cleo Higgins

Cleo Higgins reckons she took down Nu Tarna in last night's battle on The Voice UK 2013.

Will.i.am backed Cleo over the duo after the trio's performance of Finally.

But what could have been an epic performance turned into a mess, with Jessie J saying the "mess" gave her a headache.

And both acts' rather horrid backstage attitudes has no doubt ruined any chance either ever had of winning.

Speaking after the show, Cleo admitted it was hard not to get too carried away.

”It’s a bit of a toughie. There’s a lot going on with the battles. It’s the most uncomfortable part of the show for me because you’re not just proving yourself, you’re proving yourself against who they are putting you up against," she said.

The former Cleopatra child star told Bang! Showbiz: "It’s like you’ve got to take people down without being too badass about it. I keep saying the battles are here and I’ve got to take someone down vocally.”

Cleo also confessed she wasn't all too keen on the song choice chosen by Will, but eventually got around to putting her spin on it.

She explained: It was not my most favourite song ever. I love it to listen to but to sing it I was a bit apprehensive.

"That was the scariest bit for me really. Taking a song like that and being able to put my stamp on it. I’m cool now though. I had plenty of time. I know what I was doing with it."

The Voice UK battles continue with round two tonight on BBC One from 7PM.
