The Voice 2013: Nate James blames Jessie for his exit!

Nate James (The Voice 2013 UK)

Axed The Voice UK star Nate James has said he wishes he didn't choose Jessie J!

The former MOBO nominee was a shock exit in last night's latest battle rounds, losing his fight to Lovelle Hill on Team Jessie.

Now out of the competition, Nate is regretting his choice from the blind auditions.

“Will, Danny and Tom said to Jessie that I sang better. In all honesty I should have probably chosen a different mentor," he said. “Looking at it now, Danny didn’t have a soul guy on his team.

“I think I’d have stood out a lot more as being one of the soulful ones on Danny’s team. Hindsight’s a wonderful thing.”

An unhappy Nate also blasted the song choice chosen by Jessie, No Air by Jordin Sparks ft Chris Brown.

“Jessie chose the song but it’s a girl’s song,” he complained. “When I found out I was like, ‘What is this? Lovelle featuring Nate James?’ ”

But while Nate isn't too happy with Jessie, he's not upset about losing to Lovelle.

He added to The Sun newspaper today: “Lovelle’s a phenomenal talent.”
