The Voice 2014 judges: Kylie Minogue wanted to quit after blind auditions

Kylie Minogue (The Voice UK)

The Voice UK star Kylie Minogue has admitted she felt like quitting the show after the blind auditions.

The pintsize popstar joined the show this year as a new coach but confessed it was harder going than she imagined.

While Kylie loved the audition stages, she found the battle rounds and knockouts a lot tougher.

Based on the ratings from the first two series, it sounds like most viewers.

"It can get you down a bit trying to think of ways to say no because no one wants to say that," Kylie said. “The fun bits of being a coach are really fun but during the not fun bits you just don’t want to be there.”

Speaking at an exclusive gig at Spotify last week, Kylie explained how show bosses have to persuade her that the contestants were treated well.

"The BBC assured me they have never had complaints from any of the contestants," she told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper. “They really get taken care of so well, whether they go through or they don’t. They leave with a lot of experience.”

Bosses are said to be keen to get Kylie back on next year's panel - even reportedly offering her a £250,000 pay rise - but she's not so sure just yet about returning.

The Aussie singer added: "It’s intense. You think you’re just never going to come up for air again because the days are very long.

"And for someone who doesn’t really like decision-making, all day is decision-making.”

The Voice 2014 blind auditions conclude next weekend on BBC One.
