The Voice 2014 judges: Kylie Minogue accused of having favourites!

Kylie Minogue (The Voice 2014)

Kylie Minogue has been accused of having favourites on The Voice 2014.

Steven Alexander, who last night performed against Leo Ihenacho in the battle rounds on Team Kylie, claimed he was always going to lose the fight.

“It was difficult competing against Leo," Steven told the Daily Mirror newspaper today. “He’s a big flirt so he was always going to have Kylie’s vote from that side of things. That was a bit off-putting."

However he added: “But seeing them all over each other drove me on.”

While Steven did still lose his battle he was saved by Sir Tom Jones and went through to the knockouts stage as part of the Welsh crooner's team.

Meanwhile Leo has said that working with Kylie has been tough going for him as well because of all the apparent flirting!

“The thing with Kylie is that she always gets stuck in and sometimes she forgets about coaching and just wants to have fun," Leo explained. “I’ll be rehearsing a song and there she is, dancing away and shaking her ass and I’m thinking, ‘This is for me. Kylie is dancing like that for me’.

“But then, because I’m thinking about that, my brain frazzles and I lose concentration. How could I just ignore it? I’ve fancied her for ages.”
