The Voice 2014: Christina Marie not worried about going live

Christina Marie (The Voice 2014)

The Voice 2014 UK contestant Christina Marie has played down the live shows.

Speaking ahead of Saturday night's quarter final, the singer didn't really get all the fuss over singing live

"This is the thing - we've already done this. Everyone's going, 'It's live, what if you fall over or something?'" she said, "But what you don't understand, the slips and trips and stuff, okay, you can't edit that out because it's live, but with knockouts, blinds and battles you only get one shot anyway.

"You can't start again. So it's exactly the same. We're going to be on stage, in a room, with the coaches - who we know now and we're not scared of anymore - and a room full of people.

"So as long as we don't think, 'Oh my gosh, everyone's watching at home, oh my gosh', we'll be alright."

Her coach Ricky however seemed to be far more excited about going live, telling DigitalSpy: "This is what it's ramping up to! This is the most exciting bit.

"I think people are going to be terrified not to watch the show because of missing out, because this is the birth of something incredible. I know that will, Tom and Kylie are excited about their three - and if they're even half as excited about their teams as I'm excited about mine, it's going to be mindblowing."

Going into the live shows and Christina is the favourite to win the series for Team Ricky.

Sally Barker finds herself positioned in second spot with odds of 7/2, whilst former favourite Rachael O'Connor has slipped down the betting to 5/1.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "It's all change at the top of the market and after making Ricky's final three the money suggests the competition is Christina's to lose."
