The Voice 2013 auditions see fewer singers than The X Factor

The XFactor 2013 UK

The Voice UK 2013 may boast about being just about the singing, but in truth us viewers see more singers on the X Factor.

Last Saturday night saw the return of The Voice to BBC one with a bumper 90 minutes long opener, but the show featured just 10 auditions.

Most of the time was filled up speaking about the back story of the contestants, as well as the antics of the show's coaches.

A lots of viewers claim it was too much about the panel and not enough about the singers.

One wrote on our Facebook page: "Been more about the coaches and it did my head in."

And another added: "It focused to much on the judges in the 1 hr 30 min show there was only a total of 10 singers."

And we can reveal that last year's X Factor opener actually featured more auditions than the first episode of The Voice last weekend.

16 hopefuls were seen on the X Factor, despite more than 30 minutes of the show being taken up by adverts and competitions.

Admittedly, some of the X Factor auditions included the likes of a tuneless Glaswegian Tulisa and a Prince lookalike, but viewers still saw more singing.

Fortunately it seems that Voice UK bosses have listened to the feedback and this week's show is set to see more talent, including the first duo of the new series.

The Voice 2013 airs tomorrow night on BBC One.
