The Voice’s Sir Tom Jones struggled to find the perfect singer to fill the last spot on his team earlier this year. While Olly Murs, will.i.am and Anne-Marie picked their last contestant one-by-one, the Welsh crooner seemed torn over who deserved the coveted spot on his team. However, speaking to Express.co.uk and other press, Anne-Marie revealed she “worried” about her co-star and feared she would be to blame if Tom was unhappy with his final choices.
The hit-maker was asked her thoughts on Tom struggling to choose his last singer during the blind auditions.
Anne-Marie remarked: “That last space is probably the hardest one because you want to wait for someone but you’re like, ‘Have all the good ones gone?
“You’re in this like space of complete panic, basically. Luckily for me. I waited and got a perfect person.
“But I get worried for the other coaches because I don’t want them to panic and pick someone, because of the reason I just said.”

“So I’m like telling them to wait and then I get worried that I’ve said that because if they get someone rubbish then it’s my fault so really I should just shut up.”
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Tom explained why he found filling the last spot on this team so difficult.
“The closer you get towards the end when we’ve got a couple of spots left you get more picky,” he said.
“We say that anyway on the show, and it’s a shame that they didn’t come on earlier in the Blind Auditions.
“They can’t all come on earlier, of course, you’ve got to spread it out but it’s a shame for some of them that come up later because we get we do get picky.”
Meanwhile, Anne-Marie explained she found it difficult to watch The Voice auditions back.
Anne-Marie continued: “Honestly when you’re sitting in that chair and you can’t see them, you don’t understand how different it is to when you look at them.
“There’s been times where I’ve watched the show back and I’m like ‘Why did I not turn for that person?’”

“But that’s because I can see them and it makes sense in my head, who they are as a person, how they’re performing, what they’re doing,” she said.
“Whereas when you’re just listening purely to the voice they could do one tiny little thing that doesn’t really sit well with you and that’s it.”
The hit-maker explained she decided on a process that would help her chose the singers for her team.
“Also, you do so many blind auditions and you only have 10 spaces, so it’s really hard,” the singer said.
“In my head, I was like, ‘I’m going to choose two singers per her audition day,’” Anne-Marie explained.
“That was what I had in my head so when I had two singers already I was like, ‘I can’t turn again.
“So, it’s really hard, and I do feel really bad for some people because I’ve watched it back and I’m like ‘Wow they’re amazing how did I not turn or how did I turn for that person and not that person?’”
The Voice UK continues on ITV on Saturday at 8.30pm.
