As the show prepares to move over to ITV next year, producers are doing everything they can to rake in viewers.

Last year's Voice contestants

In a bid to keep up with their competitors, the show bosses are even selecting rejects from The X Factor to audition for the show. And it’s been reported that their first choice for audition is former contestant Josh Daniel.

Josh, 22, starred on last year’s X Factor and was an early favourite to win when he made judges Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versing blub when he serenaded them with his version of Labrinth’s Jealous in his first audition.

However he faced an early exit when judge Nick Grimshaw gave him the boot at Judges’ Houses, opting instead of Che Chesterman, Mason Noise and Seann Miley Moore.

Simon might be kicking himself if Josh manages to win The Voice a success story. The show, whose past judges have included Rita Ora and Kylie Minogue, has peaked at number six in the charts but now it’s moving over to ITV they’re determined to find a star.

Nick ditched Josh last year

Sadly, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.

A source told The Sun, “He's spent the last 6 months holed up in the studio both in the UK and in America where he has been working with top secret names - he is flattered to be asked to take part in The Voice also but it's not one for him.

“He's not keen despite being guaranteed to be fast tracked through the audition process and has decided to decline their invitation as in addition to working on his debut album he's also been drafted in to write for some other artists as well due to his strong contacts and affiliations with major players in the industry.”
