J Marie Cooper is one of the first hopefuls to audition for The Voice UK panel in tomorrow’s opening show, and takes a big risk by performing Jessie J track Mamma Knows Best.
J Marie previously performed on Strictly Come Dancing, performing the same track to accompany Holly Valance’s Foxtrot.
But this time she was performing for some of the biggest names in the music industry, including US star Will.i.am and legend Sir Tom Jones.
And, of course, Jessie J.
Speaking about the experience, [tag]J Marie Cooper[/tag] described as “the most nerve wracking thing” she’s ever done.
She explained: “It’s strange ’cause when you’re normally singing, you get an instant reaction, but you don’t with [the coaches]. You want to know what they’re thinking.”
The Voice UK will start on BBC one tomorrow night, with J Marie amongst the wannabes hoping to get the coaches to turn around.
