The Voice Fans Breath A Sigh Of Relief As Danny O'Donoghue Leaves The Show

The only thing worse than Jessie J’s attention seeking antics on BBC’s flailing talent show franchise, The Voice, is Danny O’Donoghue’s incessant showing off. So 'O’Donoghue quits The Voice' will have come as a welcome headline, and builds upon the positive news that Jessie-J stepped down, too.

The other two, Will.i.am and Tom Jones aren’t bad; the legendary Welsh singer must be wondering exactly what he’s doing, but when he checks his bank statement, he’ll soon remember.

"I gave it my heart and soul and couldn't be more proud of the show," O’Donoghue said in a statement. BBC controller Mark Linsey said O'Donoghue was "an absolute star" but understands he has to focus on his music career. "The Voice coaches are all current music stars with recording and touring careers to manage alongside the show and we know this can be difficult to juggle," he added.

This isn’t entirely good news, though. With Danny concentrating on his music, there will be more music from Danny. And that’s never a good thing. Universally known as one of the worst bands ever, The Script might even make an unwelcome return. "My focus will be on The Script moving forward as we are about to embark on the most important part of our career as a band," O'Donoghue said.

Well that confirms that then. To be fair to The Script, they were popular, but to quote the great man (Super Hans from Peep Show), “People like Coldplay and voted for the Nazis…

You can’t trust people.”

This is another BS treatement coming from a magazine that bashes the guys just for the sake of selling. "universally known as one of the worse bands ever"? where did you see that ? they are one of the most loved bands around the world but very underrated by ppl like you. Their music influences a whole generation and your article only pleases your bosses. The Script win.

Well this is a load of shit & bollocks! This article is based on no fact what so ever! The Script doesn't have to *return* they never left! In fact they are in full flow of a VERY succesful & sold out world tour i might add! Sold out cos they are Brilliant musicians who make amazing music from the heart! And some of the most genuine and loviest people i ever met! Worst band ever my arse!!

This 'article' is so offensive, biased, factually incorrect, poorly written/typed, etc. How this was ever allowed to be published is beyond me. To the author, do some research and actually bother to get to know Danny, Glen, Mark, Ben, Rodney etc before you go judging them and their amazing music. They are some of the best people I know. It's highly unfair to judge Danny solely on his appearance on The Voice, and especially with the pre-live shows the footage is edited to put across a particular view of the coaches, don't get sucked in to the BBC's opinion on Danny, grow a pair and learn to make a fair judgement / don't judge people you don't know.
