Annie Lennox Turns Down The Voice


Annie Lennox has turned down an offer to be a new judge on The Voice, according to reports.

The Eurythmics star was asked to take a judging role to help rescue the beleaguered BBC show, which saw its ratings fall massively after a series of missteps at the end of the first series.

Lennox's record company is Universal, the BBC’s partner on the show, and show bosses were hopeful she would agree to appear.

It''s rumoured that she would've replaced Tom Jones, who may not return for a second series.

However, The Mirror quotes a source close to the 'Sweet Dreams' singer, who wowed fans at the Olympic closing ceremony, as saying: “Annie has been vocal in the past about her distaste for talent shows so it would have been somewhat hypocritical to take part.”

Good on Annie, not for turning down the show, which could probably do with a bit of Annie-mal magic, but for sticking to her guns.

It's not certain if any of last series' other judges, will.iam, Jessie J and Danny O'Donoghue will return.

However perhaps it's not such a good idea for Annie to avoid hypocrisy, as the show's next target is reportedly Lulu.

Dang Annie Lennox and her morals!
