Burntwood singer ready for next stage of his career after exit from The Voice

A Burntwood rock singer has said he will focus on the next stage of his career after being knocked out of The Voice.

Mitchel Emms wowed the judges with his rendition of Radioactive in the live BBC show on Friday night.

But despite positive comments, it wasn’t enough to save him as he lost out in the public vote.

However, he has reassured fans that the show must go on.

“I am feeling such ultimate relief that I can now go out and focus on the next step of my career instead of spending all my time and effort travelling and rehearsing for The Voice,” he said.

“I was out at the right time on a hell of a high note and completely chuffed that I did everything I wanted to do on stage and more.

“I’m proud that I got to show the British public that alternative rock music is still alive and kicking.

“There’s another brilliant contestant who didn’t make it through recently but is such a hell of a young talent and I’ll be teaming up and jamming with him for a few things.

“So watch that space.”

Judge Danny O’Donoghue opted to give his pass through to the next stage to visually impaired singer Andrea Begley, leaving Mitchel to face Karl Michael in the public vote.

But the Burntwood rocker admitted he already knew his fate was sealed.

“I knew I was going out because I didn’t have the typical ‘sob story’,” he explained. “But I’m so glad I got to do something that kicked ass.

“I’ve never been more happier and positive about the future. I can focus on my music, playing live, networking and spending more time with the fans.”

Mitchel also hopes to put out an album from his musical project MisterNothing.

The release of All My Favourite Bands Are Dead was delayed due to his appearance on The Voice.
