The coaches on The Voice
are at it again this weekend, with Brian Kennedy getting on Bressie's
nerves over a remark passed about one of his team.
(45) labels Conor Quinn (22) a "hunchback" during the battle stages of this Sunday nights programme.
But, his comments about the Meath man, who is on Bressie (31) team, are taken with a pinch of salt by the singer when Conor himself jokes that he is more like Gollum from Lord of The Rings.
As part of his critique Kian Egan (31) tells him: "Conor you really have serious potential..everybody in here knows that, but just the facial expressions for me are very hard to get past, and I think for the audience at home aswell, they'll find that very odd, much as they'll love what they're hearing."
Brian interrupts: "Conor, I hope you don't mind me saying....if Disney made a movie about the hunchback of Notre Dame, and he came down as a cartoon character to sing, then that would be the voice of the hunchback, because it's beautiful, and there's an ugliness to it aswell."
But insiders say that although Conor laughs it off, Bressie is not so amused. Brian's remark goes down like a tonne of bricks with Bressie, who was not impressed with his choice of words," a source told The Star.
Meanwhile, Kian Egan has rallied behind Sharon Corr's (41) barrister partner Gavin Bonnar's fight against copyright infringement in the music industry. The Westlife singer yesterday added his name to the chorus of artists in support of The Artists' Charter
. He joins Bressie and a host of Irish music makers who support the charter, which will be launched at The Music Show
in Dublin's RDS this Saturday.
"I am delighted to back The Artists' Charter. Fair remuneration for artists is a human right, as the Charter says," he said in a statement issued to Hotpress yesterday. "We in the creative community have been ignored for too long in the file-sharing debate and the music industry simply cannot continue shedding jobs and revenues to the tune of billions of dollars. The Charter gives artists the chance to finally speak with one voice and say no more. I am backing it 100% and urge all you lovers of music to do likewise."
