The Voice’s Hayley Jensen Slams Former Australian Idol Judge Mark Holden Because He Criticised Her
Hayley Jensen clearly still has issues with her Australian Idol days with her coming out and slamming Mark Holden for not liking her.
Hayley who is now through to the battle rounds on The Voice Australia came fourth in the second series of Australian Idol is still talking about the fact judge Mark Holden criticised her performances.
She says she was only 21 years old at the time and she told News.com.au “I’d love to see him, I’d like to say, ‘Oi, what’s your problem buster?’ I have a lot more confidence these days, to ask him for real, rather than feel intimidated.”
Mark Holden when asked by news.com.au sent back a response filled with more spin then the Federal Budget.
“I saw Hayley’s performance on The Voice — she looks and sounds fab.
“Will.i.am could give her a massive hit record or form another group around her- persistence pays off big time, congrats to Hayley for hanging in and continuing to believe in herself no matter what anyone else says!
“Good luck Hayley, you are already a winner. Mark.”
She likes The Voice because the Coaches are nicer. Which was one of the criticisms from the viewers about the show that once it got to the battle rounds and live show that coaches were not criticising sub-standard performances.
That’s the difference with The Voice this year, I haven’t heard anyone say ‘you’re just average or not good enough’”, said Jensen.
“The Voice has been a really lovely experience. There’s been no forcing of talking about this or that skeleton in your closet.
“That’s the reason why I went on The Voice.”
Surprisingly she said that this year she has not had to have a compelling back story as last year EVERYONE did. And in a essence that is the issue with Hayley she is just not compelling enough. She is pretty with a good voice but star quality was lacking on Idol and probably what will hinder her being a contender on The Voice Australia.
The Voice Australia on NINE tonight 7.30pm.
