‘The Voice’ UK hosts insist no real rivalry with ‘The X Factor’

VoiceThe new season of “The Voice” UK is going to be premiering on BBC One come January 9, and while it is going to be moving to ITV following this upcoming season, the hosts of the show really want you to know one thing: there really is no rivalry between this show and the long-running “X Factor.”

Emma Willis and Marvin Humes are the two hosts for the former singing competition, and speaking per the Irish Examiner, the latter explained that there is a reason why the two shows don’t have that much of a competition. To him, much of it has to do with the numbers:

“There’s no rivalry because The Voice gets more ratings than The X Factor … Obviously I come from The X Factor in JLS so I’m always going to be in support of the show, but The Voice is the most successful music show on TV so it’s all good.”

Boom. So there you have it. It is still a pretty good explanation no matter how you slice it, since “The X Factor” did fall pretty hard in the ratings this past year. It’s clear that this show does have its work cut out for it if it wants to regain some of its footing as one of the more successful singing shows on TV. This is something that we’re hoping to have some more updates on in the near future, so for now our suggestion is relatively simple: Stay tuned! We expect some good stuff very soon.
