Rita Ora top pick to coach ‘The Voice’ winner despite One Show display

| 08.01.2015

She may be attracting attention for all the wrong reasons following a rather risqué wardrobe choice for an appearance on The One Show but Rita Ora still looks a good tip to coach the next winner of “The Voice”.

Sat alongside fellow judges Tom Jones, Will.I.Am and Ricky Wilson the 24-year-old’s sported a white Ermanno Scervino blazer with little to nothing underneath, prompting almost 400 complaints from people watching at home.

But despite her ensemble being labelled inappropriate in some corners, Ora still looks a tempting prospect to coach the winner with the 24-year-old 11/4 with Ladbrokes to come out on top in the chair-swivelling singing contest.

Jones, who claimed victory in the first series of the show is 9/4 for a second triumph while series three winner Will.I.Am is second in the market at 5/2 with the bookmaker.

Ora sits third in the market with her current chart popularity potentially a decisive factor in any march to success.

The British singer scored a fourth UK number one with her last single “I Will Never Let You Down” and recently celebrated success in the US after the Iggy Azalea track “Black Widow”, which featured vocals from Ora, reached number three in the charts.

Her current appeal could see the judge prove popular with contestants in much the same way Danny O’Donoghue of The Script did during series two.

And with the UK version of the show yet to feature a winning female coach, those behind the scenes will undoubtedly be keen to see the “How We Do” hitster celebrate the kind of success that could also see her stay on the coaching panel for another series.

She certainly appears to be a better prospect for victory than Kaiser Chiefs’ singer Wilson who is out at 3/1, despite the fact that his band’s last album topped the UK charts last year.

But with the show sure to throw up plenty of shocks Wilson could yet surprise.
