Rita Ora opted to join The Voice in the U.K., turning down X Factor in the process. Why did she choose one reality talent show over the other, especially since X has produced plenty of superstars and TheVoice... has not?
"The respect levels for this show are really high," Ora told The Sun. "It is well-received and respected by other artists. That is why I joined, because I really respected the format and how it musically connected to the contestants."
Ora furthered, "I don't know how X Factor works, I was only there as a guest judge for a day. But I watched The Voice a lot, I respected how it came across on TV and I love the freedom we get as coaches to do what we want."
Do you watch the domestic version of The Voice? The U.S. edition of X Factor lasted just three seasons before getting the axe.
