Rita Ora can’t choose between X Factor and The Voice

Rita Ora can’t choose between ‘X Factor’ and ‘The Voice’.
The 27-year-old singer has worked as a coach on ‘The Voice UK’ and a judge on ‘The X Factor’ and when asked by an aspiring singer which one she would recommend, Rita admitted she was torn.
Writing in The Guardian’s advice column, she said: "Oh God! I’ve had the privilege of working on both. I love them equally. My heart would say ‘The Voice’ but my head would say ‘The X Factor’. It’s important to remember that, although they’re great platforms, you don’t need to go on a show to become a pop star. You can graft and do it the old-school way. If you have a dream, then 100 per cent go for it. You’re probably going to be hurt a lot of times, like I have been, like every pop star in the industry has been. You have to have very thick skin. Richard Branson said: ‘You can’t have a Plan B.’ If you’re gonna do something, you have to really commit."
Rita previously quit ‘The Voice UK’ in 2015 in order to join the judging panel of ‘The X Factor’ and she went on to win the show with her act Louisa Johnson.
However, she quit after just one series, tweeting: "I had a ball on @TheXFactor last year and will miss the team.
"@simoncowell can’t wait to work with you again… I’ll be round for dinner soon. Thank you for the experience & love X (sic)."
‘X Factor’ producers added: "Rita brought a great energy to the show last year and did a brilliant job mentoring the girls’ category, leading Louisa to victory.
"We wish her all the best with her music and film plans for the rest of the year."
