Voice Kids star Danny Jones under fire

Meanwhile, while viewers were loving Angel, they weren’t quite so fond of Danny Jones’ “impromptu” performance with another contestant.

During the show, Danny invited contestant Joseph to perform a guitar duet with him out of the blue.

The pair performed perfectly, and it sparked some viewers to suggest the entire thing had been staged.

One wrote: “I mean, I’m not saying that #TheVoiceKids is set up, but it seems a bit of a coincidence that the band were ready for an ‘impromptu’ jam of a random song picked by the kid.”
