To want to put my foot through the television whenever I see Leah singing on The Voice

She comes across as a lovely girl but my God does she get on my tats when she sings. All that warbling and screaming at the high notes. Is that really how she sings or does she have a "jaggy jobbie" (my 3yr old's favourite question when someone appears to be in pain) ?

Grin Jaggie jobbie

Sorry, I think she's amazing. YABU.


Sheshelob · 15/06/2013 21:07

Nah. It's all about Matt, man.

She took on Lauryn Hill. And lost.


DeathMetalMum · 15/06/2013 21:08

YANBU. I'm not keen on her at all.

I think I would appreciate her voice more if she did less of the Mariah Carey type high notes. Really gets on my nerves when their voice goes all over the place, I find it quite distracting...

She's dreadful! I hate that cutesy ahhhh ahhhh ahhhh ugggg ahhhh warbling.

I mute the tv when she starts.



Sheshelob · 15/06/2013 21:14

And her penchant for a-line skirts makes me want to burn down Shoreditch.


Pinkflipflop · 15/06/2013 21:16

No offence Leah but you definitely need to go and see a new hairdresser, one who doesn't run out of colour halfway through.

Aww see, I'm starting to feel sorry for her now. She's only young and probably likes her "unique" fashion style....Just calm down a wee bit love when you're singing.

I expect she is really a lovely girl, and a nice person, but OMG she grates on my last nerve Confused
I have no idea quite why, obviously I've never met her and am not likely to, but everything about her irritates me beyond belief.
Her hair, her face, her eyelashes, her clothes, her voice, all just make me want to take Katie Weasel Waissel and use them to beat each other to death with, and it's not a nice feeling tbh Confused
I bet there's a PhD in there somewhere, about why some people have the "reverse X factor" and just irk people for reasons they can't describe.
That lad who was dropped from Team Danny tonight was a bit the same way - I even voted for Andrea three times rather than once cos I disliked him so much, and like her so much iyswim...

"Jaggie Jobbie" - oh my days! Just laughed so hard my false teeth nearly flew out the window into the garden Grin. That really is brilliant!

I missed it. PomBearWithAnOFRS, was the the guy who had once had a recording career then lost it and ended up cleaning windows?
Because I couldnt take to him either, its odd isnt it the way you can have an instant dislike to people without any rational reason.


Bearcrumble · 16/06/2013 07:09

I like Leah. I think her voice is really interesting and she seems very nice and not up herself. It's a shame Cleo had to go though as I loved her too.

Bloke from Danny's group looks like KD Laing and has a very pedestrian singing voice.


cannotfuckingbelievethis · 16/06/2013 07:34

MalcolmTuckersMum - she asked me if I had one the other day in a very busy public toilet. The cubicle next to me literally shook with the woman laughing inside it....

That's him meddie he's had two record contracts and been dropped twice by record companies - just shows no matter how well someone sings, if they haven't got "IT" whatever it is, and aren't liked, they will never make it big...


extremepie · 17/06/2013 00:53

I was JUST talking to DH about how much she annoys me - she seems like a lovely girl....until she opens her mouth and starts singing :/

I find her so nasal/throaty and not in a good way, and that stupid high pitched screamy thing she does makes me rage - it might have been slightly impressive the first time she did it but she does it in EVERY song she sings!!



GreatGretzky · 17/06/2013 01:30

YANBU. Can't stand that high pitched screechy noise she's always making. She's obviously talented but she really annoys me!
