I Can See Your Voice contestant’s awkward blunder to Amanda Holden

Amanda Holden was left shocked on the latest episode of BBC’s I Can See Your Voice when an awkward comment from a contestant forced her to defend her own singing career.

The Saturday night singing game show was back for another episode, where two more contestants tried to sort out the bad singers from the good.

On tonight’s episode (Saturday, May 22) brothers Joe and Dan from Middlesbrough tried to spot the imposters and win the grand prize of £10,000.

Towards the end of the show as the brothers were trying to decide between the final two singers, there was an awkward gaffe about Amanda’s singing career.

“If you wanted to be a professional singer,” one of the contestants began, offering Amanda the hypothetical situation.

However, he was unable to finish as Amanda quickly jumped in to proclaim: “I am a professional singer”, before bursting out laughing.

Luckily Jimmy Carr was on hand to jump in and remind the contestants and the audience of Amanda’s successful singing career.

“She had a number one album last year,” Jimmy explained. “I’m just mentioning that because I don’t want her to have to mention it again – every show.”

Of course the contestant didn’t really intend to insult Amanda’s career as a singer, but the awkward blunder led to a lot of laughs from the celebrity panel.

While many may know Amanda best today for her long-running residency as judge on Britain’s Got Talent or her hosting of the Heart Breakfast radio show, her singing career is equally impressive.

Amanda starred in the musical stage show Thoroughly Modern Millie in 2004, for which she was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award.

Last year she released her debut studio album, Songs from My Heart, which – although Jimmy said it got to number one on the show – it actually reached number four on the UK Albums Chart.

Still pretty good!

The album features a number of covers, mainly of show tunes, but also includes Amanda’s own version of hits such as Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years and Billy Joel’s Lullabye.

The two brothers went on to win the prize after successfully choosing the final contestant who was actually a good singer.
