Elton John has spoken out on "The Voice" talent show in an interview with the BBC (via Artist Direct).
The Rocket Man singer has noted that nobody on the show has had a hit record:
"The Voice is all about watching the judges, it is in America," and pointed out that "nobody on 'The Voice' in America has had a hit record. Nobody on 'The Voice' in England has had a hit record - they're nonentities."
Sir Elton was recently forced to postpone his summer tour after a diagnosis of appendicitis. An official statement read:
"Sir Elton is currently undergoing a course of intensive antibiotics and is expected to undergo surgery in the UK in the coming weeks, once doctors can be confident they have sufficiently reduced toxins within the inflamed appendicitis site."
The singer's spokesman stated:"Elton is incredibly disappointed to postpone these tour dates. To know that he made such super-human efforts and continued to perform to thousands through his illness only confirms his dedication to his European fans. He is eager to be back on top form and return to play the remaining shows starting in early September 2013."
