Welwyn Garden City’s The Voice UK contestant on TV tonight
PUBLISHED: 15:00 01 March 2014
The waiting is over and Welwyn Garden City’s singing sensation will return to TV screens tonight (Saturday) in the next gruelling round of The Voice UK.
"We have all gone in as solo artists, to have two creative minds working together can be quite difficult at times."
Lee Glasson, 31, has been under the careful tutelage of Australian pop princess Kylie Minogue for roughly six weeks, after stunning her with a Radiohead-esque take of her smash hit Can’t Get You Out of My Head.
Now the insurance manager will take on a fellow member of Team Kylie in a competitive duet, dubbed the Battle Phase, on the BBC One talent show at 7pm.
Lee could not tell the Welwyn Hatfield Times much about what is in store, but confessed he had enjoyed working with the chart-topping sex symbol.
“It’s Kylie Minogue, she is a beautiful lady,” he said.
“To work alongside someone like that is great, she has done a lot of duets in her time.
“It is a good song, it is upbeat. It is an opportunity to show a different side to what I do.”
Lee said he could not reveal the track he was singing, but promo pictures show Lee practising with Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears.
But it seems the relationship with his competitor Jimmy Weston did not make him feel like dancing.
“There was possibly a bit of a clash of personalities,” said the former Monk’s Walk School student.
“I think it was amicable, but it was hard. There were moments where we had creative differences.
“We have all gone in as solo artists, to have two creative minds working together can be quite difficult at times.”
It has been some weeks since Lee – who now lives in Coventry – has appeared on the show, but he has been stopped on the streets countless times. This might be because a clip of his audition has been viewed more than 800,000 times on YouTube.
Despite his newfound celebrity status, he is trying to stay grounded.
He said: “I have never done one of these programmes because I wanted to have that kind of attention.
“I’m all about the music. I’m not going to say it’s not nice, but it is not what I specifically want.”
