Anyone who has had their wisdom teeth removed will know the pain of waking up after surgery but not quite being ‘with it’.

After having her teeth removed recently, Rita Ora now knows all about this too.

Thankfully, the singer saw the hilarious side to her incoherent mumblings, sharing a video on Instagram and writing: “So I just took my wisdom teeth out and I think what I’m trying to say is chickens…oh god watching this back I don’t remember anything!!!! Straight to bed for me…byeeeee.”

Poor Rita, it’s never fun having surgery – and wisdom teeth removal can be particularly sore.

Rita’s future on The Voice has also been thrown into doubt after it was rumoured she would not return for another instalment of the talent show.

It was just days ago that she shared a snap of herself with fellow judges, Ricky, Tom Jones and Will I Am, writing: “I’m Gona [sic] miss these guys….thank you for being 3 of the best people to work with ever!! @bbcthevoice #TheCoachesBiatches.”

Aww, we’ll really miss Rita is she quits The Voice – she was always so nice and caring to the contestants.



And another one bites the dust.

This morning we reported that Hollyaoks star Stephanie Waring had called time on her relationship with boyfriend Riad Erraji, and now it has been revealed that The Voice judge Ricky Wilson is also now single.

The Kaiser Chiefs frontman admitted this weekend that he has split from his girlfriend of five years, TV producer Lesley Williams.

Opening up on the reason behind the break-up, Ricky revealed that the fame brought by his new role on the BBC talent show had its role to play.

“I took the risk of putting myself out there and I knew it was going to change me. I feel quite uncomfortable that I dragged someone else in who didn’t want that. It’s a huge part of my life and I find it tricky that I can’t have it both ways,” he said.

A source also told The Sun newspaper: “Ricky always wanted to keep Lesley out of the limelight and hates the idea that people will be talking about their break-up.”

Meanwhile, plenty of viewers have drawn attention to Ricky’s flirting with singer and fellow The Voice judge Rita Ora, who is in a relationship with designer Tommy Hilfiger’s son, Ricky.

Could there on-screen chemistry have also made for uncomfortable viewing?


Actress and singer Delta Goodrem had a scary moment on the set of The Voice Australia recently when she collapsed during filming.

The star was in the middle of offering feedback to a female singer in front of a 200-strong studio audience when she fell ill and had to be treated by paramedics.

Delta reportedly stopped talking and told her co-judges to give her a minute before rushing backstage. 

Shortly afterwards, a producer appeared on stage to tell the audience that Delta was "not feeling very well" and had complained of "pressure" on her chest, according to Australian magazine Women's Day.

Despite the scare, Delta returned to filming just ten minutes later and even made light of the situation by telling a contestant, "You were so good I just had to pass out."

Too early to joke, maybe?!

A spokesperson for the singer later said the incident had been brought on by high temperatures in the studio combined with Delta's tiredness from her hectic schedule. Delta, who was in a relationship with Westlife's Bryan McFadden for seven years between 2004 and 2011, is currently working on her fifth studio album as well as appearing on The Voice.

This isn't the first time there have been concerns for the star's health – she underwent chemotherapy back in 2003 to treat a type of cancer known as Hodgkin's Lymphoma, but luckily she has been in remission for the last ten years.

We hope Delta has a good support network and is being well looked after – it certainly sounds like she got a fright this week.



There is shocking news in the world of Irish music today as it has been revealed that The Voice Of Ireland judge, Dolores O’Riordan has split with her husband of twenty years.

In an exclusive interview with The Limerick Leader, Eileen O’Riordan, Dolores’ mum said that her daughter is in a “very vulnerable” state and is currently “under the care of a psychiatric doctor”.

Eileen also confirmed the split, saying: “She is going through a marriage separation at the moment. That’s hard for anyone.”

Dolores was married to Don Burton in Tipperary back in 1994. 

The couple have three children together; Taylor, Molly and Dakota. 

The sad news comes days after Dolores was arrested for assaulting an air host and a member of the guards on a flight from New York to Shannon.

She was later released by Garda.

We really hope Dolores feels better soon – this sounds like a very hard time for her and her family. 




It has been revealed that singer and The Voice star Bo Bruce received shocking threats against her reputation and career from her own father.

Details of Bo's strained relationship with her estranged father, the Earl of Cardigan, were revealed in the midst of a messy legal battle over the Earl’s estate.

The singer, who rose to fame in the 2012 series of The Voice, reportedly received emails from her father in which he threatened to “invent some untrue or nasty dirt” about her in the media.

The details of the Earl’s shocking emails were revealed yesterday in an ongoing court case in the High Court. The Earl is attempting prevent the sale of his family estate’s property to pay off debts.

This is just the latest twist in Bo’s conflict with her father. The star, who was once branded “the little scorpion” by the Earl, also obtained a restraining order against him.

A source close to Bo once gave a sad insight into her family life, saying: “The relationship between Bo and her father is so bad, it’s really beyond repair.”

Sadly, it certainly seems that way.



Just weeks after announcing she is expecting her second child, Irish singer Una Foden has some other super-exciting news to share.

The Saturdays star has just been announced as a new coach on The Voice of Ireland!

Una’s exciting news was announced this morning, with confirmation that the Tipperary native will replace Dolores O’Riordan in the red seat.

Una will join seasoned judges Kian Egan and Bressie on the panel for the next series of the show, while Jamelia’s replacement has yet to be revealed.

Currently based in London with husband and rugby star Ben Foden and their two-year-old daughter, Aoife Belle, Una will commute to Dublin for filming.

Una has just finished up a month-long greatest hits tour with The Saturdays, so no doubt she will be looking forward to turning her talents to a new project. Before fans of the band get too upset though, Una’s bandmate Frankie Bridge has said that this is definitely “not the end” for the girl group.


We are big fans of Una’s here at Shemazing!, so we are really looking forward to seeing what she can bring to the show.

….even though he hadn’t died!

When Tom Jones began trending on Twitter on Sunday, everyone assumed he had died.

Rather, it was quite the opposite; the Welsh singer had performed at the AFL grand final in Australia.

Many people took to Twitter to say that when they saw his name trending, they instantly assumed he had passed away. 


Thankfully, The Voice judge is still alive, well and singing!



The UK version of the popular chair-swivelling search for a singing sensation has announced today that there will be a new judge for the fourth series.

Replacing Kylie Minogue, who stepped down as judge at the end of the last series is chart-topper Rita Ora. The 23-year-old singer previously showed off her judging skills as a Guest Judge on the X Factor in 2012.

Rita will be joining Will.i.am, Tom Jones and Ricky Wilson to coach and judge the singing hopefuls.

Rita announced the news on Twitter this morning, posting:

“So excited to be part of; and for my team to win The Voice this series!!”

“Let's have some fun @iamwill, @RealSirTomJones and @Rickontour!!Looking forward to the blind rounds and spinning in my big red chair. EXCITED!"

The fourth series starts auditioning next month and will air in January –  we can’t wait to see what Rita brings to the team!



Things just keep getting better and better for Taylor Swift, and we’re delighted for the star!

Not only is she due to release her fifth studio album ‘1989’ in October, but Taylor has also been invited to join The Voice USA!

The Shake it Off singer will work alongside the star-studded team – Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani, Pharrell Williams and Blake Shelton – to offer support and advice to contestants in the upcoming seventh season of the NBC show.

Taylor, who performed on the fourth season of the programme, will join already announced mentors Stevie Nicks, who will work with Adam, Gavin Rossdale, who will help his wife Gwen, Little Big Town, who will work alongside Blake, and Alicia Keys, who was chosen by Pharrell to help him and his team.

Taylor said she is “delighted” with the news, and we can’t think of a better person for the job!

The next season of The Voice USA is set to hit screens on September 22nd.



Irish X Factor judge Louis Walsh has had a massive go at singer Bressie – saying he has no right to judge other people’s talents!

Louis said the former Blizzards singer is in no position to be judging hopeful musicians because he has never had a hit himself.

While the former manager of Boyzone and Westlife thinks Dolores O’Riordan is a hit on the show, he thinks Bressie should be booted off!

Louis said, “I thought Dolores was just fantastic. She was absolutely natural. She was just sitting there like she was at home watching telly.

“I think she was very honest and very good and she has sold a lot of records, unlike Bressie who has never had a hit.

“He is telling people what to do and he has never had a hit record.

“He should do male modelling. I think he should just forget about the music.”


He added, “I know Dolores and Kian [Egan] have, and Jamelia has had one or two hits but I can’t remember any of Bressie’s songs.”

And in a swipe at the Voice of Ireland Louis advised singing hopefuls to audition for the X Factor instead.

He said,  “I watched it but nothing ever happens to the winner. Look at One Direction, look at Ollie Murs, look at JLS and look at Leona Lewis. The Voice doesn’t produce stars.”




Brendan McCahey is The Voice of Ireland 2014, and his coach Bressie wants him to record his first album pronto!

Cavan singer Brendan beat off stiff competition from Kellie Lewis, Laura May Lenehan and Jamie Stanton to come out on top in this year’s live final.

Speaking following the win, Brendan said, “I’m delighted – I’m so glad!”

A bookies’ favourite from early on, Brendan impressed all coaches on the RTÉ show throughout the series with coach Kian Egan championing his cause going last night big final!

“Honestly for me you’re the winner,” said Kian during the final. “You have shown us there is a lot of undiscovered talent in this country, you are the best singer on this show in three years.”

His coach Bressie thinks he is ready to record an album right now.

“The only thing Brendan hasn’t done is gangsta rap,” he said. “You are ready to record an album, you are that good.”

All four finalists’ songs are available to download from iTunes.
