Jessie J on Five singer Sean Conlon being snubbed on The Voice

Jessie J has revealed that Five singer Sean Conlon auditioned to be on new TV talent show The Voice - but he was rejected.

The 'Domino' singer told Bang Showbiz that Conlon - who appeared on such Five hits as 'Slam Dunk (Da Funk)' and 'Got The Feelin' - appeared on the show as a contestant, but his voice didn't impress her enough to make her take notice.

She added that Five was the first concert she ever went to - so she was pretty surprised at the whole event. She said:

"I was so excited about Sean from Five auditioning but I couldn't believe I didn't turn around for him. He was the first concert I ever went to. The way I react when I realise it's him will be the moment people realise I am still very much in a dream world and pinching myself that I'm here."

Fellow coach Danny O'Donoghue meanwhile praised Conlon's spirit and perseverance in the music industry, despite Five dying a death many years ago. He is reported to have said:

"My heart goes out to every contestant, we've heard some really phenomenal singers. Hair raising. It takes a lot of confidence to come up on stage and audition, especially someone like Sean, but he's moved on from it and is still trying."
