AFTER the departure of Danny O’Donoghue and Jessie J, the pair have emerged as favourites to replace the outgoing judges.

EMELI SANDE and Robbie Williams are being tipped to join The Voice – by the bookies.

Scots superstar Emeli is as short at 5-1 to become a coach on the BBC show after Danny O’Donoghue followed fellow judge Jessie J in quitting.

And Robbie (6/1) is also near the head of the betting, followed by Paloma Faith (7/1) and Olly Murs (8/1).

Ladbrokes’ Jessica Bridge said: “Emeli and Robbie are the hot favourites but the BBC have got a tough task trying to fill the two vacancies.”

THE Scots singer’s rise to the top of the charts wasn’t an easy one as she failed to get through the audition stages at a council-run talent show in Inverurie town hall at the age of 12.

WITH four nominations, Emeli Sande is tipped to be crowned Queen of the Brits this week.

But the singer from Alford, Aberdeenshire, got her first taste of fame at a council-run talent show in Inverurie town hall.

At the age of 12, Emeli – then known by her birth name Adele – failed to get through the audition stages at her first attempt.

But the following year, she came a respectable third and collected a cheque for £150.

And later, as part of teenage a cappella trio Celeste, she finally hit the top slot but had to share the £500 first prize with bandmates Nadia Donald and Lorna Routh.

Emeli’s dad Joel, relaxing at the family home in Alford, said: “At every school concert, she wanted to perform.

“She entered the Inverurie talent show the first time and sang Liza Minnelli’s Cabaret and Mariah Carey’s I Will Never Forget You.

“She moved on to Christina Aguilera when she entered a second time and later chose the gospel song I Sing Because I’m Happy/His Eye Is On The Sparrow and Woman’s Work by Alicia Keys.”

Mum Diane, posing at the piano where Emeli worked on her earliest songs, added: “She didn’t get through to the finals that first time but that didn’t put her off.

“When she entered the second time, she came third.

“And winning with Celeste, when they sang Bridge Over Troubled Water and Fields of Gold a cappella, was a fun night.”

George Mitchell, who produced the shows for Gordon District Council, said: “One of the lovely people we came across at these talent shows was a wonderful young lady who is now world famous.

“I have a distinct memory of sitting there on a cold Sunday morning at her very first audition.

“She came in, sang and everybody held their breath as they listened to her. She commanded the hall.

“We used to advise all the contestants on how they could improve their performance so we talked to Emeli, who was still known as Adele at that time.

“She listened and took on board everything we said. She was a lovely person in every sense of the word.”

Emeli had turned 16 by the time she got her first big break, thanks to another talent contest for Trevor Nelson’s BBC3 TV show Rhythm Nation.

She won but turned down the first prize – a short term record deal with Telstar.

Joel said: “She had to turn it down because, having read through the contract, it didn’t give her enough security or longevity.

“It was just for one single and maybe one other after that. She needed something to fall back on.”

The teenage singer returned to Scotland empty-handed, unaware that Carlton Dixon, a producer for BBC3, had spotted her talent and tipped off music business acquaintance Adrian Sykes.

Adrian, who is now her manager, said: “Carlton told me he had found a great girl and that I had to go and see her. Being London-centric, I thought he was going to send me south of the Thames.

“When he told me she was actually in Aberdeen, I was like, ‘Oh, God, really?’ But he persuaded me to go.

“Danny D, a music publisher friend of mine, and I got on a plane, got a taxi from the airport to her house, met the family and sat down to this lovely little girl plinking out some tunes.

“She performed a song called Matchstick Girl. Even at 16, she was clearly incredibly talented.

“She was still at school, a grade A student, just about to take her Highers.

“She had a great determination and she was writing really good songs even then. She was just about to blossom.”

Perhaps mistrustful of the music business, Joel taped the conversation as Adrian pitched for a chance to develop her career.

He said: “People came and schmoozed and talked about the good things and never about the downside of the industry.

“I wanted to make sure we could review what had been said before making any decisions.

“So I recorded all the meetings of the people who came over.” Adrian added: “I can understand why he felt the need to tape those conversations. We were the big record company people coming up from London.

“Joel and Diane were brilliant with us though, incredibly courteous and welcoming.

“They were genuinely pleased that  someone else believed in their daughter the way they did.”

The singer has returned to the top of the charts with album ‘Our Version of Events’

Emeli Sande looks set to end a busy year by claiming the sought after Christmas number one spot with debut album ‘Our Version of Events.’

The platinum selling record was reissued in October featuring several new tracks – just eight months on from its initial release in February – and is tipped to hold on to the number one spot after returning to the top of the mid-week album chart.

Sales have increased over the course of the year following a string of high profile appearances – including notable performances at the Olympics Opening Ceremony, the X Factor Final and The Sports Personality of the Year Awards on Monday evening, where she performed latest single ‘Clown.’

Nearest rival Olly Murs remains number two with third album ‘Right Place Right Time,’ while Canadian crooner Michael Buble hangs at three with seasonal album ‘Christmas.’

Elsewhere The Justice Collective – featuring vocals from Robbie Williams and Sir Paul McCartney – look set to claim the Top 40 number one slot over Christmas with Hillsbrough charity single ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother.’

The track – originally released by The Hollies in 1969 – is currently ahead of X Factor winner James Arthur’s debut single ‘Impossible’ by 3,400 copies, while will.i.am remains at number three with Britney Spears collaboration ‘Scream & Shout.’

Away from the top ten YouTube sensation Alex Day is a new entry at number 12 with ‘Stupid Stupid,’ while Ellie Goulding makes an appearance at number 30 with latest cut ‘Figure 8.’

X Factor reject One Pound Fish Man also climbs into the top 40 with ‘One Pound Fish.’

Scottish pop-star Emeli Sande will host a song-writing workshop next month for children in the prestigious Royal Albert Hall.

The workshop, to be held on October 16,  for children from the boroughs of Hackney and Lewisham, and will see the children working together with Sande’s band to create original music and songs.

The workshop will then culminate in a live performance, just one month before the ‘Next To Me’ singer hosts her own concert night there.

Sande told Music Week, that she was “really excited” when the idea was initially suggested by the Royal Albert Hall.

She went on to say: “It’s really special to have the opportunity to work with children and I’m sure I’ll take as much inspiration from then as I can offer in return.”

Emeli Sande will be playing the Royal Albert Hall on November 11.
