Frontman Roy Stride praised The Voice UK, explaining that there is more to being a musician than the glamour shown on The X Factor.
"We've written songs for One Direction and Alexandra Burke but we reckon The X Factor has had its day. There's some good talent on the TV but it just doesn't create real artists," he told the Daily Star.
"It's basically an audition, the same as West End musicals, just with more glitz and glamour. The best music comes from people singing music which means something to them.
"You have to buy into an artist and get a sense of feeling what they feel, rather than see someone good-looking singing someone else's songs. The BBC's The Voice was more about the music.
"We'd love to be judges on that show. My only experience was as a guest judge on The X Factor in Holland and I was too nice. One guy who auditioned was blind and, because he had a sob story, I went, 'Yeah, that was great', when he was absolutely awful."
