Referencing the name of another of the tracks they collaborated on, he said: “I have “3WORDS for the both of us…
“(Good luck tonight).
“I’m proud of you!!!”
Singer Cheryl replied: “I love you.”
Murs previously laughed off the competition between the shows, telling the Press Association: “The Greatest Dancer is already here on The Voice.
“They should scrap the show!”, he quipped.
“I’m already here. I’m already the greatest dancer – dad dancing”.
And Will.i.am, who has been on The Voice since its inception, had said: “There are a lot of TV shows. We are up against Instagram too.”
