THE Voice winner Anja Nissen has missed out on stardom by delaying the release of her first single, former reality TV judge Mark Holden says.

Nissen’s first single — the Delta Goodrem-penned My Girls — was shelved the day before it was due to be released without explanation.

She is instead expected to release a new song written by her Voice coach will.i.am later this week in addition to the collection of covers she performed on the series.

“In reality TV you get one moment to make an impact and unfortunately she (Nissen) may have missed hers,” Holden said.

“Delta is a brilliant songwriter so I find it hard to believe the song wasn’t any good.

“Even if will.i.am’s new song is fantastic, I think putting off the release of the single for even a week will be an enormous mistake.

The Voice artists just don’t seem to have the same success as the guys from Idol. Maybe we got the best of the gene pool because we were first.”

Holden’s fellow Australian Idol judge, Ian “Dicko” Dickson agrees. Dicko — a former record executive — said the first album for any reality TV contest winner was often a “compromise” of their artistic vision.

He said the first album needed to give fans of the show what they wanted to hear, not necessarily what the singers wanted to perform.

He said Guy Sebastian — Idol’s first winner and easily the most successful Australian reality TV singer contestant — would probably look back at his first album and “cringe” but that he understood that was how the game was played.

Nevertheless, Dicko said Sebastian’s first album was so successful that he handed him his first royalty cheque for $1 million just three months after it went on sale.

Dicko said having big name stars on the judging panel didn’t really benefit the contestants in the long run.

“No one says anything really tough, which is counter to what our show did,” he said.

“I’d love to see Mark, with his creaky old bones, giving one of his ‘Touchdown!’ yells.”
