Two more stars of reality talent TV will join the cast of new show Simply The Best! Divas which comes to Blackpool in the spring.

The X Factor’s Rachel Adedeji (right) and Jaz Ellington from The Voice will hit the stage alongside Amelia Lily and Niki Evans, who also found fame on The X Factor.

Simply The Best! Divas comes from the team behind the hit production Thriller Live, which played to packed Grand Theatre audiences in October, and in which Rachel has starred in since her time on the TV talent show.

This new show heads to the resort on Sunday, February 28.

Rachel said: “I’m thrilled to be joining three amazingly talented singers and can’t wait to share the stage with them for Simply The Best!”

Since achieving a semi-final spot on The Voice in 2012 and evoking a huge reaction on Twitter with his performance of John Legend’s ‘Ordinary People’, Jaz, a Brit School alumni along with the likes of Leona Lewis and Adele, has gone on to feature as a prominent backing vocalist both live with Rita Ora and Markus Feehily, as well as featuring on recordings with Ella Henderson and also on Kylie Minogue’s recent Christmas album release.

A spokesman for the show said: “Featuring some of the biggest and most adored hits from the likes of Beyoncé, Madonna, Annie Lennox, Kylie, Diana Ross and Adele, this live concert spectacular promises to be a dynamic visual experience too.

“Expect to be immersed and empowered by classic tracks such as Like A Virgin, Single Ladies, Rolling in the Deep, Spinning Around, Chain Reaction, If I Could Turn Back Time, and many more.”
