Both were pitted against each other ala Rihanna and Shontelle, but what made Sam Smith become the Madonna to the Cyndi of John Newman?

I'm assuming it's because people preferred Sam's voice over his. Both have very annoying voices. 

 

Also, he apparently had brain tumors and I imagine that caused setbacks for him as well.

John Newman voice is really annoying. And I think the GP was only here for his collabs with Calvin Harris.

Different voice, different music (at least whatever was pushed to the public)

John literally had to take time to recover from a 2nd brain tumor, and both have completely different sound, I don't get the comparison

John's voice is so grating and I didn't like a single song of his
