Over the past few weeks judges from The Voice, The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent have been throwing comments back and forth in the press…
Now, Simon Cowell reportedly wants to poach Jessie J from her post on the BBC’s rival talent competition The Voice.
The Domino singer told The Sunday Mirror that she doesn’t want to work on a show that relies on ‘gimmicks’, but forgive us if we’re wrong but isn’t the whole chair turning thing a gimmick, no?
“It’s very nice of Simon to say nice things about me. But The Voice is the show I want to work on and I’m not going anywhere. It’s the show that represents everything I am about,” she said.
“I’ve always supported X Factor and BGT. I’ve been on both and performed. But I love being part of The Voice and I genuinely want these people to come out of this show at the end and know that they’re equipped to tackle the music industry.
“It’s bloody hard and we don’t want them to just have 12 months of a career. This is about getting them on the ladder for the long run. The Voice isn’t about gimmicks. X Factor rely on that and that’s their thing but it’s not our thing.
“I don’t think it’s easy to audition for X Factor at all. It’s a big machine and it’s overnight change. I don’t think I would have coped. I’m glad I did the hustle and bustle of seven years in the business and worked my arse off to try to survive.”
Well, there you have it. We don’t really care which show she is on so long as she’s on our screens, we’ve really taken to her!
