Jessie J: Voice like nothing else

Jessie J shaved her hair off for Comic Relief

Jessie J has said she is proud to be on The Voice because its contestants aren't bullied.

The Price Tag singer, who is preparing to return as a coach for the second series of the BBC One show, said it is different to other programmes because of the way the wannabes are treated.

She told The Sun: "The Voice is like nothing else, there is no bullying, pointing and laughing or editing to make people look horrific."

Jessie - who shaved her head live on Comic Relief last week - also talked about her decision to rejoin the show, which faced a ratings drop during the first series, saying she wouldn't have come back if it wasn't "credible".

"If it was that bad I wouldn't be back for a second series," said the 24-year-old Brit winner.

"I definitely wouldn't be sitting in the chair if it was bad, if it wasn't credible. It is a music show that celebrates and doesn't ridicule."

Jessie is returning to The Voice later this month alongside fellow coaches Sir Tom Jones, Danny O'Donoghue and Will.i.am.

The show has been given a bit of a makeover after viewers branded the final live rounds boring and ratings fell after the blind auditions.
