Jessie J says the reason she signed up for 'The Voice' was because the show represents her as a person
Jessie J claims 'The Voice' represents her as a person.
The 'Price Tag' singer - who is a coach on the BBC One talent show alongside will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones and Danny O'Donoghue - explained she signed up for the series rather than 'The X Factor' or 'Britain's Got Talent' because it felt right for her.
She said: "A lot of people were, like, 'Why aren't you doing 'Britain's Got Talent' or 'The X Factor'?'
"But I think it's really important in your career to pick things that really represent you as a person."
The 23-year-old star admitted she was nervous about signing up for the show but is pleased viewers get to see her in a different light to her usual pop personality.
She added in an interview with The Sun newspaper: "It's very scary but very exciting. But you know what? I'm just excited because I get to see a different side of things and people get to see me in a completely different scenario.
"I'm not singing and it's not me doing a three-minute TV performance, so people get to see my personality and really see that I have a passion for what I do. That's what I'm most excited about, people getting to see that I am a bit silly, make jokes and get told off.
"But I'm also a hard worker and care about technique and the artist, and I get very emotional."
