Jessie J "can't wait" to get started on the second series of 'The Voice', confirming she will be back
Jessie J has confirmed she will be a coach on the second series of 'The Voice'.
Despite disappointing viewing figures for the first season of the BBC show, the 'Price Tag' hitmaker has revealed she has signed on for the series next year, saying she "can't wait" to get started.
In a series of posts, Jessie wrote on twitter: "The Voice UK Series 2... Areyou ready?! I AM ;)
"I WILL be a coach on the 2nd series of The Voice UK! I'm B B B BACK! As I have always said. Unless you hear it from me- Don't always believe what you read! Can't wait! #thevoiceuk #weback *fist to the sky* ;) (sic)"
Last year, Jessie mentored acts including Vince Kidd, Cassius Henry and Toni Warne.
The full line-up has still not been confirmed, although all the previous judges - will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones and Danny O'Donoghue - are expected to return.
Danny recently complained about last year's winner Leanne Mitchell claiming she may have been the best singer but was not the best "artist", despite the premise of the programme being about the quality of the winner's voice.
He said: "She wasn't on my team so I can't feel that much disappointment. She won the show, you know, in the final she was technically the best singer. Was she technically the best artist? No. But that's just my opinion.
"She was definitely the best singer on the night, but it was unfortunate that other people didn't get a look in, ones that would have suited pop music better."
