Emeli Sande is among the big names being considered as a replacement for Jessie J after she announced she was quitting her role as a judge on 'The Voice'
Emeli Sande is reportedly wanted to replaced Jessie J on 'The Voice'.
The judge quit the TV talent show yesterday (05.07.13) to focus on her own music career and it is said BBC bosses are looking at the 'Clown' singer - as well as Paloma Faith and Rita Ora - as they seek to fill her spot.
An insider added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It would be great to have someone young and current."
However, the singing contest could find itself having to find an entirely new judging panel with reports Jessie's fellow coaches - will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones and Danny O'Donoghue - could follow her exit.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Bosses are checking the availability of the other three coaches but there is a very real fear they could follow Jessie and quit too as they said they'd only re-sign if all of them did.
"If they go it would be a massive headache for the BBC, which is still trying to find the right formula to make it a bigger success."
Speaking about her departure, Jessie had said: "I've absolutely loved my time on 'The Voice', and I hope everyone saw and knows how passionately I felt about the show.
"I can't wait to promote my new record around the world and that has to take priority. I shall be keeping a very close eye on series three, showing my support in every way I can, and really hope that in some way that I can be part of the show."
