Jessie J Wants 'Sob Stories' Banned From The Voice UK

29 September 2012

Jessie J has called for sob stories to be banned from the next season of The Voice UK.

The singer, who works as a coach on the BBC show, told Alan Carr on Chatty Man last night that she made a few requests to producers when negotiating her return.

She said: "I am not a major fan of the whole back story and ‘Let’s all feel sorry for everyone.’

"It is a bit like: ‘Been there, done that, seen that.’ Isn’t it about the voice? I might get in trouble for this..."

She also revealed that dates of audition filming have been changed to accomodate her tour.

"My tour dates and the dates of The Voice clashed, so I said: ‘I need to prioritise my tour and my fans,'" she explained.

"I was really gutted so I called the head of the BBC and said ‘Can we talk about this? I don’t feel right.’

"I didn’t want to miss out, so I sat with them and we looked at the dates and we jigged things around and I was then able to do it."
