What. The. Actual. F.

She's had six top 10's, two of which went #1. Price Tag and Domino were both hits in the US too. So whatever you think of her, calling her a one hit wonder is ludicrous.

I like her. Yeah she recycles her phrases but so do all the others. I genuinely think she's truly being her "real" self.
What is the problem? I didn't say she was a one hit wonder,I clearly said that she was 'little more than'.I meant that her discography is pretty insignificant for someone who acts like the ultimate pop princess.So she had a few other lame hits,but they were just cashing in on Pricetag.With six hits in three years,you could write pretty much all of her career highlights on the back of your hand.Especially if you completely disregard that horrendous Domino song.Until she stacks up a bigger body of work than that,she should stop acting like the world's biggest diva.

In this series she was crying because the sisterhood had deserted her,but it's not too big a surprise because they won't be able to sing more than a couple of lines before being rudely interrupted.

It's ironic that Tom Jones has had the biggest career by far of any of the judges,but he hardly ever says anything.Not that he needs to,because he is a living legend.It's a shame that some of his dignity doesn't rub off on the other three windbags.

Yet a lot of people on here are moaning because he's too quiet and doesn't contribute much. I disagreed with them but it doesn't mean I'd like all the judges to be like Tom but it shows you can't please all of the people all of the time.

We need contrast among the panel. We need someone like Jessie to counterbalance Tom's personality. They are fine just as they are and Jessie is an important part of The Voice.

Jessie J is too annoying.

she reminds me of when Alexandra Burke did a guest jobbie on X Factor.

her feedback is next to useless: "song choice is sooooo important" is not even constructive or a criticism.

"it's about being true to yourself" is it really Jessica? because i'm pretty sure it's 99.9% about projecting the best image of yourself as possible regardless of the truth (see modern music from the 1960's onwards for details).

my wife won't even watch it anymore because of her.

A big LOL at your comment! I 'm sorry but she made a point about the song choice. She even prove it by making the guy sing another song. And all the panel was agree with her. As a musician, i'm backing Jessie J by saying that the song choice is realy important!
And about the "true to yoursel " thing! What did you expect her to tel to the candidates? "Ho, no, no you have to let yourself down and play another cahracter! It's what the industry is today. " Seriously! You don't even make sens in your criticisms!

I sometimes wonder if current singers are always the correct people to mentor upcoming acts on shows such as these. Yes, they have experience of being in the industry but is that enough? You don't need to be a singer in order to give feedback and critique - we do it here all the time after all.

Also, Jessie is still learning herself. She's still relatively a new act. I'm not going to be as silly to suggest she's a one-hit wonder, but she's still one album into her career.

I think she is always in danger of crossing over the edge into complete insanity. She often looks like she's frustrated, over-passionate, too involved and doesn't have enough distance. There will come a time, I think, when she will have had enough.

Tom, on the other hand, is laid back and cool. He says more in a few words what the others say in many.

my point is that i could have told the contestant that? what insight is that to bring to the table?

also that's exactly what she should be saying as it's what she's obviously learnt from the industry herself. art is about creating something bigger than yourself, creating a character that can overcome your individual frailties. it's the difference between Jessica Cornish and Jessie J!

i'm probably being a bit harsh on her as i've not seen everything she's said in every episode but based on saturdays show she's like a sub standard Dannii Minogue.

They spend about 15 minutes giving the contestants feedback. A lot of the technical stuff has been cut this year because last year a major complaint was that the public couldn't understand the terminology the coaches were using for the auditions. During the live shows, Tom and Jessie said they were told to not use too many technical terms anymore. Tom was trying to tell someone they had a good tone, but then backtracked and had to describe what he meant by it because that's what he was told.(I wonder ow the producers felt about him outing them like that) then Jessie would say something along the lines of...how can I say this so everyone will understand? Then give a dull answer like boring, really good, you had a nice note. She had to describe what falsetto and vibrato was at one point.

That's why this year I didn't take it as attention seeking when she sang back to the girl who was going too much into her throat to show her and the audience exactly what the girl was doing wrong. She said it, but if the general public don't know what a tone is, then she can't really expect them to know much else so why not use an example?

People like Will because he uses simple words like dope and fresh. It makes it so the viewer doesn't have to think as much. Those are easily identifiable words whereas, if you aren't a music junkie or into the technicality of developing a voice, you probably wouldn't hear vibrato, falsetto, head voice, chest belt, upper and lower registers, etc on a constant enough basis to understand what is being said.

I would guess that between them Will and Jessie have never read a book in their life. They appear to have zero vocabulary and use teenage chav speak. I can't understand Will at all. "You were dope"...

The only person who makes any sense is Tom Jones

That thought struck me when the Meat Loaf singer was on the other week. The woman was being judged by someone half her age and she had a No.1 hit in 1993 when Jessie would have been just starting primary school

We aren't in 1993, though. Nothing is the same as it was 20 years ago. I think some of you need to let go of this ageism. Being young doesn't mean someone doesn't know how something works. The Meat Loaf singer would be successful right now if she had those answers and knew it all, but she doesn't. If one can't be humble enough to learn from someone younger, they don't deserve to get anywhere. As an example, Jamie Foxx likes to say that quite a while ago(exactly 10 years ago actually) there was a young kid with a busted jaw and a backpack who hadn't released a record of his own yet who wanted him to sing a hook he wrote and Jamie sang it his way; the way that had him sells tons of records. The guy told Jamie not to do it and sing it the way he wanted Jamie to, so Jamie did and he thought the song was going to be horrible. He went so far as to say we will never hear of this guy again, but then Slow Jamz was a number one hit and Kanye West has been one of the most sought after producers ever since, not to mention his own records. Jamie always says from that point on he learned to never disregard someone younger than you just because you think your way that may have been popular is better. Jessie may be young, but she isn't stupid and for just one album and seven years in the business she has done alright for herself.

She can be annoying, but who would replace her ? Look at X-factor or BGT...and be careful what you wish for.
Exactly (except I don't find her annoying). I can't think of anyone else who could replace Jessie, bearing in mind that if she goes Tom will go too as he said he won't do the show if she's not in it.

I think you are taking things out of the context. She was just saying to the young girl to make her version of the song, to put Her personality in it. Watch again!
And even if I agree with you about the industry, can you imagine a coach saying to a young 18 year girl to creat another character ? That they are all doing that in the industry?! with 8 millons peoples watching? I don't think they're suicidal!

She is becoming a bit picky about voices ... yes she has a good voice but not everyone has a perfect pitch like she has.

She seems to have an overinflated opinion of herself. You would think she was Aretha Franklin the way she goes on. The truth is she's just another cheesy pop artist. She tries to do the whole Christian Aguilera thing but she's not in the same ball park.

Perfect pitch isn't a vocal quality, it's an aural ability. Jessie is very unlikely to have perfect pitch; most people (musicians included) don't.

ETA: Unless you meant accuracy of pitch in her singing. In which case I am an idiot.

I think the ability to sing convincingly and sell records is exactly the same

I think some of you need to let go of this ageism.
Would that be the sort of ageism where you can only have a record contract if you're young, slim and fertile?

Being young doesn't mean someone doesn't know how something works. The Meat Loaf singer would be successful right now if she had those answers and knew it all, but she doesn't.
She doesn't have youth and when Jessie J is 50, not only will nobody remember who she was, but she will look probably like the back end of a bus and no record company will touch her.

Seriously, what can she learn from Jessie J. She had a hit record when Jesse was 5 years old. It's not ageism, it's called experience

How can Jessie J who has released one of the worst reviewed albums of 2011 be allowed to judge music ability and talent. It's akin to asking a pub footballer to judge world class footballers.

Seriously why would anyone with a serious interest in music take advice from her?

I agree. I like the way she talks to the contestants and puts them at their ease.
