Jessie J thinks it’s a good thing The Voice tour has been cancelled to be honest.
“It’s always disappointing but you know what it’s not a bad thing I don’t think,” she told BBC Newsbeat backstage at a very windy Hackney Weekend.
Strictly speaking that’s a double negative but she clarified any confusion like so: ”Personally, maybe I shouldn’t say this but I will, I actually think it’s a good thing. Not that it’s been cancelled but that they’ve now got the opportunity to go out and do their own thing. For me it’s a bit too similar to other TV shows to do that tour thing.”
We think she means The X Factor but we’re not sure.
Basically, according to Jessie, it all fits in with the authentic ‘vibe’ of the show: “I think actually the artists have the opportunity now to do gigs around London and really learn their craft.”
As if that weren’t hard enough for Ruth-Ann St Luce ‘et al’ to hear, she then responded to a question about whether she still keeps in touch with any of her ‘team’ with a blunt: ”I have a career and so do they, so I can’t hold their hand now.”
She also said she’s not sure what’s happening in terms of her being on the show next year, but she did say that “it’s still an amazing memory in my mind and my heart”.
That’s a ‘no’ then.
