Jessie J: 'Kylie Minogue can teach Voice acts things I can't'

By
Jessie J has told Digital Spy that she believes her Voice UK replacement Kylie Minogue will be able to teach contestants things that she cannot.

The 'Thunder' singer, who stepped down as a coach in July along with Danny O'Donoghue, said that it was "really important" for the BBC show to recruit artists who can offer different perspectives on the industry.

"I really, really am happy that they've changed it up a bit and there's new people to teach them new things," she told us before switching on the Oxford Street Christmas lights tonight (November 12).

"Kylie will be able to teach them things that I couldn't. I think it's really important that it changes."

Jessie J also admitted her delight at suggestions that she has more stamina as a performer than the legendary Madonna, though she accepted that it will be a while before she is at the same level as the 55-year-old.

"My show is gruelling. It's 18 songs, just me, no dancers," she explained. "There was one lady in the toilets [at one of my shows] who said to my mum, 'She's fitter than Madonna'. My mum texted me and I was like, 'Yes!'

"Madonna's a living legend. I've got a few more years to do before I even get to that stage."

The Voice UK's new co-host Marvin Humes told Digital Spy last week that Minogue is "really getting stuck in" on the show.
