Jessie J has told Radio 1’s Newsbeat that she thinks it’s quite good that the planned post-series tour involving finalists from the UK version of ‘The Voice’ has been cancelled due to no one being interested in it even a little bit. It now gives the contestants a chance to “do gigs around London and really learn their craft”. Or in other words, do the thing they were entering a TV talent show in order to avoid. Presumably Jessie thinks the winner’s single not making the Top 40 is good for the same reasons.

She said: “It’s always disappointing, but you know what, it’s not a bad thing. 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. I think actually the artists have the opportunity now to do gigs around London and really learn their craft”.
