Jessie J: BGT Children Should Be Illegal
The Voice coach hits out at Britain's Got Talent's use of youngsters...
Speaking at a press conference, The Voicecoach said: "I cannot agree with kids having to go through three or four auditions when it's purely for ridicule.
"I don't understand why it's legal, I think it's wrong.
"I watched Britain’s Got Talent auditions and there are these kids getting laughed at by the audience. I'm like, 'Woah, why?'
"I get very uncomfortable seeing young kids on stage because I know what it's like."
And despite the bumper crop of young acts making it through to the final in BGT this year, Jessie claimed that the public agrees with her.
She said: "They need to be children. I think the public, thank God, have finally realised that it's wrong."
Francine Lewis and 11-year-old Asanda Jezile are the latest contestants to make the BGT final.
