The Voice judge and singer has said that she thinks it should be illegal for young children to auditions for talent shows.
Jessie, 25, 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 BGT 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. I know however much greatness there is in this world, there are also a lot of mean people behind computers. Children need to be children.’
Her comments come just a few days after Bruce said he thought it would be ‘disastourous’ for a young child to appear on BGT.
Watch the Britain’s Got Talent final this Saturday on ITV at 7:30pm.
